KRS Safety Spreader Bar: safety can be universal

The new KRS Safety Spreader Bar by Mystic has been developed to increase safety levels in kiteboarding.

Kiteboarding has claimed many lives. The power of the wind can be disastrous if kiteboarders don't follow basic safety procedures.

Mystic believes to have found a standardized kite release system, which works with all brands. The KRS Safety Spreader Bar is a new release system that can be found on the left side of your harness, a location that is always within easy reach.

A pull on the release handle and the hook comes loose from your spreader bar. With a simple move - three clicks - the hook can be installed again and you can continue with your kite session.

Currently, all release systems are different and this makes it confusing for kiteboarders. The KRS Safety Spreader Bar is designed for riders who are concerned about safety, but also for beginners in the sport.

Dimitri Maramenides, the founder and owner of Epic Kites, rode his kite a few hours before Hurricane Florence hit the East Coast of the United States.
