PUNCH OUT SAFETY - 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.
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.
Added benefits of the Trim Loop Include;
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, delivering more bottom end sheeting range for more comfort.
