2020 Cabrinha Kitesurfing collection Walkthrough

2020 Strap & Binding Overview (Cabrinha Kitesurfing) H1, H20, H3, Ultralight, AV8
Cabrinha offers 5 strap & binding options for the different disciplines of kiteboarding. The H1 is a one strap, asymmetrical body shape which provides a positive fit for the rider looking for a lightweight and positive connection. It is supportive, yet lightweight and flexible, and can be used for all types of twin tip riding from freestyle to freeriding. The H1 attaches to the board with minimal effort and allows for multiple stance options with duck and heel toe offset options. It sits on a super cushy footpad with arch support, toe grips, and generous heel coverage. the H2O offers an unprecedented ergonomic binding interface. The incremental adjustment provides an industry first innovative heel to toe adjustability to conveniently modify the shape, position and fit of the top strap. In conjunction with the 360° compression strap, it provides a locked feel unlike no other. The comfort and adjustability of the triple density footpad offers the user a choice of two heel density options: a plush and comfortable option or a performance oriented impact absorbing option. The H3 is a fully adjustable boot designed for the unique forces of kiteboarding. Unlike a traditional wakeboard boot, a kiteboard boot spends long periods of time on it’s heel side edge. This puts your ankle in a slightly different position and the H3 is designed to accommodate that position. The Ultralight strap is a minimal coverage strap that provides maximum board connection. The comfortable and very lightweight footstrap is perfect for surfing, foiling and racing, keeping you locked in with a direct feel. The Ultralight non-adjustable strap gives you that perfect fit and foot placement stability when you ride. The AV8 Ultralight strap is a minimal coverage strap that provides maximum board connection. The comfortable and very lightweight footstrap is perfect for racing, surfing and foiling, keeping you locked in with a direct feel. The AV8 Ultralight non-adjustable strap gives you that perfect fit and foot placement for stability when you ride.
2020 Twin Tip Overview
Cabrinha's focus in 2020 is to perfectly match each board with its ideal construction.
