The team at ION continues to impress in their neverending pursuit of technology. They’ve just released the new SPECTRE Bar, a slimline harness spreader bar with forged carbon, standard on all new 2021 SELECT harnesses. Learn all about it, right here!
Press Release – NEXT LEVEL OF COMFORT AND CONTROL FOR AN UNLIMITED RIDING EXPERIENCE
The SPECTRE Bar is ION’s latest innovation in spreader bar technology. It features a slim outline and is made from forged carbon C30 which makes it also incredibly light. Thanks to the bar’s stiff properties, it provides direct feedback. A super-slim EVA pad minimizes pressure points so you can focus only on your riding. Integrated SPECTRE Flaps on each side made out of Curv material prevent twisting of the bar while still following your movements. The tension lever system guarantees an easy on and off of the harness without having to change the webbings. The SPECTRE Bar comes as standard on all of our new 2021 SELECT harnesses with an aluminum kitesurf hook.
LIGHTWEIGHT: True to our approach of technical kite gear, the SPECTRE Bar is made from injected C30 carbon composite resulting in an unmatched weight-to strength ratio, whilst maintaining a slim outline.
SEAMLESS INTEGRATION: Spectre Flaps on each side made out of Curv material create a seamless integration of the harness and the Spreader Bar and prevent upwards twisting, while still following your movements. Everything stays in place in all riding situations.
EASY HANDLING: The tension lever system guarantees an easy on and off without having to adjust the webbings.
DIRECT FEEDBACK: Due to the stiffness of the injected carbon construction the kites forces are optimally transferred to the harness. This provides a sporty, direct and intuitive kite feeling.
COMFORT: A super-slim EVA pad minimizes pressure points for maximum comfort – Anytime, in any conditions.
