The true is that 2021 clickbar is beautiful...



I had no problems with red line. I keep my o-ring (leash attachment) in suicide mode all the time helping to avoid that sand get access into PU. I mean, if you don't use suicide mode, due to the weight of o-ring and leash, when you land your kite, it pulls the red line out adding more particles of sand which go inside the PU when you roll your lines. If you always use the suicide mode, you definitely reduce the quantity of sand that gets access to inner PU.

In any case, rising the bar with fresh water and taking care rolling your lines (avoiding drag the lines with the sand while you are rolling) are always the most important tips. All my clickbars in this 4 years look almost brand new.

Any news about EVO SLS ?
I know it was about to get released in October and some shops had even had the kite on their website, but we are in December and nothing new about the release of the EVO SLS.
Is it getting postponed in spring with the Vegas ?
There are a handful of them in Europe as production was delayed because of lockdowns.

wow you really have good connections at the old bearded guy getting the Evo SLS before even getting officially released
I was meaning to order one since November when my local distributor said that they were going to release it, but since then it keeps getting delayed
I'm planning to go kiting at end of January, so i'll try to see if they have Dice available instead, but the stocks are very low everywhere as far as i recall. I have waited for almost 2 months for my clickbar '21

More luck than judgement. They are released but very few around and even then mostly stuck in couriers. More week 2 Jan allegedly . These were ordered a few months ago and had delay after delay.

Maybe its fate as I was on a beach in Portugal and saw the first production Neo SLS's being tested.

Or more likely its just Santa!!

I was meaning to order one since November and spoke with my local distributor and he said that he ordered me one, but then with every two weeks new delays were put in place and my kite is not even ordered anymore and nothing in sight

Are you sure that your Evo SLS 8m weighs 2.4kg? :?:

I'm surprised because my Ozone Enduro V2 8m weighed 2.51kg.
