Product Overview

2023 Cabrinha Switchblade Freeride Kite.

 
The kite that spawned the freeride revolution of kitesurfing and opened up the doors to many new kiters around the world moves into its 16th year and the next step of evolution to this incredibly versatile design.
 
The introduction of the Hybrid Frame and HTD Lite materials has increased not only the range of one of the most adaptable kites in the industry, but also, it’s performance. Through the lighter frame and strategically placed materials, the kite is now quicker to respond to rider input allowing for not only increased maneuverability in lighter winds, but also control and responsiveness in higher winds.
 
The new direct bridle with its low drag materials also help move this kite into an all new realm of performance.

THE BENCHMARK

The benchmark in durability, stability and responsiveness.

REFINED SIMPLICITY

An all new redesigned and balanced bridle with no pulleys gives a lighter feeling faster turning and more responsive kite, allowing for a wider range of users and also control for jumping.

ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE

The most versatile kite in the industry, allows for use in the widest range of conditions and variety of riding styles.

UP IN THE AIR

The 5 strut stable platform allows for stability in higher winds, and the wide arc allows for increased glide.

HIGH POINTING

The unique profile of the canopy allows for effortless upwind performance.

IT'S IN THE SWEEP

More sweep allows for not only increased range, but also easy relaunch, especially in lighter winds.

 

 

 

HYBRID FRAME

The perfect fusion of materials. A combination of High Tenacity Dacron  (HTD) &  HTD Lite blends together giving the kite the support it needs, but with increased response.

 

HIGH TENACITY DACRON

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 under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite/wing with a more efficient and accurate airfoil in flight.

 

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.
