MATERIALs

Our canopy material is First fully dipped in stabilizing resins and then additionally coated with a special formula providing stable, yet durable finish. Maintaining a very low bias elongation and high tear strength for maximum kite performance you can feel. Super stable, yet strong enough to withstand the elements of nature and daily abuse.

KITE Skeletal Frame

All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. Skeletal frame technology allows us to make a lighter more durable kite by strategically placing the reinforcement weight materials into a framework that surrounds the lighter weight canopy materials.

the canopy profile is shaped with a light weight yet highly durable polyester woven material.

NEW KITE pump

Our new sprint pump and our all new airlock valve closes the loop on our sprint single point inflation system. the pump’s diaphragm has been improved For smoother pumping action and increased longevity. the sprint pump’s hose connection now mates perfectly with our all new exclusive airlock two way valve without the need For an adapter.

SINGLE POINT RAPID INFLATION

line manager airlock

The all new Airlock improves on the industry’s best inflation / deflation valve. The new Airlock completes our Sprint single point inflation system. The new one way valve allows for a higher volume of air to pass through it. Airlock 2 has a new coaxial type of hose attachment which now does not require an adapter to work with our new Sprint pump. Just attach the hose directly to the valve with a quick quarter turn.

This year we have included a simple to use line management tool. Each time you wind your lines onto the control bar you can attach the ends of the lines to the line manager in sequence. That way, when its time to reattach your lines they will be free of tangles. Setting up your lines has never been easier.

bridle guides

sprint clamps

The Sprint clamps which restrict the flow of air out of the struts have been improved for a more positive closure.

We have reduced the size and weight of the stainless steel bridle guide.


quicklink

control system with ids

You will not find a more ergonomic control system, with more built in features than the QuickLink Control System with IDS. QuickLink is simply the cleanest control device on the market today. QuickLink is the first control system on the market to internalize all of the lines, swivels, and quick releases so that the rider has an uncluttered and seamless device to control the kite. With over 14 important functions thoughtfully integrated into the control system, QuickLink works with your body’s intuitive movements for easy and efficient operation.The QuickLink control system utilizes our exclusive IDS security system with three stages of depower.

One of the features allowing us to internalize everything is the dual chamber PU tubing. The protective PU tube allows us to run the depower mainline and the IDS landing line through the center of the bar without the risk of abrasion or tangling.

QUICK RELEASE

INTERNAL SWIVEL

QuickLink boasts an internal swivel which allows the rider to manually unspin any twists in their lines. The IDS landing line and depower main line spin in unison eliminating the possibility of tangling.

removable security pin

The centrally located security pin is easily removable for those who would like to ride unhooked. The center location of the pin also serves to reduce foul hooking.

The line winders have been lowered yet again to be directly in line with the bar itself. This keeps the ends from bending while winding your lines. The result is a more positive line hold.

The main QR has been improved in 2013 to allow for a simple and easy re-connection on land or water. To reconnect, simply push the QR up until it catches on the hook, Insert the pin through the tower and cover the pin with the QR.

SECONDARY QR

located below the main QR the secondary qr allows the rider to completely disconnect from their kite if the situation calls for it. As a safety precaution, we’ve designed it so that the secondary QR can’t be activated until after the main QR is activated first.

floating bar ends

The EVA ends are buoyant enough to float the entire control system with lines attached thus making the bulky floats on the leader lines unnecessary. The tips have flex grooves which aid in the bending of the tips while winding your lines onto the bar or while steering your kite.

Spinning Leash

The leash can rotate freely around the harness loop.

One of QuickLink’s defining features is our Recoil trim adjuster. Recoil keeps your trim adjusters in the same position every time. Even after you’ve depowered your kite, Recoil will return the trim adjusters to the exact same position for easy operation. In 2013 we have modified the trim adjustment handles to deliver a more positive grip.

NEW FLYING LINES

In 2013 we have improved the finish of our flying lines in order to reduce stretch. The improved finish also makes the separation of your lines effortless.
