Waroo 07 bridle.

Quick adjustment allowing you to tune your kite.

you can flip the rear bridle around so that the rear-top pulley becomes the front-top pulley.

doing this will increase bar pressure but give faster turning speed.

just flip the rear bridle front to back, only takes a minute a side and well worth trying.

I have a 7m 07 Waroo and I have been testing out this mod for a few weeks now. Heres my take based on pure feel on with no regard for theory.

Kites turns a lot faster. Too fast for my liking (I am on 20m lines). The power seemed to very on off. The depower range seemed to increase though. The kite definitely flogs a lot more which indicates that there is more travel of the leach when sheeting out. The steering bar psi is less but the sheeting bar psi is more.

Today I had a session in 25-30 knts of gusty wind and a 3ft wave. I was freestyle and wave riding. I started the session with the mod and again experienced all I have mentioned above. I then changed to the original setup. This is definitely better as far as I am concerned. Power delivery was smooth and consistent. The kite was marginally slower but still very quick. The kite seemed to ride thru the gusts smoothly whereas before it was very on off.

In my opinion, stay with the original setup for a 7m waroo regardless of whether you wave ride or freestyle.

that mirrors what we found when initially testing the set-up.

i did this to my 13m and what a difference!! kite is nicer to the feel, kite loops seem a little bit more intence aswell, u can definitly notice the bar pressure and turning speed changes and it feels a little more low end grunty so im happy with mods, deffinitly try it on big kites, wish ther was something for the 06 waroo 9m:(

G_Day sq ,
Please give me your opinon , regarding the 07, 7m waroo, with the standard
2 pulley rear bridle set , i found the bar pressure way too light ,not much
feed back , turning speed "too fast" & limited depower compared to my 9m/11/13m pro's which i love, they are awesome!

I want/need to increase bar pressure & reduce turning speed 07 , 7m waroo to tame/slow down the speed of the kite in strong wind ?

Sould i try a direct rear bridle ? or ?
& thanks Rob for your opinon , thats helps , i tryed/ tested all rear bridle set ups on all my pro's & have it sorted .

a direct rear bridle will give you more feedback, but the waroo and the pros are very different in terms of bar pressure distribution .

if you wnat it feel more like the pro, put a direct rear bridle on.

My "used" 13m Waroo Pro only came with the fixed rear bridle. Currently I'm using the 13m with the 45cm '06 bar I use on my other smaller kites, and the 13m is way to slow. Where can I get the rear bridles that support the pullies? All I see on the parts page is "07 Waroo Pro Back Bridle (no pulleys)"

the Pros were delivered with direct back bridles as they are faster than the pulley bridles on the Pro.


It isn't pulleys that you need for thre 13m Pro, it's a 55cm bar..

Can you do the same trick with 07 Bularoo? They do not have pulleys on back lines. Can you just add pulleys and adjust them?
