Hi Toby,
since I am going to Cabarete for 2 weeks, I was wondering whether I needed any replacement loops. I was told that the new bars have a plastic bushing which lasts longer, but you never know.
Do you know how much these loops are? Where can I get them? How about the plastic bushing for the bar?
Thanks,
Nico

Did you get your X2s already?

And what do you mean did they change at the chicken loop? I don't understand. Speak german, please :wink:

Servus Oida,

ich meinte, dass die neuen Bars keine Stahldurchführung mehr haben, sondern angeblich eine aus Plastik, die sich langsam abnützt, dafür aber den Tampen schont. Wollte dazu gerne Feedback haben.
Gruss

PS: Warum übst Du mit Bindung nicht gerne neue Tricks? Da hauts einem das Board nicht so um die Ohren!

Hi Nico,

I didn't know about this reinforcment in the bar.
Makes sence. Ask your local dealer or ask Marina from Kitexcite in Cabarete if you can buy replacements there.

Don't they use this material already on the Aero? It is said that the chicken loop lasts much longer due to the material and that you can replace it. I don't think 2 weeks Cabarete kill the material, anyway...

the only thing is that I am not sure they will have this stuff in Cabarete, since replacement parts always seem to get shipped out much later

send an e-mail to marina@kitexcite.com and ask her if they sell any replacements in Cabarete.
