Improved and ready for action, theSlingshot Compstick Control Bar keeps today's riders where they need to be, at the center of control. Building on 4 consecutive World Championships, the updated Compstick with Flight Control and Slingshot's patented Rider Control Center, is the safest, most comprehensive and intuitive control system available on the market today. Focused on the performance of three individual zones which work together to provide a world class rider-centric control system.
This new approach takes into account 3 specific areas, 1. Flight Control - Above the Bar, 2. Compstick - At the Bar, 3. Rider Control Center - Below the Bar. All three critical areas have been optimized to work in balanced harmony. As a complete system, the Compstick blends the critical elements of safety, kite control, de-power, and convenience into a rider experience that is tested, trusted, simple, smooth, and intuitive. Bar is universally compatible with major brands and includes Guardian Safety feature (no Guardian Safety on the 17")
Ideal for all levels and all rider ability types who are focused on the highest safety standards, maximum convenience, performance and durability. If you are looking for an uncluttered system with easy set-up and user friendly rigging, this is the bar for you.
