Product Description

2018 Cabrinha Switchblade All around kiteboarding and kitesurfing kite.  20% off while supply lasts.  For a rider who wants unrivaled predictability, unmatched versatility and uncompromising high end performance and quality. Whether you’re boosting big air, throwing down technical tricks, or simply out for a fun session on your own terms, the SB provides the ultimate kiting experience.

 

Designed to be the "jack of all trades", the 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade continues it's legacy of being one of the world's most popular kites. Unlike other all-around freeride kites, the Switchblade often surpasses the capabilities of style-specific kites - freestyle, surf, wakestyle, etc. The Switchblade is capable of helping a total beginner get their first rides in, stable enough to jump off a massive tower, or even winning the Red Bull King of the Air (via Nick Jacobsen).

  

The entire lineup of 2018 Cabrinha kites has been updated with High Tenacity Dacron, a canopy material specifically designed with inflated kite structures in mind. Slight modifications of each canopy design have been made to accommodate this new high-performance material, selected for many reasons. It has a tendency to return to it's original shape much faster than other dacron, making for a much "snappier" feel when turning the kite. Additionally, it shows much greater resistance to wear over time.

DESIGN PROFILE:

The Cabrinha Switchblade once again proves why it is the worlds most loved kite. With Nick Jacosens recent King of the Air title, his world record Woo jump of 28 meters, and his mind bending jump from the top of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai (a height of 210 metres), it's clear that the Switchblade’s performance is legendary. 

But what the competition hasn't been able to replicate is the Switchblade’s unrivaled combination of high performance and ease of use.

Whether you are working on your freestyle game or testing your limits of getting incredible air, the Switchblade will deliver with a class of predictability and reliability that can not be found anywhere else.

2018 Cabrinha Control Bar Options

The returning Cabrinha 1X with TrimLite Control System sets the standard for simplicity and safety. The lightweight design and fixed length design of the bar allows the rider to keep things simple, while still featuring the exceptional safety system of the Overdrive bars, the QuickLoop. The QuickLoop safety release remains one of the simplest and safest release systems on the market. Activation of the 1X's single line flagging system allows the rider to immediately remove power from the kite and safely return you to land. The TrimLite Cleat allows the rider to precisely control the trim setting with a quick and easy pull of a line, located within arm's reach. This design increases the rider dedicated to the Cabrinha brand to utilize a more widely-used method of trimming the kite, rather than their traditional Recoil system.

The ability to quickly adjust the turning speed of your kite with the simple pull of a toggle is invaluable while working on progression and your preferences on the water. Back for it's third season, the 2018 Cabrinha Overdrive 1X bar is available with TrimLite depower adjustment, keeping things simple. Featuring a standard cleat and line design, the TrimLite makes adjustment easy and precise. The 2018 model also features a new center fitting with a larger opening and higher degree of turning and a new EVA grip pattern with Finger Bumps.
