2023 Cabrinha 03 Contra Kite

PERFORMANCE LIGHT WIND / FREESTYLE

Available Sizes : 13m, 15m, 17m

20 years ago, the Contra took light wind riding to a new level. It has graced the quivers of many kiters throughout the past two decades acting either as their all-round everyday kite, or as the ultimate session saver.
This year sees the largest evolution to the Contra legacy.
Through the use of HTD Lite and the Lite Frame technology we have been able to reduce the weight of the kite by 15%, allowing it to perform even better in those threshold winds.
The three-strut design makes this kite the go to for light wind twin tip riding, and also makes it the best jumping light wind kite we have ever developed.

Key Features

EFFORTLESS RELAUNCH

Even in the lightest of wind conditions the Contra gives you the confidence to try tricks knowing any mishaps won't mean a swim in.

REFINED LOWEND

The Contra specializes in incredible upwind performance even in minimal wind speeds. Dubbed the 'Session Saver’ the Contra has become synonymous with light wind riding and a favorite with many who never want to miss a day of kitesurfing.

AGILE STEERING

Big kite, small kite feeling, thanks to the Contra's agile and responsive steering and increased power delivery.

ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE

No matter what your craft or discipline, the Contra’s performance features make it a standard kite in every quiver, not only to maximise water time but to thrive and progress.

LIGHT WIND OPTIMIzATION

Designed with the main focus to be ridden in the threshold winds where most kites can't perform.

PARK AND RIDE STABILITY

Efficient control and power allows the rider to concentrate on their riding, not the kite.

HTD LITE

The next evolutionary jump in inflatable structures is HTD Lite.  We took the superior benefits of the proven HTD material to which have superior elongation control and combined it with a superior reflex bias recovery and lighter weight construction to elevate the response characteristics and range of the kite.

SPRINT 3.0

The new Sprint 3.0 inflation system increases air flow from leading edge to the strut. The new straight and angled valves allow for no kinking of the inflation tube. It's secure fit design also allows for easy maintenance.

ADVANCED STRUT TECHNOLOGY

Refined airfoil shape for improved air flow and efficiency.
