Brilliant bar with huge improvements for 2017 such as a single flag out safety line, plus the strongest and most durable lines on the market, usable on any type and size of 4 line kite.
A simple bar that works, all day, everyday.
The Global Bar V7.1 has been designed to produce safety, functionality and durability.
A great bar with a great history of performance and reliability. RRD have taken out any unnecessary items rather than adding them, to simplify the bar and make every component more functional - ”You cannot break what does not exist”.
Chicken loop safety release system with oversized handle and increased sliding potential of all components to secure an effective functionality over years of use. The simplest safety release system on the market with minimal steel components meaning longer lifetime and less maintenance.
Moulded stainless steel double ring safety system leash attachment point, angled open for easy clipping in
Chicken loop finger with multiple pre set positions
Moulded floating bar ends, injected with high memory eva foam, giving better bar grip and safety from impact
Bar diameter reduced by 1mm to increase grip
CNC milled anodised aluminium central bar section with oversized oval hole to improve depower tube sliding
Double chamber hollow tube for depower roper and safety line. Constructed using high quality polyurethane to protect both line to give better longevity and no need to replace over time.
Depower rope length increased by 10cm to give larger depower throw to be used on all different sizes and type of kite
New depower stopper/EVA float, simply push up or down the depower tube to trim the depower to your desired length or for the condition your are riding in.
Stainless steel depower trimmer cleat, designed around the double chamber tube to allow the safety line to run freely even after multiple front line twists.
RRD Rigid thread lines - the highest quality and longest lasting available:
The ‘Rigid Thread Lines’
will always be visually, technically and feeling compact and rigid throughout the course of their lives, maintaining all its physical and technical characteristics unaltered over the time.
The standard braided kite line has more stretch, which results in different line lengths, power absorption and reduction of performance, especially at the moment where you change the direction of the kite, where the load of the lines reaches its peaks.
Another weakness of the standard braided line that ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ have turned into a strength are unchanged compactness of the line.
Any new conventional line, has a rigid and compact character because of the resin (generally polyurethane-based) that encompasses it. This resin has a very short life and after only a few sessions, the touch of the product is softer.
This translates into a series of annoying consequences such as:
• The softened lines are more subject to unwanted knots.
• The protection of the line is reduced after each session.
• The braid tends to open and it becomes more fragile, allowing the entry of water which will create small salt crystals inside in case you kite in salt water, which can impair the bearing structure of the line.
WHY ARE RRD KITE LINES INNOVATIVE?
Unlike standard braided lines, the unidirectional structure of ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ provides a fiber memory that is significantly more efficient. A standard braided line under stress combines all ‘dynamic elongation’ of the fiber and flattening of the braid, whereas the core's unidirectional structure uses exclusively the elastic modules of the fibre.
