Maximilian Kühnhauser, FLYSURFER R&D
Quick Release 3.0
The Quick Release 3.0 (QR 3.0) is the core of the bar. It not only meets the French standard (AFNOR) in terms of safety and trigger forces, it is also extremely robust, compact, lightweight and of course reliable. A flexible, unbreakable Chicken Dick and a ergonomic handle allow a quick and easy release of the kite in an emergency situation.
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.
