Re: BRM bar on a foil kite

@ SalmonSlayer I have a 10qm Soul 90kg and use it mainly with foil. To my feeling the Soul requires not more bar travel, Sonic2 is different. The steering lines must be at least 5cm shorter than the fronts to prevent overshooting. After 30-40cm of bar throw the steering lines get loose. Your plus 5...

Re: BRM bar on a foil kite

I am told that the 12m soul may need more bar travel than the CCS provides at ~27 inches. Can anyone confirm this? How much bar travel or throw does the 12m Soul require?

Here are a few minimalist bars I have made. I would like to make one for a 12m Soul rider,

Re: Best freeride bars for foil kites?

I'm looking for 50/60cm bars with 14-15m lines (preferably out of the box), relatively lightweight, long depower, strong enough for jumping, auto-untwist. I ride Souls. It seems like my needs are in-between normal bars and race bars, but curious if anyone has found good options out there. Thanks! W...

Re: 2 Fatalities in Tarifa

I'm not sure I completely agree with this. I don't know any kiter who considers rescue services as their "plan A". More likely they just don't expect anything to go wrong & don't have a plan A at all. I do know kiters that think it is OK to go out in marginal winds and use emergency services as pla...

Re: 2 Fatalities in Tarifa

I have been a commercial fisherman for many years. In my opinion most kiteboarders and people in general do not have enough respect for the sea. I am not criticizing them. It is just an educated observation. The are just not capable of making sound judgement calls. Locally riders go well outside swi...

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

Only really old cabrinha leashes have the part BRM uses. They’re hard to find. A 3mm stainless eye end cable fitting works fine. Episwiss.com is a source for similar premade parts. They’re expensive though, and look pretty chunky. Somewhere in China there is tooling to make the part, maybe it will ...

Re: How to build a bar? Just the rod/pole item ~60cm. Anyone done it?

Is impact resistance an issue. So far my opinion is that it is not Wouldn't Dyneema/Carbon make more sense? Impact resistance can be double compared to 100% carbon. See the slide from a DSM presentation and here is the full document: https://mega.nz/#!WeZ0VYBD!X-_9i9PmW55CpaFBz88LG-TagYkN1WxP05rnNG7...

Re: making a new control bar

Personal favourite release mechanism is the BRM Cloud system. I've customised mine, but the principle is the same. Really simple, great idea and it works well. No more chickenloop, so you can extend your bar throw if you wish. Or not. The release mechanism is also how you disconnect from the kite w...
