Liquid Force Direct Drive Control Bar

In collaboration with R3 Design, Liquid Force is proud to introduce the Direct Drive control bar.  On-the-fly trimming of the kite has never been easier with the bar-mounted Sidewinder control know.  This intuitive system adjusts the kite's power by trimming the rear lines of the kite. 

Not only is the system easy for smaller riders to reach, but offers fast adjustments for everyone.  Bump out for de-power and use quarter-turn increments to power back up.  This unique system incorporates an ergonomically designed carbon composite bar with easy access to clean and maintain the trim system. 


  • Quick Release - Push-away, non-detachable quick release:  Simply push away the trim loop to kill all the power in the kite, while one side of this safety system stays attached.
  • Loop -  Molded Trim Loop with 100% depower: reliable, safe and simple to use.
  • Swivel - Manual mainline swivel: Below the bar swivel for easy center line twist management 
  • Grip - Textures EVA grip
  • Bat Width - Standard 52cm fixed width
  • Adjustable Stopper - Easy to use adjustable stopper allows the rider to adjust depower throw length.  Additionally, the stopper can be set to reduce arm fatigue when riding.
  • Flying Line - 300kg flying lines: Highest quality monofilament braided pre-stretched flying lines 20m+3mm extensions
  • Depower - Sidewinder control knob for easy and intuitive hands-on control
  • High-Y Splitter - Front line High Y for adjustable kite turning and bar pressure.

Liquid Force Direct Drive Control Bar - At a Glance

The new Direct Drive Control Bar from Liquid Force is a completely new design. This bar is clean and simple to use but does take time to adjust to. The depower system is a knob that you twist forward for more power (by shortening the steering/back lines) and backwards for less power (by lengthening the steering/back lines). This bar also has a stopper bar (a great feature to customize the bar) which many other bars have removed. Swivel is manual and very clean to use. I really like how easy it is to depower without reaching. This allows you stay in the proper stance. This bar is also great for shorter riders who have trouble reaching the cleat above the bar. DJ
