Great find !! I took a look at the video and this guy is like Tom H., Dimitri, and Kevin L all fused into one crazy kiter. It looks to me like it was created with a 3D printer or something. I am definitely curious as to how he created this and more importantly...where can we pick one up !!

Reply from Aurelien:

Hi toby, i bought the north micro loop on the market, and custom made for the micro hook for using on the fone bar.

I asked for pictures of the hook and will post it when I have it.

I think he'd have to drill an F-one bar to insert the North micro-loop.

I drilled my LF bar to take a North micro-loop. It was pretty simple. You need need to use a slightly larger drill bit for the holes on top of the bar and a smaller bit for holes on the bottom. Also, angle the micro-loop slightly away from your body (see Aurelien's photo above) so that, when the bar is in a neutral position, the micro-loop won't get hooked by mistake.

Attaching the micro-loop is the easy part......it's the hook that is challenging unless you're using an older North bar.

The microloop looks straight forward, for the hook it looks like a custom made plastic piece which fits on the depower rope directly with a screw? I do not know the f-one bar enough to see if it is attached to the chickenloop? Also not clear if its made of one piece or two pieces.. A more detailed picture of the hook and its fixation would be great!!
