LF 2012 CPR bar and swivel

Postby celly » Thu Sep 13, 2012 7:57 pm

Like many of us know the 2012 swivel on the LF CPR bar does NOT work. At the start of my session I make sure the two middle lines are not crossed or twisted but after a few hours of riding and crashing the center lines always end up twisted and winded. I try to untwist them but it doesnt seem to help. this is only of concern to me because there is now a lot of rubbing and friction being created on these lines and they are showing signs of fraying. any advise on how to avoid this or increase the life of these middle lines? It blows my mind how a company justifies selling a part that simply doesn't do what it is designed to do! ugh!

dont be that hard on lf, there is maybe one kite manufacturer that has a decent spinner. unhook and twist the chickenloop around or do a few kiteloops or backrolls. that twist in the lines is there to remind you to work on your weak direction.

He he Look no further.... Sweet 2013 all the LF bars are delivered with real front line spinners.

Not sure yet if a retrokit is available. To modify your old 2012 bar :P
