The 2018 Cabrinha kite colors and graphics are awful. As they were awful for the 2017 collection. I'm not speaking about the kite performances here but only about the aesthetic. However it counts too when I buy a kite. The 2016 collection were good and my wife loved the 2013/2014 Siren collections.

Maybe they are aiming for the younger market, money is in the hands of older kiters tho. Im 16 and digging the graphics like never before from cab.

Only two colors in 2017 made that year boring

But unlke old cabrinha which I despite, the new gear from them is finally looking clean and simple! No bridle, pulley and springs overload. It looks good!
Note my opinion is based just on the short glimpse we got from the video ;)

If there are no springs and plastic gizmos it just can't be Cabrinha - how are Cabrinha going to issue their now traditional recalls? :?:

Some of the kites look great, the more solid colored ones especially. Interesting they switched to yellow on left, that's one place where it's okay to be boring and keep same color consistently year after year. For their sake I hope no recalls!

at least they got rid of the circus tent kites, i dont know what they were thinking with the blue and red. they still look like something you might throw over a building for gassing bugs, but at least it's better than last year
