After 2 seasons of riding, the ‘H’ bridle lines ( the ~ 4 mm DIA spectra )  running through the pulleys on the LE are worn and may need replacing by the end of this season.

Are replacement lines available, or for the DIY’ers, are the lengths for various kite sizes published on the OR website ?

John - I don’t think my H bridle lines need replacing right now, but maybe by the end of this season.

However, I’m posted about this now because I see an inreasing need for these lines as a standard replacement part in the OR Accessories section.

Also experience with heavier Spectra lines running over pulleys in foil kites has taught me that as a line wears, it shortens up significantly as well.  I’d like to see the factory spec’ed dimensions of the H line published on the site, to check where my worn lines are at, and possibly adjust the attachment point of the adjacent bridle line back to the factory spec.

Maybe I’m techno-geeking out on this, but if there are hundreds or thousands of these Ones out there logging flying time, then I think I’m not going to be the only one asking about replacement H lines….

Cheers, Greg.

Hey John are you guys selling the “H” line for the Ones?  My 12m One needs new lines and pullies and I would like to get new ones from OR rather than tying all those knots in some spectra.  Thanks.
