Re: ION CS Wave Harness, waiting but not sure now.

I see what you're saying, makes sense. For the record you can use a standard chicken loop sans donkey stick with this rope setup as well. For 2018 North Kiteboarding has a rope-specific chicken loop with a steel wrapped center section to minimize wear.

Re: ION CS Wave Harness, waiting but not sure now.

Alexyga... Good question. The Apex, Vertex,Selects, Madtrixx, Hummer, Nova, Nova Select, and Sol (and maybe some others), basically all our 2018 harnesses except the more pricepoint crossover harnesses will come with the same new molded C-Bar spreaderbar/pad. Initially for cost reasons we were going...

Re: ION CS Wave Harness, waiting but not sure now.

Alford- I'm not sure what you mean by "single pivo style rope connection" or BRM style, sorry. I moved the rope to get another photo, I don't see any hole in the middle. IMG_20180103_104751.jpg Either I'm looking in the wrong place or perhaps the photo you saw was of a pre-production prototype... Th...

Re: ION CS Wave Harness, waiting but not sure now.

Sorry for the delay in responding... Was out for a few days. Here's a photo of a production CS Wave harness spreader along with a replacement C Bar with standard hook just under it. You'll note that the attachment is different. The replacement hook ships with the clip so if you get a CS wave and a r...

Re: ION CS Wave Harness, waiting but not sure now.

Hey- As it should say in my signature, I work for Ion, so I'm biased. But I'll say that after many years in different jobs in this industry, every brand has some sort of QC or similar issue at some point. That said, I think Ion does a really good job of consistently building solid, reliable, well de...

Re: North Kiteboarding Issue 12/2017 - The Bubble

Whoa. Ozbungy... Not liking the video is fine, and posting that here is also fine but I think your anger is misdirected due to misunderstanding what this film is and how it was created... North Kiteboarding gave zero budget or direction for the making of this film. No money, no professional editing ...
