Cabrinha HiRise Speed

Postby mattin » Sat Apr 17, 2021 5:54 pm

Thinking of the Cabrinha HiRise Speed HF for freeride and mainly boosting.

Im guessing:

The curve of the front wing is quite "bent" leading to quite good roll stability but on the other hand the front wing is quite "short" even though the AR is fairly high. Therefore it would be nice to know if anyone here has this foil and could comment on the roll stability and "grip" when "edging" with the hydrofoil for boosting.

Today I ride gong Pro M and gong allvator kite wing. The pro M is too slow for boosting and the allvator kitewing is way to unstable for loading huge airs.

Thanks in advance/ Martin

Hi Martin

I know this may come late but here it goes.
I do have the cabrinha Hi-Rise speed. But I am still learning, probably not the best foil for learning but I got a good deal and I took it.
I have the 40cm mast and doing some progress.
I really enjoy the foil but I am still in the taxi and take off phase.
As a beginner I don't know how to answer much of your questions. But for a comparison I have a Liquid force Rocket V2 with a 90cm mast and I can't do nothing compared to the hirise speed.
Wich is strange as I tougth the rocket v2 was going to be my learning foil so I then could jump to the hirise speed... Turns out I am learning and enjoying much more the hirise speed.
Hope this helps in anything

Best regards
João Silva

Now take that Rocket front wing and bolt it to the Cabrinha fuselage. Yes, the wing has 3 holes and the fuselage 2, but the holes distance is same. Mount the wing in the aft position so it covers the front mast bolt.
You´ll have one of the best foils for learning, trust me!

P.S. Sorry for misleading you. The LF Rocket wing cannot be mounted on the Cab Hi:Rise Speed fuselage without an adapter, but on the older Cabrinha foil.
Here are photos of both fuselages with LF Rocket wing. The adapter for the HiRise is made of an aluminum plate. Drop me a PM if you need me to get the dimensions for you.
