Introducing the Pilot Bar, the cleanest, easiest to use front line trim bar to date.
Combining time tested components and materials, the Pilot bar delivers enhanced precision and control to front line trim.
Our Take on the Pilot - whole lot of innovation and refinement here. Its a super clean, rugged design where they've thought of all those little things that go into a great control bar. Safety line is no longer exposed, CL works flawlessly and easy to reset, and the flying lines - OMG like steering your kite on steel cables!
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.
Push release cuff remains locked up and ready to reset after an eject making reset quite literally a “snap”
More than just a block or pulley, this is the smoothest action roller we’ve ever used. Combined with the precision cleating action of the Cleat Lock you can micro trim with precision even when full powered.
