Rider simplicity has been at the core of Slingshot’s design principals since the beginning, and we continue that philosophy with the Compstick and Guardian safety system. Built for ultimate control and confidence, the Compstick’s intuitive and streamlined below-the-bar depower and safety is unrivaled by any other bar on the market.
The Compstick is offered in the universal 20” bar with 23 meter lines, which can be used with any kite size in our lineup. For more specialized riders, we also offer a 17” bar with 20 meter lines for smaller kites and a 23” bar with 27 meter lines for larger kite. Slingshot’s internal-bungee kite leash has also been upgraded in 2016 with a shorter overall length and sturdier molded-metal carabiner clips for added strength.
* Our full range of kites can be flown on our 20” Compstick bar. If you would like a specialty bar we recommend that for kite sizes 8m and smaller a 17” bar, for kites 14m and larger a 23” bar
