Don't bother with a GK upgrade - just get a Best bar - or have a look at the Naish Smart Loop bar :thumb:

I went from GK bar to Best 2007 bar and it made a huge difference 8) Loads better

it is great to see that GK is stepping up and is using a push up release for their quick release.

This is another big step towards our safety and a better future for the sport.

I know from 2 more companies for 2010 who will do a push up release.

Then we are almost at the most important goal for out sport: the same type of quick release.

Thanks GK for doing it, this is sooo important! :thumb:

Get the 09 GK bar upgrade, it looks to be very good.
And small, and the QR is a push away type and super simple.
If you look on the globespirit.com website there are lots of videos showing how easy it is to use the new QR.
And the power strap position relative to you is easy to adjust, so if you have short arms it's only takes a few seconds to move the power strap closer to you so that you can reach
And you can hear Mat Pendle saying that GK will do a special deal for all existing GK users, even as far back as 06 kite users.
See pics below of the bar and new VSonic and Trix graphics!
