NKB Trust bar 2012 compatible with the North Vegas 2015?

Postby victorbru » Mon May 11, 2020 8:14 pm

Hello everyone!

I am struggling finding an answer on the web so gonna give it a try here :)

Does anyone know if the North NKB Trust Bar 2012 is compatible with the north Vegas 2015?

I currently use the 2012 Trust Bar for my Vegas kites 2012. As I know there were some changes on the 2015 versions, I have a doubt on the compatibility.

Many thanks in advance for the help!

Cheers

Victor

The Vegas is designed to be flown on a 5-line bar (5th Element bar) so you have a functioning "single-line" safety system. The 5th line is also "loaded" so it can transfer some of the load to the LE for added support.
Your 2012 Trust bar is specifically a 4-line bar with a "dual-line" safety system. As far as I know there was no 5-line conversion kit at that point. Trust bars from 2017-19 (and 20?) can now be converted with their kit.
You bar uses the Iron Heart design that's from 2010-12. Here's a vid about a supposed 5th Element conversion for the Trust bar, but it's not really unclear, so I can't confirm if this could work...
