Bar sizing is very personal and depends on the style of riding you prefer, your home spot conditions and your skill level as well as preference.
Depending on the riding style certain riders prefer a small bar, particularly for Freestyle and Strapless Wave Riding where the rider prefers to 'park' the kite.
A smaller bar is less 'in your face' and easier to move around.
Very advanced Big Air riders also prefer a small bar as it results in the kite turning slower, giving more direct feedback and slower, lower and more dramatic mega loops.
Smaller bars also reduce the chance of the kite being suddenly steered into the wrong position, as a small bar requires a more aggressive input to steer the kite.
For those that want to turn a kite fast, particularly for larger kites, larger bar lengths are recommended.

Fluid kiteboarding has been improving the bar standard for years, with many brand copying our simple style control system. No over engineered design but a clean low maintanance bar is what we go for.
The CSG bar has been designed by Gilion for extreme riding! As kiteboarding is developing into a more and more extreme sport with riders taking their equipment into super extreme conditions. It was just a matter of time before we had to produce a extreme ridgid control system. CSG is a 4 line control system with a single frontline safetysystem. The CSG bar comes with 500KG frontlines and 350KG backlines with very low stretch. The extremely strong lines make equipement failure a thing from the passed.
The single frontline safetysystem works in all conditions wether it's lightwind or stronger wind. Activate our new QR by pulling up the red cover and the chickenloop will open up. The bar will shoot up on 1 of the frontlines until it hits the stopper. You can now recover the kite and reassemble the QR or do a packdown.
Trimming the kite is very easy with the above the bar clamcleat system. The throw of the bar is 40cm prefect for people with short arms! All lines are equall so you can use the CSG bar on pretty much any kite. The frontlines split at a low V which reduces the amount of pull onto the wingshape. Perfect for any kite in our range!
The CSG bar a very safe and easy to use control bar

CRAZYFLY: SICK BAR 2020
Simple and clean.
The only bar made in Europe
AFNOR NF S52-503 certified safety
Single front line flag out
Complete sick bar with 4 x 24m flying lines
Short safety leash
The 2020 CrazyFly Sick Bar is a state of the art control system blending together safety, comfort, durability and simplicity.
With safety being the top priority, the Sick bar has a single front line flag out. It ensures 100% collapse of the kite in all situations when the safety is triggered.
The Sick Click push away quick release conforms to the French safety norm AFNOR NF S52-503. It can be easily triggered with low force in all conditions. Re-loading the Sick Click system is fast and easy, even in difficult conditions.
The CrazyFly Sick Bar can be used in two safety modes: standard and suicide. The standard safety mode provides 100% safety in all situations. We strongly recommend to use the standard safety mode. The suicide modes should only be used by experts, because it does not offer full depower of the kite when losing the bar.
The Sick Bar features Marine SS Smart Cleat, which is strategically placed above the bar, for easy power adjustments on the go. Under the Smart Cleat, we designed a brand new DuPont® Polymer Stoperball, which also unites the PU Tube and Smart Cleat. We completely re-worked the leash connection point below the quick release and introduced the Spinnect untwist leash connector.
The bar ends are shorter and stiffer while the floaters can be nicely folded for easy pack downs and safe self rescue.
Sick bar exclusive, it features a brand new premium Italian Tecno Prestige Leather grip from for unmatched comfort and long lasting durability.
The swivel is integrated under the bar, where it is easy and comfortable to reach for untwisting the front lines after a rotational trick or a kite loop.
Making things simple and clean, we covered the safety line and the center line in a PU tube. The PU tube prevents all wear and tear of the central line and allows for smooth sheeting and handling of the kite.
For unmatched comfort and durability, the bar itself has a full carbon construction, making it one of the strongest and lightest bars on the market.
The Sick Bar is the first and only bar made 100% in Europe in the CrazyFly factory and made only from European materials and components.
The Sick Bar is topped with high quality Liros® Dyneema flying lines made in Germany. The lines are pre-stretched with a heavy load, ensuring no further elongation of the lines. Dark grey color of the lines makes them clearly visible when setting up the kite in snow.
Packed with all the great features, yet still comfortable and safe to use. The 2020 CrazyFly Sick Bar – Simple and Clean.
