Product DescriptIon:

There is only one kite which has embodied the true spirit of kiteboarding for the last 8 years for its spot-on performance in such a wide range of conditIons. The Switchblade humbly takes the title of the highest performance kite with the easiest handling. But Cabrinha is not about to rest on their laurels. In 2014 the Switchblade got an upgrade in handling with an all new bridling that provides an even more direct and precise steering. Changes in outline and profile ensure that the 2014 Switchblade delivers power on the low end and precise handling and control on the top end.

Volae 2DR Double Rip Stop material is Cabrinha’s exclusive line of high quality woven fabrics that have been designed specifically for kitesurfing and personally developed to Cabrinha’s exact specificatIons. Cabrinha’s ongoing personal involvement in the development process has raised the quality bar to a place where accuracy and consistency are guaranteed with every kite Cabrinha makes. Cabrinha’s new 2DR Double Rip Stop material is designed to provide a light weight yet durable canopy with extremely low stretch properties. This translates into a kite with the ability to lock in its intended shape and is ultra-reactive to rider input.

The 2DR Double Rip Stop also provides for additIonal protectIon against tears. It is very stable and low stretch in the warp and weft directIons and has controlled elongatIon with good recovery on the bias. This enables the kite shape to be very stable yet still twist freely while turning. The strut material puts the strongest and lowest stretch yarns around the circumference of the leading edge where the forces from inflatIon are greatest.

A Dynamic Arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. It takes on one shape while flying and another shape while in resting mode on the water. The flying shape occurs as soon as the kite gets airborne and the front lines are under tensIon. This is the kite’s intended shape which is optimized for the intended usage. The arc shape is held in place by a simple set of bridling. The dynamic arc shape occurs when the kite is resting on water in relaunch mode. The arc is allowed to open its span which orients the wingtips in a positIon to facilitate a super quick relaunch.

Every Cabrinha kite comes with a simple, adjustable way to choose the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positIons which you can connect to. The middle positIon is the factory recommended positIon. 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 rider.
