It’s been a few years since the 2nd generation of the UniBar had set a new standard for control bars. What has Blade Kiteboarding done in those four years? They listened. They observed. They took notes. Then they applied! And now they’re ready to present you with the most thrilling bar you have ever experienced!
Forget about manually spinning the front line swivel after looping your kite. From now on all you need to do is pull in the bar and your front lines will automatically unravel. Below the Bar Swivel Having the swivel below the bar gives the UniBar better functionality, allowing the automatic line detwister to operate flawlessly, making sure your lines are correctly aligned 100% of the time.
Lightest Bar in the Market
Creating a bar that is both light and strong is such an integral part of the bar’s performance. That’s why Blade made their bar even lighter with a CNC aluminum center insert, totaling at a weight of 318g, the lightest bar with integrated floats in the market.
Not all kite riders were made the same. Some have long arms, some short. Some like waves, some freestyle. That’s why Blade made a point of designing an adjustable bar throw so you can choose the length that suits you. Not only that, they also added a magnet so that the depower strap does not dangle and will always stay in place.
Some bars ignore the physics of the human body. Blade chose to comply – setting the UniBar at an angle that aligns with the stance of your arms as you ride.
Front-to-Back Dual Grip Layer
Blade wants their kite riders to be free of any limitations, so Blade added a custom-made layer of bottom grip enhancers to make it extra comfortable throughout the ride.
Molded Bar Ends
With a bar that sets the tone for others, everything has to be perfect. That’s why the new UniBar incorporates an exclusively designed molded foam bar end that integrates with the floaters, giving the bar a smooth and comfortable feeling.
100% Activation QR
One key to the UniBar’s success is having the safest quick release in the industry. With 100% activation rate and less than 5kg pull at a load of over 200kgs, it’s no surprise our own design is being implemented by 5 other brands on the market.
Suicide Ring & Safety Line Swivel
The new UniBar fully supports both standard and suicide modes, activating the safety mechanism in either mode. The suicide ring is connected to a dedicated swivel that makes sure it does not dangle on endless rotations and loops.
19+4m Teufelberger FL Line Set
The UniBar is equipped with the highest quality of lines available on the market – the Teufelberger FL series which is manufactured in Austria. All bars come with adjustable 19m + 4m lines so you can choose to ride with 19m or 23m settings.
