About the Best GP Freestyle Kite Control Bar
If you going to be a freestyle superstar then you need a bar that is built to handle any abuse you can throw at it and exceed your aspirations for quality and performance. The GP-Bar is designed to be the ultimate 5-line kite control bar and it’s packed full of high-tech construction, durability, safety and ease of use features that will help you dominate.
The Pro-cuff+ QR has been revised with a more intuitively shaped grip area, when you need to activate your safety you can be sure it will work first time, every time. We know you set your own standards high but you can kite safe in the knowledge that the Pro-cuff+ QR meets international safety testing standards and has one of most consistent and easy to reassemble QR that you can ride.
Above the double thickness, 8mm Depower Line you’ll find an all new depower cleat design. Built from the ground up for one handed operation and maximum flexibility it allows you customize your bar for bar travel, depower reach and cleat height. Add o this the revised Back Line Adjusters and you have complete control over every aspect of your bar rigging. A new Front Line Tidy keeps your lines and 5th-line safety running smoothly above the bar while the Underbar Swivel helps locate your chickenloop securely into the underside of the low friction Delrin Bar inserts, ensuring that the transition from unhooked to hooked is as easy as possible. For those times when you don’t make the pass you’ll be glad that we have reinforced the handlepass leash and added a new one-handed, Pinless Safety release that works just like your favorite Pro-cuff+ QR.
The GP-bar package is finished off with a super tacky, no-slip grip. Extra heavy duty front flying lines are built to take any abuse you can deliver and all flying and leader lines are impregnated with a new low-friction coating to keep the sand out of the weave. The GP-Bar is designed specifically for our GP C-kite and has been tuned and tested by our entire pro-team- it’s the most advanced 5th-line bar we’ve ever made. Take one for a spin today and begin your dominance.
About the Best Red Line Performance Kite Control Bar
Your bar is the cockpit of your kite and because you’d rather be flying a Lear jet than a crop duster we’ve engineered the RP-Bar to match your aspirations. Packed with innovative technology and advanced construction features the RP-Bar is the definitive 4-line kite control bar.
The improved Pro-cuff+ QR is easier to service and activate. With a new grip pattern and retaining bungees it releases a 250kg load with one of the lowest trigger pressures on the market and meets international testing standards. Our Pinless Safety Leash connects your kite to your harness and is fitted with a mini version of the Pro-cuff+ QR that’s easy and reliable to use. Low friction Delrin Bar Inserts help eliminate depower line wear and hold your chickenloop rock solid when you ride unhooked.
Above the bar you’ll find a depower cleat that provides you with easy one handed depower. You can adjust your bar travel, depower reach and cleat height. Used with our revised back line adjusters you now have absolute control over how your bar is rigged. We’ve added a new Front Line Tidy above the depower that connects your front flying and safety lines together keeping them tangle free and allowing you to swap between single left or right handed front line safety. All flying lines have been upgraded with a new slick line coating and we’ve added more color to make rigging easier. Naturally we’ve kept the dual Depower Stopper to take the strain off your arms and it works in tandem with the Redline Safety giving you comfort and control that you can trust.
The Underbar Swivel has a larger bearing surface and more aggressive grip pattern to make un-spinning your lines even easier. All flying and depower lines have a new low friction coating that keeps the sand out of the weave and enhances durability. We’ve topped the bar off with new BABEs (Big Ass Bar Ends), hiding our lightweight, composite reinforced plastic bar ends inside even softer and more face friendly EVA bar end covers.
The RP-Bar is improved with new and innovative product features for 2014 and we’ve refined all those that made it such a smash hit with riders last year. It’s the most advanced and safest bar we’ve ever made and the perfect complement to any of our 4-line kites. Pick one up today and start learning to fly by wire.
