THE NEW 2019 FX

 

Over the last years, the world of Freestyle and Crossover kiting has evolved into an exciting genre in our sport. The 2019 Cabrinha FX is the go to kite for freestyle, kiteloops & massive air.

What was once a very narrow and technical discipline is now a mix of technical tricks and massive aerial maneuvers, both hooked-in and unhooked. For this you need a kite with the sensitivity and ‘slack’ when unhooked and the ability to boost massive hooked-in kiteloops. The FX delivers on these two fronts and more with the power and handling to take your riding seriously.

The 2019 FX Kite has three tuning options for riding styles. More depower provides maximum power delivery for boosting aerial tricks. More Line Slack provides the needed slack in the kite for unhooked tricks. The Standard / Factory setting gives you the happy medium for the perfect crossover ride.

THE CABRINHA RIDER ACADEMY

 

Earlier this year our top freestyle riders met in Italy for the first Cabrinha Rider Academy. The event focused on gear testing and R&D, content creation, training, photo shooting and media networking. Held at the famous ProKite Alby Rondina in Sicily, the riders put all the new 2019 gear through its paces. The riding was on another level, with an atmosphere intent on progression and feedback for future products.

      “The AV8 design concept places the rider directly in the middle of two incredibly tuned kite boarding machines. Both the AV8 kite and board are designed to cut through the elements with minimum drag and maximum efficiency.
       
      Separately, the kite and board are phenomenal in their own right, but together they create the apex performance freeride experience. AV8 is the equivalent of a wind driven supercar in every respect.” - Pete Cabrinha.

The Duotone Kiteboarding team were there in full force. From training to developing new Duotone products, creating soon-to-come movies and representing the #truekiteboarding in style, here’s a round up of the action.

      #truecommitment - TOM COURT
      There is no truer testament to our sport than the pure motivation that it can give you. Tom Court has shown us over the past few years that not only can you come back from blowing a knee, but you can come back from it twice! In his last video clip This Windy Planet, he sums up his state of mind after having back to back knee surgeries and the inspiration that kiteboarding has given him to overcome one of life biggest challenges. Good to see you back on the water in Cape Town Tom!
