Who makes the smallest diameter bar? Can you measure the diameter of your bar and post it here? It doesn't have to be deadly accurate. Just eyeball it with a ruler and the nearest mm would do. I'll measure my bar when I get home tomorrow evening.

I have been testing kitebars lately and I think I prefer smaller diameter bars. Your contribution might help me to narrow my choices. Thanks!

yeh second the f-one. Really nice bar. Comfortable. Thinking of getting another one and swapping over my airush lines etc as the airush smart bar with the moulded thingies for your fingers just creates a bloody thick bar, stupid.

Test flew some Mutiny Kites in the Gorge with a small diameter bar. Actually quite comfortable, instead of squeezing your fingers around the bar, you can fly the kite quite aggressively using just your fingertips. Not sure of the bar diameter, I think it was about 3/4" OD.

EPIC KITES makes a small diameter bar for the kids called the "JUNIOR PRO BAR" but also small riders can use it such as ladies. :thumb:
