2020 Duotone Click Bar
Duotone's recent name change from North Kiteboarding temporarily overshadowed the fact that their gear is some of the best performing gear available today--including the 2020 Duotone Click Bar. So let's turn attention back to what matters, the gear.
If you haven't tried the Duotone Click Bar, you're in for a treat! The unique Trim Unit of the Click Bar enables you to power and depower in precise steps at the flick of a switch. To power up your kite, turn the Winder clockwise – this shortens the length of your backlines with every half turn. To depower the kite, simply push the button in the middle of the Winder and your backlines will lengthen again with every click. At any time the level of power / depower is visible on the Power Display of the bar, as well as on a neon orange mark above the right floater. The Duotone Click Bar is equipped with the Iron Heart V, ensuring a quick and reliable safety release. Lines, even the guided safety line, are automatically untwisted during rotations. It’s delivered with a 4 line set up and adjustable to either 20m and 22m or to 22 m and 24 m line length.
Kiteworld Magazine described the convenience of the Click Bar this way: "For waves, freeriding, lighter or smaller riders and those who want the ultimately clean piece of kit, the Click bar is ideal, and can be adjusted to work with most kites on the market."
