Cabrinha Moto

Postby rleshem » Fri Jan 04, 2019 2:14 am

Hi All

Any reviews of the Moto. Especially versus the switchblade.

Looking for lower bar pressure faster turning with good jumping abilities. The description of the Moto sounds good but wanted to get some user feedback.

I have ridden the 9m Moto a couple times. I find it to be a.....................confusing kite. It is not bad by any means, it is just a little weird. It seems like a kite that does not know how it is supposed to fly. It is very quick turning, but it is not a big jumping kite. It drops you fast from jumps. It also tends to surge downwind after jumps and kiteloops like no other kite I have ever flown. It does not drift down wind, it surges. It tends to fly forward in the window when driving upwind and then back in the window as soon as you let off even a little. It feels stable and a little unpredictable at the same time.

It is a weird kite to fly, not bad, just weird.

I am used to Pivots, Switchblades for my freeriding. Boxers and Airush Ultra when foiling or surfuing and Rebels, Hyper and Edges for big air sessions.

To me it is a mushy feeling kite. Like its aimed for beginner lessons. Less bar pressure than switchblade but the newer switchblades have moderate bar pressure anyway.

Switchblade is such a precise, do it all kite. Moto doesnt seem to have enough performance for twin tip riding. Maybe for foiling or surfing when the kite almost becomes secondary.

Moto is not just rebranded Radar with some design small tweaks?

The Moto is very far from the Radar. Start with shape of the kites, they are different. But they don't ride the same. The Moto is not for beginners or lessons. rouge-kiteboarder's comments are most similar to my own.
