Duotone Click bar & lines 2023
The flagship control system from Duotone gives you the ultimate way to trim your kite without moving your hand from the bar itself. Years ago, it revolutionised the kite industry, and now, it’s upgraded again to make it even better with the new Iron Heart VI Click-In Safety System and FLITE99 lines. Available as in medium with a 49cm bar and 22m lines with 2m extensions or in small with a 42cm wide bar with 20m lines and 2m extensions.
The Click Bar with its Backline Trim Unit was a game-changer when it hit the market; the design has been refined over the years, and it’s become the benchmark in kite control systems.
For 2023, there is a new Iron Heart VI which features a Click-In Safety System. This allows you to simply push the chicken loop into the Iron Heart VI for easy connection every time. Perfect for riders using a rope slider bar and a real help when you pop your chicken loop and need to reconnect, especially in the water.
The floater is also removable so that you can inspect the leader lines of the bar easily , the progressive pigtails have a reduced sleeving, only where it is needed; this reduces the weight and the drag through the air at a critical connection point to the kite. The new FLITE99 lines from Robline reduce the drag through the air and offer a more direct steering response.
The new V Distributor III can be adjusted easily, allowing you to quickly set the front line to split quickly. It can also be removed entirely, very easily, so you can have a very low V; this makes the Click Bar compatible with most kites on the market. There is a Suicide Ring leash connection system; ride it in full safety mode or easily set up suicide for unhooked riding.
There is also a Click Bar in Medium with 12m + 12m extensions; this set-up is perfect for kite schools. If you want the ultimate control system for your kites, the Click Bar is the only choice you need to make; there is nothing better! For 2023, it’s refined, tuned and ready to perform at the highest levels of the sport.
