Includes: Control Bar, lines, connect quick release kit, standard freeride loop, standard leash, repair kit
Switch effortlessly between disciplines with the Toolless Interloop, our no-tools required modular harness loop replacement system. The Navigator Control System connects you intuitively to your kite, using industry-leading SK99 Dyneema lines from Liros for precise performance. The 2022 Connect Quick Release and leash now complies with ISO Standard 21853:2020. Faster, safer release and intuitive single-action reload in all conditions. Available in three sizes, the refined ergonomic design offers durability, comfort and tactile control. Knowing your kite's position just became second nature.
Simply push, twist, pull, lock and go. The Toolless InterLoops are made from optimised TPU material for flex and durability, with a more rigid freeride security finger to prevent unexpected unhooking.
Security and performance in all conditions. Our patented and ISO-approved Connect Quick Release (QR) raises the bar in kite control system safety.
Our industry-leading 100% Dyneema SK99 flying lines are strong, thinner profile and pre-stretched for less parasitic drag and uncompromised direct performance. With 88m of flying lines in the air, you can really feel the difference
The positive buoyancy bar ends with integrated line winder bungees are injection moulded in one piece with no-glue seams for long-lasting quality. The bar ends ensure nothing hard comes in touch with you or your board, float the entire bar, and also contain the concealed rear line adjustment. Even the best quality lines shrink over time, so after a month, we recommend you check your lines are all even and drop them to the bottom knot. It’s easy and takes only a minute to make the change.
To help prevent line abrasion from uncovered lines against your skin, we've used colour-coded PU tubing covers. The covers also help them remain rigid and out of the way when the flying lines aren't under tension.
Provides industry-proven line-adjustment when needed. The cleat base has been designed with circular geometry for consistent bar spin. In overpowered conditions the cleat allows you to shorten your front lines and remain in a comfortable body position.
Easy to reach moulded trim handle doesn't hurt when it hits you. Made from Nylon/EVA for strength with a textured soft-touch grip. Top-quality German-made extremely high wear Dyneema depower and trim line with a special impregnation coating for resistance to abrasion.
Symmetric multibore landing line channel allows the landing line/flying line to pass through without snagging, regardless of the orientation when deploying or reloading. Crafted from a patented material specifically formulated for high abrasion flexible applications.
22m lines have a split at 12m, which is far enough for the bar to travel to completely depower our largest kite when you flag out. Remove the standard 10m top section of flying line and 12m lines are ideal for schools to teach with and for foil racing. 8m and 6m line extensions are available as an accessory for wave riding or tighter kiteloops.
Security and performance in all conditions. Our patented and ISO-approved Connect Quick Release (QR) raises the bar in kite control system safety. The red QR handle has been ergonomically designed to fit in your hand comfortably for an industry-standard push away release. All loaded or running surfaces feature highly polished 316 stainless steel and low-friction components. The larger diameter bungee inside the QR helps reduce accidental release.
Strong, thinner profile, pre-stretched flying lines mean less parasitic drag and uncompromised direct performance. With 88m of flying lines in the air, you can really feel the difference thinner line creates. Our latest technology high-load LIROS DC-401 Pro flying lines have extreme stretch resistance and minimal diameter (1.6mm).
Fine tune the turning speed of your kite. The Navigator is available in three sizes 50-55cm (L), 45-50cm (M) and 38-43cm (S). To extend/retract bar length simply pull out cassettes on the bar-ends, rotate 180 degrees and snap back into place.
Feel more connected. The Navigator is designed with a comfortable ergonomic grip for a natural grasp and the tactile offset finger bar is slightly oval, so you can feel when the control bar is orientated correctly. The colour-coded bar ends, leader tubing and line retainer pull tabs give a nod to our sailing heritage, port (red) and starboard (green).
Our oval-shaped leash pin ring is elongated for easier fastening of the leash carabiner, and spins to help prevent your landing line from twisting.
Top-quality German-made extremely high wear Dyneema depower and trim lines, with special impregnation coating for resistance to abrasion.
