Re: 3 bars from 3 manufacturers ? Or not

You're correct. 2018 all kites will fly with 4 equal line lengths. We are working now to produce web and video support for all customers to explain the change but in summary: 2018 kites with 2018 bars - no changes needed, flies out of the bag 2018 kite with 2017 (or earlier) bars - requires bar ada...

Re: 3 bars from 3 manufacturers ? Or not

Good decision. I am all for doing stuff different, being innovative and creative. But with something like this, now that there's a market standard, better to go with it. As a holder of a mix n match quiver, my wind-addled kite-brain will be grateful to not have to switch pigtails under beach sessio...

Re: The Jester - The Duke's courtyard entertainer

Quick question on the fins of my Mako Duke (older 2015 model)....the 2 side fins have one completely flat face and one with a slight bevel around the edge. Should the flat surface face inside or outside? Thanks!! First of all, I apologize that you did not receive better instructions on this with th...

Re: another back line trim bar

However, to address your question, on a traditional front line trim bar when you've taken 6-9 inches of trim out, you've actually only shortened the front lines by 3-4.5 inches as the trim line is a 2:1 pulley. I use Slingshot Sentinel bars (which have a 2:1 pulley system) with the trim blocks (the...

Re: another back line trim bar

Still seems like it would end up pushing a rope sometimes... are the leaders something extra stiff? The bar features R3's patented Helix Force Tension system, you can read more on it on the Ocean Rodeo website . However, in summary, the back lines are held under tension so that the system isn't pus...

Re: another back line trim bar

Someone please straighten me out here. When I trim my kites for overpowered conditions, I am usually taking about 6 inches out of the front lines, maybe 9inches at max. Does this system allow for 6-9 inches of additional length to be added to the rear lines? And how do you regulate that if the depo...

Re: Back Line Trim Control, Introducing The Stick Shift Control Bar

@ORSales, any word on if/when your adjustable stopper will be sold separately for other bars with PU tubing etc? Sounds useful for Airstyle and taking tension off the arms when needed. This remains a priority for us but it's slipped on the schedule due to the day-to-day push and pull of running a b...
