Re: Custom made quick release

Yes i have on some kiteattitude bar. Thanks. It works "better" but still, the velcro sticks "every where" . When having this standard trim i prefer with velcro like you suggest. But during the ride, i prefer nothing at all on front lines :-) , so most of my custom bar have "dissymétric rear trim". I...

Re: Custom made quick release

Yes indeed, the part which is not tensioned.
I use exactly this cleat !
