Utilising top of the line components and materials the Chrono Race Control System is smooth and reliable on the course. Incorporating a double pulley system offers minute trimming on the go, allowing the racer to hike out maintaining maximum power against the fins. 300kg front and 200kg back lines reduce drag for faster speeds on the course.
Push Away Quick Release – The control system features our Megatron push-away quick release with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive release forces for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.
Two Release Modes – The Megatron 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 Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
• Expert mode offers 100% flag out only when the Megatron is released whilst hooked in, allowing riders practicing handle passes to let go of the bar without releasing the kite to flag out (not recommended).
Anti-twist Flag Out Line and Spinning Handle – The flag out line running through the Megatron & kite leash attachment at the bottom keeps the leash tangle free when doing rotations and manually unwinding the centre lines using the Spinning Handle.
Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle auto positions the chicken loop when unhooking.
Double Pulley Trim System – Offers minute trimming on the go, allowing the racer to hike out maintaining maximum power against the fins.
Low Friction Centre Piece – The control bar features a low friction centre piece designed to reduce wear.
PU Covered De-power Line - The tough PU covered de-power line significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out.
Stainless Steel Trimmer Bracket and Ronstan Orbit Pulley – The smooth running trimmer bracket and Ronstan pulley also prevent trim line wear.
Clamcleat Trimmer – Anodized low abrasion Clamcleat trimmer.
Hand Brake Handle – Easily land or reverse launch your kite using the Hand Brake Handle.
Low Drag Race Flying Lines – Colour coded 300kg front / 200kg back lines.
EVA Grip - Lightly sanded with ergonomic finger bumps providing the ultimate bar grip.
The Chrono Race Control System bar sizes come in 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or requiring even easier hooking in & out.
MEGATRON PUSH-AWAY CHICKEN LOOP
The Megatron Chicken Loop features push-away release with total flag out of the kite. The release handle is ergonomic with positive forces for quick and easy release. Simple re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster.
All riders should attach their kite leash to the total flag out system. This is the small eyelet of the steel ring at the bottom of the Megatron. When the chicken loop is released, the kite will flag out and fall to the water/ground.
Advanced Riders: (not recommended, use at your own risk)
Riders performing unhooked tricks or who are more confident and have spent many hours kiting can attach to the ring using the Expert mode, where the chickenloop runs through the large eye of the steel ring.
NOTE: When letting go of the bar in Expert mode (without releasing the Megatron, e.g. missed handle pass) the kite will depower but WILL NOT flag out. Be aware in this situation, the Megatron will be out of reach and can therefore not be released. When hooked in and releasing the Megatron the steel ring automatically slips off the chicken loop and the kite will flag out.
In all situations make sure that all lines are clear of all working release systems and the kite leash is connected in the right way.
