Re: PU covered depower line check?

There are two methods to cover a line with pu: - tight fit, sand can't get inside the tube and the line inside will last longer than the outer tube. - loose fit, sand gets into the tube and wears down the line. These will fail with no visible clue on the outside. Sadly the majority of the industry c...

Re: Clickbar red safety line end cap removal

Haters gonna hate. The Click bar itself is great, only downside are the lines (even in the 2021 model in my view) and the wear on the red front line! Foil just fixed this! I think it's awesome and Duotone should adapt this or Evan from Infexion should take it up in the assortment! Finally got time ...

Re: What determines a bar's "feel"?

Keeping all parameters like line length, bar width, split height and depower cord length the same these impact the performance and feel the most: - Line thickness /drag - line Stiffness / elasticity - size and shape of the bar hole - material of the bar hole and depower cord - weight of the bar stic...

Re: North click bar 2017 floater fix

I tried and failed to come up with a good lasting repair. Just too small to get anything to stick on that location and keep it flexible. If you really stand on the color scheme you can try to paint the duotone floater, you need to order a pair anyway so you have a second one to try your painting ski...

Re: The 2021 Duotone Neo SLS

Can then Neo SLS be flown with a low Y line setup? How would this effect the performance? Try it! The 6m split has more to do with their chickenloop than kite design. Know several riders who ride duotone kites on low split bars without issues. Without redesigning their chickenloop they are stuck wi...

Re: making a safety line with a bungee inside - ideas

7m is good enough for almost all modern (foil) kites as that is more than the distance between both powerline pigtails (towpoints) on even the biggest bridled kites. You can go much shorter on small kites.

Note that the towpoint separation on bridled kites is much less than the (projected) wingspan.

Re: making a safety line with a bungee inside - ideas

Thanks, it's indeed to keep the flagout interfering with the trim and cleat. Interesting to hear if the flagout works without a bungee, can't imagine that it would work as nice as a tight flagout line. You can make it without stitching if there is enough room through the chickenloop for the knot in ...

Re: Naish Torque Bar - flag line knot slipped through stopper

Since replacement ball is impossible to find in a short time here in Italy (the original ball was lost in the sea), I used an Ozone stopper ball, but same thing happened again. Then I tried a double knot like shown in the post above in order to have a bigger knot: it slipped again during a jump. Se...

Re: Naish 2020 ATB 55 control bar stopper ball issue

It's just a design flaw of the chickenloop that doesn't allow for a thicker flagout line that doesn't slip through the small hole in the stopper. Ozone did it right more than 10 years ago with a nice big 8mm hole through the chickenloop, allowing for a 3mm thick flagout line. Never heard of problems...
