Slack Line Drift
While surfing it’s sometimes important to depower the kite to the point where you can surf on your own wave generated power without the pull of the kite. It’s here that the Drifter is able to stay aloft and drift
Wing Tip Sitting Options
We offer multiple tuning options which completely change the way a kite flies. These options allow you to customize the feedback and bar pressure, adjust where the kite sits in the window, and balance the power/ de-power range of the kite.
Cabrinha highly recommends testing the different settings for yourself to find out what feels the best to you.
A = The lightest bar pressure and lightest steering initiation. Ships on A setting. B = Much more feedback, more bar pressure, shortened depower, and more steering impulse to know where the kite is.
1X Security System
The 1X is not a depower system, it is a full blown shut down system. The 1X relies on only one line to immediately shut down the power of the kite whether it be on land or water in all wind conditions.
Power Control settings quickly adjust 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. Create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.
Our exclusive line of high-quality woven fabrics has been designed specifically for kitesurfing. The Volae materials are made with accuracy and consistency, and are guaranteed for every kite we make. Our 2DR Double Rip Stop material is designed to provide a lightweight, yet durable, canopy with extremely low stretch properties. This translates into a kite with the ability to lock in its intended shape, while remaining ultra-reactive to rider input.
Provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in-flight. The stable frame drives the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation and has excellent overall de-power. The inflated leading edge introduces the laminar flow of air across the kiteåäÌÝå»s Pure Profile panels, for a quick recovery if stalled and prevents the kite folding on itself. The inflatable structure reduces the amount of bridling required for stability. It also provides safety by providing some flotation in the water, and enables easy re-launch.
Dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The kite takes on one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water.
The all new Sprint inflation systems has been completely re-engineered for even better airflow. It’s the most efficient and easy way to get your kite pumped up quickly and is now easier to deflate your kite. The large Airlock valve cross section quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump requires no special adapters. Once inflated, you can lock off each strut independently to keep your kite’s rigid frame, and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite. When the session is over, the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valves large dump feature.
New Sprint System
- New enlarged valves
- New tool-less retention system
- Secure zip tie closure
- Re-engineered pinch clamp
- New Silicone Valve Covers
A high aspect ratio design makes the kite fly forward and point upwind incredibly well. A lower aspect ratio design is more responsive and provides a consistent and stable pull.
Low Stretch Bridal Lines
This year you will notice the bridle lines to be more stable with a lower stretch and lower shrinkage. The grey color is the indicator. This update keeps your kites performing at the highest level over a much longer time.
Onshore And Offshore Turning Options
Side Shore/Offshore setting optimizes performance for wave riding in side shore and offshore wind. Side Shore/Onshore setting optimizes performance for wave riding in side shore and onshore wind.
