can someone confirm that this click bar won't work with North Fuse with dual front line flagging? how come I ended up kites with single 5th, 1 front , 2 front flagging ....high Y low V ....actually once you get rid of the bar kitesurfing is great

I looks like the single-line flagging bars are not compatible with the Fuse...

Evos and Neos from 2012 on should work on the newer bar. All Dice should work on the newer bar. I have not heard that Fuses and older Evos will work on the new bar.

I believe that most 2015 Evos and Dice and Neos should work on the older bar, but I can't guarantee that. My feeling is that they should lay over as in the past, but my guess is that the worst that happens is that the kite will depower and sit straight downwind and sit nose-down in the relaunch position., but I'd recommend testing and always being prepared to pull the secondary if the primary doesn't work as expected.

Hope this helps.

You can make it release to 5th line by swapping the flag line and the 5th line on your Click Bar.
It is just not advertised by North because it is not dummy-proof.

I have a new evo and a new click bar but this is the first I have heard of a low V. Where have you seen this?

Just remove the V-distributor completely and you'll have a bar with low V. Kite behavior will change though.
My question: has somebody tried the NKB ACE on an low V setting or any other traditional 4liner bar?

Yeah a legit question. Interested as well if I get a '18 Evo 14m (says it needs the high Y) and I still want to use my Click bar with some other brand kites that use the low V.
