2018 Slingshot Compstick Control Bar w/ Guardian

Coming back for the 2018 season, the Slingshot Guardian bar is USA-made to satiate your deepest patriotic desires. The Slingshot bar is designed with simplicity, functionality, and above all, performance in mind. With the Guardian bar, the trim mechanism is located below the bar. This allows for more throw above the bar while maintaining the trim system within reach.

What Slingshot has to say about the 2018 Guardian 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 streamline system that removes eye-level components, placing them within easy reach below the bar and allowing for more throw above the bar. For 2018, we’ve given the Compstick a fresh new visual presence and have carried over improvements tothe floats, grips, redesigned bar ends and safety leash that were implemented in 2016.

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.

If you’re a dedicated surfer/freerider and you aren’t looking to unhook, the new Talon is the perfect addition to your Slingshot bar. The chicken loop is quickly and easily replaced with the Talon system to bring the bar closer to your chest and allow more fluid motion between the bar and your harness system.

    Feels great

    Just got the Slingshot Guardian bar with new for me below the bar trim. The bar has a good size well contoured grip which feel easy and responsive, the whole bar has quality componentry, not stuff that looks like add ons that I have seen in a few bars and the below the bar depower is well done, all round excellent bar for me, it came in 20 m length with three meter extensions provided, again a nice touch :grinning:
