If you're familiar with Slingshot's Comp Stick bar, you will be pleased to know that for 2014 Slingshot has kept all of the good and upgraded the look and feel of the bar to make the Comp Stick a really solid kite bar.

What we like:
Slingshot has made their already excellent system even better by adding in soft and strong rubber around the chicken loop area. The result is that it makes the whole bar much more comfortable to use. We’re stoked on the new Comp Stick bar – one of the best bars out there just got that much better.
The below the bar depower is easy to adjust and works well but if you're a fan of above the bar depower, there is no option to convert the Comp Stick over. Also, with all of the excellent safety features on the Comp Stick, we're not sure why Slingshot are still marketing their "Oh Sh*t" loops on the steering lines. Our coaches have found that they are actually an excellent tool to help beginners with relaunch but they certainly aren't being used any more in "Oh Sh*t" moments!
Why you want the 2014 Slingshot Comp Stick Control Bar:
We always say that a decent safety system is worth its weight in gold and the Slingshot system has proven itself over the years. No accidental releases and bomb-proof dependability make the Comp Stick a reliable choice.
Today’s riders need to be at the center of control. Building on 4 consecutive World Championships, the new Compstick with Flight Control and our patented Rider Control Center, is the safest, most comprehensive and intuitive control system available on the market today.
We focused on the performance of three individual zones which work together to provide a world class rider-centric control system. This new approach takes into account 3 specific areas, 1. Flight Control - Above the Bar, 2. Compstick - At the Bar, 3. Rider Control Center - Below the Bar.
All three critical areas have been optimized to work in balanced harmony. As a complete system, the 2014 Compstick blends the critical elements of safety, kite control, de-power, and convenience into a rider experience that is tested, trusted, simple, smooth, and intuitive.
