At Kite-line, we offer kiteboarding bars from Cabrinha, Naish, North, Ocean Rodeo and Sling shot. In kiteboarding, the control bar is a metal or composite bar that is attached to the kite with kite line. Riders grasp the bar and pull at the ends to control the kite, making the kite to rotate in either direction. A chicken loop is typically tied to the control bar and is attached to a hook or latch on a spreader bar on the kiteboarders harness. Most kiteboarding bars are also equipped with a quick-release safety-system and a control strap to manually change the kite's attack angle. While kite control bars are designed to be lightweight, they must also be very strong. Kite line is typically made heavier than water and "bar floats" usually made of foam fixed to the kiteboard lines just above the harness. These keep the bar from sinking when dropped in the water. Control bars are typically made for particular kite types and sizes and are not recommended for use with different kite types.
The all new 2015 Cabrinha Overdrive 1X security system now has a cleaner method to manage the 1X security line. The incredibly easy reconnection of the QuickLoop™ harness loop is now the new benchmark in the industry for simplicity. We have removed the external 8meters of security line to create a simplified lower V connection. The 1X line stopper is integrated into the centerline adjustment strap. The 2015 Cabrinha Overdrive 1X QuickLoop™ control system is a fully adjustable control bar featuring our all new QuickLoop™ opening harness loop.
QuickLoop™ is an opening harness loop connection designed to work specifically with our 1X single line flagging security system. QuickLoop’s™ defining feature is its ridiculously simple operation of our 1X security system. Upon activation of 1X’s single line flagging system the power of a kite is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land.
