Cabrinha Drifter 2018/19/20/21

Postby Mikkelza » Mon Apr 26, 2021 12:49 pm

Hi Cabrinha fans,

I have a quiver of Cabrinha Drifter 2017. Great kites that I like a lot. I start thinking about replacing. From what I read through the years, and by doing a recent scan of descriptions/reviews, it seems to me that the Cabrinha Drifter has not changed year 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021, beside color.

Can any of you confirm/refute this?

Kind regards,
Mikkel

Bridle material, Dacron, panel layout in the tips, and canopy material have all been improved through change.

Canopy on a 2020+ makes a huge difference

2019 feels soggy compared to the new canopy

Like all new kites it jumps higher, turns faster, is more stable, has better low end, better high end, is more durable and feels better to everyone who flies it😝🤣😳

Oh, from 2020 the 'nano ripstop' came. I haven't found info about bridles, dacron, panel layout.

So maybe 2018 and 2019 were similar, and 2020 and 2021, updated with the nano ripstop, are similar. Shape may be similar through all years.
