Spreader bars
Peter Lynn offers you a variety of spreader bars suitable for all forms of traction kiting. Whether you fly your kite on handles or on a bar here you will find a spreader bar that meets your demands. If you fly your kite on a bar we recommend the standard spreader. If you fly your kite on handles we highly recommend using a wheel spreader such as the Challenger, bullet or prodigy wheel spreader.Wheel spreaders are spreader bars fitted with a pulley type wheel on the end where you can easily hook your harness line into/onto. Apart from steering your kite by pulling the bottom ends of the handles the kite can also be steered by pulling the complete handles, similar to two line kite flying. Above this the wheel pulleys lets your harness line run smoothly from side to side greatly reducing wear on the line.

Standard spreader

The standard spreader features a fixed hook to connect your depowerloop or harness line to.

Challenger spreader

If you are looking for a simple spreader that has a wheel to directly hook in the harness line between your handles, the Challenger is the perfect option. It is a basic spreader designed with the quality and durability of a Peter Lynn product. The wheel features a set of sealed bearings to ensure smooth steering at all times.

Bullet spreader

The Bullet wheel spreader ensures more comfort when using your harness, as the front section of the spreader bar can move up and down. This prevents the whole spreader bar from twisting. Besides the reduced wear on your harness, it also prevents the ends (to which the webbing straps are attached) from pushing into your body. As the wheel stays more in a straight line with your harness line, it runs smoother.

Prodigy spreader

When you are looking for the best of the best, the Prodigy wheel spreader is your spreader of choice. A unique combination of optimum functionality, maximum features, high quality and excellent finishing makes this spreader a true work of art. The front section of the Prodigy can move up and down, move left and right and fully rotate. With this spreader bar the comfort on the rider is phenomenal, as the spreader bar back part is not forced in any direction while riding but stays in a fixed position to the body. The Prodigy spreader is aimed at the competition buggy scene. When needing to go upwind in a buggy race, riders make upwind turns with their buggy. While doing this the flying lines are twisted. The lines can easily be untwisted by spinning the handles. The rotating front section of the Prodigy spins easily to undo any twists in the harness line. The Prodigy features a small plastic tag preventing your line from accidentally unhooking during your ride.

Link spreader

Some riders prefer not to use a spreader bar with a wheel but prefer to fly with their harness line running through a pulley and being attached to their harness with a shackle. A spreader bar divides the load over the body ensuring more comfort. The Link spreader bar is the perfect solution for riders preferring a shackle set up, but still wanting to have the comfort of spreader bar.

Please note that attaching yourself to a kite can be extremely dangerous. We recommend using a safety system or snap shackle that functions in any condition, no matter how extreme.

Chestpad

The chestpad provides the rider with a cushion that prevents your spreaderbar from digging into your body and protects clothing from damaging. (Spreaderbars are sold separately)
