Why aren’t the big players making these as standard on there bars? Surely this is the way forward and an actual game changer for a lot of people instead of things like the north click bars extremly exspensive simple pigtail replacement system. something that is actually useful engineered into a bar?
Liability.

Good question.

Maybe liability, maybe not understanding that this tool is important for trick progression.

But, doesn’t matter if we soon get an add on that fits all bars.

Quick update - the creator of the "pro-hook" or "air-hook" (name TBD) had the parts for several prototypes sent to me and I received them today. Its a pretty elegant device that looks pretty effective. Next steps are for me to assemble some of the prototypes and then do some testing on different bars. Leaving the country tomorrow so this will probably be in the next 2 weeks, just in time for some wind. Stay tuned all !
