The 2018 Compstick with Slingshot’s Guardian Safety system is a great choice for the rider who has shorter arms or simply wants less clutter in his/her line of sight. Integrated into the chicken loop release, the trip cleat is conveniently close to the rider at all times.
WHAT SLINGSHOT SAYS:
• Slingshot’s patented below-the bar trim setup
• Simple, clutter-free design: ride hard, ride with confidence
• Features the strongest and longest lasting lines available
• Huge depower, maximum throw, easy-reach depower
• Low-profile, reliable, easy-reset safety release system
Slingshot riders trust the Compstick Guardian setup for its simplistic design, bomber construction and easy-access below-the-bar depower system. With the Guardian, the trim cleat is located just above the chicken loop and is integrated into the safety release mechanism. The result is a streamline system that removes eye-level components, placing them within easy reach below the bar and allowing for more throw above the bar.
Guardian rider profile:
You’ll love the Compstick Guardian if you want 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.
17″ bar x 20m lines
20″ bar x 20m lines with 3m extensions
23″ bar x 27m lines
The 2018 Compstick 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 (usually 4-7meters). The 23-inch bar comes stock with 27 meter lines and is recommended for larger kites (usually 13-17meters). Our universal 20-inch bar, which can be used with any kite we produce, will now come 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.
