Control Bar

The people at Slingshot have taken their direct-drive system and have practically reinvented it for the 2008 Rev. For increased responsiveness and a more positive feel the use of pulleys on the control bar has been done away with. The Rev also features a new center safety system (the controls are placed below the bar; 100% depower).


  • No more pulleys in the control bar.
  • Full depower provided by the center safety system.
  • Adjustable stopper ball.
