@elguapo We are sorry to hear that you had an issue with our quick release system. We are keen to find out more information from you so that we can look into this further. Please check your private messages to talk about this further.
appreciate the email.
i believe we have 2-3 of your bars now on different kites.
and to answer your question...it was nothing out of the ordinary.
i simply activated the QR under a rather loaded situation.
i believe the seaweed got washed onto my lines/brindles....and then dried while i had my kite on the beach (i took a break)
long story short.. my kite started rotating from my slow cobra launch into a very overpowered hotlaunch
it was a tight launch to begin with...in less than a sec i went from in waist deep water to being a few meters the air.
i wasnt going to wait any longer for a deathloop.
i pushed away the QR..and it released as designed..except for my finger taking a nice wack.
my soul kite and the lines lines were somehow ok(i was impressed)... despite ending up in wrapped around a thorny beach tree
my fault for not checking the lines again before re-launching.
i love the minimalist design...and the weight.
but the QR may be too minimal..and not-idiot proof enough for non-professional idiots like me.
when it opens under a load...that force is going to go somewhere.
