2012 Cabrinha Switchblade Kiteboarding Kite - On Sale Now!
The Cabrinha Switchblade has been blowing kiters minds for 6 years now and is not about to disappear from Cabrinha’s lineup anytime soon. Just go to your local beach and see how many Switchblades there are and from what years. The reason this kite has stuck in the lineup unlike the others that have come and gone is the heritage of being the worlds most reliable and predictable wake style and freeride kite.
Some of the 2012 Switchblade's featured refinements consist of a newly repositioned and retuned bridle design, improved kite balance, a lighter overall feel, and a custom tuning feature that enables the rider to choose between the wake and freeride settings. The freeride setting offers lighter bar pressure and the wake setting makes the kite a bit more stable and requires more bar impulse to initiate turning. The Switchblade was also built with a new cutting edge canopy material. This new material is initially treated with stabilizing resins and then additionally coated with a Cabrinha exclusive formula which provides the kite with the most durable hi performance canopy possible. Also included with on the 2012 Switchblade kites are Cabrinha's stainless steel bridle guides, which completely eliminates the presence of pulleys on the kite, the SPRINT single point rapid inflation system and Cabrinha's IDS safety system which has become the industries benchmark for kite security systems.
The 2012 Switchblade, with it's reputation of being the worlds most popular freeride and wakestyle kite, is also a great performer in the waves. The Switchblade truly holds its own in a variety of different wind and wave combinations with its ultra stable flying characteristics. While surfing down the line you can comfortably focus on riding the wave and not have to worry about the kite falling out of the sky, looping or pulling you out the back.
