Control Bar

2008 marks the third year that the good people at North have been tinkering with the 5th Element control bar and it shows. The functionality of the iron heart and safety leash has been drastically improved (they now work as a charm even though they have to perform in sandy and wet saltwater conditions. The sliding stopper and stopper ball offer great hold on the control bar. Making super fast adjustments is always an option thanks to the Vario cleat.


  • Lighter iron heart that offers reduced release forces.
  • A single continuous depower line.
  • You no longer have to adjust the lines thanks to the Vario cleat (which is now lighter and has a simple location adjustment).
