RRD Launch New Global Bar 2009

RRD Global Bar 2009 One bar for all 2009 kites...
The new GLOBAL bar is slightly wider compared to the 2008. This allows better turning speed on big size kites.
The new GLOBAL bar is composed of 3 pieces: on the sides you have a carbon prepreg tube including the roll-up line horns built in one monocoque piece. The centre piece is made with one aluminium block , polished on the inside to improve sliding ability of the de-power rope and become an ever lasting piece.

The side lines are pre-attached to the bar through short spectra ropes with 3 knots. You can trim the back line length to your desired size and the cover the knots with the new soft superlite side-floater. You can also adjust the bar width by changing the leader line attachment point.
The blue on the right and red on the left is printed onto the new 3d logo EVA grip as well as on the leader lines, covered by a plastic tube to prevent abrasions. Safety meets functionality and look.
The long tested exclusive swivel chicken loop has been slightly improved, by RRD Global bar safety 2009Connection ring to ride in total security with leash extending it 2 cms . The new stopper ball has been improved with a bigger diameter . All together a hardcore, functional, strong and reliable piece!
A new webbing puller with a big , easy to grab puller loop has been fixed onto the end of the 6 mms spectra rope, to improve easy trimming and releasing of the rope. When the trim is pulled all the way, the exceeding spectra rope can be fixed behind the cleat by a Velcro attachment, so that it stays in place without swinging around.
The new 2 mms safety line has been improved by using a bigger and stronger elastic rope that does not overextend, creating a ready-to-use, practical safety RRD Global bar 2009 power trimPower trim with clam cleat and front line tuning knots system to use in any critical condition.
Using a new colour coded 25 mts flying lines with reinforced spectra material has allowed the GLOBAL bar to have the best of all packages available!
The only system in the industry that allows to re-trim the front lines from natural stretching. You know that after a few hours of kiting the front lines start to stretch , and in exceptional cases during heavy loads, the front lines can stretch up to 20 cms! The only way to re-trim you kite to the original proper trim is to shorten the front lines. The 4 knots above the de-power cleat allow you to re-adjust the length of the front lines up to 20cms. This is the only way to have a kite always perfectly trimmed!
A Velcro pocket behind the cleat allows to hold the exceeding de-power rope and prevents it from tangling around the side line while kiting.
The spectra rope has been extended of 10 cms compared to last year, allowing complete de-power-ability in case of emergency.
