Description

For a rider who wants unrivalled predictability, unmatched versatility and uncompromising high end performance and quality. Whether you’re boosting big air, throwing down technical tricks, or simply out for a fun session on your own terms, the Cabrinha Switchblade provides the ultimate kiting experience.

The longest running and most successful kite in the industry is back for it’s 17th year, and what a year it is. The kite that spawned not only a style of riding but also a whole generation of kiters has evolved into the highest performing Switchblade to date.


Taking the known Switchblade DNA, the Switchblade has evolved this 5 strut design through use of new technologies, construction techniques and internal adjustments, to give a more playful, lighter feeling kite, while still remaining predictable and stable.

World Titles, World Records, Podium topping, all on a stock production kite that has also brought so many people not only into the sport, but given the perfect platform to evolve, improve and push their own boundaries of what they thought possible.

Through the lightweight frame and strategically placed materials, the kite is now quicker to respond to rider input allowing for not only increased maneuverability in lighter winds, but also control and responsiveness in higher winds.

The new direct bridle with its low drag materials also help move this kite into an all new realm of performance.

Cabrinha Switchblade Features include:
  • NEW:  Refined lightweight canopy design for reduced weight and reactive performance
  • NEW:  Static low elongation bridle for improved reactive feel
  • NEW:  Sprint 3.0
  • NEW:  Ultralite bladders for an overall lighter weight kite
  • NEW:  Trailing edge EVA rigidity battens
  • Nano Ripstop Canopy:  Durability, stability and responsiveness
  • HTD for enhanced arc stability and improved handling characteristics
  • HTD Hybrid Frame
  • NEW: Durable TPU leading edge bumpers.

Features
Technology
Bi-Direction Pure Profile Panels:

The smoothest and 3d correct shape we've ever created allowing the smoothest transition between the segmented leading edge and curved canopy.

Hang Time:

The 5 strut stable platform allows for stability in higher winds and the wide arc allows for increased glide.

No Pulley Bridle:

Light, simple and responsive. No pulleys provides incredible feedback.

Direct Steering: 

Bar input immediately translates into kite adjustment.

HTD Lite:

Refined canopy design to reduce weight, combined with a full HTD Lite Dacron skeleton provides the lightest most reactive kites to date, increasing the range and performance of your product.

Nano Ripstop Canopy:

Nano Ripstop is a 55 g/m2 material with a 3mm double rip stop pattern. This micro rip stop material in unison with a newly developed coating, has given us a 2X increase in the canopy’s tear strength.

A smaller rip stop pattern increases the amount of “cells” in any given panel.

Sprint 3.0 Inflation System:

The Sprint 3.0 inflation system increases air flow from leading edge to the strut. The straight and angled valves allow for no kinking of the inflation tube.

It's secure fit design also allows for easy maintenance.

Bulletproof Bumpers:

These Durable TPU bumpers are strong, lightweight and durable. They crossover protecting the canopy to LE sewing.

A new manufacturing process helps with abrasion when the kite is resting on a hard surface.

Control Bar
Cabrinha COS Overdrive Trimlite Quickloop Control Bar:

The Cabrinha Operating System (C.O.S) was made to make its use so easy, that the rider can concentrate on their next jump, or wave.

This is the most feature rich control system to date, but the package is so simple and intuitive to use that anyone can feel the full benefits. 

Giving you complete control and awareness while in the sky and allows precise input when you need it most. The ergonomic new safety system gives you complete confidence in the wildest of conditions while allowing a full range of movement when the bar is pulled in and levered either side during Kiteloops.

It’s a do it all bar for any level of kiteboarder.
