Pilot Bar 2.0
Totally redesigned, with top-of-class functionality...
The new Ocean Rodeo Pilot Bar is the culmination of 20 years of frontline trim design experience. We went all out and had our design team refine every single component, to deliver the cleanest and easiest to use frontline trim bar to date.
• The redesigned control stick features a smaller 23mm diameter grip, turning the Pilot into a finely tuned precision instrument.
• Featuring a generous 60cm of sheeting range, the newly designed cleat and trim line handle remain within easy reach.
• The refined bar floats feature a streamline shape that incorporates fully retractable bar-end bungees for easy line storage.
• The new Pilot has been upgraded with German-made Liros DC 401 Ultra HD flying lines.
ISO certified, the Pilot 2.0 is outfitted with the all-new Gen 9 Punch Out Trim Loop, which sets a new standard in ease of use, security, and is loaded with exciting new features to enhance your ride, and our Gen 9 Freeride Leash System that is lighter, smaller and stronger than ever.

The new Pilot bar is everything I look for in a kite bar: Simple, easy, durable, and customizable. Simple: front trim bar, super clean and without any complications. Easy: thanks to its pigtails, it works with any kite. Durable: it is made to last, so you can forget about stretched lines or broken grips… Customizable: with just one screw you can change the size of your chicken loop! This bar is my go-to, even in the heaviest conditions.”

PUNCH OUT TRIM LOOP
The second generation Pilot bar outfits with the new Gen 9 Punch Out Trim Loop. ISO certified, the new trim loop is loaded with exciting new features to enhance your ride while delivering reliable release and depower flag out.
The new trim loop has been made significantly smaller allowing the trim to be comfortably within reach, without sacrificing the throw length.
QUICK CHANGE TRIM LOOPS
Swapping trim loops has never been quicker. A standard fin hex key is all that’s required. Pick your riding style. Rope slider, Freestyle or Freeride.
We completely redesigned the cleat for 2021, making it lighter and with enhanced line holding. The cleat will bite into the trim line and secure it in place with the lightest rider input.
The cleat is fitted with an injection molded cover to secure the velcro used to secure the trim line handle while not in use.
GEN 9 FREERIDE LEASH
ISO certified, this new leash is composed of a HD Spectra line sheathed inside a rugged 8mm urethane tube and features a refined stainless steel carabiner that is lighter, smaller and stronger than previous designs.
The carabiner is housed inside the EVA float and pre-tensioned carabiner garage, reducing the chance of line snagging.
