RACE CONTROL BAR PRO
We know that in competitions every small advantage counts. This race version of our RACE BAR PRO offers you a few trump cards: thinner low-drag flying line construction, a 4:1 Pulley Clam-Cleat Adjuster, and optimized line guidance through the Double-V-Shaped Eyelet. Choose the optimal length of our low drag flying lines in 12m – 15m – 17m for your favorite kite size.
|TECHNOLOGY||Control Bar (incl. Quick Release)|
|SIZES||50 cm / 60 cm width|
Quick Release 3.0
The Quick Release 3.0 (QR 3.0) is the core of the bar. It not only meets the French standard (AFNOR) in terms of safety and activation forces, it is also extremely robust, compact, lightweight and of course reliable. A flexible, unbreakable Chicken Dick and a new ergonomic handle allow a quick and easy release of the kite in an emergency situation.
Ergonomic Grip Design
The slim, lightweight Control Bar features a fresh-green signal color on the right-hand side and is available in two lengths – 50 and 60cm. The abrasion-resistant, ergonomic EVA grip is extremely comfortable for the hand and assures solid control even in cold or wet conditions.
The optimized and reduced-friction Double-V-Shaped Eyelet ensures an easy and direct steering response. The powering up and depower function works even when you turn the Bar.
Clam-Cleat Race Adjuster
The smooth-running 4:1 Pulley with Clam Cleat Race Adjuster stands apart with its simple and precise adjustment possibilities (with a 55cm-long depower distance).
12m - 15m - 17m Low Drag Race Flying Lines
For the Race flying lines, we have worked to find an optimal balance between diameter reduction and breaking load (front 1.45mm / 300kg – Back 0.8mm / 160kg). Additionally, we have conciously included a very short Frontline Safety (FLS), which represents an extension of a front line. This reduces the air resistance of the entire Race flying-line construction, which has the direct advantage of allowing the kit to reach higher speeds. Finally, the line guidance is optimized by the double-V-Shaped eyelet in the Bar handle. For years we have put our trust in our partner LIROS for supplying high-quality lines.
On the integrated winder you can change the bar width by up to 5 cm, which is recommended when using a bar for many kite sizes. Additionally, the control lines can be adjusted below the floaters, meaning you can counteract the effects of shortened steering lines and tendency to backstall. These features allow the bar setup to be individually adjusted to the rider.
