Recommended Posts

2020 Cabrinha Kitesurfing collection Walkthrough


Pete Cabrinha takes us through what's new for 2020. Including: Cabrinha's exclusive NEW Nano Ripstop Canopy material used in every 2020 kite. The Modular Overdrive bar. The extended foil lineup. The Ace Hybrid Twin Tip.


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. With different cores and layups in 2020 your performance options are delivered in many forms including light weights, stiff or dampened rides, smooth or reactive reflex. Durability is the foundation of our twin tip program, and in that effort we use nothing but the industry best materials and construction techniques.


2020 Quickloop Control System


The Quickloop Overdrive 1X Trimlite is a highly refined control system with universal compatibility. From its soft and ergonomic adjustable bar ends to its lightweight cleat trim and 1x security system, the Quickloop Overdrive 1X Trimlite is a high performance and feature rich method of kite control.


2020 Modular Control System


Cabrinha's all-new Modular Control System allows you to customize your control bar to exactly the way you ride. With four different connection methods available you have the ability to connect in the way that best fits your style of riding. The flexibility of the Modular system is enhanced by the versatility of the Overdrive bar adjustment. With a full 8cm of bar length adjustment, you can choose the sensitivity level of your bar input, and allow for your control system to work on multiple sized kites.


Nano Ripstop Canopy


2020 catapults Cabrinha into the next generation of kite technology with our all new Nano Ripstop kite canopy material. A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the kite’s design properties are supported by a stable and reactive kite material. Nano Ripstop does just that.


2020 Contra


The Contra’s light weight 3 strut hybrid design performs incredible things in what used to be known as the unrideable realm. A true light wind performer in any and all riding categories.


2020 Drifter


The Drifter is specifically designed for kitesurfing in waves and strapless surf freestyle.


2020 FX


The FX is for riders that mix hooked and unhooked freestyle tricks, love jumping big and kiteloops. Available in sizes 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14


2020 Moto


The Moto kite from Cabrinha smashes all conventional thinking. This versatile Freeride / Crossover kite is light to the touch and provides a precise and linear power delivery. The lighter weight and quick response are made possible with its 3 strut hybrid plan form. Available in sizes: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14


2020 Switchblade Kite


If there is one kite that completely defines the essence of kiteboarding… it’s the Switchblade, the most sold kite in the industry. For 2020 the Switchblade celebrates its 14th birthday with the new Nano ripstop canopy, which gives the kite a big upgrade in performance and durability. The Switchblade’s reputation for being the world’s highest performance freeride kite not only comes from the thousands of customers who hail its praise, but from its long heritage of competition wins and records broken.

      Watch the NEO in action as we talk you through the new tuning options for waves and depower, or how you can set it up for strapless freestyle and freeriding. It’s been one of the most popular kites in the Duotone line up for a long time, and it’s easy to see why.

      “There’s so much harmony in the 2020 NEO and it allows me to step outside my comfort zone, especially in the waves.”
      Matchu Lopes
      The Neo is the choice of our highly decorated wave riding team, Airton Cozzolino, Matchu Lopes, Sebastian Ribeiro, James Carew and Patri McLaughlin. On the wave, it offers dynamic handling and incredible drift. When you want to freeride it’s an easy going companion. Enormous amounts of power and the depower is incredible. Exceptionally reactive and precise, you are always in total control with the NEO. Whether you are riding a monster at One Eye, pulling a strapless kite loop twenty feet up or just slaying some Euro mush, you need the Neo in your quiver.
      What´s new
      New, lighter Trailing Edge wave patch for reduced flutter and TE flutter marks Newly developed 75 gram Ripstop material Improved bar feedback at the top of the windrange  

      When a kite as popular as the NEO is changed, the modifications can’t be permitted if performance gains in one area cost performance loss in another area. Ken Winner talks about the 2020 design process and why keeping every performance quality that we like is essential.

      Sebastian Ribiero is one of those guys who’s always trying to push limits in light winds and Matchu Lopes strives to step outside of his comfort zone. Olivia Jenkins charges Jaws, Patri McLaughlin needs to trust his kite or he’ll end up in some sticky situations in massive waves and James Carew is simply trying to destroy waves.
      2020 NEO IN A NUTSHELL

      The 2020 NEO remains true to its roots and its purpose in life. Fantastic drifting abilities, responsive steering - powered or depowered, 4 and 5-line setup. It’s the go-to surf kite for all good and wannabe-good wave riders looking to get the most out of every wave session, as well as a good performer in freeride and foiling.
