firstly I would like to thank you for your interest about our new Ultimate bar.
The bar was tested during months and I hope all of you will have a ride with.
I'll try to reply to all your questions.
Firstly we develop this system to suit all styles of rides.
The concept is very simple, we have one pulley on the top (the load is minimal on it due to the depower design, no need of very strenght piece, when you have a total of 200Kg load, on the pulley is only 100Kg. It is made to resist at 300Kg.) and a Stopper whichhave 3 functions:
- Stopper fonction: Plastic Stopper
- Depower fonction: Red Handle
- Power fonction: Black Handle
The colors are dedicated following what you can find on the market: depower= red Handle; power = Black handle, as we did before and other brands too.
What are the advantages:
- The trimming device can be moved where you want.
There is no problem anymore for the short arms riders to grab the depower/power device. You choose yoursel where you want it. If you want to untwist lines during a kiteloop, just move it closer to the chicken loop to keep the power of the kite.
- Powered or depowered: all the lines are always stretched.
The depower line design makes the system very clean and avoid any dangling
- You choose your depower length and the power management.
This system is in the same vein than the 2011 bar we introduced with the trimmable depower line length. But with the ultimate bar, we made a step forward, making this trimming quicker and easier thanks to the stopper.
The stopper is the key of the system and the strenght of the stopper is trimmable
adding or not the H-Stopper (there is a video to add the H-Stopper). When you pull one of the handles to have more or less power, it moves the stopper closer to the chicken loop. During ride, usually you just move it by some centimeters. To move it back you have 2 ways: moove it by hands or just push the bar.
Without the H-Stopper, the force to moove the stopper by pushing the bar is very light
. In fact if you just let go of the bar, when the bar hits the stopper it will move by some cm.
Thanks to this trimming, this is also one of the safest system. For example, when you hit a gust, what is the safest? grabbing as quick as possible a depower device or just push the bar pushing the stopper and have an extra depower ability? for me the choice is simple.
If you don't want this effect (or just have it less), add the H-Stopper. The H-Stopper makes the system a little harder to move, but you can still moove it
, this is not a fixed stopper. This H-stopper is dedicated for freestylers or people who want a harder stopper and have the stopper doesn't move when you let go of the bar. But you still can move it pushing the bar with one hand.
In this way, the system makes a huge advantage compare to fixed depower line length. When you it a gust, you can have an extra depower. The depower line length is adaptative to your desires even if you desire change every second. Isn't it good?
about your questions: changing the depower line is very easy not need any tools, we are preparing a video to show you it.
About aging of depower line, it is same as other system with a stopper.
For the side of the handles (red or black) it changes when you use the swivel, finally like other system. The thing is: more power: black handle, less power red handle, you can grab with both hands the handle even is it is on the opposite side.
don't hesitate if you tried the system to post your review or if you have any questions
