Short answer: Yes
The Core Sensor Bar is delivered in the default setting over the sail cloth covered line. The clam cleat may be moved closer but no more than 12cm.
To adjust the clam cleat, first pull back the rubber end stopper. Finesse the line through the the cleat, slowly moving the cleat towards you. You should still have to stretch to reach the adjuster when you are kiting.
Important: Once you move your cleat, you must make an adjustment to the back lines under the floaters as you have made a change to the front lines (by changing the clam cleat position). Pull back the floaters and you will see how the back lines connect to the bar. You may be able to use the knots provided.
If you change the cleat position, the back lines must be extended by 1/4 of the changed cleat position. For example, if one sets the cleat 12cm upwards (or further away) then the back lines must be extended 3cm. Moving the cleat 12cm down (closer to you) means you must shorten the back lines 3cm. Always remember, when fully powered (bar pulled in) all the lines should be equal in length. When you are done making your change, secure the chickenloop to a post, pull in the bar and measure your lines.
Warning: Do not move the clam cleat more than +/- 12cm.
The Sensor 3 Control Bar is not designed to shorten the depower distance. In order to reach the bar a little better, it is possible to gain a few centimetres by using the normal chicken loop (in contrast to the optionally available longer pro loop) and a suitable harness (e.g. seat harness), so that you can reach the completely depowered bar a little better. Unfortunately, a very strong shortening cannot be achieved by this.
Please note that according to the length of the chickenloop, the appropriate chickenstick must be used on the quickrelease. This is the only way to ensure that the quickrelease can be triggered safely (standard loop & standard chickenstick; pro loop & long chickenstick). The standard chickenloop must not be used together with the optional Wakestyle Leashring.
