2018 North Click Control Bar
The best kite control system in the industry just got better! Last year the Click Bar revolutionised how we control our kites, this year it’s on a whole other level! There are now three different chicken loop options available offering maximum performance and customisation. The floaters have been upgraded with integrated rubber patches, and improved visibility plus there is a new V distributor, which is even easier to use.
The incredible Trim Unit makes a return, allowing you to depower your kite at the flick of a switch. It is this impressive piece of technology that allows you to trim your kite as you ride. No longer will you lose an edge, you won't need to change your body position; you can even tune the power while you perform a bottom turn! The new Iron Heart V, unique to the Click Bar, offers unrivalled security with a front line safety system, providing total depower. Lastly, your front lines will never get tangled again. The Click Bar is the ultimate tool to fly your kite; once you've tried it, you won’t want to use anything else!

Clickbar: Best bar on the market!
Best bar on the market!
I have used this bar for 3 years now, its system is simple and precise. It allows you to adjust your kite with the precision and speed that you require to make your maneuvers.
At first I had doubts about the durability of the system but the truth that never brought me problems. I recommend cleaning it every 2 months. I only had problems with a line that stretched but can be easily adjusted with the pigtails system.
The best thing about this bar is that it can be used with any kite on the market.
This bar deserves an award!
The ingenious trim system is a huge leap forward in bar design. Powering and depowering the kite can be done without any awkward movement to reach the old-school systems. Depowering with the press of a button is a welcome relief in gusty conditions when you are already getting yanked around. Like indexed, rapid-fire shifters on a mountain bike, this is clearly the future of control bars.
The entire design is incredibly clean with everything integrated into the bar itself. No depower mechanism flapping around above the bar is almost surreal, and with long arms I enjoy the extended throw I now have.
The versatility of the design is also impressive, with 4 different chicken loops for different riding styles. I’m looking forward to being able to swap in the rope harness kit and removing the included 2m pigtails for wave riding. Plus, the adjustable V of the center lines also makes the bar compatible with most kites, and I’m sure I will now use it with all my kites. In fact I will probably have to buy a second one just for that reason; I just can’t imagine using my old bars again, and I like having redundant/backup equipment.
Don’t be debating whether you need this bar; it is a complete game changer.
Finally had a chance to use this bar after it was sitting around for months, and I'm asking myself why did I wait so long. So clean and no depower line flying around getting tangled all the time. Best is no twisting of the center lines. Just untwist the bar/backlines and that's it. Back line adjustment is much more intuitive . Great for foiling where I don't make many trim adjustment and am constantly looping the kite. The stopper ball thing is a little weird, but you can get used to it.
I have the 2017 click bar and I love it! Very easy to use and no problems with the mechanism. I have kited over 50 times with it to date. Very easy to use. On the go sheeting is so easy.
5 stars to that bar
I tested this at the kite fest gathering and it is a super clean awesome bar definitely a must to any quiver as it’s universal.
