Does anyone know if this company is going to release an updated version of the dynabar? Also what is the difference between the dynabar v9 xt and xw versions? Is it any good?

The owner is trying to sell the company, he has a medical issue and needs to retire. We still have stock of the 11" XC (carbon) and we know of no plans for new products at this stage.
Its a great product hundreds sold around Oz and no issues with them.
XW spreader has no option for a fixed centre connection, the XT does, but most people do not want a fixed connection point when they look for a sliding spreader bar option.

That's a bit sad hope he gets better. Thanks for the info.

Forgot to mention we still have 13" XW too, and all spare parts.

I'm basically looking for a sliding spreader bar that also has the option of going a fixed hook, as I do both TT and strapless riding. Don't really want 2 separate harnesses, so looking for a spreader that does both, hopefully swapping easily. Currently looking at ion cbar, mystic stealth and dynabar. Would be interested to hear people's experiences with either.

The Dynabar has the hook on the slider and a fixed hook that bolts in. Probably take a few minutes to go back and forth... but why bother, when you're the hook on the slider?

For jumping and backrolls etc I'd prefer a fixed hook, whereas strapless I'd prefer a slider...

The Mystic stealth bar has a fixed loop of rope in the middle that will give that centered and fixed position but the downside is that you cannot unhook which is mostly not an issue for 90% of kiters.

Dynabar XT has a fixed hook option (or fixed U bolt)

Ion C-Bar comes with a rope slider and a fixed hook, quite easy to swap over.

Ion C-Bar and Mystic Stealth also come with really cool lever locks which make getting in and out of your harness much easier and also eliminates the need to adjust the webbing belts each session.
