Our R&D focused on the quick release functions in order to offer the unique & simple Absolut System Loop or ASL. This new push away quick release with one click closing. Easy to use the ASL can be activated with efforts lower than 10N and can be re-connected one hand easily.

The Absolut System Loop One Clic Push Away quick release is equiped of an un-twist head bloc which is matching the SynapS center bar shape. Riders can proceed with rotation tricks without thinking of the flying lines.

The one click reconnection of the Absolut System Loop is simplified and can be achieved one hand without pushing up the opening handle.

The front lines trim system is controlled by a small size 5 cm Clamcleat located on top the depowerline. You can easily adjust kite power by small increments in a very short time. The trim handle is covered with a soft velcro face in order to stick it on the clam cleat and avoid the trim rope to fly in your lines.

The moulded PU dick with two diameters shape is easy to engage into your harness hook and lock your chicken loop in securly.
New hardware parts

The SynapS Bar Universal was designed overall to make it easy to use. The stainless steel center bar is inserted into two alloy 6061 tubes mainly used for aiplanes main structures. The 6061 alloy is having high corrosion resistance quality as well as high bending strength capacities.

The whole bar is covered with a unique EVA diamonds grip with regular red side left hand for more convenience.

The new EVA bar ends are soft enough to protect surf boards from shock and stiff enough to maintain flying lines up in all circumstances. Storing lines area is wide enough to roll your lines even with extension smoothly & easily.

The steering lines are protected with a PU tube to keep them up all time & make them softer and handy.

The safety line is connected to one front line only to ensure the best kite depower possible. Its is now fully integrated into our depower line which protect it perfectly from any tear & wear. Both the safetyline & depowerline are into an independant chambers and cannot be twisted together. This safety line setup is making bar movements smoother either up and down or tis rotation.

3 years of R&D, prototypes testing in order to offer a simple, efficent, ergonomic control bar with unique & exclusive functions!

Our SynapS Bar is matching the AFNOR NF S52-503 standard.

The only unique feature that I see with this bar is the ability to reload the CL with only one hand (0:48 in the vid). I also like that when the CL opens, the lock-pin folds inward like on North's Iron Heart, eliminating the possibility of an injury from an exposed lock-pin like found on many other release systems.
It also has all of the other popular or preferred features that are now becoming ubiquitous on modern bars (aspects of North and Ozone bars imo). And last, it has the safest and most proven color-way for the bar, so in summary I have to say this new SynapS bar is a very promising addition. Kudos!

Looks clean, nice job. Like it a lot better than their old QR system.

Those 1-click reset systems do look nice, but because of the way they work I do think they're more sensitive to jamming up. Time will tell...

Is this different than the Synaps bar that was released about 6 months ago?

LOLOLOLOL so much marketing garbage. Why not just say "all the modern features that better bars have had for almost a decade." Also that figure 8 leash attachment is shown misused two times in the video.
