What We Like:
The Response bar is clean and simple. All the features on the bar are straightforward and easy to use. The quick release can be reassembled in the water if you release it.
The two features that made the biggest impact on our test team were the adjustable depower line height (adjustable throw) and the adjustable bar ends. You can slide the depower cleat up or down the main line (aka trim line or depower rope) depending on your height and arm length. The bar end adjusters are really simple and you can change the bar length while you are riding. Both are super cool features that work, don’t break, and really help your riding.
The new leash is super strong and made out of a material that no one is using. We have been putting it through the paces and it is holding up to daily abuse.
The center depower line is on a continuous loop. This allows you to still have a lot of depower capability even if you move the depower cleat up or down. Any time you are adjusting the cleat setting, make sure that the rope is slack and not under tension.
The grip on the Response bar is nice and soft for you hands. Some people wished that the bar was a little skinnier but commented that the grip was softer on their hands than most other bars they tested.
The flagging safety line can double as a suicide leash by running the chicken loop through the larger hole on the flagging line ring. This is a nice feature for the unhooked wakestyle riders.
Who wants the Response Bar?
The LF Response Bar has equal line lengths so it can be used with most kites on the market. It is packed with high-end features but keeps true to the “keep it simple stupid” theory that LF have been going after with their 2016 line up. Every tester that used the Response bar loved it, and we're confident you'll love it too.
New & improved for 2016, the Response Control Bar features a redesigned chicken-loop and quick release system, adjustable bar throw, above the bar depower and adjustable bar length from 46cm to 56cm.
Liquid Force's Description:
The Response Control Bar has on the fly adjustable bar length, adjustable depower distance, and above the bar depower. Redesigned and engineered from the loop up, the Response bar offers unsurpassed safety, user customization, and a seamless connection to your kite.
