The following new features have been added to the RRD Global Bar V8:

  • Rotating chicken loop, that acts as a swivel, to easily untwist your front lines
  • The new simplified safety system flags the kite on the front line which makes the kite de-power 100% in case you need it
  • Standard equipped with a short leash (approx.. 50cm or 20”) to attach on the front of your harness
  • Optional: thicker and longer leash specifically for the handle passing riders

Standard Features:

  • A moulded chicken loop finger that has a multiple pre-set position rotor head which allows you to move the finger to any desired position. It’s very easy to move it out of the way for riders that like to un-hook
  • A double chamber de-power rope with safety line is made of high quality indestructible polyurethane which makes the bar slide easy and you will never have to replace it
  • CNC milled and anodised aluminium central bar component with oversized oval recesses to improve de-power tube sliding; even during some extreme steering
  • The length of the de-power rope can be adjusted with the de-power stopper EVA float
  • Test-winning diameter of the bar tube for the best grip
  • Chicken loop safety release system with oversized handle and increased sliding potential of all components to secure an effective functionality over the years. This is the safety release system in the market with the least amount of steel components, meaning longer lifetime and less maintenance
  • Moulded stainless steel safety leash double ring, angled to a position that facilitates safety leash attachment
  • Customised stainless steel de-power rope cleat designed around the double chamber tube, allowing the security line to slide freely
  • Moulded floating side caps injected with high memory EVA which facilitates a better bar grip and increased safety
  • Oversized color coded side floaters that guarantee the floatation of the bar and easy rolling of the flying lines with line-locking system.

By simply pushing up or down the EVA float you can trim the de-power rope length according to the length of your arms or depending on the conditions you are kiting in. This stopper ball is a handy feature for people with shorter arms or for specific tricks like the dead-man. This can also be used to make the kite more stable in light wind, which is useful for schools.

In addition to the new features, the ‘RRD Global Bar V6’ is still equipped with special lines called ‘Rigid Thread Lines’. These are used exclusively on the RRD bars with great success for over 7 years. A product that’s now widely tested around the world, but there is little known about the details by kiteboarders.

The ‘Rigid Thread Lines‘ are the result of the collaborations with an Italian manufacturing company that has more than fifty years of experience in the processing of textile fibres, using the most recent and innovative exotic fibres, combined with an intimate knowledge of the physical and mechanical properties of dyneema.

Why are RRD kite lines innovative?

Unlike standard braided lines, the unidirectional structure of ‘Rigid Thread Lines’ provides a fiber memory that is significantly more efficient. A standard braided line under stress combines all ‘dynamic elongation’ of the fiber and flattening of the braid, whereas the core unidirectional structure uses exclusively the elastic modules of the fiber.
