Yes, we do not think that you get th whole idea.
Granted, there were only so many solutions possible to come up with a leash that is always "on" and does not tangle when doing spins. Several ideas have been tried along those lines (pun..).
What is different here is that the central line is guided from a special attachment on the front lines, all the way down and through the bar.
You do not even realize that the small leash line is there, the bar behaves pretty much as if there was no leash. The Naish system starts twisting on a bigger and bigger radius if you spin the bar around it.
On the Bump And Jump system, the leash only spins around the chicken loop line, we assume that if you kept spinning forever, it would become a problem, but no more than the limitations brought by the kitelines themselves.
Why it took a lot of testing, mostly tuning, for several months there were tangling problems, then the system had to work on lines with slightly different lengths, and not be affected or loosened (creating sag and the possibility of upper entanglement) when you use the depower tuning system, lots of small details take a lot of time, back and forth etc...
The "REVOLUTION" is that all riders should now be able to wear a leash.
When we look at pictures of the Naish riders, we do not see any safeties being used, why if the system works? (disclaimer: we might be wrong on that since we do not pretend to have seen all available pictures). We hope to post pictures of Sebastien "Catman" Cattelan in action with the system soon.
Bump And Jump
being involved in developing the Kitebar-System I can't understand how you can call this revolutionary and one year of developing.
The X2 bar works this way, every setup with a Wichard works this way.
The problem was always that the depower and the leash wrap around each other.
Do many twists and the big gusts come and you want first to spin the line back manually (how can you spin it back anyway ig you don't use something like a wichard which can spin?) and then let go of the bar to be safe?
Sorry guys, ain't new.
Or do I get something wrong here?
