re-bar ...Thanks to FS pigtail and ring system you can attach any bar ...so you can use Ozone or if just for Hydrofoil Groove bar looks good..



I'm scratching my head to understand why a company can make such an advanced kite but could not make a bar...

If you stop the video in the right moment you can see the bar on the table, looks really nice but with an old chicken loop release mechanism.
I wish they updated with the nice click in version like Ozone have.
I hope they will go with the best quality Liros SK99 lines.
Does anyone know what kind of lines Flysurfer used on the current bar?
Yeah just saw that, it looks like it has the adjustability feature of the Eleveight bar and maybe their QR too. Looks good, a +ve improvement.

New to foil kites,when you say you can use any 4 line bar. Does where the front lines split not effect the performance of the kite like some LEI's ?

Pretty sure most of not all foil kites are a low V. Lots of bar / line systems are adjustable for high / low V these days, although in reality most foil kiters prefer to have a bar and lines that remain connected to the kite, so one-for-all doesn’t apply.

Quite like to buy bar and lines designed for kite,but feedback seems to be needs improvement.
I'm guessing the Ozone set up would be best alternative?

My wish for the new bar is lighter weight and more durability. If you think it’s less minimalistic, that doesn’t sound good for me. It’s a long shot but I would hope for a clink in style chickenloop like Ozone’s as well but since the Peak 4 bar doesn’t have this, I don’t expect any different.
I never had Infinity 3.0 bar in my hands but new bar feels lighter than my cabrinha 2017 bar. The one I have seen were prototype as so weight of final product can be different

Yes in 2:50s into video there is this a new FS bar.

I think having Ozone breaking line between steering line would be useful but to be honest I didn't use my Soul yet. I'm still debating whether to buy Ozone bar for my Soul or something else?

I find the rear line strap very useful. Easier to land with, just as much control as using rear lines separately, and rightly or wrongly I like to use it with a stake for temporarily landing the kite between sessions.

It’s really easy to add one to a FS bar if you want. I added one once a long time ago when I bought a Speed4 15m thinking it would be better. It was not so it didn’t stay.
