north 2013 bar solves this issue. And has some amazing new features and a sweet streamlined clamp!

Sooooo good wait n see.

I have fixed that pesky annoyance (miniature velcro) since "2010"

I put on each side of the metal cleat... at full size of the cleat..(use cleat as template to trim pieces)

"2 Supa large luxurious velcro areas"...to easily reach & put on securely the depower line end

Away with you..... "mini useless square of velcro"... :bye: (located above slider stopper)

On an other note the Sensor bar 2012 on my XR2LW 19 has a very clean depower system

It has similar to North cleat but on theirs they may have seen my idea :idea: :lol: ...

The generous size velcros are on "each side of the cleat"

Ozone, is great, simple, effective, no strap, just a cleat with a magnet to hold the end of the trim line. Cabrinha 2013 is the best setup bar I've seen so far. I've seen North 2013 product catalogue, not the bar in real life. Will be interesting to see how the changes are accepted, can't remember if the dangly trim rope has been fixed, looked like the new stuff was all about the bar, chicken loop and trim system looks the same as last year from memory.
