Cabrinha Quicklink IDS control bar 2012
Cabrinha redesigned the their IDS control bar system in 2012 and have made several significant improvements to improved the ergonomic design and reduced clutter.
Features of 2012 Cabrinha Quicklink IDS control Bar include:
Internal swivel that allows flying lines spin in unison with landing lines and a fully spinning centreline landed system
Spinning leash connection that allows leash to rotate around harness loop.
Soft EVA bar ends have smooth curves and edges
Bar ends lowered and widened to accommodate line set winding
Floating bar ends provided buoyancy. Bar floats with lines attached.
Centreline and landing line internalised in tubing - declutters and protects line from abrasion
Wider centre hole fitting - steering and sheeting smoother and reduces friction when steering
Recoil spring positions bungy trim adjustors within reach, and helps unspin bar
3 stage security system
The bar has a 3 stage security system:
1. Depower on demand
Push bar towards kite
Kite will de-power and fly down and land gently
2. Quick Release 1 (QR1)

Used to land the kite
3. Quick Release 2 (QR2)

Used when you need to jettison the kite if there is hazard, risk or your kite is caught in big surf
Omni directional - either hand can operate
Cannot be operated unless QR1 handle is activated.
