Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

Nah, will be all good.

No problem, as long as the 4ft bar on the 2 liner is a click bar.

Click bar marketing copy should be studied in marketing MAs.

My fave comment so far is " adjust your click bar while you ride a wave" lmfao

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

Wow......a lot of talk about overly complicated and unnecessary engineering in today's kite gear. Thus resulting in unverified gear failure deaths and a subsequent unattainable price point for the next generation of riders...... What a conundrum. We're so blessed to be enlightened by such purists l...

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

It is a reflection of the kiting industry in 2019. Unnecessary, over complex, over priced equipment that does nothing to encourage a younger generation. Longwhite check out the Cabrinha trimlite control bar. It's so incredibly simple I couldn't believe it came from cabrinha. Good for you Cabrinha! ...

What next... young ripping team riders telling a new generation of potential kiters how they need an alulla kite cos it's got so much drift (lol), ...

Re: Naish Torch 2019 & 2020

Odd huh.

10m torch is my fave ever kite.

I have a small suspicion it may be being phased out.. not fully sure tho. There isn't one pic of the mini bridle option I have ever seen too.

I just missed 3 used 2019s by a day. Fuuuuu#%^

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

Interesting reading again. It is part of the current over technicalisation of kiteboarding equipment and the marketing concept of percieved added value ( higher profit margins). However you look at it there are little to no benefits in reality. It is something that anyone can easily do with their cu...

Re: what type of control bar is this?

Could convert that to fixed line, no depower, awesome if you downwind somewhere with reasonably steady wind and are a very experienced kiter. Easy unhooked freedom.

Re: Duotone Click vs Trust bar

thx for pics -it's interesting seeing the engineering - kind of a coil /reel ratchet and spring. Moving parts, sand, unseen wear, maintenance, heavier, way more expensive RRP, filding around on one side of the bar in gusty situations - one steering side, harder to release under load, the dodgy china...
