Re: 2010 Cabrinha Bar Centerline Sleeve Cracked/Broken

I just found new override sleeve and ring. They're realy cheap. Around $10,00 they told me and they have a couple of those in stock. I'll buy a couple for myself. I'll be able to use my old override IDS bar again. Happy. Yes new bars cost a lot of money. I found used one on eBay but it's still $200,...

Re: Info need on kite bar

Another think I forgot to said, I'm a short guy. I'm a 5'3" or 162cm. So my arm are small and reach the bar at the maximum deposed could be hard. Usually not to hard when I'm riding but realy realy hard to put the bar in the middle when I start in the water. So a bar I can adjust the length of depow...

Re: Which bar for petite person / shorter arms

If your bar have a clamcleat you can decide where put it. You can move along depower line and choose lenght you prefer. I prefer clamcleat near than 10 cm of bar's stroke. Question about that, if you put the clamcleat lower the max end of center line, you'll have less deposed and you will steel be ...

Re: 2010 Cabrinha Bar Centerline Sleeve Cracked/Broken

Thanks for the feedback! Although the bar is old, it doesn't get a lot of use. And when it is used it is thoroughly rinsed with fresh water (I spray water through the plastic sleeve to rinse out any salt, sand). But I will remove the sleeve to check the centerline and the IDS line to make sure they...

People want to ge...

Re: Info need on kite bar

Interesting to see Cabrinhas response. Not managed to get a clear answer consistently on this before. So you need one bar, adjustable size, short throw, low V, cheap and in full working order. You may just want to call Silent Sports and see if they can help: https://www.silentsports.com/Kiteboardin...

At 0:35 in the video they mention that the override is an optional accessory item.
Maybe your bar is just fine without it?
So the override and the ring are option and we can use it without those part?

Re: Info need on kite bar

Maybe post a picture of your bar? If you are lucky it may require only a small fix. Alternatively you need to find out what type of bar you need for your kites before going to market. Some bars are designed to work with equal length kite lines, others not. Some bars have a low V split and others a ...

Re: Info need on kite bar

I bought 2 kites BS 2009 with bar used. I'm assuming you meant two Switchblade kites? Cabrinha's 2009 Switchblades I believe were spec'ed with a front "two-line" safety system (mini-5th) up till 2013. Two-line safety systems have been pretty much phased out now, including Cabrinha's, but many (not ...
