High performance kite with huge performance boost from Cabrinha
The Cabrinha Switchblade has been a rider favorite for years. World titles, world records and podiums feel like familiar territory for the Switchblade and confirm its high level of performance. The Cabrinha switchblade 2023 up at the premises is a great kite to start with and it will help you make your first meters as quickly as possible. The kite is positioned in the wind window in such a way that you can effortlessly ride upwind. The kite has great relaunch properties and provides a safe feeling on the water. The advanced kiter will also notice that this kite has a lot of performance in sight. It is the perfect kite to continuously improve yourself, push the limits and express yourself to the maximum on the water. The Cabrinha Switchblade 2023 is designed to keep you in the air for as long as possible, because that’s what it’s all about after all. Maximum hang time, easy boosting, great wind range, and an easy relaunch, that’s the Switchblade.
The Cabrinha Switchblade is a high aspect 5 strut kite. The profile of the Switchblade provides the perfect combination of a large wind range and a lot of hangtime. Regardless of the conditions, the Cabrinha Switchblade 2023 will amaze you. The good light wind properties, such as easy restarting and upwind riding, ensure that you can get on the water as quickly as possible and experience endless fun. In strong winds, this Switchblade will give you a safe feeling thanks to its 5-strut design. The 5 struts ensure that the kite remains very stable in the air and gives you all the confidence to go to the maximum.
For 2023, the Switchblade has been improved a lot, but do not be afraid because the Cabrinha Switchblade 2023 remains true to its character. For 2023, Cabrinha uses three different material blends in the struts and leading edge with unique properties. The Cabrinha Switchblade 2023 is designed with the Hybrid frame. The Hybrid frame is a combination of High Tenacity Dacron (HTD) & HTD Lite, giving the kite the stiffness it needs, but with an increased response. The canopy for the kite has been given a new refined lightweight canopy design that, together with the new ultralite bladders, reduces the weight of the entire kite and ensures more responsive performance. The fabric is made of Nano Ripstop fabric, which according to Cabrinha is the baseline for durability, stability, and responsiveness. This canopy consists of four times more squares per square centimeter than normal canopy. This makes the fabric stiffer, and the kite responds faster to steering movements. The bridle has been replaced for a bridle with much less stretch, giving you an even more direct feeling with the kite. During your jump or kiteloop you always feel exactly where the kite is in the wind window, making it easier to get your timing right.
In short, the new Cabrinha Switchblade has been well taken care of by Cabrinha this year. The kite will of course also retain its great character characteristics for 2023, but it delivers considerably more performance to get just a little more out of your sessions. Regardless of your level, the Cabrinha Switchblade 2023 will take you to the next level!
