You said: "Another possibility I think for a better control system is that Crossbow would work well on a pulley bar with a cleat sheeting system for those of us that like to ride pulleys. I think the kite will turn much faster. If anyone has a crossbow give it a try. I think this will make bow kites...

I have had a nitrous harness since Dakine came out with it. The most outstancing feature is that the pull from the hook is very low and allows you to really edge against an overpowered kite.

How does the safety system work on the Crossbow and Nova?
