Re: Safest Control Bar

What do you guys think of Ozone's contact bar. Clean build, good chickenloop and never had problems with it. Pretty safe if you ask me. Ozone bars have always been pretty solid and dependable. But here's the thing, -if you were shopping for a new bar -if you aren't one of these who's gear just MUST...

Re: North Clickbar 2017 "cinch"/lock when steering the kite and power/depower at the same time?

Nobody's saying you're admitting a fault. You're admitting there have been complaints about too much friction. Which seems pretty relevant to me, given the topic starters question... and negative feedback is just as much information as positive feedback. For the average rider it probably won't matte...

Re: Ozone chickenloop safety warning issued

Not impressed with their quality as well (Especially bladder issues, tons of them. Impressed with the performance though...) but they always take care of it in a good manner. I never heard complaints about the new CL's, yet they issue a recall :thumb:

Re: Safest Control Bar

Cab trimlite gets my vote. People who hate on Cabrinha for doing recalls need to realise that's the responsible thing to do, the easy thing is to just let people keep using gear that might fail. Yeah, very responsible to blame customers with user error for 1,5 years, and putting out a recall when p...

Re: North Clickbar 2017 "cinch"/lock when steering the kite and power/depower at the same time?

Faxie- Not sure your info is accurate... A. The auto unwinding feature relies on the very LOW friction of our ceramic bearings to work. We have small narrow diameter steel rods inside the hole of the bar to try to minimize the friction between bar/PU depower that may occur if you're trying to simul...
