This thread continues to look at the new KITEPROSHOP.com KITEBAR-SYSTEM
I have no commercial kiteboarding affiliation whatsoever. I copied the following photos & information from the Kiteproshop website. I'm posting it here so the Forum can more easily evaluate the details of this new product.
Because this bar does offer some new safety solutions, I hope you will take the time to study this set up and help critique the design.
I applaud all kite manufactures who develop improved safety systems for our sport. These guys are pushing that envelope further by giving us significantly more depower ability when we need it. For instance, the X2 allows you to choose one of three knots on the leader lines depending on how much depower you want the bar to have. The problem is, you have to make that adjustment ON THE BEACH! The Kiteproshop bar lets you do the same thing but WHILE YOU'RE RIDING. That is huge. Increasing the depower range while on the water is a great step towards better safety. Plus it seems to have some other cool features too.
Anyway, everybody please take a close look at this material and let's discuss it more.
You can find all this and more on their website at:
