Re: RideEngine new Unity Spreader bar

I got to use the new harness briefly today. Super gusty and stormy with lots of rain. Not my kind of kiting so did not ride long. Gusts into the 40s on a 7m XR6. Impressed with how well the harness stayed down. No matter how much it tried to climb up it just could not. It is nice not having a harnes...

Re: Torn biceps tendon, perhaps holding bar incorrectly

Lots of things could have caused it. It is more likely a great number of things over the course of a long time unless you have had some traumatic injury that tore it once. I have had a few surgeries to fix tears and the arthritis in both shoulders from years of heavy lifting. I had a bicep tendon ru...

Re: RideEngine new Unity Spreader bar

I got my hands on one today. I am pretty picky about my harnesses. 1st off I'm not the normal build just for an idea of how I'm built think Joe Rogen just a little shorter but stockier. So my waist size is a 32 but I need the large harness with the 10" spreader bar. The harness is stiff even the sof...

Re: How to dislocate and bruise ribs with a harness?

Man I have had 4 rib injuries but all were from impacting the water. The worst was on a bad S-Bend at the cable park. The Ride Engine spreader bar sucks! I took it off not long after buying it and put an old spreader bar on from another harness. The spreader bar would turn up and with it being so wi...

Re: RideEngine new Unity Spreader bar

Thanks @ThJoe ! I have missed that one :) It is a good addition, but works only to fit a RE Unity bar to standard harness. It don't see a way to use 2021 RE harness with e.g. Mystic's Stealth bar. Or any other 2x1 inch webbing bar on market. BTW - the pull-to-open strap on Unity bar is spot on addi...

Re: RideEngine new Unity Spreader bar

Actually it has an adaptor to use with other harnesses just like the Mystic bar. I do have a stealth in rope slider version. The thing about the new RE harness that I am interested in is the non-webbing attachment. I do have concerns about it not being strong as straps or slipping. I'm going to wait...

Re: Kitemare warning about crossed lines!

Was the line crossing before going to the water or after good yard sale crash?

I all ways double check my lines when rigging and all my knots before launching the kite.

Re: Looking for boots 10-12 us

Take a look at the online wake shops. Buywake and EVO will have what you are looking for. Just buy last years model for decent savings.

Re: Height or weight more important for board size

Weight is what is important. 138 would be a little bit big for your weight. I'm thinking of getting an Atmos carbon for really powered up riding and boosting when I'm lit. I am 190 right now but normally in the 180 range (stupid covid pounds). I might drop to a 136 but probably just get a 138. I rid...

Re: Slingshot 2021 Sentry V1 Bar (any beta?)

I'm going to hold my full judgment till I get a chance to try them out. I however think I'll be stocking up on comp sticks as they go on sale.
