KITE TECH Double Ripstop
Developed specifically for kitesurfing. Highly durable and low stretch in warp and weft. Excellent recovery on the bias. All Cabrinha kites are 100% 2DR Double Ripstop.
SPRINT Airlock Valve
Single point rapid inflation of the kite. The large one-way airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. It connects directly to the hose eliminating the need for an adapter. Once inflated you can lock off each strut independently.
Kites are carefully constructed by hand using the most cutting edge technologies and materials available today. The secret to our ultra durable construction lies in the experience gained building the world’s best kites for over a decade.
A dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. Tighter arc in flight for faster turning. Opens wide on the water for faster relaunch.
Power Control Pigtails
Quickly adjust the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions which you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. Create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.
ONS Skeletal Frame All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a skeletal frame foundation. Skeletal frame technology allows usBASALT+CORK+BAMBOO to make a lighter more durable kite by strategically placing the SA N DW I C H C O N ST RU C T I O N reinforcement weight materials into a framework thatSsurrounds lighter canopy A N D W the ICH C O weight N ST R UCTION materials.
QUICK & EASY RESET “Fastest reload on the market!”
QuickLoop’s™ defining feature is its ridiculously simple operation of our 1X security system. Upon activation of 1X’s single line flagging system the kite’s power is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land. The incredibly easy reconnection of the QuickLoop™ harness loop is now the new benchmark in the industry for simplicity. To reconnect, simply push the open end of the loop into place and the latch will automatically engage the loop.
Dropping the QR body back down secures the loop back into place.
QUICKLOOP OPENING LOOP QR
The main QR is a push away release with a catch that holds the QR in the released position until you are ready to reconnect. The main QR meets the AFNOR standards for release loads.
Centralized flagging line connection point Ensures tangle free leash during rotations. Swiveling connection also helps to avoid flagging line twists.
Multi bore tubing protection system Dual chamber PU tubing houses and protects the 1X security line and the depower mainline.
Spinning handle Ultimate control for unwinding front line twists. Indexed top piece allows advanced riders to easily hook back in without removing their hands from the bar.
Push away quick release Industry standard QR system gives full confidence for reliable activation in all conditions.
Removable centralized security pin.
Comprehensive safety New safety feature allows for QR1 activation even with bar fully sheeted in.
DEPOWER ON DEMAND
INDUSTRY LEADING DEPOWER
DEPOWER ON DEMAND PROVIDES MORE DEPOWER THAN ANY OTHER KITE ON THE MARKET
Cabrinha kites introduced Depower on Demand in 2005 along with our revolutionary Crossbow kite. Even today, every Cabrinha kite incorporates Depower on Demand as the default method to precisely control the power of a kite.
KITE IS FULLY DEPOWERED AND IMMEDIATELY BEGINS TO FALL FROM THE SKY
WHEN THE BAR IS IN THIS POSITION THE KITE IS FULLY POWERED
The bar ends can change the length of your bar from its standard mode of 49cm, to the Overdrive mode of 57 cm in seconds. The Overdrive mode will increase the turning speed and performance of any kite large or small.
1X Security System
The 1X is not a depower system, it is a full blown shut down system. The 1X relies on only one line to immediately shut down the power of the kite whether it be on land or water in all wind conditions.
New ergonomic floating bar ends
Recoil keeps your trim adjusters in the same position every time. Even after youâ€™ve depowered your kite, Recoil will return the trim adjusters to the exact same position for easy operation. The spring has been extended and is now closer to the rider on all bars.
We have increased the length of the bar ends to provide protection from line wrapping, and to help in floatation.
The protective PU tube allows us to run the depower mainline and the 1X landing line through the center of the bar without the risk of abrasion or tangling.
We have lowered the front line connection to the CAS in order to provide a more direct and immediate response from your bar input.
Bamboo + Cork Construction
All 2015 surfboards are constructed with our ultra durable Basalt + Cork sandwich layup. The basalt sandwich construction features a super light EPS core and bamboo reinforcement layer on both the top and bottom of the board.
Strategically placed hex shaped pods of EVA cover only the most crucial section of the board to allow easy repositioning of your feet. The hex pads are hollow to reduce weight.
Fiberglass Bamboo Fiberglass Cork Patch Fiberglass Patch CNC Shaped EPS Core
This season we bring you an all new fin design in two constructions
Fiberglass Hex Core RTM fins Premium
Made with a hex core and glass, this fin has a stiffer base and a moderately soft tip. The hex core fin provides excellent drive.
GFN FINS Standard
Our Glass filled nylon (GFN) fins offer a more affordable yet durable fin option. They have a slightly softer flex throughout the entire fin which translates into a dampened ride, especially in choppy waters.
