You're right, it's ugly and the old version was way better

They will probably meet a lot of resistance from kiters like me. I have been flying many models of kites for years with red on the left and that is instinctively what I look for. I fly Ozone Chronos and also other kites that aren't Ozone and I don't want to mix my color schemes. Naish tried using yellow on one side of their bars a few years back and finally had to go back to the classic red on the left.

We shall see, but I think it's a case of a product graphic designer (who probably doesn't even kite) leading Ozone in a mistaken direction. I certainly won't buy that bar.

The Ozone bar is great, but what have they done to the colours? FFS!
When I crash and lose grip on the bar for a few seconds,I fumble around trying to grab it again, with the hope of maybe keeping the kite flying, I tend to go for the red side with my left hand (just my way of remembering).
Going to be hard with eyes full of salt water to see which is the red side with this.

I agree with previous comments. This color scheme is plain stupid.

You guys know there is such a thing as red tape? If the only gripe is the color, that is pretty easy to work around. just sayin

It is not the only thing but I share cglaziere opinion.
Additionally, I would prefer a bar with the grip that will instantly tell my grab is correct even if my hand is underwater and I can't see the coulors. It is just a matter of significant assymetry of bar cross section.
