I can go with green for starboard on the bar, so that's OK.

That's the wrong way to do the ends on the trims. They should angle the plastic outward where the lines come through and put bigger balls than they used to on the ends of the lines with a small collar extension on the ball that rests against the angled plastic. One ball red, one black.
If they think they need it all the way down there, make the spring longer.

They should just scrap the entire thing as it's a complete load of junk, and always has been!

Or it may just be a photoshopped wind-up?

You can ajust the position from the spring on the bar. You can place it down. :)
The bar will be black and white just like Slingshot if I have it good.

I have found something, this must be the woman's line of kite:

"2013 Cabrinha Siren Collection Switchblade:
We also now offer the Siren Collection within the Switchblade specifically tailored to the ladies. Everything from the Susi Mai influenced graphics/colors down to specific features on the control system accommodates a smaller size person with a desire to ride something more feminine."

if they did away with the spring, chicken loop, and quick release(s) it wouldn't be too bad of a setup. It's a very safe and functional system it's just all kind of a mess

Hey Dylan, have you ridden the bar?

I really liked the 2012 bar and its the cleanest setup on the marked right now with no shit dangling around. Its the first bar I haven't had to customize to make me happy..

The Siren bar looks to be a good setup for chicks with shorter arms.

Black and white lines, not a fan of that.. snow is white and white lines suck!

I don't like the new color combo of the red/yellow but i did see a black/green one that looked dope..

New custom board look sick!

Looking forward to test em, been happy that I switched from Vegas to Switchblades.. I might be getting old :P
