Best has created the cleanest and highest quality chicken loop assembly on the market with the V3 Redline kitebording control bar.
The bar comes with a lot of the features that Best riders have grown to love like above the bar depower, comfortable grip, and the Delrin insert to keep the chicken loop line lasting a long time. The most important addition is the below bar 100% flagging depower system that Best had added to the Redline safety.
Best Redline v3 Tech Specs:
• 2013 Redline v3 Bar Sizes 47cm, 52cm, 57cm
• 22m colored line on all size bars
• Best Kite Leash
What we like:
With the addition of a below bar kite flagging safety system and a quick release that does not false release, Best has finally made a bar that the REAL Lesson Center can sign off on. You can set up the Reline Safety for a handle pass suicide leash. The V3 Redline Bar is the only bar on the market that you can have a handle pass safety that will also flag the kite to a 100% depowered position if you push the chicken loop release. If you are tall enough to reach the depower strap(5'6 and taller), the above bar depower is much easier to power up and depower on the fly. The quick release is really clean and locks into place.
What we don't like:
The bar ends are big and chunky. There is nothing technically wrong with them, but it looks and feels like you have a pillow on the end of your bar.
Why you want the Best v3 Redline Bar:
The equal lines on the Redline bar allow you to use this on most hybrid kites, and you will want to upgrade your kites to the cutting edge of safety and performance in kiteboarding bars with the Redline v3.
