Great points and I agree. The 2015 bar has shorter sheeting length so the "coil" comes into play a bit more when needing to dump power. You actually need to push out a little on the spring where as previous years the bar just on the end would 100% depower. Also agree on the depower trim. I also hate how you cant really feel how much trim you've applied and also find myself repeatedly pulling on the black strap so get in my head that its trimmed to standard. Also, when you do trim in flight and your bar hand is in the middle, the bungees flick back and wack you in the bar hand. Not the worst thing in the world, but makes me appreciate my Core sensor bar more... simple depower rope and cleat. Easy and clean. The Cab Velocity Race bar has the depower rope... why cant the regular bar have that?marlboroughman wrote:Every time I use this bar I ask myself wtf is this??? First I keep hitting my fingers on that "override" bs where those two bungees are attached when riding with one hand. Second you can't feel how much you pull with those bungees, besides straps are so out of date even Best dumped them. And the mother of all Cabrinha contraptions the long metal spring. Sorry I just can't use the stupid thing. And how much you are paying for it? You got to be kidding.
Difference between 2015 and 2014 kites is very little.Timop wrote:I do not know about the 2015, but the 2014's stretched alot. I took out all the figure 8 knots on the steering lines to even them. Seems to hold now. I love the 2014 8, how does the 2015 compare?
