Hello industry people,
we have been talking allot about safety. Is common sense to have bars with different colors left and right same as the color code for the lines.
This is to help people to react faster the correct side.
It does happen that can get confuse after rotation of the bar.
From my experience in riding and many years in teaching most of the time this happen when you are in the water and the bar is submerged.
I would recommend to make also the floater (usually black sausage) in the same color of the bar. This part is usually outside the water or on the surface. Even if you loose the bar or let it go, the bar is submerge but the floater are floating....
I had a student getting drag from a kite and I could not understand just being next to him if he was holding the bar on the right side.
Two thumbs down to the new Airush bar that is all of the same color with the only way to recognize the left to the right is a Red "A" on the left and a small writing (5 cm) "wrong side" on the back.
No way you can see that while in the water.
