Don't know if you understand the QR completely. The rubber ring is just a secondary to keep the clip in place. Works without, but might be a bit iffy. I understand your concern: Why re- invent the wheel? I don't think the de-power on the chicken loop is safe either, but they are just following the flow. The current system works but gets tangled.

So all users can operate the QR without anything to get used to."
to me that sounds like a nightmare. I mean how often is the quick release used. I know its necessary but i see no need to make it so easy to release. Do you want people to kite or be ejecting there kite all the time? What motion won't engage the quick release system? I have seen the 08 QR release with little or no direct input to release itself, putting riders in precarious positions, once even dragging a rider across a dock.
trusting your safety to a rubber band holding your chicken loop together? love the kite but feel like i am walking on egg shells when using the bar.
Please rethink your chicken loop setup and go back to something already proven to work and not release whenever touched the wrong way
Looking forward to it!eastcoastkite wrote:Now for 2009 the quick release will not be able to open up
if you hit it on accident because there will be no trigger on the releaser.
We will make a video on the bar soon.
