Which bars work with switch kites?

Hi Everyone, I have a quiver of Elements which I normally use with the controller4. I am awaiting some spare parts to arrive at the moment before I can use the bar again. It looks windy this weekend and was wandering if people know which other brands of bar would work with the switch kites? Just so ...

Re: Helium 3 7sqm frontstall?

Hi,

If you look at the wind range on the specs page for the 7m Helium it says the wind range is roughly 25 - 40kts. It looks like you are flying the kite in at best, very marginal wind conditions and maybe the reason the kite is not flying as it should.

Re: Wanted control bar

Are you still looking for a bar mate? I'm in the Uk and have a controller 3 I could sell.

Re: Element 6 vs Helium 3

Kite*hawk, thank you very much for your advice. I'd say about 50% of my sessions are self launch/land, and most of my local spots attracts some big swell so I think i'll go for the element. The element seems to be the all rounder that I'm looking for.

Great advice, cheers!

Element 6 vs Helium 3

I currently have the Element4 in 9m and 13m. I am looking to replace the Element4 13m and am looking at either the Element6 12m, or the Helium3 12m. This kite will be used for freeride and foiling. What are your thoughts on which one I should get? There is plenty of advice on the website, and I am l...

Re: Issue with C4X bar when quick releasing

Faxie, I think the point here is that yes, not everything is perfect with every bar, but the one thing that should be perfect and work every time is the safety system. Most people with this bar have been lucky enough to not have this problem, but for the ones that have it is very annoying and potent...

Re: Issue with C4X bar when quick releasing

Kitelooper, I had exactly the same issue with my new C4 bar. I love the bar, but the safety release simply didn't work when I tried to use it, despite puling the knot really tight by hand, and taking it out in powered conditions, that knot on the lower end of the safety line just would not pass thro...

Hydrofoil board

Does Switch have any plans to develop a hydrofoil board?

Re: Controller 4

I used my new controller 4 for the first time this week. I really like the bar, I got the longer one and use it with my 9m and 13m element and it works great. I actually really like the new soft grip and the new depower handle seems like a good idea. The new chicken loop is good and it seems like a ...
