Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

So, I read a video comment somewhere that the next generation Stick Shift bar is making it's rounds. Any tech or info on it? Can't say much other than that we are far from done with the Stick Shift's bar design. It is our goal to continue to drive that bar's development forward for years to come. A...

Re: 3 bars from 3 manufacturers ? Or not

You're correct. 2018 all kites will fly with 4 equal line lengths. We are working now to produce web and video support for all customers to explain the change but in summary: 2018 kites with 2018 bars - no changes needed, flies out of the bag 2018 kite with 2017 (or earlier) bars - requires bar ada...

Re: 3 bars from 3 manufacturers ? Or not

Good decision. I am all for doing stuff different, being innovative and creative. But with something like this, now that there's a market standard, better to go with it. As a holder of a mix n match quiver, my wind-addled kite-brain will be grateful to not have to switch pigtails under beach sessio...

Should the flat surface face inside or outside? Thanks!! First of all, I apologize that you did not receive better instructions on this with th...

Re: another back line trim bar

However, to address your question, on a traditional front line trim bar when you've taken 6-9 inches of trim out, you've actually only shortened the front lines by 3-4.5 inches as the trim line is a 2:1 pulley. I use Slingshot Sentinel bars (which have a 2:1 pulley system) with the trim blocks (the...

Re: another back line trim bar

Still seems like it would end up pushing a rope sometimes... are the leaders something extra stiff? The bar features R3's patented Helix Force Tension system, you can read more on it on the Ocean Rodeo website . However, in summary, the back lines are held under tension so that the system isn't pus...

Re: another back line trim bar

Someone please straighten me out here. When I trim my kites for overpowered conditions, I am usually taking about 6 inches out of the front lines, maybe 9inches at max. Does this system allow for 6-9 inches of additional length to be added to the rear lines? And how do you regulate that if the depo...
