Introducing the Ocean Rodeo Stick Shift featuring R3 Designs’ bar end trim adjustment.
Fine tune your kite’s trim using one easily reached and adjusted control knob. Twist in small quarter turn increments to add power, bump or nudge to depower. This intuitive, easy to use system is ideal for any size rider and ensures you have ‘hands on’ control when depowering the kite.
At the heart of the system is the new ergonomically designed U shaped bar. This unique, lightweight design ensures rapid flushing of all sand and debris while offering easy inspection and access to all moving parts for in-the-field repairs.
Our adjustable sliding stopper ball needs no special tools or set screws to hold in place and can be adjusted while on the water or riding. Stick Shift bar end trim adjustment means no front line swivels, no rings, no cleats, no flopping trim line that’s forever out of reach. It also means the front lines are clear for a safe and secure front line re-ride every time.
