2019 Duotone Click Control Bar
2019 Duotone Click Bar
What Duotone has to say about the 2019 Click Bar:
The Duotone Click Bar revolutionized how we control our kites, on a completely new level! Now additionally available is a narrower version of the Click Bar, only 42cm wide and a line length of 20m plus 2m extensions! Also there are four different chicken loop options available offering maximum performance and customization.
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 your kite, turn the Winder clockwise – this shortens the length of your backlines with every half turn. To depower, 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 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.
- Small: 42cm wide, with 20-22m lines
- Medium: 49cm wide, with 22-24m lines

Have been running this bar for the last 3 month. Very happy - love how clean it is, simplicity of control and automatic lines unwind. Do wash it out every time after I use it, including internally through the access ports but it is no big deal IMO, good way to finish day of kiting by washing down your gear with a hose. Definitely do recommend, I now have 2 of these both sizes and these are my main bars.
