Not sure where in the world you are, but I'd be curious about this great looking gear, including what looks like a well executed copy of the infexion seat-belt release: https://kitelab.pro/

(I make my own bars from carbon tubes but rather ghetto-style, and I use an infexion setbelt release since you need only one!)

I'm using a KiteAttitude freeride bar. Its a decent budget option. The new quick release looks good. I'm waiting for my upgrade to arrive (seems its stuck at in customs at the moment :angryfire: ). The new adjustable width bar looks pretty sweet. They'll do custom line lengths too so you can get short lines and then extensions to bring them up to the full length

My only slight gripe is the chicken stick is less bendy than most so its a little harder to clip in to your harness. Not a problem if you aren't unhooking but I'd make sure you go for the big loop if that was on your radar.

i've had this recently -i have brought a sonic2 11metre kite only, which i hope turns up today :D and i have brought a new set of lines off slav , and the bar i intend to use does not have enough depower throw ,so i had to change the bar lines slightly and then i set the bar up for equal lines full power
so you do need to factor this in -does the bar you intend to use have the required depower throw, if it doesnot , you will not get full depower

I owned both of them and it’s not comparable when it comes to quality and even more if it comes to innovation, sorry!

You are saying that the infexion original is much better than the kitelab copy? Can you give a bit more info on the differences?

The KiteLab bar is composed of two halves.
This means that there is no continuous fiber flow at the edge of the joint.
the Infexion Bar is made from a tube.
It feels more robust, stable and secure to me.
All individual parts can also be replaced.
The winder on stock he side allows it to be packed smaller and is no risk to get cached on them.
And custom duties makes it more expensive than expected.
