North Click Bar  Kites 5th Element 2013 Bar with Lines

 

Riders of all levels, from pros to newcomers, will all gain substantial advantages from the new North Click Bar.

 

Safety - perform all moves with safety leash
Water Start - without swimming
Performance - increased performance due to wider wind range

 

All kites can be flown with the same bar, just the short line attached in the middle of the leading edge has to be adjusted to the different kite sizes. Instructions will be attached to all bars or upgrades.



 

Safety: Whether you ride unhooked, spin, try a water relaunch for the first time or practice a handle pass, all manoeuvres, including the latest tricks, can now be performed with the safety leash of the 5th Element. As soon as you pull the Iron Heart or let go of the bar it slips up the safety line. The kite is then completely depowered and comes down without twisting the lines.



Waterstart:
When the kite is on the water after you crashed or let go of the bar, the 5th Element system allows you to relaunch without swimming

a) Keeping tension on the middle line, reload the chickeloop if necessary, and hook in if you want.
b) To get started again, use the middle line to pull the bar toward you.
c) If you pull the back lines simultaneously, the kite will slowly come off the water.
d) The harder you pull on the side of the bar, the faster and lower the kite will start in.
e) If you only pull gently, the kite will move as usual to the edge of the wind window for relaunch.
f) No unsafe pulls or drags. No more swimming!




Performance: The 5th Element stabilizes the kite’s arc and thus clearly increases performance. Enhanced profile stiffness brings considerable advantages in depowered situations and increases the kite’s wind range. As a result, the kite flies closer to the wind window and responds more directly to steering impulses.

While arc-shaped inflatable kites have a marvelous simplicity, they also have a tendency to change shape as the wind increases and decreases and as load goes from front lines to back lines or vice versa. While it's possible to control such unstable tendencies in conventional four-line kites, such control comes at a cost: more drag. The 5th Element line set offers a low-drag solution to maintaining kite shape stability, thereby permitting higher performance in every respect.

5th Element-equipped kites have greater high end, greater range, and quicker turning. Because of the better high end they also have better lift, which makes for higher jumps. Because low end power is in no way reduced by the 5th Element line set, such kites also have excellent hang time.

 

Line Length Advisor:
Different styles of riding, different kite models or the kite size can be influencing factors that require different line length.

 

In order to further increase this synergy effect the 19 and 22 m lines come now on a medium bar (49 / 42 cm) and the 24, 27 and 30 m lines on a large bar (53 / 46 cm).

 

The bar is the riders’ first point of contact with the kite. In order to achieve a maximum in comfort of riding it is essential to match the kite and the riders’ style of riding to the correct line length.

 

22m (60% Handling / 40% Power)
The favourite length for freestyle and waves! These 22m lines are still great for getting lots of speed from the kite, perfect for wave riding and freestyle. Not as extreme as the 19m lines, they still lose a bit of low end power.

 

  • Reactive turning
  • Fast Kite Loops
  • Great setup for freestyle riders
  • Best choice for waveriding

24m (50% Handling / 50% Power)
The best choice for an all round length, good turning speed combined with good power make 24m the perfect choice for a lot of riders. Great for freeride, waves and freestyle.

 

  • Most Versatile Length
  • Great for all-round freeriding
  • Good low end and a good turning speed
  • Most Versatile Length
  • High jumps as you can “load” the lines
  • The recommended size for a one bar quiver

The bar is your first point of contact with the kite, It is the connection between you and your kite and it is important to get it right. And it’s actually an easy formula: The shorter the lines, the more direct and faster the kite turns. The longer the lines, the more power you can generate out of them! Choose a North Trust Bar, and choose the right line set up for your style of riding.

Description

With the North Click Bar, powering and depowering your kite has never been easier. The unique Trim Unit enables you to power and depower in precise steps at the flick of a switch.

 

The New Way of Power:

To power your kite, turn the Winder of the Trim Unit clockwise – this shortens the length of your backlines with every half turn.

 

Twisting the Winder of the Trim Unit clockwise shortens the back lines, visible at the neon orange mark in the power display of the bar and the neon orange mark on the floater.

 

The power steps are divided in eight steps, half a rotation on the winder is one power step.

 

 

The New Way of Depower:

To depower, simply push the button in the middle of the Winder and your backlines will lengthen again with every click.

 

Pushing the Push Button lengthens the back lines, visible at the neon orange mark in the power display of the bar and the neon orange mark on the floater. Pushing the button once is one depower step.

 

 

 

Power Display:

At any time the level of power/depower is visible on the Power Display on the bar, as well as on a neon orange mark above the right floater. Being placed on the right side of the bar, the Trim Unit is easily accessible offering to power and depower intuitively in any situation – be it dropping into a massive wave or during an enormous mega loop.

 

Iron Heart V:

To reach optimum safety the Clickbar is equipped with the Iron Heart V, ensuring a quick and reliable safety release. Complete with a fixed suicide option for easier hooking in and an open ceramic bearing that is long lasting and easy to clean to ensure maximum safety performance

Riders of all skill levels, from newcomers to pros, will benefit from the simplicity and functionality of the new 2017 North Click Bar.

 

Safety:
Whether you ride unhooked, spin, try a water relaunch for the first time or practice a handle pass, all manoeuvres, including the latest tricks, can now be performed with the safety leash of the Clickbar Element. As soon as you pull the Iron Heart IV or let go of the bar it slides up the safety line. The kite is then completely de-powered and comes down without twisting the lines.

 

Relaunch:
The Clickbar allows you to re-launch without having to swim towards the kite. From the nose down position, simply pull the 5th line towards you to get the kite to tip onto it‘s back while simultaneously pulling one back line. The kite will make it‘s way to the edge of the window and take off.

 

Performance:
The 5th Element version of the Clickabr stabilizes the kite’s arc and thus clearly increases performance.
