The Ozone Contact Foil Freeride Control Bar is meant for use with Ozone's latest depowerable foil kites: the Hyperlink, Chrono, and R1. Featuring brand new soft bar ends, a push-away release system, above the bar clamcleat depower system, and a brake strap for help with foil kite launching, landing, and inflating.
A clean and simple design, the Ozone Contact Foil Freeride Control Bar features an easy-to-use trim system and features our latest innovation - the Ozone Megatron Click-In Loop.
The innovative Ozone Megatron Click-In Loop is an all-new push-away quick release with an innovative one-step Click-In reload function that is incredibly intuitive. The release handle fits comfortably in the hand, it is quick and easy to activate the release by pushing the handle away. A self-positioning release mechanism locates automatically, ready to be re-loaded by simply 'clicking' in the loop. The Click-In Loop is AFNOR NF S52-503 certified.
What's the first thing you do when you get in a car? You click in your seatbelt, hearing that 'click' sound makes you feel secure that you are safely buckled up, and you know instinctively how to release it. The design of our new release system, the Click-In Loop, is inspired by the same principle. In the same way fastening your seatbelt has become a natural action when getting into a car, riders should activate and reload their release systems before and after every use. Although this important safety check is often overlooked, checking your release before each session will ensure it is functioning properly. We developed the Click-In function to be simple and intuitive, so activating and reloading will become second nature.
The Contact Foil Control System V4 comes in 38cm, 45cm, 50cm, and 55cm bar lengths with foil brake handle and ships standard with a medium size loop.

- Two Release Modes - The Click-In Loop offers riders a choice of two release modes, the recommended Standard or the optional Expert mode.
- Standard mode offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Click-In Loop or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
- Expert mode offers 100% flag out only when the Click-In Loop is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to miss the bar without releasing the kite to flag out (not recommended).
- Three Loop Size Options - Small, Medium and Large size harness loops are available for the Click-In Loop. Choose the Small if you ride hooked in only, have a shorter arm reach or prefer the bar closer to your body. The Medium size is perfect for most riders. The Large size is designed for unhooking or riders with a longer arm reach.
