What adjustable bars are there out there that flag to one line?

Looking for a different bar to fly my Ozone C4's on.

Does the switch bar flag to one line?

Criteria:
Locking in Chicken loop
Adjustable in Length
Centre lines 'v'ing down low towards depower strap/cleat
Above bar depower
Push away release

Epic's new bar :naughty:

IIRC the Switch bar flags to both front lines but you could easily mod it to make it flag to a single front line - or just use the 5th line system?

That's a tough one. Not much choice out there, Wainman is the second bar i'd take after Ozone's due to the plastic depower rope, but it's not adjustable either.

Look into the Epic's new 3G bar, Core, Zeeko - all of these seem to answer your criterias.

I'm facing the same dilemma - got 3 Ozone bars (S/M/L) that I really like for the safety, plastic depower rope and simplicity, but I really hate for the total lack of adjustability. Why do I have to carry 3 of these when I travel if with some other kite brands it only requires ONE????!!!!! :angryfire:

As a side note, being used to the smoothness and finger-burn-free operation of bars with a plasticized depower rope, I'm finding that I really don't like bars with a "normal" rope depower. Feels wrong... :nono:

Apologies - didn't realise there was a newer one than the current one.

If I were you I would build my own bar, use an adjustable bar, ozone's leader's, V and then replace their chicken loop with a push away. A lot of people in the forum build their own bars that way, find the parts of the bars they like and put together their favorites. Sometimes you have to drill a hole or add a pulley, but at the end of the day you have the perfect bar.
