Product Description:

Cabrinha's eternal quest for a simpler solution to control, handling and security, has produced their cleanest and most feature rich control system to date. The Overdrive 1X control and security system is a compact joystick with heaps of built in features.

Overdrive™ provides more performance in seconds by adjusting a full 8 cm in length in seconds. Unlike other bars on the market, the Overdrive bar starts with a shorter bar length and can expand to the larger length if you wish. There is no reason to carry around all that extra bar if you prefer to ride on the standard setting. The 49cm standard bar setting is great for smaller kites, or if you would like the kite to be less reactive. By easily switching the bar into Overdrive™ mode the length changes a full 8cm to 57cm and immediately increases the turning speed of any kite large or small. Additionally, adjustment can be made on the water, if desired. EVA bar ends provide flotation for the entire control system.

Experience direct steering, more responsive, faster turning with Low V. Cabrinha has lowered the front line connection to the CAS in order to provide a more direct and immediate response from your bar input. Equal forces from all four control lines allow a natural and relaxed position for the arc shape to open. This more natural, or less altered angle, makes both sheeting and steering more responsive. As you steer the kite you apply tension to the rear corner of the kite in the direction you want to turn. As this happens there is another force applied to the opposite front control line as the kite initiates the turn. With a low “V” set up, the force to the opposite front control line is instantaneous and direct where, with a high “V” set up there is a slight delay. Greater tension is applied to alternate lines creating greater twist in the kite. More twist means faster turning and increased response.

The spring loaded Recoil adjustment always keeps your trim adjusters within reach. When you push your bar to achieve depower, the Recoil spring compresses. When the bar is returned to its normal riding position, Recoil is automatically reset, returning the trim adjusters to their original position.

Complete shut down in all conditions maximizes security. The 1X Bridle brings an upgrade in kite steering an control. The new system uses less moving points on the bridling which translates into direct input from rider to kite and incredibly precise steering.
