Re: How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

Ozbugy if you look at my initial postings you would see why. Just so you know I've been riding since 2012 starting on SnowKiting (with RamAir kites) and transitioning to LEI and KiteBoarding (TwinTip) then later on to KiteSurfing (waves with surfboard) => so we're not talking here about the princip...

Re: How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

"Knot_moving" it sounds to me that I'm not the only "knot-case" :D in here that wants to build a bar to benchmark it to the brand bars :D :D :D Anyway once you build it please do post info and pix here so we can learn from each other :) We may start a curent here to "build-own-bars" rather then pay...

Re: How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

Wow - your idea and the movie you just sent simplify things to the minimum requirements needed for an entry-level situation like mine !!! Our other friends ideas and infos are great for down the line when I'm getting good at this (like splicing, etc) but the fastest config right now is with this Ca...

Re: How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

Thanks Herman, I'm thinking since there are lots of 4:1 users especially into the Racing community as well as the Foil community around the world, not to mention the regular brands like Core and others which uses the 4:1 system as standard on all their bars. To me doing this custom bar it adds to t...

Re: How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

I just got back from Europe and had the chance to try there a LEY kite specifically made for hydrofoiling called "Kauper" and intend to order me one of those in 9m size. Honestly I didn't like the bar Kauper comes with,... but I've seen lots of people riding the carbon bars like "Groove" and "SK" w...

Re: How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

I know West Marine, been there few times - but as you said, there are quite a few stores around here around Atlanta metro area so I will search them a bit :) When you went into the local store did they do the splicing in the store for you (or would they know/want to to that for customers) ? I'm ask...

Re: How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

Great drawing
- I already had the idea how the 4:1 goes but this drawing it will make it that much easier for me.
Where would you recommend to get the dynema for the Longer Line and what type/brand should I look for ? :)

Re: How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

Hello Herman, - the Navigator Depower Line is going inside the tube and comes out on top of the Cleat ending with a LOOP. - the Trimming Line (and in near future the Longer Line that goes to the Swivel) connects on this LOOP. In the navigator Is the trim strap made up from the a continuation of the ...

Re: How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

Needless to say I just lost you at certain point, I am fairly decent at technical stuff but definitely not as technical as you are. :D I will try to follow your instruction up to wherever point I can, but I would definitely need some help at one point, so if you don't mind I would like to touch base...

How to make 4:1 Trim System on 2020 North Navigator Bar

Hello guys, I've been riding different bars throughout the years from Ozone to Sling, Cab, Airush, etc. The easiest to trim were the Core (has a 4:1 ratio) and some other custom race-bars (also 4:1 ratio). So on my new 2020 NORTH gear I would like to turn the Trimming System into a 4:1 (or a 3:1 wh...
