WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT

  • Explosive pop and great hang time
  • Great line slack for unhooked riding
  • Forward pull for kiteloops
  • Excellent for vertical boosts
  • Highly responsive and direct steering
  • Smooth power delivery
  • More drive than a traditional C shaped kite
  • Predictable handling
  • Quick recovery
  • Good upwind performance

The all new FX kite effortlessly bridges the gap between freestyle and freeride to create the perfect crossover kite. The new three strut, highly responsive platform gives riders the much needed power for explosive acceleration and the perfect amount of boost for huge lofty airs. The expanded “C” shape arc allows for aggressive kiteloops with the ability to hit the zenith in time for a soft landing. Its positive and direct steering as well as its quick relaunch make it perfect for intermediate to advanced riders.

RIDER PROFILE: A rider who mixes hooked and unhooked freestyle tricks. Loves huge jumps and kite loops. Likes to surf powered with a kite.

KITE TECH

Double Ripstop

Developed specifically for kitesurfing. Highly durable and low stretch in warp and weft. Excellent recovery on the bias. All Cabrinha kites are 100% 2DR Double Ripstop.

Learn More

Skeletal Frame

All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a skeletal frame foundation. Skeletal frame technology allows us to make a lighter more durable kite by strategically placing the reinforcement weight materials into a framework that surrounds the lighter weight canopy 

Learn More

Dynamic Arc

A dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. Tighter arc in flight for faster turning. Opens wide on the water for faster relaunch.

Learn More

  • Direct Connection To Hose
  • 2 Way Airflow
  • Large Airflow Aperture
  • Rapid Inflate/Deflate

Learn More

SPRINT Airlock Valve

Single point rapid inflation of the kite. The large one-way airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. It connects directly to the hose eliminating the need for an adapter. Once inflated you can lock off each strut independently.

Learn More

Power Control Pigtails

Quickly adjust the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions which you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. Create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.

Modern Craftsmanship

Kites are carefully constructed by hand using the most cutting edge technologies and materials available today. The secret to our ultra durable construction lies in the experience gained building the world’s best kites for over a decade.

Arena Kite Brasil 2014 nomeou seus grandes campeões neste domingo na Praia de Itaquí – Luis Correia – PI.

Após uma noite de muita festa e comemoração, durante a Sunrise com os DJ Germano Nottingham e Davi Fernandez, na Pousada Coqueiro Beach. Os atletas acordaram cedo para o Skipper Meeting agendado para as 9 da manhã. Com os ventos mais uma vez demorando a aparecer, o início das baterias foi adiado até a melhora das condições. Por volta das 14 horas, com o bastante sol e calor, o vento finalmente entrou possibilitando o reinício do evento.

As primeiras baterias do dia foram do terceiro round masculino, com os atletas usando seus maiores kites para poder competir com ventos na média de 15 nós.  Tomas Teixeira (CE) mostrou muita experiência para vencer João Carlos “Banana” (CE), que vinha de uma ótima vitória sobre Carlos Madson (CE) no segundo round. Na sequência, em uma bateria de dois companheiros de equipe, Ivanildo Fernandes (CE) velejou com estilo e derrotou Kalu de Souza (CE). Gabriel Santos (CE) velejou muito bem e despachou um dos favoritos ao título da etapa, o cearense Set Teiceira. Carlos Mario (CE) estava com as maiores médias do evento e não teve problemas para vencer Rhamon Juan (CE).

Seguindo o evento, tivemos as primeiras baterias das mulheres, com destaque para as velejadoras locais, que mostraram muita disposição velejando em casa. A catarinense Samy Marins venceu sua bateria sobre Bruna Veras (PI) e enfrentou na seqüência a cearense Estefânia Rosa, que mesmo pousando poucas manobras conseguiu melhores notas e se classificou para a final contra Dionéia Vieira (CE). Dionéia que é a atual campeã brasileira, não teve dificuldade para vencer na semi final a local Brena Veras e foi embalada para a grande final, onde acertou uma ótima linha de manobras dentre elas 313, Blind Judge e Front to Blind garantindo a vitória sobre Estefânia Rosa, que não se encontrou na bateria e ainda teve seu leash rompido nos minutos finais. Dionéia Vieira larga na frente na disputa pelo título brasileiro em 2014 ! Samy Marins venceu a disputa de terceiro e quarto colocados e completou o pódio da categoria feminina.

As semi-finais masculinas estavam montadas com a primeira bateria entre Tomas Teixeira, que fez uma ótima bateria, vencendo por uma pequena margem de pontos Ivanildo Fernandes. Carlos Mario e Gabriel Santos fizeram a segunda semi-final, com Carlos “BB” fazendo uma das melhores baterias do evento para garantir o seu lugar na grande final.

Com o final de tarde se aproximando e a praia cheia, a grande final do evento foi pra água. Carlos Mário embalado após uma bela semifinal, não deu chances para Tomas Teixeira e toda a sua experiência. “BB”acertou várias manobras de expressão como um Blindjudge 7 e Double Hintenberger 5 para conseguir a melhor média do evento e garantir a primeira etapa do circuito brasileiro de kitesurf.

Devido ao pouco tempo para ser realizada a respescagem (double elimination), os organizadores decidiram em aproveitar as últimas horas do evento para uma competição de Big Air. Carlos Madson (CE) mandou saltos super altos e faturou a categoria, Heliardi Cabrinha (PI) em segundo, seguido de Davi Morais (CE) e Gerlano Torres (CE).  Entre as mulheres, as irmãs, velejadoras locais dominaram com vitória de Brena Veras, seguida de Bruna Veras e Mariana Veras.
