What are the similarities between Cabrinha and RRD?

Postby kite_hh » Wed May 30, 2018 12:27 pm

Both are managed by the Pryde Group. Ok.

Is there anything more going on? Are they sharing experiences? Is RRD the low price outlet? (price differentiation) Do they share similar designers? Do they produce in the same location?

I cannot really believe that Pryde Group would have a competitor within its own enterprise. To me it seems rather likely that they are trying to get the high price (Cabrinha) market as well as the lower price range (RRD).

Any thoughts or even better knowledge on this matter?

No connection. RRD (Roberto Ricci Designs) is an Italian company with historical roots in windsurfing. Cabrinha (Pete) is completely separate and distinct. It's my understanding that Pryde serves a distribution function, not "management" per se.

Does NP sabotage RRD kites like they did when they distributed Best equipment?

RRD is distributed in Germany by Pryde Group Germany. No other connection or relationship. Design and manufacturing of RRD kites is in no way not related to Pryde or Cabrinha.
