STAR kiteboarding engineered the ELITE v3 control bar to offer all kite boarders a clean, hassle-free riding experience.
EVOLUTIONS OF THE ELITE CONTROL BAR 2016:
- Depower strap replaced by a clam cleat
- New double PU protected depower line instead of simple one , allowing to add a stopper
- Red security line is now PU protected too (to avoid wear)
- New orange/white grip with softer feeling
- New stainless center piece (bar hole)
- No more red stopper ball J
- Integrated floaters with bar ends for a complete new look
By only designing what is absolutely necessary on a control bar and using the simplest safety system in the industry, our pros don’t have to modify their bars, and beginners can focus more on the ride without compromising their safety. The ELITE control bar is highly functional and suits all riding styles.
Simplicity improves performance but also durability; more parts usually means more potential failures. The ELITE bar is composed of very few simple parts made of the most durable materials in the trade to create a long lasting, heavy duty control bar. It complies with AFNOR standards, and can be used on most 4 line kites.
The 5th generation bar has everything a rider needs… nothing more.
