The Dakine sliding spreader bar can be attached to almost any harness to add an increased range of movement when kitesurfing in the waves. We have tested this harness with both Mystic and Dakine harnesses and it's very easy to install on both.
What we like:
The hook on this bar slides from side to side while riding which will stop your harness from rotating around your middle. We really like the design - it's simple, strong and gimmick-free. If you spend time riding toeside or riding waves - this will make a big difference to your sessions. Unlike most other sliding products out there - this spreader bar will still allow you to unhook and hook back in easily which is definitely a big positive.
What we don't like:
The spreader bar doesn't have a mechanism to hold the hook by default in the middle of the pad. This takes a little getting used to because when riding normally, the hook won't always come to rest in the middle of your body.
Why you want the Dakine Sliding Spreader Bar:
Because you are tired of your harness constantly rotating around your middle and want a bigger range of motion so that you can up your game when kitesurfing in the waves.
