They're calling the new bar a "benchmark in the industry.."
More like they finally learned from everyone else in the industry how to do it right.
They still need to learn from North how to build the donkey stick into the loop that wont break or tear off like the old cab sticks did. Its best to steer clear of first run editions of control systems.
Best of luck to them regardless, I know some folks love the kites.
They are getting closer. I'm still not a fan of the bar width adjustment. I would set that for the kite and not change kites while riding, so a much lighter, simpler and cheaper solution is available.
I don't understand the loop shown in the C.A.D. of the swivel above the chickenloop. Surely they could just tie a knot in the end of the depower main line?
The sharp edges on the leash swivel don't look like a good idea.
The newest Cab bar I have is the 2013. The 2015 chickenloop release/reassembly is the biggest improvement.
