ability to depower the kite more effectively with a bar).
The general "convention" for water kiting is to use a bar.
- I've never been happy with a bar in light wind while kitesurfing
(too slow to turn the kite).
So bars or handles should not be a function of the sport, it's more a

use handles in less than 10 knots (where more precise control of the
kite is more important)
