My F-one bar is pregnant...

Postby dt73775 » Sat Jul 12, 2014 6:06 am

Anybody got bulges developing on their bar???I've got a B5 9&7 and started noticing bulges in under the rubber. I'm gonna take it apart on the weekend and try and figure it out. If this has happened anyone else ....let me know what to expect......

its an F ONE bar, enough said!

F ONE = Bandits could be the best kites available :thumb:
but as for the Bar :lol:

fly your Bandits on a North Trust Quad Line Bar, I do!
series 4 to series 7 fit great on the bar, no adjustments req.

Could be corroding. Let us know when you take it apart.

The bars from B6 (2013) and later should not have this issues.

It's a well known problem on the B4 and B5 bars.
Fone customer care is superb and they are replacing all bars with new ones free of charge.
