The Slingshot Talon, compatible with the Compstick Gaurdian bar (all sizes).
For dedicated wave riding and hooked-in riding, the standard chicken loop is a clumsy component that creates distance between your core and the bar and limits your throw and depower.
The Talon is a Slingshot-specific component that replaces the chicken loop with a much smaller stainless steel clasp. This bring the bar several inches closer to your waist, which in turn gives you several inches more throw and reach above the bar. Combined with Ride Engine’s sliding rope spreader bar, this setup gives you the ultimate freedom of movement, range of motion and kite control. In addition to the added performance the Talon will provide you with the utmost confidence against unwanted unhooking.

This is the way a kiteboarding shop should be. Staff are super friendly. They take the time to understand your requirements, provide advice and never put any pressure on you to buy anything. There's a huge range of stock and I've been able to demo a great range of kites and boards over the years.
After sales service is the best. Recently I had an issue with a kite I'd bought there which was well out of warranty and they didn't hesitate to inspect, diagnose and repair the issue for me and get me back on the water.
You can’t go wrong buying your kites, boards, foils, and all your gear from Kitepower - and I’ll tell you why. The culture of the business mirrors the passion and dedication of the company’s founder, Steve McCormack. And culture matters. When you purchase from Kitepower you’re purchasing from a team of kiting enthusiasts and experts who will look after you. You’ll be purchasing from a family owned business that will do the right thing and put your safety and comfort first. I fully understand that you might not have an opportunity to meet Steve. And maybe if you're purchasing online you won't step foot inside their Sydney location. But I can tell you that Steve’s dedication to kiters and to the sport of kiting is imprinted into the DNA of Kitepower and the team.
