I have a 2013 FreeRide bar that I use with my 12m Razor.  (Excellent kite BTW).  I’ve used it 3 times so far.  I’m losing all the skin on my fingers when using the bar.  I have kited for over 6 years and use other manufacturers’ bars without having this problem.  Is there some sort of new neoprene or glue that is being used on the 2013 bar that is hard on the skin of your hands?  It’s really odd.  I have almost no fingerprints at this point.  It’s only occurring where my hands/fingers contact the bar.
