`` We are proud of how clean the Pilot bar is. It maintains subtle complexity with simple, elegant design. There are no loose depower lines because they’re all contained in the dual chamber trim tube `` - Nesan Furtado - Ocean Rodeo

Features

Gen 8 Punch OUT Trim loop

In 2001, Ocean Rodeo designed and patented the push away release trim loop. Seventeen years later, the push action is firmly entrenched as the primary method of release throughout the kite boarding industry. As a brand we are very proud to have innovated what is considered a key component, critical to the growth of the sport.

Reliable in both slack line and full powered situations, the push away motion works in opposition to the static connection between rider and control bar, providing a smooth release in all situations.

For added security, the stainless release pin is shrouded by the release cuff, guarding your hand from release pin motion during activation.

The push release cuff tension has been tuned for easy operation in an emergency, yet secure enough to hold firm against the inevitable bumps and bangs encountered while riding.

The entire Gen 8 trim loop assembly has been shortened by 2 cm vs Gen 7 delivering more bottom end sheeting range

Smooth Roller

More than just a block or pulley, this is the smoothest action roller Ocean Rodeo have ever used. Combined with the precision cleating action of the Cleat Lock you can micro trim with precision even when full powered.

Refined Roto Hub

The below bar line swivel “Roto Hub” has been further refined on the Ocean Rodeo Pilot Bar creating even smoother re-ride action and line twist management

Cleat Lock

Using marine grade stainless steel for maximum bite the dual purpose cleat lock provides easy trim control with superb line management with velcro hold down.

Integrated Bar Floats

The Ocean Rodeo Pilot Bar has EVA Bar floats and bar ends molded in one piece which minimises the chance of the bar wrapping around lines during wipe-outs while the shock cord line holders make line storage a snap.

‘All In’ Center Line

The rugged 12 mm diameter center line houses flag out depower line and primary load bearing center line so there is no exposed flag out lines or ropes to chafe your fingers, abrade or tangle.
