Highlights of the new X-BAR
Click-in quick release
The modern quick release guarantees the easiest release in any situation. The handling works simply by pushing up the red cap. The chicken loop opens and the kite falls into the safety. Re-assembly is done by simply click in of the chicken loop into the quick release. So even after release in the water, you can easily make the bar ready to ride again and continue kiting.
The untwisting function of the X-BAR takes place via a stainless steel bearing in the Quick Release. This guarantees best function even after many uses.
The safety leash has a twist-out function. Twisted safety lines are a thing of the past and the release function is not affected at any time.
The safety line is integrated in the PU Tube. It runs in a separate tube channel for optimum smoothness and maximum safety. The sophisticated guide also prevents the safety from blocking after several loops – an essential safety feature.
The PU tube is flexible and glides perfectly through the bar eye. It allows easy depowering even with hard steering. In combination with the integrated Safety an indispensable setup with extremely long durability.
Due to its EVA grip, the Bar lies comfortably in the hand. Even with gloves or wet hands you always have a perfect grip. The bar ends are also coated with soft EVA. Thanks to the recess at the ends, you can quickly wind up your lines after the session and secure them with the integrated rubbers.
The discreet floaters save weight and are also nice to grap for water relaunch.
Liros DC Pro lines
When it comes to kite lines, we rely on high-end made in Germany – with the SK 99 lines DC Pro 401 from the German quality manufacturer Liros. The 1.55mm-strong steering and holding lines offer minimal drag with very low stretch. The load capacity of the DC-Pro in 1.55mm is 400 daN, far above the 300 daN used in most bars.
The connections to pigtails and extensions are spliced loops – for best durability and breaking load. This also allows easy assembly and disassembly of the extensions.
The pigtails on the line ends are color sorted and the knot – loop setup means you can’t accidentally connect our kites wrong.
The Depower adjuster uses a reliable rope clamp. Even with a lot of pressure in the kite, you can adjust the power precisely and don’t have to worry about the depower slipping.
After release, the kite is still connected to the kiter via a holding line (single frontline safety). A potentially dangerous situation can be resolved calmly. With this safety system you bring the kite to the ground without pressure.
The X-BAR has a 4-line setup with holding and steering lines of equal length. With the V-split over the adjuster, the bar is perfectly matched to all SPLEENE kites. In addition, the X-BAR is compatible with many other kites on the market.
Accessories of the new X-BAR
The X-BAR has a line length of 21.5m + additional 3m extensions. The extensions are mounted directly and offer you a line length of 24.5m. Depending on your preference, style and kite you can always ride the optimal setup. Thanks to the simple loop/loop connection, you can also install additional extensions.
The X-BAR Short-Leash – perfect for all freeriders and airstylers. The short leash does not interfere while riding and is connected directly to your harness in a short way. In case of emergency, you can easily reach the release and – if necessary – very quickly and intuitively separate completely from your kite.
The SPLEENE X-BAR Short Leash is optionally available.
You like it tidy and want to protect your new X-BAR optimally? The SPLEENE X-BAR Bag ensures that everything has its order and you do not get stuck with the lines anywhere.
