13m Velocity vmg rear bridles.

Postby Jugglajon » Mon May 12, 2014 7:33 pm

Hi

Does anyone know the measurement of the rear bridles that run thru the pully blocks on the Cab Velocity 13m 2014.

Both sides of mine have worn and stretched and as such I can no longer measure them. Also does anyone know what specification BS / Material the bridal line is.

I've been in touch with Cabrinha support and they weren't particularly supportive. Apparently they don't traditionally supply replacement bridles.

Am more than capable of stitching the ends of the cord myself just need material type , Breaking Strain and length.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Jonny

Still getting nowhere with Cabrinha support and getting quite frustrated with their lack of response. If any of you guys/gals could measure and share with me the rear bridle length of your 13m velocity I'd be a very happy man.
Thanks
Jonny

Cabrinha makes good kites but their support is really awful. Too bad, i use to love Cabrinha but i am now riding another brand. I almost bought a vmg last year and reading your post I am happy I didn't.

mmm.. Not many pro racers riding the vmg.
Should send a facebook message to Florian Trittel or Jade O'Connor.
They both ride VMG's

Thanks for the offer Knot moving but Cabrinha finally got back to me with the length I needed - only took a few weeks....

The email I received however was not very polite. They basically said that I hadn't looked after the pulleys or bridles. They also imformed me that its extremely rare for a bridle line to wear that has a pulley running over it and due to this it is not considered a wear part.

I love the velocity, it is one of my favourite kites that I've flown but after sales / customer service is not good.

Had a minor issue with a slingshot kite the other day and their customer service was exceptional!

160.6 cm 1.9mm sleeved dyneema is what you need for a no.4 line on the 13m velocity 2014 :) ready to fly :)
