New bars are coming with new motto grip. The letters are set deeper on the bar wrap and also added some color on the bar ends. Also the bar hole is much smoother and rounder around the center to make it easier to grab on to in mid pass. The T3 will be the first with new bar.

Pro bar should be making its way out but probably not till the 09 Fuel comes out.

Things are changing. :naughty:

Stuff waiting Shymac...... I want mine now! That looks sweet.

Seriously though, why are they not available? Obviously you have a couple already produced why not a few more. I would buy one straight away as I have always raved about the quality of SS kites but those bars...... now thats another story.

Yes, I liked it. Flew very similar to the T2 (they didn't break anything) but it had a lot of feature upgrades that I really liked (bar, bridle, canopy, safety). I wanted to fly it in 1:1 mode, but didn't get the chance.

any more info on this bar. I really want one, and my 07 bar is falling apart :(
When will the shops be able to get this, or does it not have a release date yet??

thanks
