North/Duotone click bar with Core kites

Postby k2thiago » Thu Aug 09, 2018 1:22 am

I am thinking in try this combination, as I’m starting to see some discounts in the 2018 clickbar. Would the V adjuster make it possible to adjust perfectly for the Core kites? Both brands have a high v but I wonder if the mix would work fine. Have anyone tried? I do need another bar, and I am not really impressed by the Core bar as I am by the kites itself.

2018 Click bar will work very well on a Core kite. Leave the V distributor on the red position, which is the stock standard it comes on.
Compared to the Core bar, other than the benefit of the click system itself, you will have more throw, a stopper, and more trimming range (17cm against 10cm on Core bar)
And of course you get to pick the chicken loop that fits your riding style ;)
Don't hesitate to contact me through private message if you have a question about your Click bar.
Remember to give it a little rince through the rubber plugs, every now and then, to flush the little sand that can find its way in the mechanism.
I'm sure you will love the Click bar!

They'll make the kite feel like a slug, whatever you think about the bar, the Core lines tend to be more responsive (less give) hence there's more feedback, particularly on the Pro bar.

I don't think Core kite pigtails match the standard North setup. I believe you can flip the pick tails on the line ends to match..., but never tried it myself.

Can't believe the Core kite didn't just up and disintegrated at the very thought of being flown by a knaff North bar.

General rule of thumb, use the same brand bar to fly that brands kite.

Core kites work best with Core bars.

I have both Clicker bar and also Core Sensor Pro2 bar, and both have pros/cons. and I have used them criss cross with both Neo and Sections without any problems. I have also used the North bar with low V (meaning not the low Y) by removing the line attachment point from the mid front lines and both 6, 8 and 10 neos fly well just as the 4 and 6 Sections (well only with 22m meter so taken off the 2m lines from the top).
Core has better quality lines no doubt and much lighter bar, and smoother bar throw especially when steering at the same time, but shorter throw and you are not able to do V from the current Y-split, which is a downside.
I have used the North bar with 12m Bozer 2019 without any disadvantage, so just pay attention to the over/undersheeting due to different line lengths (front versus back lines) and you should be sorted.

EDIT: and please note that I won't guarantee the bars work but for me in these sizes they do work well together.
