Features

Groove Bar

Carbon Composite Bar

The Groove Bar’s carbon composite build delivers unparalleled strength while setting the new standard in lightweight bars. Ergonomically shaped for comfort, the under bar U channel houses the trim line and is easily flushed of all debris, ensuring smooth and reliable trim adjustment every time. Plush moulded EVA grip with integrated bar floats deliver float, superior grip, and tangle free back lines. An added benefit of the plush EVA grip and Carbon Polymer bar is warmer on the hands than Aluminium tube bars for cold weather riding and the entire bar is built to float! Retracting bar end bungees keep your flying lines snug and secure during storage.

Roto Hub

Below Bar Twisted Line Management

The Roto Hub is the brains of the system, containing the front line re-ride routing and end points. The cap is held in place with an easy to remove pin making inspection and servicing simple and quick

``Hour Glass`` Bar Opening

Made with marine grade stainless steel, the center hole is highly tapered to accept the rugged 12mm PU tubing. The refined shape delivers smooth sheeting at extreme angles.

All-in-one PU Tube

Centre Line and Safety all-in-one

Featuring newly designed 12mm PU tubing with individual compartments for both the main centre line and the safety lines, the Shift Bar ensures line wear, line twists and safety release issues are a thing of the past.

Generation 8 Quick Release System

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

Helix Force Tension

Line Payout System

Patent Pending. The Helix Force Tensioned rear lines ensure clean paying rear lines even with slack back line. This feature is crucial when rigging on the beach, allowing you to easily depower your kite before launch, even with no tension on the back lines. Helix Force Tensioning provides perfect spooling every time, regardless of line tension from the kite.

Roto Bit

Lightweight Line Splitter

Locked in and rotating in unison with the Roto Hub, there is no chance for line twists within the trim line tube. This ensures easy front line flag outs and makes line twists easy to sort out on the water.

20`` HD Kite Leash

Heavy duty 2.5cm wide webbing with flat elastic core. Corrosion resistant stainless clip with neoprene cover. Punch out (push away) release cuff with pin and loop reset.

G-Stop

On The Fly Stopper Adjustment

The easily adjusted, single handed, on-the-fly bar stopper! The Ocean Rodeo Stick Shift ultra clean front line set-up offers up to 1.2 meters in sheeting range. Realise the full sheeting range of your kite by pushing the stopper out to your maximum reach. New riders can slide the stopper completely out to maximum throw for near total depower on SLE kites by simply just letting go of the bar. All styles of rider will appreciate the flexible stopper positioning for specific moves

Pigtails

Compatible with all 4 Line Kites

The Stick Shift ships with an assortment of premium pigtails, ensuring compatibility with all major kite brands. Each pigtail is individually marked with length, allowing you to also adjust for eventual front line stretch.

Premium Liros Flying Lines

German made Liros DC 401 Ultra HD flying lines, tested to 580 kg (1275 lbs). Lower sections of front lines are Liros D-Pro. Lines are coloured for easy rigging. Front line re-ride is orange for easy identification while resetting the system
