2011 Airush Access Smart Bar

The 2011 ACCESS SMART Bar is the quintessential high tech bar that today’s riders demand. Designed to be used with the NEW Airush ACCESS short-line kite.

With its debut in 2010, the patent-pending SMART Bar has redefined simplicity, safety and versatility with the first fully adjustable length bar control system, allowing the luxury of maintaining just one bar. A newly designed BRAIN Quick Release System, plenty of fine tuned refinements, and a whole new look, the 2011 SMART Bar is the definitive bar choice for any and all riders.

Amazingly, the Smart Bar fuses these revolutionary new design characteristics with simplistic and highly intuitive features, creating a bar that is highly tunable, safe and easy to use. Compatible with all of our kites, the SMART Bar features a redesigned union center rivet with a larger opening and softer radiuses for reduced wear on the depower line.

With the new 2011 BRAIN Quick Release System, we have engineered the most complete control system to date, offering unmatched performance and absolute simplicity.
