it seems that in price point of thrust bar cost of additional PU cover couldn't be allocated... it a bit shame as not everyone likes complicated click bar and would like to use thrust bar with autountwist...
Complicated? The Clickbar is the clean one of the two, that's what users like about it..
Mechanism of folding lines inside bar is not simple, just because something looks less complicated on outside doesn't mean it's the same inside.
There is a spool, a spring, and a winder. Compared to something like a Cabrinha overdrive, it is relatively simple. You are forgetting about the issues of front line adjusting systems and the various complexities that are used to solve them.

Also, the rear lines do not have the same load as the front.

So in spite of the perceived complexities of the click bar it is really quite simple and the winding mechanism has proven to be very durable.

Just buy the core bar instead if you want auto untwist, oh wait but then you can also just get a clickbar :rollgrin:

I have to thank to Duotone for the price of Clickbar 2021.

I read in different place due to new lines, it could cost 100/200€ more. Finally just 20 €!! Good for Duotone.

Yes I know, Clickbar is the most expensive bar in the market, but for me, it has no competitors.
The Core Sensor bar is even more expensive! :-?

Oh and it hides all the wear too :thumb:

Compare it to the KauperXT bar, same rearline trim principle, much less complicated.

Hello, I’m looking for advice as I’m selling my 2017 switchblade10m to buy Duotone Rebel 10m 2021. Tho used 2019 Rebel will save me around 800$. I’m more convinced about 2021 as I see a lot of differences also most of ppl here have negative feedback on the old lines.

Shall I go for a kite used plenty of times and save 800$ (which is not my priority but still cool) or shall I go 2021 and enjoy the new stuff.

Thanks

Quad bar parts breakdown

The difference is that duotone lists every single piece of the winding mechanism for the click bar., sometimes twice as you can buy the whole assembly,

Thrust is also more complex than it needs to be
