Default Cabrinha 02 Gear Is Out Now!

Cabrinha News:

Cabrinha 02 now live

02 Cabrinha Switchblade Kite

No kite has done more in the sport of kitesurfing than the Switchblade. World Titles, World Records, Podium topping, all on a stock production kite that has also brought so many people not only into the sport, but given the perfect platform to evolve, improve and push their own boundaries of what they thought possible.

For 02 we have given the Switchblade a further performance boost. The redesigned and rebalanced bridle gives the option to not only increase the turning speed, but also lighten up the feel of the kite. A lighter faster kite not only extends the reach of this amazing product to different riders, but also allows for faster steering and control for jumping. The five strut stable frame of the Switchblade really comes into its own in the higher wind ranges. Here the legendary boost and hangtime of the Switchblade really shines.

Available in sizes 5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12/14m

02 Cabrinha Contra Kite

In 2003 a kite was launched to help people maximize their time on the water. The name became synonymous with the light wind riding, and has since become a staple in many kiters quivers.

The Contra 3 Strut continues this legacy and provides the rider with the ultimate blend of light wind power and agility to maximize time on the water in threshold winds.

Its supported 3 strut frame allows to not only drive forward when using more traditional selection of kiteboards, but it also provides a stable canopy and an increased high end range.

02 Cabrinha Contra 1 Strut Kite

The Contra 1 Strut has quickly garnered a reputation as one of the best kites for lightwind freeriding and has proven a versatile addition to any kite quiver.

With its single strut design, this light and nimble kite allows the use of much smaller sizes to maximize foilboardings true potential. Featherweight control and amazing drift characteristics allow for low angles of attack while on foil, and the rear line tension increases steering impulse even when depowered.

Cabrinha Mantis V2

The Mantis V2 has made large strides forward, building on the already popular Mantis wing platform. The sizing has been refined for better flow throughout the range with a narrower wingspan in the large sizes and more progressive power in the small sizes. The wingtip takes on a more square form to deflect well off the water while it has a deeper profile for smoother power delivery and increased dihedral and twist for stability. The canopy tension has been refined for a tight responsive feel with minimal flutter which is further enhanced by strategically placed EVA battens. The leading edge diameter has been further refined, culminating in an ultra-rigid frame.

The Mantis V2 showcases Cabrinha?s forward driving wing program and puts the ultimate in technology and efficiency into your hands to maximise water time and performance.

Available in window / no window & sizes: 2/2.5/3/3.5/4/4.5/5/6/7m
