Control Bar

The control bar of the Slingshot Fuel takes full advantage of the Profire five-line control system. It features and active stopper ball that you can use to adjust the chicken loop on-the-fly. When sheeted in, the bar pressure is done away with. You can benefit from front-line depower and trim within easy reach if you move the depower and trim below the control bar. Switch from a four-line to a five-line configuration whenever it suits you and makes for a more enjoyable ride.


  • For on-the-fly adjustments use the active stopper ball.
  • The Wave Grenade which you will not find anywhere else since it is the only deployable fifth line out there.
  • Switch from a five-line setup (which offers safety, launch assist and is suited for doing tricks) to a four-line setup (which offers improved handling and is a bit simpler to use).
