Introducing The Pilot Bar
Ocean Rodeo is proud to introduce the Pilot Bar, our cleanest, easiest to use front line trim bar. We’ve custom engineered the best time tested components and effective materials to ensure the Pilot bar delivers enhanced precision and control to front line trim while being consistently reliable and durable.
The Pilot Bar is available in two lengths; 46cm and 52cm, providing a sheeting throw of 20.5” (~52cm)
This bar is perfect companions with our lineup of Next Generation kites
More than just a block or pulley, this is the smoothest action roller we’ve ever used. Combined with the precision cleating action of the Cleat Lock you can micro trim with precision even when full powered.
Marine grade stainless steel for maximum bite. The dual purpose cleat lock provides easy trim control with superb line management via velcro hold down.
INTEGRATED BAR FLOATS
EVA Bar floats and bar ends are molded in one piece minimizing the chance of the bar wrapping around lines during wipeouts. Shock cord line holders make line storage a snap.
'HOUR GLASS' BAR OPENING
Made with marine grade stainless steel, the center hole is highly tapered to accept the rugged 12mm PU tubing. The refined shape delivers smooth sheeting at extreme angles.
'ALL IN' CENTER LINE
The rugged 12 mm diameter center line houses flag out depower line and primary load bearing center line. No exposed flag out lines or rope to chafe your fingers, abrade or tangle.
