2018 Slingshot Compstick Sentinel Control Bar
2018 Slingshot Compstick Control Bar w/ Sentinel
Coming back for the 2018 season, the Slingshot Sentinel bar is USA-made to satiate your deepest patriotic desires. Designed for simplicity, functionality, and performance, Slingshot caters to riders who are looking to ride hard and ride often. With great depower capability and an easy-to-use safety release system, the compstick has been a kiter favorite for years now. The Sentinel utilizes an above-the-bar trim system, a departure from previous years’ Compsticks. This has been well received by the Slingshot kiting community, as many riders have long been waiting for a trim system that they deem more accessible than the below-the-bar version.
What Slingshot has to say about the 2018 Sentinel Control Bar
Our 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 2016.
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.
