Cabrinha trimlite bar on Ozone edge V9

Postby Bennis123 » Fri Apr 02, 2021 5:35 pm

Sorry for the this boring question, but I couldn't find a recent thread about it. I hate spending insane amounts of money on a new stick with some lines on it, so I hope to use my cabrinha bar on the ozone edge.

PS: how overpriced are these bars actually? I can't imagine them being that hard to design and produce.

The only two issues are pigtail compatibility and low V vs high Y. Pigtails can be easily swapped to match but only a few bars can do both V and Y. I believe the Edge used a V as does the Cab bar though.

Almost. Also single front line safety (most these days) and
Bar throw, some kites can use a lot (others less) and some bars can be restrictive.
They’ll work safely but not necessarily the best performance. :bye:

I have used extensively Cabrinha recoil bar with Ozone Enduro V2/V3. Works perfectly. I would say on par or better than Ozone's own bars - but this mostly preference. Should be perfectly fine with Edge, as Ozone LEI kites share same bars. Of course - you have to exchange pigtails on the kite(or add opposite sex pigtails on the bar), as Cab bar will not match Ozone connection pigtails.
