Compstick with Sentinel / Above the bar trim

Slingshot is upping the ante in 2016 by adding an entirely new bar setup to its arsenal. The Compstick with Sentinel safety is an above-the-bar system that moves the depower strap from the waist-level position of our below-the-bar setup to the arms-reach location that some riders prefer.

With a sliding trim block that moves the depower cleat up and down the center lines, riders can adjust the height of the depower rope depending on their reach and the amount of throw they want in the bar. The Sentinel uses the same updated control bar as the 2016 Guardian, but comes with a completely reworked chicken loop and safety release system and a molded below the bar Spin-to-Win mechanism that allows riders to untwist center-lines with ease.

Compstick with Guardian / Below the bar trim

Rider simplicity has been at the core of Slingshot’s design principals since the beginning, and we continue that philosophy with the 2016 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.

With continuous improvement in mind, we’ve added several upgrades to 2016 Compstick, including new molded floats and padded bar-ends, a revised EVA grip design, bar-end bungee line-keepers and an improvement in how the in how the floats fold in for storage. These updates compliment the revolutionary features and components that have made the Compstick the trusted bar of choice for hard-charging riders around the world.

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
