There is no replacement for sliding setup - I rode back to back - hookless direct to spreader bar vs slider rope and slider rope toeside is much nicer. When you rode toeside you twist your hip when you want to go upwind and every other setup but slider want twist your hips in other direction so you must twist harder to counter. After slider it is no go for me.

Guys, Enata has basically figured this out perfectly:

I'm not big on ordering stuff from the other side of the planet, but damn if that doesn't look like a workable solution for hooked-in riding sans chicken!
I did not see pictures, do you have a link

thanks!

I think I came up with a solution:
- a ring welded in the middle of spreader bar, and
- a rope from center to the side (on the right for my goofy stance)

I’d be able to ride the TT, boost (attached to the ring) and my toeside foiling would not suffer (attached to the rope)

Looks nice but would be nicer with a swivel.

I absolutely cannot understand need for swivel. The manual ones needs to be untwist manually and the automatic ones are are jokes. Just loop kite.
BTW a use accidentally almost same system than enata - just different execution from off shelf parts. And ring is on rope not fixed.

And yes i like this ist nice system! I would like to know lever speed by releasing - but i suspect they have it under control by have lever not loaded too much in direction perperdicular to kite pull.
/sorry for description but i cannot describe it better - im not english native/

Now i see the other pictures - It looks perfect! The lever shape is very well thought to unload lateral forces. Price avaliabilty ??? :)

Enata doesn't seem to sell the centerline part separately, only as part of complete bar setup.

Anyone seen one of these in the flesh?
The release pin looks quite long, could it foul against the rider/ spreader bar if it was loaded to face that way, or twisted round, with that size ring? Imagine being lofted and kite pulling vertical.
Also attaching a leash is going to may it more congested?
Without seeing it it's hard to gauge.

Hard to image that they did not test such a trivial thing. Also if they sell it only complete they has no worry about compatibility issues.
