2018 Slingshot Compstick Guardian Kite Control Bar

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 streamlined system that removes eye-level components, placing them within easy reach below the bar and allowing for more throw above the bar. 

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 a 500lb test.  We use special high-tenacity 800lb test flying lines, manufactured in the USA, exclusively for Slingshot.  When your life is on the line, don't settle for less than the best.

Why you'll love the Compstick Guardian 

If you want ultimate control and confidence, the Compstick's intuitive and streamlines below-the-bar depower and safety is unrivaled by any other bar on the market. 

Product Features

  • Easy Reach Depower: Below the bar, set up places the depower rope close to the rider's core for easy access. 
  • Guardian Safety System:  Simple and reliable safety mechanism releases with a quick grasp and pushes away, and it resets just as easily. 
  • Auto-Spin Swivel:  Rotating component untwists center lines and helps ensure proper safety function at all times. 
  • Active Stopper Ball:  On-the-fly adjustment piece that allows rider to set the amount of throw. 
  • Rider Simplicity:  Chicken loop, safety release, and depower cleat integrated into one user-friendly component, eliminating clutter on other parts of the bar.
  • Bungee Line-Keepers:  The bungee line-keepers/straps help keep lines tidy and secure when storing and transporting gear. 
  • Redesigned Molded Floats:  In addition to keeping the bar floating and protecting the rider from injury, the updated design is slim and sleek. 
  • Improves Float Storage:  Re-engineered to fold easily for storing.
  • Non-Slip EVA Grip:  Texturing coupled with an ergonomic design to reduce hand fatigue in all conditions.
  • Dual oh-shit Handles: Signature redundant, Slingshot safety.
  • Precision cut 800lb Flying lines:  800lb precision-cut flying lines.  Our lines are 60% stronger than the 500lb.  Flying lines the competition uses.
