This is going to be new to me as I will have to fly with it attached to the leash (attaches to my Ozone SB harness) otherwise you release the safety on the megatron chicken loop and it will be bye-bye kite!
|with leash attached|
I think I am also going to use the safety leash on my Ozone Manta- just to provide consistency and get used to flying with a leash...
"The Contact-Snow Control System has been simplified and re-designed offering the latest in safety features, a clean control bar design and an easy-to-use trimming system. The system exceeds all Kitesurf/Snowkiting loading and release EU NORM safety standards.
Megatron Quick Release – The Contact-Snow system features Ozone’s proven Megatron quick release safety with total flag out of the kite. Easy re-assembly saves time and gets you back up and riding faster. Note: a leash must be connected to the control system.
Two Safety Modes – The new Contact-Snow Control System offers riders a choice of safety modes; the recommended Flag Out safety, or the optional Brake Handle safety.
- The recommended Flag Out safety offers 100% flag out in all situations by releasing the Megatron or letting go of the bar when un-hooked.
- The Brake Handle safety method attaches the safety leash to the hand brake line that connects to the back leaders, when Megatron is released or the bar is let go the kite stalls down to the ground.
Low Friction Centre Piece – The control bar features a low friction aluminum centre piece designed to reduce trim line wear.
Auto Positioning Chicken Loop – Designed in conjunction with the bar centre piece, the Megatron spinning handle allows chicken loop auto positioning, offering easy unhooked riding and hooking back in.
Simplified Trim System & Longer Foam Floats – The new trim system has been simplified by removing the Re-ride and Cross lines. New longer foam floats provide better protection from the lines.
PU Covered trim line & Ronstan Orbit Pulley – The tough PU covered trim significantly reduces wear when sheeting in and out, whilst the smooth running Ronstan Orbit Pulley also prevents trim line wear.
Magnetic trim handle system – Magnetic trim handle connects to magnetic neoprene sock covering the clam cleat to reduce tangles when trimmer is de-powered.
The Contact-Snow Control System bar sizes come in 45cm, 50cm and 55cm. The larger size PU chicken loop (accessory sold separately) is perfect for riders with longer arms or for riders wanting even easier hooking in & out."
