Hello, i have got the exact same issue.... bought the bar in October, used 10 times and the safety line start to wears out despite being washed every single time after the session. Also the bar has the same wear as yours. What do you guys think? Not too sure when the wear of the safety line is becoming risky... when do you need to replace it?
Mine is 2021, different grip so I can’t help with that.
The safety line, keep following up, you might need to change safety line and tube as it is rubbing the line.
Mine got to this point after 2 month and changed it. I will change it again soon with a new tube.
wow, thats a lot of wear. I am very surprised, i had a crazyfly bar for 5years and didn't have these kind of issues. Read somewhere that it might be because there is too much tension on the safety line and that somehow you can adjust the length of the safety line. Something to do with some knots. I dont have access to my bar this week, but when am back will check if something can be done to so that there is less tension on it. Will keep you posted
It’s a loaded line. I don’t see how you could reduce the tension. All that would do is lengthen the line and probably make it fly to one side.
You can see the wear right after the tail of the splice which is about where it enters into the square tubing, there could be a burr on the tubing entry.
Also you have to keep the line clean, you get any sand in there and it wears really quick.
I get much longer usage if I rinse out the tubing from the top after each use.
The problem in my mind is it is rather expensive to replace the red line since duotone sells the kite with both front lines.
Infexion has a setup where you replace only the line going through the black tubing,
I’have set I am using to foil on with thin lines. So far so good. The part going through the tubing is constructed differently being doubled spectra line with a sleeve. Hopefully it will last longer.
