Just curious what the advantages of the freestyle bar are with the Razor….and what size bar does Ocean Rodeo
recommend for the 10m Razor? Thanks

It depend on your preference . Me I like the below bar uncluttered riding. Others like prefer to see the Depower. The stopper makes it so easy to set what you want.
I use a 48/ 55 for all Razors and adjust the rear pig tails to suit

10ms ship, by default with a large bar…if you are into freestyle or wake style handle passes you might want a smaller bar though to prevent unintended bar input.

The Freestyle bar is a freestyle specific bar designed for riders who wish to stay powered and who may also want to leash in the suicide set-up for handle passes (not recommended, in general). The Freeride bar offers a much larger sheeting range (as does the Fusion bar) and is likely your best bet if you are not focused on park / wake / freestyle riding.

If the larger bar is normally shipped with the 10, is the 48 setting or 55 setting more appropriate? I have always preferred
a smaller bar so I’m hoping the 49cm setting with the small bar would work.

Just my opinion, but the small bar is the perfect fit for the 10m.  I have never used the inner setting on any dual length bar mostly cause I’m lazy. but also cause I seldom want to slow down a kite.  Maybe I’ll try it sometime with the 6m.

49cm is a great bar.

freestyle. 

Can appreciate the clean look of the below bar set up, but prefer using the conventional trim strap.

If you want to unhook than for sure the freestyle bar. Strap is so much better for the quick adjustment and I am really glad OR finally has this system available again. I also have guys using freeride bars on their Razors. Mainly waveriders that want extra sheeting range.

what’s the difference between freeride bar and fusion bar?

I’m going to buy a Rise 15LW and it ships with the freeride bar. Does it work with the fusion bar and would that be a good choice?
