I've seen this kite in person and it does not look red at all. The color is actually a dark orange-red. More orange than red. And it has a sheen to it. Almost glitter like. Good looking kite in person. The bar looks amazing and has had a lot of major overhauls. The V is dropped down low to the bar. The push away release is SO MUCH MORE SIMPLER to re-engage now. Stoked to get one when they come out. Cabrinha also lowered the depower pull handles down a full 2 inches so they are easier to reach.

Pete was into riding foils a long time ago and he sold them out of his Maui store, and they sell them out of their Florida store, but have never branded them under Cabrinha in the past.

From one of the videos: "This spinning head doubles as a stopper to prevent the quick release from being constricted by the bar in emergency situations".

It seems that the new swivel/stopper mechanism will reduce the overall amount of bar travel by several inches and therefore, all else being equal, the maximum amount of sheet in available. Those of us with shorter arms know already that the Cab bars require a lot of travel for full de-power so will not want to trim the kite in any more than necessary to compensate for this reduced travel.

A couple of questions:

(1) Is this just a theoretical concern ? I am wondering if any reduced bar travel is noticeable on the water ? I don't know if I actually bottom out the bar to the QR mechanism on my old switchblades when doing a 'full sheet in'. I do know that I did not pull the QR even once last season. There seems to be plenty of de-power available just by letting go of the bar.

(2) Under what circumstances would the bar be all the way into the QR to prevent it from operating ? If this extra safety margin was needed even just once, then it would seem like a worthwhile idea.

Overall the new bar and QR system seems like a nice advance and I don't want to knock Cabrinha on the new design. Just curious about this particular change, that's all. Everything is a compromise.

Pakihoa...
what this means: with the bar pulled all the way in, you will still be able to operate the QR. This feature is not available on other brands with what looks like similar QRs

the distance from the bar (with the standard depower loop) is 23cm to the end of tthe depwoer loop. same has it has been for several years.

The reccoil spring has been extended 5 cm...this means that the "pulls" at the ends of the bugees for depwer/power (red and black) are 2" closer to the bar/rider...a good thing with those with shorter arms

i will also be possible to get an even smaller depower loop (easy to install) which brings the bar and the depower pulls aproximately another inch closer to the rider

hope this helps...steve
