Ask a question
The PLKB Ibex is an open-cell depower foil and a true back-country specialist that can get you safe up any mountain in any wind condition. The Ibex is super rigid due to the H and D ribs, tension straps across the wing and mesh covered inlets for an even stiffer shape. Ibex's Profile and Arc were designed to be as stable as possible. With the use of D ribs, the Ibex lost much of its bridles to increase performance.
The Ibex is made of high quality 40D Canopy and comes with 27 and 29 cells. The Stop 'n Go, 5-line safety guarantuees safe landings on any location. The Ibex is finished with Liros bridles and Ronstan Orbit Blocks for precise handling.
Redesigned with an all new Quick Release with easy Click Recovery. Many new features such as Ceramic Ball Bearings, Pre-Stretched SK75 lines, 3D grip, Replaceble Loops and with new looks, the Compass bar is all you need as it is compatible with most 4-line depower foil kites.
The inside of the kite is designed especially to maximize dimensional stability as well as reduced need for bridle points. The tension straps running along the bottom skin are a technical detail borrowed from the Twinskin/Arc design, and ensures proper bulging of the bottom skin while keeping the tension in check. The clever D and H Ribs allow for evenly spaced out bridle points and create a very rigid frame.
The Ibex is equipped with a stop and go safety system that guarantees 100% depower. This system is also completely free of tangles so you can relaunch within seconds and with ease. The Stop and go system can also be used to safely land and secure your kite on the ground.
The Ibex’s medium Aspect Ratio and high cell count make for a very slick wing. The Medium Aspect ratio makes the kite highly stable and allows for ease of use in a large wind range.
To make the bridles easy to understand, each Dynacore bridle lines for the A, B, C and brake bridle rows come in a different colour. These different colours offer a clear overview of which line goes where, making it straightforward to set-up the kite or untangle if necessary. Dynacore is a sleeved Dyneema® line, which offers all the benefits of Dyneema® (minimal stretch, direct & responsive steering) but with additional protection.
The Ibex’s speed system is constructed with 2×2 Ronstan® Orbit pulleys, these high quality pulleys weigh only 9 grams and allow for loads up to 250Kg. And since the line goes through the bearing, it will always stay connected even in the rare case the pulley gets damaged.
Special ‘snag-free’ gauze over the air-intakes keeps snow and debris out of the kite. These covered air intakes are also reinforced with webbing sewn into the seams; this result in a very strong construction which helps to keep the inlets in shape.
The new Commander bar has been updated to meet the standard needs of any rider and at an affordable price. The Commander bar is a safe and easy bar with industry standard parts and requires little maintenance. The Quick Release system operates very simple and is easy to recover after it has been released. The Commander snow bar comes in 52cm and is made for all and snow kites. The Commander Snow comes with 22 meter lines, a 5-line safety system, a self-landing handle and extra loops for the groundstake.
The PLKB Compass Bar comes with the The ISO standard 21853 certification. This certificate has been introduced in 2020 to standardise and saftey check all quick releae systems. It shows that the Quick Release has been tested and shall withstand a load of three times the maximum user weight of 120kg equal to 3 600 N, without any breakage and shall still function as intended.
The PLKB Compass bar has been designed to be as easy as possible. You can easily recover the opened Quick Release when laying in the water hanging on to your kite. WIth a simple 'click' you can push the QR Loop back and continue riding.
The PLKB Compass bar comes with a Ceramic ball bearing swivel. This makes twisting the bar super smooth and keeps your lines untwisted. The Ball bearing is open so sand can flushes out easily.
To keep the Safety Line in good condition it should not be twisted. Because the connector is placed behind het ball bearing, it unwinds automatically.
The Trimline and Clamcleat have been developed to create a perfect lock for easy power adjustment. When your kite is depowered. The grab handle can be locked to the side of the clamcleat with the Velcro Lock.
The Compass bar has been made with only the highest quality SK75 lines. These lines can handle up to 425KG and are braid to perfection. Lines with Anti-twist, Minimal Stretch and UV-protected for maximum durability and safety. All lines are black with color coded connectors for kook proof attachment. The Power Lines are split after 8m to prevent your bar from sliding all the way to the kite after pulling the safety.
