2020 Pivot or any Naish Kite with Cab Bar

Postby CanadianGringo » Fri Apr 23, 2021 4:08 am

So I am aware that Naish kites require pigtails with a Cabrinha bar. Is there any reason why it would fly differently than it should? Basically with normal Cabrinha pig tails and then additional pig tails to attach to the kite to match Naish bridle.

I would just swap the cabrinha pigtails but plan on flying other kites that are not naish.

I'm using an Airush bar for my Naish kites. I just swapped the pigtails on the bar. The colours mismatch, but since I'm the only one rigging it, it doesn't matter.

Indeed, I use a North Navigator bar with my Pivots and it has conveniently swappable pigtails so you can still be "kookproof", which is a really stupid thing, but it works fine.

I use cab on pivots. Seems fine to me. I have not tried the 24m naish lines though.

If you need pigtails to change the front / back - knot - loop, you can buy a naish bar...it comes with extra loops. ;-)
