There are other adjustable bars on the market with a V-split. Check the new Blade's bar for instance, Airush, etc. Choosing a kite in function of the bar it comes with is just plain silly. The bar is nothing but a tool, but it's the kite that is your horse!

I replaced the Ozone CL with a Switc. CL, which is similar to the North but about 4 times cheaper. Used the North depower line , just becauseI had one . Now I have a real unspin and preferred release with same flag action.

Ozone kites do not have pulleys and the only reason North kites do is so the front lines can be used as the saftey system..No pulleys means no twin front line saftey..... only a kite that will try and fly on the front lines when you go to the flag line (Red saftey to front line Y) on the north bar... If you wanna fly a north kite on a ozone bar then that will work.

Wow, safety that depends on 2 pulleys and a line to work!
I thought only cabrinha had that.

Maybe next someone will invent a system that relies on the perfect function of 3 pulleys, bubble gum and a wind up alarm clock to flag the kite! :o

I think I will stick with kites that are flagged out and "killed" by leashing to/pulling on ANY of the 4 or 5 lies attached to them. :idea:

Don t like the look of the bar or don t actually like it - having used it? Don t be put off by what you see. As others have said it really is one of the best bar and control systems out there - give it a chance.
