Riders want the option of choosing the bar system that best suits their style, needs and budget. In 2013, Airush gives you an Analog Bar with more features. Using the all-new Airush Bar End, the Analog now has two size (45-52) options to fit a larger range of kites, making this an even more affordable option for riders. Featuring the Brain Quick Release system, the 2013 Analog Bar features all of the improvements of the 2013 Smart Bar, yet maintains the same great look and simplicity. Together with 24M flying lines (with 10M and 14M extensions), the Analog Bar complies with IKO and BKSA teaching standards with quick and easy line changes, as well as single-line flag out safety.

New for 2013, the Low Y System allows for single front line flag out system. Providing a safe way of killing the power of your kite. Not only improving safety, the Low Y increases the angle of the front lines, which avoids unnecessary pinching or folding of the kite. By doing so, the wingtips become looser and move more independently, greatly increasing the maneuverability, turning speed and response of the kite.
Added to the 2013 Airush control bar range, the all-new Airush Soft Touch is a durable rubber molding encasing the bar ends. With a softer bar end, the Soft Touch prevents surfboard dings, adds an element of safety and comfort only available on the 2013 Airush control bar.
All new on the 2013 Smartbar 4 and Analog Bar is the redesigned bar end, packed with updates to make your Airush bar even better! The 2013 bar end features Soft Touch – a PU coated casing which provides protection for riders and their boards – as well as the built-in bar adjuster which gives an extra 3.5cm of quick adjustment on both sides. The structure of the 2013 bar end also increases the strength of the entire piece, resulting in a more reliable, durable part.
Loaded with high-tech features, yet simple & intuitive, the Brain quick release system features:
- NEW bungee in the release collar for reseating.
- Centre safety line with spin-able safety leash (suicide with safety connection option).
- Easy to reset push-away release.
- Compact ergonomic design.
- Auto-orienting QR for unhooked riding.
The Analog Bar is best used with kites from 4-14m in the Airush Range. Please check the chart on each kite page to indicate recommended bar length.
