Control Bar

The control bar Liquid Force introduced for the 2010 range of kites is called the CPR. The name is short for Centerline Push Release. Why did Liquid Force select this name? Why because the control bar is designed around a breakthrough Center Line Push Release safety system

Here is what you can expect to get from the CPR control system:

  • Depower options: 100% depower flag line leash attachment option and 90% depower leash attachment setting. The 100% depower flag line leash attachment option will completely depower the kite while the rider is hooked and the bar is released. The 90% depower leash attachment setting, which can be used by attaching the leash to the end of the mainline, allows the rider to repeatedly depower the kite in a safe manner.
  • Below the bar depower cleat – a 3D cleat is molded into the CPR chicken loop and the power adjustment mainline runs through the aforementioned 3D molded cleat.
  • Center Line Push Release – the rider can easily and safely release the kite with just one hand, it doesn’t matter which.
  • No mechanical or metal parts – all the parts are molded plastic, meaning they are impervious to rust, corrosion sand, salt, heat, and other factors that may cause harm to the bar.

6m – 24+ knots

Please note that the wind ranges are based on a 75kg (165lbs) rider. Actual wind ranges may vary according to your body weight and ability level, and according to water conditions, board size, and riding style. You should always use common sense and your personal experience when selecting a kite size. If you don’t know what kite size to use, talk to other riders and see what they’re using on the water.
