Design details

The Carbinha QuickLoop’s safe and simple activation of single line flagging makes it possible to kill the power of the kite so it will rest motionless on the water or land. The TrimLite Cleat is a light weight, simple trim system, that uses a 2:1 purchase to give your kite the perfect balance and trim to match the changing wind conditions.

INTERNALIZED LINES Cabrinha 1X Trimlite Bar 2016 Internalized Lines
The protective PU tube allows us to run the depower mainline and the 1X landing line through the center of the bar without the risk of abrasion or tangling.
LOW-V Cabrinha 1X Trimlite Bar 2016 Low V
Cabrinha have lowered the front line connection to the CAS in order to provide a more direct and immediate response from your bar input.
1X Cabrinha 1X Trimlite Bar 2016 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.
DEPOWER ON DEMAND Cabrinha 1X Trimlite Bar 2016 Depower on Demand
Cabrinha introduced Depower on Demand in 2005 along with our revolutionary Crossbow kite. Even today, every Cabrinha kite (except the Chaos) incorporates Depower on Demand as the default method to precisely control the power of a kite.
FLOATING BAR ENDS Cabrinha 1X Trimlite Bar 2016 Ergonomic Floating Bar Ends
The EVA ends are buoyant enough to float the entire control system with lines attached. The tips have Flex grooves which aid in bending the tips while winding your lines onto the bar or while steering your kite.

1X Cabrinha 1X Trimlite Bar 2016 1X CONTROL SYSTEM
Cabrinha's non-adjustable ultra light weight control system is recognised as the most ergonomic control system on the market. It boasts all of the safety features you need, while maintaining a sleek and clean look.
Cabrinha's new customized compact stainless steel TrimLite Cleat, allows precise and positive trim adjustment. The light weight design has an elasticized trim line, and internalized mainline and landing lines protected with PU tubing, which gives you the bare essentials with perfect balance and trim to match the changing wind conditions.


QuickLoop is an opening harness loop connection designed to work specifically with Cabrinha's 1X single line flagging system. Its defining feature is its ridiculously simple operation. When you activate the 1X’s single line flagging system, the power of your kite is immediately killed and will rest motionless on the water or land.

The main quick release (QR) is a push away release with a catch that holds the QR in the released position until you are ready to reconnect. To reconnect, simply push the open end of the loop into place, and the latch will automatically engage the loop. Dropping the QR body back down secures the loop back into place.
