  2. 2020 Cabrinha Kitesurfing Collection

    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.

  4. Duotone DICE 2020

    Watch the 2020 DICE in action whilst we talk you through every update, performance feature and overall design that creates a versatile all-round kite “I froth on doing extreme big airs, and with the new Dice I can boost higher and pull off more aggressive megaloops than ever before, it’s so sick!” Reno Romeu Freestyle, waves and big air, the Dice does it all and can handle anything you can throw at it. Overview Ralf Grösel brought the first Dice to market with Tom Court who wanted a wakestyle/freeride kite with flavour. Matchu Lopes looked for a top performer for wave riding with stability and pop for strapless freestyle. With the Red Bull King of the Air and the Megaloop challenge captivating riders like Lasse Walker, the 2020 Dice is the intuitive, 3-strut, extreme performer, pushed and developed to perfection with show stopping megaloop potential. What´s new New, lighter Trailing Edge wave patch for reduced flutter and TE flutter marks No bridle-pulley for an ultra-compact and precise canopy structure Improved bar feedback at the top of the windrange Maximised jumping performance and hang time due to optimised profile and TE cone adjustment Behind The Design of the 2020 DICE - Ralf Grösel For the first time ever, I removed the pulley within the kite bridles. This small change has a big impact on handling and in-flight characteristics. The biggest benefit is the more compact Leading Edge frame which can carry more energy during the take-off sequence resulting in much higher jumps. READ MORE The boldest Team riders share why the 2020 Dice continues to deliver “The 2020 Duotone Dice is a machine! Through the new refinements it absolutely excels in performance when I’m doing Extreme Big Air. But, it also still has the overall feel and smooth handling the Dice has become famous for. This year the kite has a much more direct response, a super crisp feel and is way faster, which means heaps more fun and longer jumps!“ Lasse Walker READ MORE 2020 DICE in a Nutshell Inspired by the Red Bull King of the Air and team rider Lasse Walker, the DICE has been equipped with a fixed bridle system to unleash the most radical performance we have ever seen on a bridled C-Kite. Accurate and responsive, it’s the fine tuned favourite no matter the conditions.
