Tech specs

Cabrinha 2018 Kite Tech HIGH TENACITY DACRON HIGH TENACITY DACRON
Cabrinha's all new Dacron is 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 in the warp direction under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.
Cabrinha 2018 Kite Tech PURE PROFILE PANELS PURE PROFILE PANELS
The strategically placed panels provide ultimate control over the aerodynamic profiles in the kite. Smooth and stable profile entry. Improved overall kite efficiency, performance, and range. Faster flying through the sky giving you a broader range of performance.
Cabrinha 2018 Kite Tech SKELETAL FRAME SKELETAL FRAME
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 kite’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.
Cabrinha 2018 Kite Tech VOLAE MATERIALS VOLAE™ MATERIALS
Cabrinha's 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 they make. Our 2DR Double Ripstop 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.
Cabrinha 2018 Kite Tech 1X SECURITY 1X SECURITY
Upon activation of 1X’s single line flagging system the power of a kite is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land.
Cabrinha 2018 Kite Tech SPRINT SYSTEM SPRINT SYSTEM W/ AIRLOCK
The Sprint inflation systems is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite inflated and deflated quickly.. The enlarged Airlock valve 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 valve’s large dump feature.
Cabrinha 2018 Kite Tech DYNAMIC ARC DYNAMIC ARC
Dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The arc of the kite takes on one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water. While resting on the water the arc opens up slightly to facilitate an easier relaunch.
Cabrinha 2018 Kite Tech POWER CONTROL POWER CONTROL
Every Cabrinha kite comes with a simple, user adjustable way to choose the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. However, the user can choose to create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite, or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.
