Quick Release

Before using the control bar you MUST fully understand how the quick release works and are confident in releasing and re-engaging the quick release system. We recommend releasing and re-engaging the safety release at least 6 times to familiarize yourself.


The Quick Release is an important part of your safety equipment. It must be checked regularly, kept clean and free of any damage.
Before every use release and re-engage the release to check proper function.


Simply spin the swivel in the reversed direction the lines are twisted in. It is important to keep your lines twist free to ensure the kite flags freely.

Trim System
