Yeah my dealer confirmed end of May as well. I hope they got everything right as I don't like to be guinea pig
This bar looks to be built by a different company, not home Flysurfer grown, so I expect it to be pretty good. My problem will be that I’ve heard the ironheart qr is very heavy which means the bar most likely is going to be heavier than the Infinity bar. FS use to make a really light weight bar back in the day. Guess that’s not ever coming back.

I use the ozone contact 55cm with 20m lines on my soul 12m. The ozone bars are excellent. The new click quick release is also the safest on the market currently way safer than the pin type iron heart ones. If you have ever had an accident and hurt yourself when the wind is up 9m kite levels and tried to pull in that safety line after a quick release and then tried to hold the safety while trying to reassemble a quick release with the iron heart plastic hood type release, to get the chicken loop back together you will know what I mean! It’s bloody hard work and scary when suffering with pain.
The ozone you literally just push the chicken loop back together. Best safety device out there.

Well darn. I just purchased my Ozone Foil Race bar at 2X the Contact price :(
Nice to learn from you (and watched a video) that it reassembles with a simple push. Nice

I know we all like to go on about this but has ANYONE else had any issue AT ALL with the Ozone V4 chicken loop release, other than Ruben Lenten who seems to have provided pretty good evidence that it was his mistake and not the release?
