Helix Force Tensioning provides perfect spooling every time, regardless of line tension from the kite.
Roto Re-Ride System:
By manually rotating the Hub, the entire trim unit rotates up to the Roto Bit ensuring a clean front line flag out.
The Roto Hub is the brains of the system, containing the front line re-ride routing and end points. The cap is held in place with an easy to remove pin making inspection and servicing simple and quick.
Locked in and rotating in unison with the Roto Hub, there is no chance for line twists within the trim line tube. This ensures easy front line flag outs and makes line twists easy to sort out on the water.

Push away release effort is unchanged even under extreme loads. Release cuff clearance to the below the bar swivel ensures easy release even if the control bar is pinned up against the trim loop’s Roto Hub.
