The version 7 of a great bar with a great history of performance and reliability. We have taken out any unecessary items instead of adding them, to make every component more functional. Simply say :”you cannot break what does not exist”.
Everything must be there at your fingertips and must work instantly when you really need it.
A simple bar that works. Everyday. For a long period of time.
The Global Bar V7 has been designed around the idea of safety, functionality and durability.
The ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ will always be visually, technically and feeling compact and rigid throughout the course of their lives, maintaining all its physical and technical characteristics unaltered over the time.
The standard braided kite line has more stretch, which results in different line lengths, power absorption and reduction of performance, especially at the moment where you change the direction of the kite, where the load of the lines reaches its peaks.
Another weakness of the standard braided line that ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ have turned into a strength are unchanged compactness of the line.
Any new conventional line, has a rigid and compact character because of the resin (generally polyurethane-based) that encompasses it. This resin has a very short life and after only a few sessions, the touch of the product is softer.
This translates into a series of annoying consequences such as:
- The softened lines are more subject to unwanted knots.
- The protection of the line is reduced after each session.
- The braid tends to open and it becomes more fragile, allowing the entry of water which will create small salt crystals inside in case you kite in salt water, which can impair the bearing structure of the line.
