You are the driver, this is your steering wheel. Your bar should not come between you and your kite, it should feel like an extension of your arms. This is the Compstick. Equipped with the strongest flying lines in the industry (800lb test inside lines, 500lb test outside lines), easy release/reset safety systems and a clean, comfortable interface, it instills confidence and lets you forget about your bar and ride like you’re connected directly to the kite.

The Compstick Sentinel 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.
Slingshot kite lines:
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 on the line, don’t settle for less than the best.
