Hi Youtch,

Thanks for your message and comments. On some products we have a yearly millesime, on some others we don't. Bar is tipically a product that is not easy to change completely from one year to another, but we always work on improving our products. Yes, we were planning a release of an updated version by July this year, but our friend COVID19 caused a lot of delays in the production of the new parts... As you said, next bar will improve with a new depower line made out of spectra covered by TPU, and most important, we will release soon the new Quick matic V2. We can already say that it will be the most innovative and easy click in function on the market, we still don't have an exact date for it, but it will be somewhere in the autumn. Bar stick, lines and bar foams will be the same anyway, so we will propose for next year a Quick matic V2 "kit", that our customers will be able to adapt on the current bar. Any question is welcome. Thank you guys for riding Eleveight.

Many thanks for your answer, this sounds definitly like taking a good bar and making an even better bar, i was for sure missing the TPU covered.

My current bar is with TPU and it outlasts all non-TPU bar at my spot.

I am definitly in for the next version. Keep us posted.

Hello Guys. I have already raised this point with my dealer who said he would pass on the info to you but I haven't heard anything back as yet. I thought I'd ask you directly after seeing this thread. I have just bought a 2020 Cs vary bar following watching an Eleveight product video on YouTube showing the chicken loop re set as being an easy click in system without having to pull back the red collar. I was attracted to this as I am using a rope slider on my spreader bar . However I cannot get the loop to click back in at any time like shown in the video. In fact it is very awkward to re set on a slider rope as the collar has to be fully pulled back to allow the holding pin to re set and some times if I don't get it 100 percent correct the red plastic collar will not seat correctly giving a slack bungie on the collar and an insecure chicken loop. I've had the loop pop off a couple of times when launching. My old bar was a 2015 best bar and I found this to be a much sturdier set up. I'm wondering if this is a common issue and if you could offer me a solution please?

I was just sold a 2021 kite and 2021 bar - have to say the bar looks exactly the same as the 2020 bar, so seems the changes haven't been made (yet). The kite looks different though - however, it's a 7m and I haven't yet had the winds to test any differences from the 2020 Eleveight kites I have - in the meantime my teenage daughter is learning on it!
