If you have heard about the Cabrinha kiteboarding brand you might also have encountered the Switchblade kite. The Switchblade is iconic for its super versatile all-round properties for freeriding, cruising, freestyle, wavesurfing, foil boarding and for performing in a wide wind range.
With the Switchblade kite, you get high hang times, smooth power delivery and great upwind performance.
When activating the 1x security system the power of the kite is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land.
This technology allows the kite to have two different arc shapes. It has one arc shape when in the air and another when resting on the water to open up a bit more to facilitate an easier relaunch.
The material that Cabrinha uses enhances to keep the structure intact and at the same time it combats deformation while in flight and this also lower the elongation to make more precise and predictable kites.
Each “pig tail” connector for the rear lines on the kite have three power positions that you can choose. The middle position is factory recommended position. Choose the knot closest to the kite to create more power. Choose the knot closest to the rider to create less power.
To give the kites the proper and stable aerodynamic profiles Cabrinha strategically places panels in the design. It improves efficiency, performance and the range of performance.
This technology secures the structure of the kites when in action and makes it stable. This also enables easier re-launch.
This large airlock system allows quick inflation and after session quick deflation. Each strut can be locked to keep your kite frame rigid and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite.
