Actually, props to Airush for maintaining compatibility within their line. This season I've replaced trimmers (along with that pu-covered main line) on my 2015 and 2017 bars with the clam cleat style ones. And - I'm fairly certain that I'll be replacing chickenloops on both bars for next season. Otherwise these were the most dependable and easy to maintain bars in my experience and to this date. Zero issues.

B.t.w. these main lines... i've never seen them break, and i've seen some really rough Airush bars - trust me. Either it's the fact that there are 2 of them, or Airush has simply nailed it in terms of materials - but they are really solid and trouble free.

No doubt they last the distance. I'm not questioning that at all, Airush is in my book one of the most trustable brands out there. My comment was from an outsider point of view, wondering if I should retrofit such a QR on my frankenbars, and the answer is no because of those 2 lines.
I had an Airush bar with depower strap, stopper over those double depower lines, etc... and I MarieKondo'ed that clutter out, and it's now happily living with a Clamcleat Aero cleat and Ozone's QRs, and a couple of meters of fat size dyneema.
