North/Duotone click bar with Core kites

Postby k2thiago » Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:22 am

I am thinking in try this combination, as I’m starting to see some discounts in the 2018 clickbar. Would the V adjuster make it possible to adjust perfectly for the Core kites? Both brands have a high v but I wonder if the mix would work fine. Have anyone tried? I do need another bar, and I am not really impressed by the Core bar as I am by the kites itself.

2018 Click bar will work very well on a Core kite. Leave the V distributor on the red position, which is the stock standard it comes on.
Compared to the Core bar, other than the benefit of the click system itself, you will have more throw, a stopper, and more trimming range (17cm against 10cm on Core bar)
And of course you get to pick the chicken loop that fits your riding style ;)
Don't hesitate to contact me through private message if you have a question about your Click bar.
Remember to give it a little rince through the rubber plugs, every now and then, to flush the little sand that can find its way in the mechanism.
I'm sure you will love the Click bar!

They'll make the kite feel like a slug, whatever you think about the bar, the Core lines tend to be more responsive (less give) hence there's more feedback, particularly on the Pro bar.

I don't think Core kite pigtails match the standard North setup. I believe you can flip the pick tails on the line ends to match..., but never tried it myself.
