In 2016 we’ve continued with the well-received detachable four-point Nitrous bridal system introduced last year. This new addition, along three customization settings - Mega Loop, Freestyle and Freeride"

If I had to guess I'd imagine it's just a front line setting (without the bridle) that makes the kite fly faster through the window

The bridle makes the 2016 fuel fly worse in all conditions, worse megaloops worse unhooked and worse just free riding compared to using a 5th line on the fuel. They made several attachments on the bridle and labeled one of them "megaloop" but it was just a guess I think as the bridle wasn't designed that well at least the 2016 bridle wasn't.

The real megaloop settings are in your pants and made of brass.
