Best chicken loop replacement?

Should I stay with my current brand (Epic kites & bar) which would most likely need international shipping or is there something better and more local I should be looking at?

Do you mean the whole bar or just chicken loop?

Hi Freddofrog,

Do you want to change just the PU chicken loop part or the whole quick release with chicken loop system ?

There is the question of compatibility across brands and products can change depending on the year/model of your bar.

Looking at the new Epic bars setup, I believe you could upgrade it with the newer Airush IQR system (new ISO standard compliant quick release)

Have a look at the video below. If you think it can fit, send me a PM and we can get you that spare part locally ( )

Yeah the Airush Qr is a good setup - you will need the blue depower line as well, also a bit of adjustment tuning your lines after... Christian may be able to do it for you ?
I would buy another 2nd hand bar - yours is gettin old..
