Re: easily reset chickenloops

I completely agree. Over a year riding, couple times week, with the new system haven't had a single accidental release. I only surfkite in big swell though, I dont mega loop. Still nice to know that if you need to quick release for whatever reason, you can easily reset with one hand very quickly. M...

Re: easily reset chickenloops

People dont seem to realize this. To reset the ozone release you just insert the buckle in, like a seat belt. No pushing up on the release to lock it in. Very fast and cant imagine something any easier. In a few years this type of system will probably be standard for all kite makers. https://www.fa...

Re: New Flysurfer STOKE and new BAR

Iron heart lives on! https://flysurfer.com/files/2019/05/FORCE-Control-Bar_QuickRelease4.jpg Very good, solid QR and a safe choice to use. One-click resets are so overrated. New bar looks decent, but nothing special. But it doesn't have to be. Never really see any Stokes on the water, only Boosts. ...

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

Hmmm ... 12 pages of messages if a pro athlete gets injured but if somebody dies because he/she couldn't release the threads are typically much shorter. I feel sorry for Ruben but the 0.1% that throw 50 foot mega loops and turn the bar by 90 degrees (!!!) and touch/move the quick release need a dif...

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

I did. So if you don’t believe Rubens explanation, and the video which shows it happening, plus the later one where he explains it further, then refer to the above. Which do you think - misguided or lying? If it’s the latter then you presumably think he is content to put the lives of other kitesurf...

So presumably you believe he is lying to protect Ozone, and in doing so deliberately endangering other kitesurfers who use the product?
Are you saying he doesn't have an issue with his release?

His broken leg is imaginary?

Most of the discussion here is the internet version of hot air as far as I can see. Not a single user has come forward with actual known issues or failure with this release. I had 2 bars with it on and had no issues at all.
Yeah, tell that to Ruben.

Re: Ruben Lenten - My most painful kiteboarding accident (broke my leg)

Here is a very clear view of what actually happened to Ruben, and it has a voice over from Ruben as well. https://www.instagram.com/p/BxIKF9sl9RM/?igshid=bdohwsd806f1 When he rigs, and during the first loop, he's not suicide. During the last loop, he is... probably not the same session. Having watc...
