I have a 2011 10 m rise and a 15m flite. I have a fusion bar for both kites. I like it on the 15 as the depower increases the wind range before i’m in trouble.
The problem in the below the bar trim. Now I guess that is fixed by the Freestyle, however the throw that I like is not there by the looks of things.
Is there a “conversion” or an option to purchase just the above the bar system to convert my fusion? I’d like to leave a little more throw on it. Do you see problems with this?
Is there an option from OR?
Hi dude!These are both big to very big kite sizes so you need the length (23m lines) and the “depower throw” of the fusion! Ocean rodeo kites, especially Rise, can flight pretty good when depowered so you can use the extra throw of the cleat depower and the fusion is the perfect bar for them!
As told above, you need to go little downwind and maybe -at the same time- move your hand upper in the bar so you depower all lines and “stall” your kite for just a second! Then you pull Right and then diagonal Right-Down… if you are right-handed!! All cleats works the same ..First they un-cleat only when they have no tension!!..thenyou pull to the one side only, so the rope get loose from the cleat and then you pull down and away from the cleat so the rope moves easily to the desired position, then you bring the rope to the cleat hole and power your kite by your hand in the bar!!! As you power up, the rope that is already at the hole of the cleat it “catches an edge” and after that you continue the ride and the rope is always under tension at the cleat!!.
Thats it…just practice the timing of getting loose ropes and uncleating at the same time! Remember Out and then Down!
