It is 162 cm in length total. The comp used a full length (82.5 cm) LLE and a 79.5 cm ULE.

The 2.1 had a LE just under 57".

Here's the complete spec sheet -- http://www.aviasport.net/catalog/kites/cavaliers/stx21-std-frame.htm (I don't think this link counts as another retailer?)

GWTW sells .23 poltruded tubes as well as external ferrules. Getting a full length spar would probably be more expensive and more difficult to replace if you break it.
