Just curious why you recommend these only for singleskin kites ?
I've been using singleskins since Peak3. I started with the original FS bar. Since I also competed a lot with a hydrofoil, I gradually switched to carbon bars, which I first bought, then started to make myself. In the hydrofoil the safety line was used extremely rarely.
I gradually threw the trimmer out of use as well. I also started experimenting with landing singleskins in all winds on a snow kite.
I've tested practically every situation from the start, through riding in big waves and snow obstacles.
All this gives me the confidence to recommend this bar for singleskin kites.
Nothing prevents the bar from being used with other types of kites, where I also have a lot of experience, but in recent years I have focused only on singleskins.
In the video you can see the size and look of the quick release and the previous version of the carbon bar.
There have been many more improvements since then, but I haven't made a dedicated video for the quick release and the bar.
