For me, a spreader bar provides a great level of safety in that I can simply unhook the cl if the cl eject won't work. Granted, sometimes the hook is obscured by my jacket but you can't deny the benefits especially if you use no dd. Of course spreader bar hooks snap off but anyway.......... btw, I was quite shocked when ozone released the harness with no spreader bar. I don't think it was appropriate.KiteDR wrote:I've wondered this too - specifically with the question of using a climbing harness... what is the importance of a spreader bar, especially on harnesses other than a waist harness?

I am thinking about it for a while. I'll probably go just for the sliding rope. I don't see how it could hurt. Some times I would like to twist my body a bit more upwind and same on the water with my UD board, but there's too much rotational force from the fixed SB, and I can't. And it wouldn't work for me on snow with my jacket solution. It is probably more comfortable for carving too.NHKitesurfer wrote:How about a sliding spreader bar? Help? Hurt?
