Hi all,

any idea if the RRD global bar is compatible with Naish Triad kite?

Thanks!

Looks like the newer (2019/2020) RRD bars are now single front line flag out, so yes no issues at all. The older RRD global bars (2014 to 2017) used a double front line flag out and were verging on dangerous when flagged in high winds, I would not use the older bar.

Thanks for that, I have the newer bar, so then I should be good!

Cheers!

I have the rrd global 8.2 bar. The rigid thread lines are amazing, I really noticed a difference in kite responsiveness. Uses a patented technology to reduce line stretch to almost zero. Note that rrd bars have knots on the steering lines and loops on the centre so you may need pigtails

In general for naish kites, look for all lines equal length when powered up...ie. no depower, and bar pretty much fully sheeted in.

Thanks,
So apart adapting the edge of the linea with pigtails converter, there is nothing else to do with the global bar v8.2? Of course I must be sure that bar is correctly trim ed.
