2020 Cabrinha AV8 Kiteboarding Kite



What Cabrinha has to say about the 2020 AV8

The AV8 is designed for riders looking for an exceedingly efficient kite to foil with while also offering the attributes of a boost & hang time machine. The AV8 kite is a highly efficient 5 strut power source that can facilitate an incredibly high VMG (Velocity Made Good). Its lean profiles and optimized AR deliver the highest level of performance in a light weight inflatable structure.

The AV8 flies upwind with speed and an incredibly rigid frame. When riding off the wind, the AV8’s power delivery is full and stable. The AV8's flat arc shape makes it ideal for huge lofty jumps combined with silky smooth landings.

Design Profile - 5 Strut, hybrid light weight efficient design, fast aerodynamic profile 

Technology

Pure Arc Segments

Increased Leading Edge segments provide a smooth, high definition and aerodynamic arc.

High Tenacity Dacron

Our all new Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp oriented using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.

Pure Profile Panels

The strategically placed panels provide ultimate control over the aerodynamic profiles in the kite. Smooth and stable profile entry. Improved overall kite efficiency, performance, and range. Faster flying through the sky giving you a broader range of performance. 

Skeletal Frame

Provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in flight. The stable frame drives the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation and has excellent overall de-power. The inflated leading edge introduces the laminar flow of air across the kite's Pure Profile Panels, for a quick recovery if stalled and prevents the kite folding on itself. The inflatable structure reduces the amount of bridling required for stability. It also provides safety by providing some flotation in the water and enables an easy re-launch.

Volae Materials

Our exclusive line of high-quality woven fabric has been designed specifically for kitesurfing. The Volae materials are made with accuracy and consistency, and are guaranteed for every kite we make. Our 2DR Double Ripstop material is designed to provide a lightweight, yet durable, canopy with extremely low stretch properties.  This translates into a kite with the ability to lock in its intended shape, while remaining ultra-reactive to rider input.

1X Security

Upon activation of 1X's single line flagging system the power of a kite is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land.

Sprint System W/ Airlock

The Sprint inflation systems is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite inflated and deflated quickly. The enlarged Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump requires no special adapters. Once inflated, you can lock off each strut independently to keep your kite's rigid frame, and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite. when the session is over, the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valves's large dump feature.

Dynamic Arc

Dynamic arc allows the kites to have two distinct arc shapes. The arc of the kite takes on one shape while flying and another shape while in resting mode on the water.  While resting on the water the arc opens up slightly to facilitate an easier relaunch. 

Power Control

Every Cabrinha kite comes with a simple, user adjustable way to choose the power level of the kite.  Each rear line "pig tail" connector has three power positions you can connect to.  The middle position is the factory recommended position.  However, the user can choose to create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the the rider.
