Flysurfer Race Control Bar
The choice of materials for the RACE Control Bar creates the perfect harmony of performance and reliability. Each component must withstand the stresses of countless training sessions and keep reliable to perform in competition. The RACE bar diameter and comfortable grip are designed to prevent rider fatigue, while the carbon-reinforcement of the barstick provides precise performance over many long sessions. Safety is a top priority, especially in racing which is why the RACE Control Bar has the trustworthy ISO 21853 compliant Quick Release 4.0.
Technical highlights include the low friction RACE adjuster which is controlled by a 3:1 redirected trim system and the Dyneema reinforced depower rope, which is adjustable in length to ensure each rider can optimize their bar throw for their personal requirements. FLYSURFER is proud to offer such a reliable training device with excellent ergonomics, the highest quality materials and the best functionality. The RACE Control Bar is built for hydrofoilers and kite-buggyers who travel long distances and for ambitious competitors looking for the win.
Carbon Infused Bar Stick
The carbon reinforced bar stick is particularly stiff. It is protected by a color coded, abrasion resistant EVA grip and is available in size [M]. The complete RACE Control Bar weighs in at …kg. The grip is excellent in cold or wet conditions and is very comfortable. The bar features integrated winders with no width adjustment option.
Quick Release 4.0
The push-away quick release, which has been tested for years and is absolutely reliable, is ISO 21853 compliant. The ergonomic handle enables the kite to be released quickly and easily in case of an emergency. The RACE Control Bar comes standard with the Small Chicken Loop made for use on water, land and snow.
A 3:1 redirected RACE adjuster allows for fine adjustment of the line ratio (length of front lines to steering lines). The Race adjuster is gradual, and the operation is smooth, requiring minimal effort.
Dyneema Covered Depower Rope
The Dyneema covered depower rope has excellent load bearing capacity. It is protected by a plastic weave mesh which allows the RACE Control Bar to run smoothly and cleanly through the optimized single-hole eyelet. Another highlight is the ability to adjust the total depower throw length to suit the individual.
Low Drag Configuration
The particularly slim design of the RACE Control Bar is further enhanced by the aerodynamically designed floaters and flying lines. The low stretch “Deep Black” DC300 front lines are attached to the Ronstan pulley in the center and are built to withstand the enormous amount of force created by hydrofoil racing. The thin DC161 back lines are designed for absolute performance and can be shortened using a knot adjuster underneath the floater. The RACE Control Bar is configured with 12m flying lines and 3m extensions.
Single Frontline Safety
The RACE Control Bar supports all single front-line safety systems. After activating the QR 4.0 the bar slides up to the kite on a single front line, the kite flags out completely.
