easily reset ’relese’ test under load

Postby downunder » Wed Apr 10, 2019 11:52 am


I hope this short vids will help you to make an informed decision on what’s on the market.

First, a one hand Wichard quick release reset. Yes, it is TRUE one hand reset.

It is TRUE non load release.

Second, the release under 20 kg load. There would be absolutely no difference in 100kg load.

Hope this helps. Btw it is not true no one is using this. Many, many are, including some best racers on the planet.
Now, the question is, do you unhook?

I second your case. :-). Been using the same wichard for a long time. Don't unhook....strapless waveriding, harness with a slider.

To be honest....I have two bars. The other setup, I use a slider on my harness, steel ring and I hook in my CL. Works as well. Though it needs more load, for sure.
