Re: Does a 4 line kite work with any 4 line bar?

Hi, I'm about to replace my 12m kite. So far, whenever I bought a kite, I purchased 'its' bar as well. All of my kites are 4line kites. This time I would rather not buy another bar if the existing ones fit for the new kite. I wonder if the 2019 Cabrinha Switchblade will fly properly with my old Ozo...

Re: Does a 4 line kite work with any 4 line bar?

Some bars use different pigtails, but this is an easy fix. yes watch for that. check before you go to the beach so you can get some adapters. Otherwise, should be interchangeable. so the answer to your question is almost always yes. But 7 years might be pushing it for other things. Are you sure the...

Re: Does a 4 line kite work with any 4 line bar?

[/quote] Most four line bars would fit most 4 line kites, just pay attention to above/below the bar depower, high-Y vs low-V, bar size, QR/flagging design, bar throw lenght, chickenloop size. If you have specific kite:bar models in mind - folks will share their thoughts on them. [/quote] I have an F...

Re: Does a 4 line kite work with any 4 line bar?

Some older bars release to two lines instead of 1 center line. Kites that are not designed for this (most modern kites) cannot be safely released to two lines. I can't remember when F-one switched to single line release, but your 2013 bar might not have this, in which case, don't use with a modern ...

Re: Surf Expo 2015 Videos from The Kiteboarder

I'm wondering why Core does not participate on these Surf Expos? I've never read any bad opinion about the brand(except their marketing) which tells me that their products are put together pretty good. Unfortunately I've not had the chance to test neither Core kites nor the boards so far. Quite a bi...
