Description

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.

Size:

  • Small: 42cm wide, with 20-22m lines
  • Medium: 49cm wide, with 22-24m lines

Technology

The Winder

The Winder

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

The Button

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. The kite has less power. Pushing the button once is one depower step.

LINE LENGTH ADVISER

The length of Duotone flying lines can make a huge difference to the way a kite flies. Different styles of riding, different kite models or the kite size are influencing factors that require different line length. In order to achieve maximum comfort and to receive the best performance of a kite, it is essential to match the kite and the rider’s style of riding to the correct line length!

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE DUOTONE CLICK BAR AND THE DUOTONE TRUST BAR?

IRON HEART
The Duotone Click Bar is equipped with the Iron Heart 5, which automatically “swivels” the kite’s power lines. This is particularly beneficial after jumps with rotations. With the Duotone Trust Bar these lines have to be adjusted by hand while riding.

LINE LENGTHS 
The Duotone Click Bar is available with a line length of 20/22 metres and 22/24 metres. This lets you adjust the length of the line as desired. The V-position can also be altered to adapt the bar perfectly for your kite. The Duotone Trust Bar is available with line lengths of 19m, 22m, 24m and 27m.

DEPOWERING
Thanks to the unique depower system on the Duotone Click Bar, you no longer need to adjust your body position when you want to power or depower your kite. This is particularly beneficial for smaller riders with shorter arms. It also removes the need for all the annoying lines required for traditional depower systems.

BAR WIDTHS
The Duotone Click Bar is available in two sizes, with a bar width of 42cm or 49cm. The Duotone Trust Bar is also available in two widths, but has a flip-flop function on the floaters for adjusting the bar width. This permits possible bar widths of 42cm/49cm and 46cm/53cm.

STOPPER
The Duotone Click Bar is equipped with a sliding stopper. Above a certain pressure, it slides upwards thus providing the very highest level of safety. The Click Bar’s stopper can also be fixed using a grub screw so that it no longer slides (not recommended). The stopper on the Duotone Trust Bar can be used as a fixed stopper, which opens up new possibilities for board-off tricks.

5TH LINE
Both the Duotone Click Bar and the Duotone Trust Bar come by default as a 4 line bar and can be extended with a 5th line. The Click Bar S can also be upgraded with the Hadlow line setup.

Duotone Click Bar 2019 Setup

In 2020 the Duotone Click Bar can be upgraded within 3 minutes to a 5-Line Bar. The upgrade kit features a real center line safety.

 WITH ALL 5 - LINE ADVANTAGES:

  • Easy relaunch, especially on big kites and low winds
  • Instant and accessible depower
  • shorter 5th Element upgrade kit available for 20m plus 2m 
  • compatible with Hadlow Setup

    Love the clean feel and controls

    Posted by Sergi on 1st Jul 2020

    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.
