SIMPLE Quick Release
The compact and reliable SIMPLE Quick Release is the heart of the Control Bar. It complies with the French standard (AFNOR) in terms of safety and release forces. A molded chicken loop and chicken stick as well as the ergonomic handle enable the kite to be released quickly and easily in an emergency.
Light Bar Stick
The Light Bar Stick is available in 50cm (M) and weighs in at just 0.34kg. The ergonomic EVA grip is abrasion resistant and extremely comfortable in the hand offering a secure grip even in cold or wet conditions. The bar is also colour coded orange on the left hand side and petrol on the right.
Exchangeable One-Hole Eyelet
The One Hole eyelet offers frictionless steering whilst depowering and works perfectly for freeriders to kite schools. This is achieved using a replaceable insert in the eyelet.
The Clam-Cleat Adjuster allows for precise depower adjustment of the flying lines whilst being quick and easy to use. The Clam-Cleat adjuster can also be moved easily to modify the bar throw based on personal preference. For example it can be brought closer for someone with shorter arms.
B-Safe System ready
The CONNECT Control Bar has been specially configured for products using the B-Safe system. After activating the quick release, the bar slides up the 5th line and the kite is reefed horizontally in the middle. This removes the pressure in the kite and allows it to come down powerless through the wind window. We recommend this safety system for the PEAK4 product line.
The flying lines can be adjusted easily under the bar floaters. A series of knots allow you to counteract the shortening of the steering lines over time which can cause backstall. To shorten the flying lines of the CONNECT control bar to 14m, the 7m extension pieces can be removed by pulling them over the leader lines, the safety will still work as normal.
CONNECT Control Bar
The CONNECT Bar is specially designed with a high Y split on the front lines and a 5th line for the B-Safe system. The lightweight bar stick has a conical shape which sits comfortably in the hand. The EVA grip is colour coded, orange for left and petrol for right. The soft bar ends reduce risk of injury and allow for easy line adjustment. The clam cleat helps riders to maximize comfort and safety by adjusting the power precisely.
The CONNECT Bar is equipped with our SIMPLE Quick Release chickenloop. Maintenance is simple and easy. The One Hole eyelet in the centre of the bar features a replaceable insert.
Weighing in at just 0.84 kg complete, the CONNECT bar goes perfectly with the PEAK4 and is a must have for your next adventure.
