How well does it work? Does slider rope wear quickly? Unintended "unclicks" while riding?

Thanks,
Eric

Hey Eric,
We sell them and they were very popular in 2019. The rope lasts a long time and is easy to tighten or replace. However the new Stealth bar will be out in a month and is a serious entry into the slider bar market. The best I've seen. Worth waiting for.

Thank you for sharing , that looks like a slick design. I am curious how the Mystic rope attaches to the spreader bar and is the rope easily replaced?

I'm out of touch, maybe this is silly or not. But would the Stealth fit onto a Ride Engine waist harness?

Yes, Ride Engine is compatible with Mystic Stealth bars. Not the old Ride Engines, just the newer ones with the webbing straps

Does look promising. The wear I am getting now on my current bar is where the rope comes through the bar, not where the chickenloop slides. I am getting about 10 sessions per rope.

I was playing with a few in the shop this week and there was one, I can't remember which brand, but it seemed like the rope wasn't going to be replaceable. Surely I'm wrong but I couldn't figure it out for the life of me.

One did have a clever little cleat one one side though. Looked like a solution for the rope being loose.

This looks pretty cool. Is there a video of how it latches somewhere?

Eric. What year RE harness do you have? My 2016-17 had a burr in that stainless hole where the Amsteel passes through. I also would get 10 session. Ride Engine will replace no-charge.

Are the ropes replaceable on the Mystic Stealth bar?
