Slingshot 2018 Compstick Bar
Our Slingshot Compstick Bar w/ Sentinel system is designed for riders who like the Compstick’s simplistic and rugged design but prefer an above-the-bar location of the depower rope. The Sentinel features an adjustable trim cleat above the bar, a swiveling safety mechanism below the bar and all the other features that have made the Compstick Sentinel the trusted choice for riders around the world, year after year. For 2018, we’ve given the Compstick a fresh new visual presence and have carried over improvements to the floats, grips, redesigned bar ends and safety leash that were implemented in 2017.
You’ll love the Compstick Sentinel if you want ultimate control and confidence, the Compstick’s intuitive and streamlined above-the-bar depower and safety is unrivaled by any other bar on the market.

Slingshot Compstick Bar comes in 17, 20 and 23-inch bar options. The 17-inch bar comes stock with 20 meter lines and is recommended only for small kites (4-7meters). The 23-inch bar comes stock with 27 meter lines and is recommended for larger kites (13-17meters). New for 2018, our universal 20-inch bar, which can be used with any kite we produce, will now come stock with 20-meter lines installed and 3-meter extensions in the box. This gives riders the ability to choose between two different line lengths. For easier launching, faster turning and more responsive handling, the 20-meter lines are ideal, while the extensions will provide added power, low-end range and higher jumping.
High performance, high quality lines are an underrated piece of equipment in kiteboarding. When it comes to safety and durability, we don’t mess around. That is why we use the thickest flying lines in kiteboarding. The industry standard is 500lb test. We use special high-tenacity 800lb test flying lines, manufactured in the USA, exclusively for Slingshot. When your life is literally on the line, don’t settle for less than the best.
