Cabrinha 03 Product Videos

Cabrinha News:

Cabrinha has just launched the largest product collection in the history of the brand

Nitro Big Air Kite

PERFORMANCE FREERIDE / BIG AIR

SIZES: 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 12

In 2004 Cabrinha took big air kiting to a new level with the Nitro. A kite that was ahead of its time, it powered riders to the top of the podiums around the world. 19 years later we have broken the boundaries in the big air realm and are bringing it back to our roots.

The Nitro is back. A Pat Goodman design from Cab Design Works, which is the pinnacle of Big Air kiting.

Development was a no holds barred approach to see just what could be created to reach the extremities of height and stability. An Apex series product, the Nitro utilizes the most cutting edge materials, purposely developed for use in inflatable structures to be flown in the extreme demands of big air kiting. With phenomenal warp and weft elongation strength, especially under load, Ultra HT material keeps the kite in a stable arc, but the reactive bias movement allows the kite to turn even when under increased pressure allowing the kite to really fly and recover from loops.

The sport of Big Air kiting is more extreme now than ever before. Tricks, which were individual in the past are now combined into one jump, and the demands on the product have never been higher. To ride to the extremes, you need a kite that will get you there, and the Nitro is that kite.

Contra 3S Kite

PERFORMANCE LIGHTWIND / FREERIDE

SIZES: 13 / 15 / 17

20 years ago, the Contra took light wind riding to a new level. It has graced the quivers of many kiters throughout the past two decades acting either as their all-round everyday kite, or as the ultimate session saver.
This year sees the largest evolution to the Contra legacy.
Through the use of HTD Lite and the Lite Frame technology we have been able to reduce the weight of the kite by 15%, allowing it to perform even better in those threshold winds.
The three-strut design makes this kite the go to for light wind twin tip riding, and also makes it the best jumping light wind kite we have ever developed.

FX2 Kite

FREESTYLE / CROSSOVER

SIZES: 7 / 8 / 9 / 11 / 13

Air and style are two words synonymous within the board sport industry. Most people develop their skills to achieve one or both of these terms, but to really master them both, you need a product that will allow you to get there.

A true crossover kite, the FX2 gives riders the tools to take to the sky in the Big Air realm delivering fast powerful loops with amazing catch ability, but with a change of bridle, they then have a no compromise freestyle machine that will allow you to push your limits and the boundaries of what you thought possible.

The new Hybrid Frame and HRD Lite materials have further increased the range of the FX2 to allow for an increased low end range, and also maneuverability in the higher winds and during double loops.

Drifter Kitesurfing Kite

SURF / FREESTYLE SURF

SIZES: 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13

One kite that has become synonymous with Cabrinha is the Drifter. A kite that does what its name says. A kite that allows kiters to experience the power of the ocean, a kite that lets you focus on the job at hand instead about worrying about where it is, or what is doing. With multiple world titles behind it and more barrel time than any other kite in the market, the new Drifter has taken the next evolutionary leap in delivering an expanded ocean experience.

The all-new Lite Frame and HTD Lite material, gives the most reactive Drifter kite to date, allowing you to put the kite where you want it in the air, no matter what style of riding you are doing.

Whether you are taking to the skies for Strapless Big Air, charging down the line on a screaming point break or ripping wind swell, the Drifter will always deliver.

Contra Aether Kite

PERFORMANCE LIGHTWIND / FREERIDE

SIZES: 4 / 5 / 7 / 9 / 11

There is something truly liberating and free when riding a Hydrofoil. This is further heightened when you are able to ride in winds that were not previously thought possible. Conditions where the water is still, and the only noise is the apparent wind in your ears as you glide across the ocean.

The Contra Aether has proven its self as a bench mark in the single strut kite realm. A kite that not only allows you explore these threshold winds, but also keeps you in control when the winds pick up, or you change your choice of board.

The single strut design and the use of the Hybrid Frame and HRD Lite materials, gives you an incredibly nimble and light kite to fly, allowing you to use much smaller sizes of product to maximize foil boardings true potential. Feather weight control and amazing drift characteristics allow you focus on your riding and not the kite.

https://www.cabrinha.com/products/contra-aether





Moto X Kite

VERSATILE FREERIDE CROSSOVER

SIZES: 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 12 / 14

From the evolution of electric vehicles, through to being able to carry a computer in our pockets we are surrounded by innovation, and in the Cabrinha range this is most noticeable in the all-new Moto X.

In what was already the most versatile kite in the range, we have taken the performance to an all-new level through not only the latest material advancements from the Cab Design Works Team, but also a new innovative design from Pat Goodman. A kite that can be flown anywhere, by anyone. A kite that allows you to choose the way you ride. A kite that will take you to the next level of riding.

https://www.cabrinha.com/products/motox





Operating System [Overdrive Trimlite]

ADJUSTABILITY, CUSTOMIZATION & SIMPLICITY

SIZES: S/M (42-50) / M/L (47-55)

The most critical piece of equipment in kiteboarding is the Control System. A system that you not only you rely on for your safety and well being, it’s also the direct link between you and the elements.

A lot of work goes into Kite Design. The Cab Design Works Team works countless hours tuning and modifying the way a kite feels in order to make it the highest performing product on the market. In order to get the most out of all the work, you need a control system that gives you a direct connection to the kite. This connection needs to be intuitive and seamless in use, allowing you to focus on having the most fun in the elements.

Introducing the COS.

The goal in the development of the COS was to make its use so easy, that the rider can concentrate on their next jump, or wave.

This is the most feature rich control system to date, but the package is so simple and intuitive to use that anyone can feel the full benefits.

Spectrum Twin Tip Kiteboard

ALL AROUND FREERIDE

SIZES: 133 X 40 / 136 X 41 / 140 X 42 / 144 X 43 / 148 X 44 / 152 X 44

It’s all about predictable performance designed for progression at an incredible pace. The spectrum is Mr. Reliable and is feature rich at a mighty impressive price tag.

Progression is all about repetition and so the spectrum has excellent upwind tracking to maximise more time for the fun stuff. Its incredibly forgiving ride makes it the easiest board in the range to ride and with a multitude of sizes you can make sure your focus never leaves your kite.

https://www.cabrinha.com/collections/tw ... s/spectrum





Stylus Twin Tip Kiteboard

LIGHTWIND / FREERIDE

SIZES: 150 X 45 / 160 X 47.5

The stylus has redefined kiteboarding in lighter winds. What is really impressive though is its top end performance.

While care has been made for optimal efficiency for light wind planing and control its stiff flex, light weight paulownia core allows you to still take to the air and take advantage of less than perfect wind conditions.

The Stylus is no light wind ‘Door’ and you’ll be thankful of its feature rich design long after the wind picks up. Its light wind rocker will get you planing while others are still stood watching from the beach deliberating.

https://www.cabrinha.com/collections/tw ... cts/stylus





ACE Wood & Hybrid Twin Tip Kiteboards

ACE WOOD

ALL AROUND FREERIDE / BIG AIR

SIZES: 133 X 38.5 / 135 X 40 / 138 X 41.5 / 141 X 43 / 145 X 44.5

The all-new 03 Ace is the culmination of 3 years of design work from the Cab Design Works team. It’s been stripped back and rebuilt with a completely new outline and bottom contouring.

The Ace’s vertically laminated paulownia wood reduces weight and allows a true flex giving you complete confidence to try anything.

Whatever conditions the day throws your way the Ace’s versatility will lead to progression in all areas of your riding.

https://www.cabrinha.com/collections/tw ... s/ace-wood


ACE HYBRID

HIGH PERFORMANCE FREERIDE / BIG AIR

SIZES: 135 X 40 / 138 X 41.5 / 141 X 43 / 145 X 44.5

The all-new 03 Ace is the culmination of 3 years of design work from the Cab Design Works team. It’s been stripped back and rebuilt with a completely new outline and bottom contouring.

To say this board is lively is an understatement. The ‘hybrid’ mix of ingredients ranging from its dual Carbon stringers, honeycomb foam & paulownia mix core optimises strength to weight ratio. What makes this method of board design so appealing is its versatility and ease at which it performs across riding genres.

Modern day kiteboarding is about freeriding, be that boosting huge airs, slashing waves, powered tricks and the Ace Hybrid seamlessly transitions the freeride spectrum making it highest performing ‘Do it all’ board in the range.

https://www.cabrinha.com/collections/tw ... ace-hybrid





Xcal Twin Tip Kiteboard

XCAL CARBON

COMPETITION FREESTYLE

SIZES: 135 X 41 / 138 X 42 / 141 X 43

The Xcal Carbon is the most responsively tuned board in the Cabrinha range leading to exceptional freestyle performance. The most important stage of any trick is the take off and it’s here where the specific use of Japanese Toray carbon construction and the aggressive quad tip channels produce explosive & predictable pop.

High speed landings are absorbed with ease through the centre double concave shape. When sheer performance is all that matters the Xcal carbon is your go to stealthy performer.

https://www.cabrinha.com/collections/tw ... cal-carbon


XCAL WOOD

ALL AROUND PERFORMANCE FREESTYLE

SIZES: 133 X 40 / 135 X 41 / 138 X 42 / 141 X 43

The Xcal wood is packed full of performance enhancing features to get you up to speed in a flash and it’s here where it excels giving the rider a completely locked in and controlled ride. What you do in this moment is in your hands, whether you release into the stratosphere or load the rail into a powered takeoff. High speed landings are absorbed with ease through the centre double concave shape.

https://www.cabrinha.com/collections/tw ... /xcal-wood





CBL Twin Tip Kiteboard

WAKESTYLE / CABLE

SIZES: 139 X 42 / 142 X 43

Style and steez is often something that takes many years to perfect.

Enter, the CBL, a crossover kite / wake board that utilizes a bomber P-tex grind base with specific engineered reinforcements dedicated to aid in your progression to perfection and allowing you to session, whether there’s wind or no wind.

Its stiff flex and wood core is designed to ride fast and create insane levels of pop and slack. This extra time in the air allows you the time to add grabs or extra rotations. Its ample rocker line dispels water on impact, cushioning landings with a stomp! Its moderate rail and tip shape allow for grip while not impeding presses on sliders and features.

Method Kite Surfboard

CROSSOVER SURF

SIZES: 4'10" X 17.6" X 1.9" X 18.5L / 5'0" X 18.1" X 2" X 20.7L / 5'4" X 18.6" X 2.1" X 23.7L

The evolution of strapless riding is hitting all new highs. The Big Air resurgence in kiting has paved a way for a new generation of strapless riding. Riders are pushing the boundaries and throwing moves that not only challenge what was thought possible on surfboards, but also that seems to defy the laws of physics.

The Method is the board for this new generation and beyond.

The square outline and fast rocker line help keep on track and ready for the next trick. The wide tail and tail channel help when loading up ready for take off. With progressive volume distribution through out the board, you can touch down with ease and get ready for the next wave or aerial trick.

https://www.cabrinha.com/collections/su ... cts/method





Flare Kite Surfboard

CROSSOVER SURF

SIZES: 5'1" X 18.5" X 2" X 20.5L / 5'4" X 19" X 2" X 22L

Maybe the most fun board you have ever ridden, the Flare will light up any session.

The wide point forward on the board helps get you up and going and keeps things fun and fresh whether riding waves or taking to the air. The fish tail and quad fin set up give you the forward drive you need to get from section to section, but still be loose and fun when turning off the top.

The flare turns every wave into a playground, and changes the way you look at the ocean.

https://www.cabrinha.com/collections/su ... ucts/flare





Phantom Kite Surfboard

CROSSOVER SURF

SIZES: 5'6" X 18.5" X 2.1" / 5'9" X 19.1" X 2.2"

Speed, Power, Flow. Three words that have become synonymous with wave riding over the years. A very rare few are born with a natural ability to make this happen with ease. Others need to make sure they are on the correct craft to really exploit the oceanic mountains they choose to ride.

The Phantom is the next generation of high performance kite surf boards. Specifically designed for the forces of kiting, the Phantom really comes into it’s own in real surf conditions. The curvy outline and rounded pin tail give you the confidence required to crop into that bottom turn, or carve off the lip. The IsoFlex construction also allows for increased grip and drive during those critical turns.

4 fin or Thruster, you can choose your style of riding between full power carves, or critical vertical hits.

Special Agent Foilboard

HYDROFOILING

SIZES: 105 X 39.5 / 125 X 42.5

The Special Agent is a freeride foilboard like no other. It has been freshly designed for riders wanting performance and simplicity in one easy to use foilboard. The UD carbon, fiberglass construction added to a geometric stringer from tip to tail gives incredible stiffness and responsiveness. The reduction in sizing is made comparable to bigger boards due to an advanced new outline that maximizes its length while the bottom shape adds volume and float to your ride.

The full EVA deck pad with kick tail allow complete freedom of movement and direct board control. Riders using footstraps can utilize the 2 or 3 strap configuration for a fully customizable ride.

The industry standard 9cm new adjustable foil tracks come complete with integrated T-nuts allowing you to finely tune the mast position.

https://www.cabrinha.com/collections/ki ... cial-agent





H-Series MkII Cab Fusion Hydrofoils

Just when you thought a product couldn’t get better, the new H-Series MkII pushes into the future of foil design and sets a new benchmark for efficiency and performance. The design team have implemented new technology learnt from the collaboration with Sintef. Water testing in the biggest tank in Europe has refined the H-series tip shape to allow the tips to breach and re-enter without cavitation. This allows more progressive riding and radical turns, be it with a kite, wing or prone. The new leaner profile now boasts an increased speed range which helps entry into freestyle tricks or on the race field. It seamlessly pairs with any of Cabrinha’s V-series stabs and is part of the modular Cab Fusion system.

Carbon Hollow Mast

HIGH PERFORMANCE - LIGHT WEIGHT

SIZES: 74 / 84 / 94 CM

The all-new Hollow Mast system is yet another example of the state of the art foil program from Cab Design Works. It nods to the critical & complete design approach of the team to view every foil component individually with a view to improve stiffness across the entire platform. It implements a bladder molded construction with strategic layering of carbon as far to the outside as possible. This culminates in our stiffest ever mast to front wing connection. This reduction in flex eliminates any lag in the turn and transfers energy while pumping seamlessly through to the front wing.

In the Hollow Carbon Mast video, Brodie says that it has a 14.5 mm thick profile. If that's true for the final production mast, why aren't they putting that spec on the product page? That is a HUGE selling point for a lot of foilers considering the NoLimitz mast is 16.7 mm.

Cabrinha's overhaul looks interesting. Looking forward to reading some real world reviews.

14.5mm is correct. We are going for high speed and low drag and this thickness gives us both of those plus the stiffness we need as well. Sorry, I can't give you a real world review.
