V5The SST is the kite of choice for surfers, foilers, direction-al riders, downwind fanatics and general f reeriders who value down the line drift, through the window speed and immediate reaction as their kite’s most important flying characteristics. Think tow-in surfing. The SST delivers the power and performance to get you into position, drifts like a feather as you ride down the line, then reengages with the flick if a wrist. These same qualities make the SST the perfect choice for foiling, when you want full feed-back and responsive steering no matter how powered you are or what direction you’re riding.

PERFORMANCE CHART

SST TECHNICAL FEATURES:

1.NEW 4x4 Canopy Tech

New for 2020, we’ve upgraded our canopy construction with Teijin 4x4 reinforced ripstop material. This is the strongest, stiffest and most durable canopy material on the market. Your kite will last longer, have a higher resale value and feel more solid and stable in the air, especially in gusty wind.

2.Three-strut Compact-C Canopy

Provides the ideal balance between f riendly and responsive handling with stability and smooth, sheet-and-go power delivery. A versatile shape that excels in all conditions.

3.Swept Wingtips

Curved/swept wingtips help the kite roll up on edge for quick and easy relaunch, give the kite a more reactive feel at the bar and reduce pivot radius for tight and fast turning and looping.

4.Condensed IRS Bridle

A minimalist bridle that provides the canopy support and structure in a condensed format that cannot get wrapped around a wingtip in the event the kite gets rolled or tumbled. Our patented IRS bridle incorporates a bungee segment that expands and contracts under load to give the kite added response and stability.

5.Multiple Attachment Points

Different attachment points integrated into the kite allow you to fine-tune handling, power and performance based on your riding style and the conditions of a particular session. Even small changes to these settings can make a big impact on the kite’s overall performance, making this an important tool for getting the most out of your kite every time you ride.

6.Surf-Tough Construction

Reinforced seams and a strategic surf-grid canopy that isolates tears and reduces the chance of catastrophic blowouts in the event your kite goes through the wringer in the surf.

7.Split Strut

A Slingshot innovation that has been borrowed industry wide, Split Strut integrates the kite canopy and struts into one firmly interconnected piece rather than the canopy being sewn over the strut like lesser designs. Split Strut creates a stronger, more stable and more durable canopy, enhances power under heavy load and creates efficiency and rigidity in the overall f rame.

8.One Pump Speed System

A patented Slingshot innovation now used industry-wide, One Pump lets you inflate and deflate your kite through a central valve. If you ever had an older kite with separate strut valves, you’ll know how much of a hassle it was.

9.Bomber Slingshot Construction

We take pride in our reputation for building the most durable kites on the market. Just a few details that go into all our kites include: Kevlar scuff patches, reinforced Dacron trailing edge material, reinforced leading edge seams, diamond leech rear panel layout, canopy Mark Cloth attachment, 4x4 Canopy Tech, surf tough seams and panel layout.

2019 SLINGSHOT COMPSTICK SENTINEL BAR

Sentinel characteristics: 
The 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 above-the-bar trim cleat, 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 2017, 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. 


Sentinel rider profile:


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.

2019 SLINGSHOT COMPSTICK GUARDIAN CONTROL BAR

Trusted, proven rider-simplicity at its finest; no gizmos or gimmicks, just clean design, intuitive function and bombproof construction. 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 is available in two layout options, our patented below-the-bar and the traditional above-the-bar depower.

The Compstick Guardian features our patented below-the-bar system that places the depower within easy reach at waist level and increases the amount of throw above the bar. The trim cleat is incorporated into the safety release box, which further simplifies the look and feel of the setup. Your vision above the bar is clean, with no cleat or depower straps dangling in front of your face. To control the amount of throw, an active stopper can be moved on the fly to stop the bar wherever it is set.

FEATURES

  • Clear, intuitive bomber below-the-bar system
  • Easy to reach depower location
  • Clean visibility above the bar
  • Maximizes throw and depower
