The Contact-Snow Control System offers the latest in release features, a clean control bar design and a simple easy-to-use trimming system.
Push Away Quick Release – The control system features our Megatron push-away quick release with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.
Two Release Modes – The Megatron offers riders a choice of two release modes, the recommended Standard or the optional Expert mode.
• Standard mode offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked. It activates the all new Internal Re-ride Release System on the kite. The kite will stall and fall to the ground without any power. After reassembling the chicken loop you can launch your kite and ride again.
• Expert mode offers 100% flag out only when the Megatron is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to let go of the bar without releasing the kite to flag out (not recommended).
Anti-twist Flag Out Line and Spinning Handle – The flag out line running through the Megatron & kite leash attachment at the bottom keeps the leash tangle free when doing rotations and manually unwinding the centre lines using the Spinning Handle.
Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle auto positions the chicken loop when unhooking.
New Bar End with Stainless Steel Leader Line Pin - Superior strength is achieved with a Stainless pin running through the bar. This creates an ultra strong and direct connection between the control bar to flying lines.
Easy Flying Line Sorting - If your flying lines get twisted you can easily undo them from the bar leader lines by opening the larks head knot and removing the twists. No need to walk up to your kite anymore.
NOTE: Activate the Internal Re-ride Release System by pulling the 5th line through the chicken loop and secure it at the spliced in loop approx 2m up the line before you undo any flying line from the bar leader lines.
Hand Brake Handle – Easily land or reverse launch your kite using the Hand Brake Handle
Magnetic Trim Handle – The Magnetic trim handle connects to a magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when the trimmer is de-powered.
Low Friction Centre Piece – The control bar features a low friction centre piece designed to reduce wear.
PU Covered De-power Line – The tough PU covered de-power line significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out.
Ronstan Orbit Pulley – The smooth running Ronstan Orbit Pulley also prevents trim line wear.
Clamcleat Trimmer – Anodized low abrasion Clamcleat trimmer.
Flying Lines – Colour coded 500kg front / 300kg back lines (300kg/200kg with the Ultralight)
Back Line Trim Option – Two different settings on the back leader lines allow you to customize your trim.
EVA Grip – Lightly sanded with ergonomic finger bumps providing the ultimate bar grip.
The Contact-Snow Control System bar sizes come in 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or for riders wanting even easier hooking in & out.
