Hello, i have got the exact same issue.... bought the bar in October, used 10 times and the safety line start to wears out despite being washed every single time after the session. Also the bar has the same wear as yours. What do you guys think? Not too sure when the wear of the safety line is becoming risky... when do you need to replace it?
Hi there,

Mine is 2021, different grip so I can’t help with that.

The safety line, keep following up, you might need to change safety line and tube as it is rubbing the line.

Mine got to this point after 2 month and changed it. I will change it again soon with a new tube.

How you use your chicken loop? Suicide mode o normal mode?

I think using the o-ring of leash attachment in suicide mode helps to avoid this damage because you keep all your red line inside the tube all the time.

If you use in normal mode, when you land your kite and red line loose the tension, it drops to the sand due to the weight of o-ring and leash. When you put back the red line inside the tube you automatically are introducing sand in the tube and it will increase the possibility of wear.

I always use my clickbars in suicide mode and have no problem of wear in safety line...
I’m always using on suicide mode, clean the bar after launching, washing after use even inside the tube... in my case the cover is rubbing, been worst on the end edges. I know other local kiters without this issue so it doesn’t happen to all the click bars.

I doubt it has to with the suicide option.

Differences in tube manufacturing is a possibility but also consider different riding styles and cleaning/handling practices:
- some rider force the bar extremely hard against the depower cord or steering and sheeting simultaneously. Both will bend the tube and rub the red line against in internal surface.
- when launching try to keep the bar out of the loose/flying sand as much as possible. You can clean the bar after your session as much as you like, but if sand can enter the tube at the start of the session all that effort is in vain. So try to set up your kite as close to the water on wet sand and submerge it before putting on your board. Never leave the bar in a place where sand can be blown onto and into it before and in between sessions.


Trouble shooting wear issues like these can be maddening, had a prototype plastic insert for the bar hole in my bars. Some riders like myself did months with 1 insert while others went through the entire insert in only 2 sessions purely because they push the bar against the depower cord with more force. Those latter riders will always experience way more wear, no matter what bar you give them and are always complaining about breaking stuff too soon.

Hey I went through a couple of click bar safety lines. At first I thought it was the black tube edge, but I found after the second one it was actually a small sharp ridge on the metal tube the rope passes thru. It seemed like the press that turns the end of the metal tube over during manufacture may have damaged the metal, which in turn cuts the line when the bar spins under load.

See here:

I removed the edge using sandpaper on a drill piece.
