I bought 2 kites BS 2009 with bar used.
I'm assuming you meant two Switchblade kites? Cabrinha's 2009 Switchblades I believe were spec'ed with a front "two-line" safety system (mini-5th) up till 2013. Two-line safety systems have been pretty much phased out now, including Cabrinha's, but many (not all) older kites will work fine with modern "single-line" safety systems.
I'm not sure about Cab's backwards compatibility, so I'd recommend contacting them and confirming if their "single-line" safety bars going back to 2014 to present are compatible. I'm sure someone will eventually chime in confirming this as well.
If considering going with a different brand bar, you'll need to confirm if the 2009 Cab was designed for a high V point on the front lines or a low V. I can't remember how their kite was designed back then. Lets say it was a low V design... if that's the case, then almost any modern bar ranging at 48-55cm width would work well (good width range for 10-14m kites).
If it's a high V, then your options are very limited now. Duotone, 2018-older North, Core, and F-One are about it with some smaller brands also having some offerings. F-One's 2018 Linx bar has an adjustable V point making it work on both styles of kites, so that could be a possible option. The North/Duotone Click bar also has an adjustable V point.
