Perfection through simplicity
Witness next-level innovation, functional design, and clean esthetic in the ultra-light Sensor 3 – a legendary control bar with groundbreaking features.
Super light and strong.
The integrated titanium truss ensures our twin auto-untwist center lines that pass through the center of the bar do not affect the bombproof rigidity of our bar. It might be overkill, but we prefer it that way. And if the center lines wear out the bar guide, replace it with a fresh one.
No divots, sharp corners, or hard protruding ends on this bar.
The clean, minimalistic and soft bar ends don't just look fantastic but are super grippable. After your fun sesh, the bar ends fold open to reveal hidden line winders.
The narrow, non-slip asymmetric grip is easy on the hands – even for marathon sessions. Contrasting colors provide improved left/right visual guidance. And a thin redline on the underside lets you know if the bar is reversed.
Feel more "connected" to your kite with floaters that don't interfere with the natural movement of the steering lines as they end a few centimeters above the bar. And adjust bar width (50/46.5cm) by merely swiveling the line block hidden under the Stealth Winders. We also disappeared the elastic line keepers into the floaters for a clean, uncluttered kite session.
Twisted lines are a thing of the past.
Untwisting your front lines after looping your kite is as simple as pulling in the bar. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 3 bar where a ceramic swivel unravels the front lines automatically. Another benefit is the sweet "between the fingers" comfort when your hand straddles the center lines due to the narrow width and special coating.
A bar's safety system is the critical link between you and your kite. It needs to work flawlessly and intuitively. The Sensor 3's new QR (quick release) meets or exceeds all safety requirements and most importantly, is easier than ever to reconnect.
Safe is good.
The heart of our new Core Intuitive Connect Release is our push-out and easy click-back-in quick release. The red CIC Release cap is designed to provide superior grip in emergency situations. And reconnecting the quick release is as simple as re-inserting the chickenloop end into the CIC mechanism until you hear it click in. CIC Release. Just release and click back in.
CORE LOOPS & STICK SETS
The small loop comes standard on the Sensor 3 and is designed for freeriders and freestylers who mostly ride hooked. The smaller loop size lowers the adjuster height, which benefits shorter riders. An elasticized chicken stick is easily manipulated to make hooking in faster. After hooking in, the chicken stick can be passed through the harness hook to avoid unintentional unhooking.
The Rope Slider loop is our recommended solution for wave and foil riders who use a rope harness. Its compact design brings the bar closer to the body and improves lateral movement without annoying harness slippage. To reduce friction and wear on the spreader bar rope, the metal surface of our loop is finely ground by hand. The Rope Slider is only intended for use with a sliding rope spreader bar. The safety ring can be attached in semi-suicide mode, so the leash's carabiner stays at the same level of the quick release and out of the way.
Radical wakestylers, freestylers, and unhooked kiters will prefer our largest available chickenloop. Its size makes unhooking and hooking back in easy and intuitive. Naturally, the distance to the trim adjuster increases, so you should keep that in mind. To prevent unintentional unhooking, use the chicken stick and when you don't need it, simply move it outside the loop where it won't get in the way.
