Kitesurfing control bar.
What is the control bar of a kite?
The Kite control bar is an essential piece of equipment for any Kitesurfer. The kite bar can be pushed away by sliding there kite control bar up the depower line, extending the power lines and changing the kite's angle, which quickly depowers the kite by extending the rear power lines. A kite control bar usually has all the lines the same length, or the kite lines end at the same point. Most kite control bars have a quick-release system. This is activated by pulling or pushing the quick-release system on the chicken loop. Once the kite has been safely landed using the safety line, steering lines and kite lines can be checked, and then the quick release can be secured, and the kite can be relaunched. The kite control bar should always be used with a safety leash.
Depending on ability, the bar width may vary. A small kite will use a smaller bar width. Larger kite bars will help the rider change direction quickly due to the leverage on the kite. It is essential t to use the right bar for your kite. Always check you have the correct line setup and the right line length for your kite. By using different line lengths, you can change the kite's power.
