I hope it will be adjustable... though the prototype didn't show that...

But why call it 4X and not just 4? Name is kinda similar to Cabrinha Overdrive 1X that way, and that bar sucks big time...

2 is better then just only 1. 46,53 and 55cm so probably not upgradeable from X to Pro and vica versa anymore. Hope it has nice grip on one or both, if they advertise it differently.
X is the 24th letter in the modern Latin alphabet, maybe 24 meter lines ?

I love my Nitros 6 but the bar isn't good as the kite. I'm really looking forward to seeing the new bar and buy it !

I am still riding wih an old controller 1 at the moment and it's more than time to change.
I have 3 kites 7,11, and 18, and took for granted the use of only one adjustable bar with suits my needs.
I so sorry, switch has not reproduced the concept, as having two bars will cost more and will be far less convenient.
Am I the only one to have this complain? Anyways, congrats on the look and the weight !

The Controller 4X is now in the Online Store (well for NZ it is) http://switchkites.com/controller4x.html

Introductory price is NZ$519 (about US$375) which represents a 15% discount off of the retail price listed of NZ$603 (about US$435)

So a bit of a jump up in price from the Controller 3, but I still think it I'm going to hit 'Add to Cart' and get into one.

Just remember, if you are buying a new 4X bar (or anything else), spread the love and get instant Karma by quoting my Switch Referral Code 658889 No cost to you, let me know your number and I will use it when i buy my bar!

Cheers

C2 245 Euro
C3 261 Euro
C4 315.09 Euro + Perhaps double the shipping costs of alternatives

C2 245 Euro
C3 261 Euro
Kite Attitude 279 Euro http://www.wetestkites.com/2016/06/04/a ... -euro-bar/ You can't spend any points for more discount. I see some similiraties.

Did you have an alternative, if so which was/is it ? I think it is not so good of an idea to ride switch kites with other bars, also if you want to sell the set afterwards it doesn't look that good. BTW the bar isn't actually ordeable yet,so a bit of an impulsive decision.

It happened before that the first prices were incorrect so who knows...

If it stays like this I too think its too high...

I wonder how a 7m element would handle with the 55cm bar. Maybe some experienced riders will have a idea.
