Check this out.

This is the new One bar, shipping this next few weeks with the new kites.

Changes:

- No more connector cable between the stopper balls. No one was using them, no point!
- New stopper ball in a shapely Bullet design, all black with a red thumb screw for adjusting the release tension.
- Leash off the Chicken Loop or Trim line for a spinning bar set-up, no goofy inside lines, no hassle. The front line leash is still an option for schools.
- No more outside line stopper balls, plastic leaders, knots, BS. This baby is CLEAN! The outside lines can be adjusted in length through knots under the bar floats, outside they go straight up to the rear lines, no knots, no rings, no stopper balls.
- Lines pre-wound - ease of use, out of the bag!
- New Carbon bar with metal insert for durability and strength
- Elastic bungees to wrap your lines. Wrap up, pack up, ship out. No more line tangles, or frustration!

This bar looks great, I like all the extras, the lines already on the bar, the line bungees, tying off the trim strap, may I say ...fan-freakin’-tastic.

Goodtimes a comin’

Hey John, the ONE bar looks super-smooth, nice work.

How do you reset the punch up mech if the cable is no longer there?

Regarding the stopper re-set for the One bar, you can insert the cable if you like to make this easier but we have found no one is really using it for this purpose. Further, if you need to punch that stopper out you are likely to also be dumping your kite for safety reasons.

The stopper is easily re-set with one hand on the trim line and the other pulling the stopper into place.

To keep the lines sorted and to allow the option of attaching the two should you wish.

Brian,

The upgrades to the bar are better defined as refinements. We have cleaned the bar up to make it less confusing and more applicable to flat kites. Further, we have refined the parts to make them a bit more sleek and sexy looking but for the most part the bar’s functionality is unchanged.

If you would like you can get in touch with us through your school account and we can send you some replacement parts to swap over for a small cost.

We have full stock of spare parts for 06 gear and, for the most part, 07 gear too. Leashes are not a problem. Please contact your local dealer and have them order one in for you with their next shipment. I am doing a shipment to the UK this week and next week too!

Thanks I will follow up on that ...
On another note one of the skypilot staff has a 12m and his leash has come apart after he had to punch all 3 times now - I wonder if something is wrong with the velcro release. ? Luckely the kite was saved by a windsurfer.

Cheers

Hey Peoples!
Ive got meself a 2006 10m diablo demo kite(the only diablo in my country) and got a few complaints about bar and was wondering if they will be changed with the new 2007 bars.
-Firstly the punch out bar thing is annoying as it makes depower strap too far away, and on proformance kite like diablo why do you need it?

-Next the chicken loop is about 8cm! how are you surposed to hook back in?

-lastly bar is to long and makes kite turn faster and its already a fast kite so really dosent need it.

Ive ordered a 8m 2007 diablo and was hoping it will be mint

Thanks
Martin

Martin,

The bar that will ship with your 07 8m Diablo will be compatible with your 2006 so no worries there. The 07 bar is much different from the 06, see the image above.  rolleyes

There is basically nothing the same between the 2.
