Why You'll Love It

*1X Security - Complete Kite Shut Down *Adjust Bar Length 8 CM in Seconds *Internalized Lines / Clutter Free *Depower On Demand *Removable Security Pin *Spinning Leash *Secondary Qr *Ergonomic Floating Bar Ends *Internal Swivel

Our eternal quest for a simpler solution to control, handling and security, has produced our cleanest and most feature rich control system to date. The Overdrive 1X control and security system is a compact joystick with heaps of built in features.

More Performance in Seconds

The Overdrive control bar can adjust a full 8 cm in length in seconds. Unlike other bars on the market, the Overdrive bar starts with a shorter bar length and can expand to the larger length if you wish. There is no reason to carry around all that extra bar if you prefer to ride on the standard setting. The 49cm standard bar setting is great for smaller kites, or if you would like the kite to be less reactive. By easily switching the bar into the Overdrive™ mode the length changes a full 8 cm to 57cm and immediately increases the turning speed of any kite large or small. Additionally, adjustment can be made on the water, if desired. EVA bar ends provide floatation for the entire control system.



The new bar ends can change the length of your bar from its standard mode of 49 cm, to the Overdrive mode of 57 cm in seconds. The Overdrive mode will increase the turning speed and performance of any kite large or small.

DIRECT STEERING LOW V PROVIDES MORE DIRECT FEEL We have lowered the front line connection to the CAS in order to provide a more direct and immediate response from your bar input.

SECURITY COMPLETE SHUT DOWN IN ALL CONDITIONS When it comes to security, the Overdrive™ 1X control bar integrates our all new 1X single line flagging 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.


FLEX GROOVES Allow for size adjustment while maintaining ergonomics in both standard and Overdrive position.

OVERDRIVE SHIFT LEVER Changes the length of the bar a full 8cm

INTEGRATED LINE WINDER & BUNGEE Neatly manages line set

FLOTATION EVA bar ends provide adequate floatation for entire control system

OVERDRIVE SHIFT HANDLE Allows for easy adjustment even while riding


QUICKLINK The main QR activates the 1X complete shut down in all conditions. To reconnect, simply push the QR up until it catches on the hook, insert the pin through the tower and cover the pin with the QR. Located below the main QR the secondary QR allows the rider to completely disconnect from their kite.

RECOIL + ERGONONMIC TRIM ADJUSTERS One of QuickLink’s defining features is our Recoil trim adjuster. Recoil keeps your trim adjusters in the same position every time. Even after you’ve depowered your kite, Recoil will return the trim adjusters to the exact same position for easy operation.

MULTI BORE TUBING One of the features allowing us to internalize everything is the dual chamber PU tubing. 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.

FLOATING BAR ENDS The EVA ends are buoyant enough to float the entire control system with lines attached, thus making the bulky floats on the leader lines unnecessary.

INTERNAL SWIVEL The internal swivel allows the depower mainline and the 1X security line to spin together in unison. This eliminates the chance for the lines to tangle within the PU tubing.

FLYING LINES - RATED #1 FROM GERMAN KITE MAGAZINE Highly durable and extremely low stretch flying lines. The finish makes the separation of your lines effortless.


LESS IS MORE THE 1X bridle brings an upgrade in kite steering and control. The new system uses less moving points on the bridling which translates into direct input from rider to kite and incredibly precise steering.

*All bridles except for Vector have 2 pulleys.


COMPLETE SHUTDOWN IN AL CONDITIONS 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 in any condition.


DIRECT STEERING. MORE RESPONSIVE. FASTER TURNING. We have lowered the front line connection to the CAS in order to provide a more direct and immediate response from your bar input. Equal forces from all four control lines allow a natural and relaxed position for the arc shape to open. This more natural, or less altered angle, makes both sheeting and steering more responsive. As you steer the kite you apply tension to the rear corner of the kite in the direction you want to turn. As this happens there is another force applied to the opposite front control line as the kite initiates the turn. With a low “V” set up, the force to the opposite front control line is instantaneous and direct where, with a high “V” set up there is a slight delay.


Recoil always keeps your trim adjusters within reach.

When you push your bar to achieve depower, the Recoil spring compresses.

When the bar is returned to its normal riding position Recoil is automatically reset, returning the trim adjusters to their original position.


DEPOWER ON DEMAND PROVIDES MORE DEPOWER THAN ANY OTHER KITE ON THE MARKET Cabrinha kites introduced Depower on Demand in 2005 along with our revolutionary Crossbow kite. Even today, every Cabrinha kite incorporates Depower on Demand as the default method to precisely control the power of a kite.
