Cabrinha Velocity Kitesurfing Kite 2014
Sizes: 9m, 11m, 13m, 14m, 16m, 18m
The Velocity VMG race kite represents the pinnacle of racing efficiency on all points of sail. Developed over an entire season with designer Pat Goodman, Damien Leroy and PKRA World Tour Racing Champion Bryan Lake, the Velocity VMG is podium proven. The Velocity is based on a bow kite plan form for the highest power to drag ratio. Its upwind ability is only matched by its ability to fly on all points of sail off the wind due to its full, powerful profiles. The Velocity features a light weight construction using only 5 micro struts with .06mm TPU bladders and modified panel layout with no dacron and no chafe protectors. Its power production is optimized by keeping the area focused where the arc is flatter and the aerodynamic forces contribute the most towards forward speed.
*Tighter Arc In Flight For Faster Turning *Opens Wide On The Water For Faster Relaunch
A dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. It takes on one shape while flying and another shape while in resting mode on the water. The flying shape occurs as soon as the kite gets airborne and the front lines are under tension. This is the kite’s intended shape which is optimized for the intended usage. The arc shape is held in place by a simple set of bridling. The dynamic arc shape occurs when the kite is resting on the water in relaunch mode. The arc is allowed to open its span which orients the wingtips in a position to facilitates a super quick relaunch.
SINGLE POINT INFLATION
*Direct Connection To Hose *2 Way Airflow *Large Airflow Aperture *Rapid Inflate/Deflate
The Sprint Inflation System with Airlock is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite pumped up quickly. The large one-way Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump now 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.
REDUCED DIAMETER / LIGHTWEIGHT
In 2014 our dedicated lightwind kite struts have been reduced in size for substantial weight savings. Smaller struts mean less dacron and less TPU. Lighter weight equals higher efficiency and a lively more responsive kite.
POWER CONTROL: PIGTAILS
*Power Up Or Down To Maximize Range
Every Cabrinha kite comes with a simple, adjustable way to choose 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. But 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.
