The bar (handlebar) is used for kite steering and kite control with regard to direction and force development. It should always be equipped with an up-to-date safety mechanism appropriate to the system, a quick release on the chickenloop and a safety leash. A separation from the kite should be possible at any time. 

In order to ensure the longevity of the material, it is advisable to remove it after each kite session with a rinse off fresh water and remove sand and salt deposits.
