Composite Kiteboard Control Bar
Ultra lightweight, ergonomic composite kiteboarding control bar.
Our new bar is a whole new dimension in using a control bar for riding the kite. Featuring a back line kite trimming system to replace current front line trimming systems, and a single body injection molded structure, this new bar concept opens up ways for enhanced safety and kite landing, as well as improved ergonomics and accuracy for trimming the kite.
What’s New in the V2
NEW REINFORCEMENT CENTRE PIECE BAR
Made with marine-grade stainless steel, the centre hole is highly tapered to accept the rugged 12mm PU tubing. The refined shape allows for smooth sheeting at extreme angles.
ALL NEW EVA GRIP
A new grip was moulded with softer grip for greater comfort especially during long sessions.
NEW QUICK RELEASE
Reliable in both slack line and full powered situations, the push away motion works in opposition to the static connection between rider and control bar, providing a smooth release in all situations. Added benefits of the Trim Loop Include:
Improved safety: the stainless steel release pin is now protected by the release cuff, guarding your hand during activation
Easy reset: push release cuff remains locked up and ready to reset after an eject making reset quite literally a “snap”
Below bar line swivel “Roto Hub” has been refined, offering a smoother re-ride action and line twist management.
The trim loop is pre moulded into a U shape, making reset even easier when combined with the automatic docking and push reset feature.
Improved donkey dick: tapered shape holds the trim loop in place in the event of slack line or extreme sheeting angles, reducing the chance of unwanted unhooking.
Bar End Trim Adjustor
Kite trimming involves reducing or increasing the length of the back lines of a four-line sports kite relative to the front lines, in order to adjust the kite power to wind conditions or rider preference. The Blue Chip bar features an ergonomically placed winder that doubles as powering and depowering control. The winder is turned clockwise to power up, and nudged outward to depower. This allows you to keep the bar in both hands when depowering.
The winding mechanism only has a minimum of moving parts and is easy to inspect and maintain. The U-shaped bar structure is optimized to flush away any sand and debris buildup.
Adjustable Bar Stopper
Designed to allow for easy, on-the-fly adjustment of a kiteboarding bar’s overall sheeting range. Allows for single handed adjustments and requires no special tools. Works with all kiteboarding control bars which feature a PU coated center trim line.
