The only bar for your 2019 F-one BANDIT, BREEZE, FURTIVE & TRUST kites.
2019 F-One Linx Bar
The only bar for BANDIT, BREEZE, FURTIVE & TRUST
The 2019 F-One LINX bar features a smaller diameter to make it comfier in your hands and reduce fatigue and, of course, for this 2019 F-One LINX edition, some great new added features offers the best connection to your kite.
- New stiffer lines
- New Hub and ClamCleat construction for more lightness
- Harmonised colour design
- 3 leash sizes available: 40cm, 75cm, 140cm
The new lines are less elastic: they stretch 30% less than the previous ones, which makes kite steering more precise. Moreover, elongation through time is reduced which allows to ride with a kite always perfectly tuned. In addition, as the lines are stiffer it makes them easier to untangle whilst setting up the kite.
The Hub is now made of aluminium and the ClamCleat is hollowed, which allows to have lighter parts for an even more performing bar. Finally the central neoprene float colours as well as the release handle have been harmonised with the rest of the bar to create a neat Linx Bar.
The LINX bar is available in in two sizes: 52/45 and 45/38cm for the 4 lines bar. New integrated floats on the rear line not only offer a cleaner look; they also house the mechanism to adjust the size of your bar too.
One Line Flag Out safety system
The One Line Flag Out safety system features this year and is now the standard for all F-ONE kites. Theres a high-quality corrosion proof Inox steel hub on the front lines that allows one line to slide. The first 6m of the front lines are larger in diameter for durability, and there is a stopper to prevent the bar from travelling too far away from you when the safety is engaged.
Manual swivel on top of the chicken loop uses a high-quality ball bearing and is easy to rotate system even when powered. This allows you to untwist your front lines after performing rotational tricks.
The Lifeline safety connection has an added swivel, so there is no danger of twists affecting the release of the kite, and the same goes for the leash too. The safety can be set up in suicide mode for freestyle riders while still retaining full functionality when the chicken loop is released as the loop can slide through the Lifeline safety connection with ease.
Short or long V split
Theres a new Inox steel ring on the front lines; riders can choose to run the front lines through this ring to give the kite a short V on the front lines. Or you can run the lines outside of this ring to have a full front V. Kites like the Furtive perform better with the full front V, while the Bandit flies better with the short V. This feature of the bar means you only need one kite bar regardless of your quiver of kites.
This bar also comes with a wide chicken loop to make hooking in and out easy.
