From the manufacturer: The Cross over bar is built for riders looking for more control while riding their fixed bridle foil. It is designed to give the pilot an extra edge where it comes to controlling the kite in terms of power and steering.
The Cross over bar brings the feel of a depower kite to fixed bridle by enabling the rider to change the angle of attack of the kite in flight, thereby making it possible to regulate the power the kite produces.
The system is fitted with Ronstan Shock blocks on the brake lines and a Ronstan Orbit 20 Pulley on the front line connection. Additionally, the bar is equipped with the same push away safety as found on the Navigator and Magnet depower bars.
The bar offers two primary safety systems. The first is the release above the bar, when activated the kite falls back on the brake lines and will land, without power, while the pilot is still connected to the kite. The second is the chicken loop with push away safety. This completely releases the kite from the pilot in case of emergency.
