The UniBar – 3rdGen by Blade
It’s been four years since the 2nd generation of our UniBar had set a new standard for control bars. What have we done in those four years? We listened. We observed. We took notes. We applied. And now we’re ready to present you with the most thrilling bar you have ever experienced. With the new UniBar you get the lightest bar in the market, at a ridiculous 318 grams. Pretty amazing when you think about all the exciting features it contains, such as the automatic line de-twister, a below the bar swivel and….
Forget about manually spinning the front line swivel after looping your kite. From now on all you need to do is pull in the bar and your front lines will automatically unravel. Below the Bar Swivel Having the swivel below the bar gives the UniBar better functionality, allowing the automatic line detwister to operate flawlessly, making sure your lines are correctly aligned 100% of the time.
Lightest Bar in the Market
Creating a bar that is both light and strong is such an integral part of the bar’s performance. That’s why we made our bar even lighter with a CNC aluminum center insert, totaling at a weight of 318g, the lightest bar with integrated floats in the market.
Not all kite riders were made the same. Some have long arms, some short. Some like waves, some freestyle. That’s why we made a point of designing an adjustable bar throw so you can choose the length that suits you. Not only that, we also added a magnet so that the depower strap does not dangle and will always stay in place.
Some bars ignore the physics of the human body. We chose to comply, setting the UniBar at an angle that aligns with the stance of your arms as you ride. Front-to-Back Dual Grip Layer We want our riders to be free of any limitations, so we added custom-made layer of bottom grip enhancers to make it extra comfortable throughout the ride.
Molded Bar Ends
With a bar that sets the tone for others, everything has to be perfect. That’s why the new UniBar incorporates an exclusively designed molded foam bar end that integrates with the floaters, giving the bar a smooth and comfortable feeling.
19+4m Teufelberger FL Line Set
The UniBar is equipped with the highest quality of lines available on the market – the TeufelbergerFL series which is manufactured in Austria. All bars come with adjustable 19m + 4m lines so you can choose to ride with 19m or 23m settings.
QROne key to the UniBar’s success is having the safest quick release in the industry. With 100% activation rate and less than 5kg pull at a load of over 200kgs, it’s no surprise our own design is being implemented by 5 other brands on the market.
Suicide Ring & Safety Line Swivel
The new UniBar fully supports both standard and suicide modes, activating the safety mechanism on either mode. The suicide ring is connected to a dedicated swivel that makes sure it does not dangle on endless rotations and loops.
Shinn Ronson Chromatic
All new (and yet surprisingly familar) the Ronson Chromatic is the latest version of this popular and test winning model, designed to fulfil the desires of the dynamic kiteboarder not willing to be limited by conditions or riding style.
We’ve utilised and developed the technological lessons learnt from the development of the Slicer Split TT to bring you a board that seamlessly bridges the gap between freestyle and freeride. The all new dual-track base channels add rail grip and radically increase efficiency achieving the seemingly impossible combination of better upwind and lightwind performance and improved top end grip at the same time.
Built to perform in marginal and radical conditions alike, the new Ronson Chromatic will take your riding to new levels when-ever, where-ever and what-ever.

Shinn Bronq Chromatic
All new but clearly displaying it’s lineage – the Bronq Chromatic is much more than just an incremental change, it’s a giant step forwards in efficiency and comfort and was described by designer Mark Shinn as “without doubt my favourite of all the TT boards I have ever tested”.
Building on the lessons learnt through the development of the Slicer Split TT we combined the Double Step tip channels with the all new Dual-Track base to create an unrestricted water flow throughout the board’s length. Supremely fast to “unstick” in light winds and knife like upwind ability don’t detract from what is undoubtably the plushest and most engaging ride in the whole Chromatic range.
With the ability to adapt to your riding, mood or simply the conditions on hand the new Bronq Chromatic redefines our own high standards for lightweight performance, comfort and control.

Shinn Superking Chromatic
The Superking range is dedicated to performing in lighter winds and for heavier riders. Not every spot is deep enough to foil nor every rider willing to loose time on the water to learning again. Maximum fun in minimum winds with a board that won’t hold you back if the wind increases a few knots.
TT riding is not a crime, the Superking is unashamedly directed towards those previously frustrating days where your regular freestyle model just won’t come to life. Using an adaptation of our Split Concave base, this range provides for exceptionally early planning, a smooth and comfortable upwind ride all combined with a performance that will both surprise and delight. By combining a naturally efficient rocker with bilateral flex tips the Superking provides carving, edging and POP normally associated with a higher wind range dedicated design.
More kiteboarding is better than less kiteboarding – we don’t all have the luxury of perfect conditions but the Superking guarantees on-the-water action that won’t have you rushing back to the beach if the wind increases a few knots.

A moderately wide and curvy outline with a thruster fin set.
Riders who like to mix rail to rail surfing with aerial trickery.
The Spade is our ultra-versatile performance surfboard. It starts with a slightly wider and curvier outline that lends itself to tight turns in the pocket of any sized wave. The three fin configuration promotes rail to rail, and a top to bottom surfing. The wide outline also makes this board incredibly lively under your feet allowing you to generate speed even in onshore surf. The Spade will make your aerial maneuvers look pro with its generous amount of pop. The Step Rail creates our signature concave deck which is perfect for strapless trick riding.
Includes three (3) RTM hybrid bamboo/soric fins, rear deck pad (NOTE: front pad sold separately)
• Great for aerial maneuvers
• Promotes top to bottom surfing
• Turns tight in the pocket
• Wide and curvy outline

Shinn Shinnster Chromatic
Durable, Strapless, Freeride
What is the Shinnster? It’s not a wave board and it’s not a skimboard.. the Shinnster is a kiteboard designed for strapless riding. Flat water skate style, small onshore wave playing, no fins, 53mm fins, 80mm fins…. There are no rules, grab it and do whatever comes to mind.
Maintaining the rocker and flex pattern from the original the Shinnster Chromatic is compact and “trickable” without influencing the critical rail length needed to achieve the powerful upwind and drive it’s famous for. Our Jet Stream tail channels increase the tail grip whilst using smaller fins to provide a better balance of sliding skate style moves and a more aggressive aerial style. Supplied with 53mm fins and 3D shaped deck pad add 80mm fins to tune your ride how you like it.
The Shinnster Chromatic is not only fun to ride but surprisingly easy to get the best out of too. Don’t confuse this board with other similar looking concepts out there, this is a high performance ride that works in a huge array of conditions
