Bar availability?

Looks like bars are all out of stock in all sizes for US. Any guess to when they will be available again?? I'm looking for 55cm version.

Re: Is controller 4 in development?

Re: Is controller 4 in development?

I wonder if Switch can keep the bar at around $300, considering the leased patent for QR. All the similar bars on market with same QR cost around $500.

Re: Is controller 4 in development?

Simple? When you pull the release, the lever will flip inwards a lot of times (or when you pull the cap up to reset) so you can peel it out first before you can push in the CL.... Can you imaging doing that underwater, or with gloves on? I think it's one of the worst on the market right now... :oop...

Re: Is controller 4 in development?

Nice hybrid of the North and Ben Wilson bar. Ben Wilson and ocean rodeo have used that QR for a couple of seasons now and it's great super simple and clean. The only ask is to replace the holding push pins with screws. I find it easy to loose the pins if trouble shooting on beach. Otherwise super ex...

Re: Any word on Mono strut and v4 bar??

Prob a lighter version of the legacy. They fly well for wakestyle but dang if it doesn't weigh a ton. If switch cut all that weight from the nitro the only logical step is to do the same with the next heaviest kite, the Legacy.

Re: Lightwind Kite for Florida

Agree with above. I'm 150lb ride a tt and helium 15.5m. I can ride and have fun in 10kts if there is non tidal flows. I love the fact I can loop it and not get over powered. If they make a full range of sizes for this kite I would give up my nitros. It like the heliums that much.

Re: Hot Kite Temperature

It really depends on the batch. I've had an element v1 and nitro v4 in great condition and it's been stored for years on my roof rack in the summer it can reach 90f. While I have a nitro v2 that had to have all its values replaced. All were stored the same way. And once a replacement bladder came wi...
