How positive is the locking at any position. With the wipika system with the balck pu tube I find I need to keep some pressure twiting the bar to keep it locked in a position. This is nice because I can depower really easy by just relaxing the twist in a gust, but if I try to do a no handed jump it slips and depoweres in the air...not good Does the s2 lock in more firmly? Also is he selling those direct from his web site...any suppliers in the US???

what's wrong with their website?
when you type in s2kiteboarding.com the website from Gator shows up? That's why the pics don't work all the time. Maybe their site is online for only have a day. Or the working hours in their timezone. Not a good idea
Which tube, Andres? Can you explain it?

The white tube that crosses the middle of the chicken loop. I have seen some wipika bars have them too. It is clearly shown in the first picture at the beginning of the thread, on the smaler picture to the right.
I hope this explains it.

The white tube is for locking the depower loop to your harness bar.
So you donÃ‚Â´t unhook (and fully power the kite)if you crash.And it also prevents you from losing the depower loop if you are forced to pull the snap shackle
