Fanatic Sky Wing 2022

Fanatic Sky Wing 2022

The Fanatic Sky Wing 2022 is our dedicated board range for Wing Foiling. The ultra-compact shapes feel minimal when in flight mode but are loaded with volume for an easy start and maximum stability while floating.

Everything about the Sky Wing boards has been optimised for Wing Foiling. The compact shapes are split in two directions: The two smaller models have their focus from freeride to waves, with a curvier rocker line, forgiving bevelled rails and deep double concaves creating a flat section for early going and smooth touch downs at the same time.

The 5’4” and the latest additions 5’8” and 6’3” are focussed on the earliest take-off possible with minimal board size, but plenty of volume. The flat rocker delivers maximum glide needed for a quick flight in light winds. The 5’8” and 6’3” feature bevelled rails and a step tail to reduce the surface area for a quick and clean release of boards that size.
The Sky Wing is exactly what you want for Wing Foiling! Much more compact than a SUP foilboard, yet still easy enough to start and get up and out of the water.

This is our recommendation if you are looking for a 1.5, 2 or 3m kite to be used on a bar.

The kites are all a few of months old and have some repairs of various sizes, please see photos.

The Impulse TR is the perfect trainer kite for anyone who wants to improve their kite flying skills to get into kiteboarding, landboarding or snowkiting. A unique shape, bombproof construction, 3-line setup and the control bar with safety leash help entry-level kite flyers to develop their kite skills and get used to the power of a kite andhave an experience as close as possible to kiteboarding or landboarding right from the start. The extra center 3rd line makes a very easy instant relaunch possible.

The kite has been developed to offer a perfect balance between speed and stability, so riders get challenged when flying the kite but will not struggle to keep the kite in the air.

Features

  • Low-Medium Aspect ratio with specially developed profile – The aspect ratio of the Impulse TR ensures a high stability and used friendliness. The profile used in the Impulse TR ensures a smooth flying speed and power across the whole wind window.
  • Innovative cross-vents – The profiles contain carefully placed cross-vents to ensure all the cells of the kite to fill with air quickly improving stability and (re)launch. The cross-vents are prone to tearing in hard crashes so Peter Lynn has Created an innovative design to cope with the heavy loads the cross vents sometimes endure. These uniquely shaped cross vents are much tougher than standard cross vent design and are sure to set a new standard.
  • High quality fabrics – With a smooth 40D Mirai top and bottom skin the deck shape is smooth, light and extremely durable. The 70D cell wall profiles ensure maximum durability.
  • Reinforced air intakes and bridle points – The air intakes are reinforced with webbing, the bridle points are connected to the profiles with a double stitched seam, increasing durability.
  • Efficient Dyneema® Bridle – While being very responsive and direct the stitched Dyneema® bridle is kept to an absolute minimum to increase performance and reduce tangles.
  • Dirt channel & Velcro dirt-outs – Sand and dirt can easily be removed from the kite by using the Velcro dirt-outs in the wingtips. The dirt can move towards the tips via the dirt channel along the trailing edge.
  • Velcro bridle loop – The Velcro Bridle loop secures your bridle and prevents it from getting tangled when packing up.
  • Dyneema® Flying lines attached to the kite and bar – Dyneema® flying lines ensure minimum drag and stretch, making the kite more responsive. These high quality lines are already attached to the kite and bar, so you are ready to start flying right away!
  • Life line – The Impulse TR features a setup with two flying lines and a centre line, called the Life line. This extra line makes a very easy relaunch possible and is part of the safety system.

2021 Duotone Evo Kite

The Duotone Evo was our most popular kite in 2020 and it’s been improved on once again. Following on from the designs of the Duotone Dice 2021, the Evo now has a completely pulley free bridle for ultimate feedback from the kite and better predictability.

The fixed bridle has led to a more compact leading edge design which allows it to harness more energy for higher jumps but it’s more noticeable during kiteloops as the kite doesn’t deform or twist at all. This really is a complete game changer.

The Ultimate Freeride Kite

We were so pleasantly surprised in testing; the kite climbs out of loops even when underpowered, it’s fast, responsive and drifts well on the waves. There are very few kites that can claim to be at the top of their game across all disciplines, but this is one of them.

Along with the rest of the Duotone 2020 range, the Evo has a re-sculptured the trailing edge and changed the material. The lighter weight material is now not only tighter so it flutters less, but much lighter, so trailing edge has a lot less wear which is usually the most worn part of the kite. We can’t believe it’s taken kite manufacturers almost 20 years to solve this problem, but it looks like they finally have!

The kite has 3 settings on the steering line attachments at the kite to cover all the disciplines and these really are worth playing with as they completely change the way the kite feels and performs.

 

What Duotone have to say…..

The Duotone Evo 2021 is the best allrounder with an incredible wind range, precise power delivery, amazing stability and responsive handling, making it the choice for any type of conditions or riding style. Perfect choice in this kite package for all riders.

For 2021, Duotone have removed the pulleys from the bridle, this has the effect of increasing the responsiveness of the kite while still offering incredible depower.

There is also a new trailing edge design incorporating a wave pattern that drastically reduces flutter and canopy wear in this critical area.

The EVO is a delta-shaped kite designed to offer fantastic upwind performance and huge jumps. It has a dynamic turn that lends itself well to playing in the waves, and the kite is perfect for those riders looking to try their first freestyle moves too. It doesn’t matter what your style is on the water; the EVO is truly capable of handling it all.

The structural stiffness of the smaller sizes has been enhanced, making them rock solid even in gusty and strong winds. Reduced bar pressure makes the kite easy to fly and very forgiving, appealing to a lot of riders across the ability spectrum.

Sheet and go handling further enhances the rider experience, meaning the incredible performance of the EVO is available to everyone. If your riding isn’t confined to a particular discipline and you like to keep your options open for freestyle, big air and waves, then you need the EVOlution!

Evo 4 / 5 Line Control:

The Duotone Evo 2021 can be ridden on 4 or 5 line control bars, uniting new-school and free-ride in one kite. The Evo‘s delta shape offers great sheet and-go riding, excellent wind range and high de-power.

The overall shape helps the Evo turn quickly and predictably while the new bridle geometry stabilizes the arc for a soft, consistent bar feel and extreme back-stall resistance.

The 4-line mode boasts an innovative new safety system and bar-feel prefect for those who prefer soft, easy handling.

In 5-line mode the EVO additionally stabilizes the arc, providing a very direct bar-feel for new-school riding and the ultimate 5th line safety.

Auto re-launch means that you can go for it and never have to worry about re-launchng your kite. Just take your hands off the bar and let the kite do the work for you!

Best Allround of the Duotone Range:
An easy jumper with massive sheet-and-go qualities, offering huge depower, powerful lift and a massive hangtime. It’s the most accessible kite for all type of riders.

Delta Kite:
The most comfortable design with a very smooth kite profile. Upwind ability is unmatched and steering performance is very forgiving.

Easy Water Relaunch:
The relaunch is very fast and easy, thanks to the Delta design the kite doesn’t stick to the water.

Three Strut Design:
A lighter kite boosts agility and increases responsiveness. Turning is fast and the feeling at the bar is very predictable and responsive.

Powerful Lift and Hangtime:
Perfect for freeride performance with explosive powerful lift and huge as well as long hangtime.

  • Good light wind performance

HIGH PERFORMANCE FREERIDE / BIG AIR

 

The best freeride kite on the market is back, and it’s ready to redefine the boundaries of hangtime and kiteboarding as you know it.

The Rebel is a kite that has defined a generation of riders; it’s the best freeride kite on the market and the perfect tool to help you improve your riding. More than that though the Rebel was made for flying, no other kite in the Duotone range offers as much hangtime and float when you are jumping. Load up the edge and sheet in on take-off for an experience like no other.

This year, Flex Struts have been incorporated into the design; these allow the kite to twist when you input steering response through the bar. This has made the Duotone Rebel 2021 much faster through the turn and more dynamic than in previous years. The kite feels sportier, more like a race car, finely tuned and ready for action. The wind range on the Rebel is outstanding, the five-strut design keeps the shape stable in the air, so at the top end there is almost no limit, the jumps just get bigger, and the hangtime lasts longer. With several trim options on the bar, the Rebel is also very versatile, you can set the kite up for the conditions of the day and how you want it to fly. A familiar Sheet and Go feeling through the bar makes it a great kite for beginners and riders wanting to improve the way they ride.

From your very first jumps to the biggest airs you could possibly imagine; the Rebel is the perfect partner every step of the way. Get ready for take-off and experience flying in a way you can only get with the Duotone Rebel 2021!

Characteristics

 

Tech Features

FLEX STRUT REBEL

The counterpart to a stiff frame are the Flex Struts, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of SLS kites. The agility of a three-strut kite combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5 strut kite. A softer material enables the Flex Struts to bend and twist in a defined way. Steering impulses are transformed smoothly and fast into turning actions.

FUSION STRUT

This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line, which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.

2020 Duotone Rebel

TRINITY TX

Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials to marine sports. The combined creative power of Duotone saw the formulation of TRINITY TX. Exclusive to Duotone, TRINITY TX is a 3×2 canopy material, which has proven to be far superior to other canopy materials in terms of durability and dynamic performance.

The 3×2 yarn combination has proven to be the best solution in performance as well as durability, overall superior to any 2×2 or 4×4 yarn solutions. TRINITY TX. Made to stand the test of time.

LOAD DISTRIBUTION PANELS

As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.

2020 Duotone Rebel

MODERN TRAILING EDGE DESIGN

A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.

TRAILING EDGE FORCE CONTROL

The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.

DOUBLE-V PIGTAILS

These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.

KOOK PROOF CONNECTORS

The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.

2020 Duotone RebelHEAVY DUTY LEADING EDGE CLOSING SEAM

The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.

SELF RESCUE HANDLES

The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down. They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue manoeuvre.

ANTI SNAG

The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.

The acceleration into the air after you release the edge will have you pulling more G’s than Yuri Gagarin. But the hangtime will leave you breathless. There are several tuning options on the kite, allowing you to dial in the bar pressure and turning speed to suit your riding style. You can also choose to ride the Rebel SLS in the four or five-line configuration. The fifth line is available as an accessory.

The new materials, lighter weight and incredibly dynamic handling, combine to create one of the most exhilarating rides on the market. As soon as you start flying the Rebel SLS, you will instantly feel the power and performance at your fingertips. All you have to do is load up the edge of the board and get ready to send it to the moon!

Our thoughts on the Duotone Rebel SLS

We’re excited by this new big air machine! The Rebel has always been one of our favourite kites for high winds and foiling. It’s fast through the air, efficient and high aspect with loads of lift. It has been the benchmark for some time in terms of getting up high and with the SLS material making it lighter, it loops better and cuts through the sky quicker.

FLEX STRUT REBEL

The counterpart to a stiff frame are the Flex Struts, between middle and tip struts. They ensure a direct and very reactive feel of SLS kites. The agility of a three-strut kite combined with the stiffness and the solid frame of a 5 strut kite. A softer material enables the Flex Struts to bend and twist in a defined way. Steering impulses are transformed smoothly and fast into turning actions.

duotone rebel sls

FUSION STRUT

This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge. Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line, which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.

duotone rebel sls

TRINITY TX

Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials to marine sports. The combined creative power of Duotone saw the formulation of TRINITY TX. Exclusive to Duotone, TRINITY TX is a 3×2 canopy material, which has proven to be far superior to other canopy materials in terms of durability and dynamic performance.

The 3×2 yarn combination has proven to be the best solution in performance as well as durability, overall superior to any 2×2 or 4×4 yarn solutions. TRINITY TX. Made to stand the test of time.

duotone rebel sls

LOAD DISTRIBUTION PANELS

As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads. In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.

duotone rebel sls

MODERN TRAILING EDGE DESIGN

A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.

duotone rebel sls

TRAILING EDGE FORCE CONTROL

The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions. Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material. This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.

duotone rebel sls

DOUBLE-V PIGTAILS

These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.

duotone rebel sls

KOOK PROOF CONNECTORS

The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.

duotone rebel slsHEAVY DUTY LEADING EDGE CLOSING SEAM

The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam. The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally. The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.

duotone rebel sls

SELF RESCUE HANDLES

The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down. They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue manoeuvre.

F-ONE Bandit 2021 is finally here! The legendary BANDIT is back for a much improved 14th edition, offering the best experience no matter the conditions.

Take a look at our special discounted F-one Bandit package with kite, board, bar & lines, pump & leash HERE

 

  • Outstanding upwind efficiency.
  • Optimized effortless bar feeling offering a clear and precise steering feedback.
  • Exceptional wind range, the new Bandit is remarkably effective from low to high wind.
  • Reduced lateral pull, the quest for a ride without drag continues and has reached new levels.
  • Power and generous lift for sensational kiteloops and big air boosts.
  • Impressive stability for a comfortable and safe feeling, no matter the conditions.

The F One Bandit has long been a favourite of ours and among our instructors. Initially released in 2008 after the Tribal and Tribal 2 kites (we had them too and they were great!), the early Bandits were power houses with not much refinement, long easily tangled bridles and lots of power. Over the years they’ve become much more streamlined, lighter, faster, more agile and far better all round kites. For a long time the Bandit has been the benchmark for all freeride kites and plenty of other big brands have looked to create a similar ‘one kite does all’ product, such as Duotone with their Evo.

In 2020 the Bandit and Bandit S were split to allow the S to be more aimed towards surf and the Bandit to be freeride and big air. We found the 2020 Bandit to be a bit higher performance than we have seen in previous years and it was a bit of a handful for beginners. The 2021 has been given better overall stability without losing the performance that the 2020 model had, so it’s become accessible to all again.

In early testing we’ve found it to be a great kite with a bit more low end power than before and tonnes of lift for jumps. It can still be used on a surfboard but the S excels in this department.

The colours has been simplified too with less choice but still very smart. We still think this is one of if not the best all round kite available!

f-one bandit 2021

The BANDIT 2021 is extremely pleasing to fly whilst having a sporty feeling. Its behaviour is direct and reactive as well as stable, smooth and homogenous. Very light to fly yet has a feedback incredibly direct. The kite consistently reacts to your demand, and you always know where it sits in the window. The turning of the BANDIT is quick and precise and remains totally controllable when depowered.

The smaller sizes 7 to 10 m are configured for more overpowered winds and big air where you can play with those crazy kiteloops and tricks. The bigger sizes 11 to 14 m offer incredible control and freeride stability. Key to this new concept is the updated spider 4 or 5 points bridle set up, which is different to the classic 4 point bridles on the Bandit S. The new bridle helps keep the profile arc of the kite stable even in extreme overpowered conditions.

The larger sizes of the Bandit feature all the excellent characteristics of the smaller sizes, but the design profiles and arcs have been tweaked to offer even more low-end wind range and lightness.

The jumping potential of this year’s model is absolutely insane. Offering explosive vertical lift the kite has plenty of float to chuck in some boards off or old school moves. Loops are fast and you will always find the line tension and pull you’re looking for. Just pull on the bar and the BANDIT 2021 will generate power, fantastic kiteloops sensations and super smooth landings with no stalling. F-One has reached new levels of stability making riding comfortable and safe no matter the conditions. Also managed to get a way more homogenous experience from low to high wind range with each size of the range. It crosses over to disciplines like foiling and even wave riding super well. After spending countless hours testing and developing prototypes, F-One are proud to release the new and improved 2021 BANDIT.

Whether you are looking to send it, freeride for hours, or explore the waves, this kite will exceed all expectations.

Auto Relaunch

Once the kite is sitting with the leading edge flat on the water its C-Shape associated with the Delta Pivot allows the kite to automatically roll over onto one wing tip. The kite will then glide towards the edge of the window, ready for quick and easy water re-launch.
F-One Force Frame

Force Frame

Kites with extended de-power ranges sustain more pressure across the canopy as they experience an increased frequency of use over a wider wind range.

Consequently F-ONE has developed a completely new structure for the Bandit, offering optimized durability with no additional weight gain. The FORCE FRAME is a solid Dacron structure consisting of the leading edge, the trailing edge and the struts. This high strength skeleton structure is then covered with lightweight Spy material in the least vulnerable areas.

Effortless upwind abilitiesF-ONE Bandit XV 2022

F-One BANDIT XV 2022 PRESENTATION

The BANDIT is incredibly stable in the air, no matter what the wind is doing. Its fantastic control allows you to perform to a high level in all areas. The kite translates gusts into forward pull.

Improve your big air moves with the new BANDIT. The kite loop is quicker this year with a tighter turning radius, allowing you to dial in as much or as little intensity as you might want. You get a total support from your kite, therefore the landings are softer as you get that extra lift before you land.

The impressive instant steering response offers precision flying with the best balance between ease of input and feedback impulses from the kite. This results into a very linear feel with zero stalling. Experience the fabulous BANDIT feeling of the steering and the sheeting working so beautifully together.

The BANDIT XV offers improved hang time, pure jump height and vertical boost. It requires fewer skills and efforts to load the kite before sending it.

Going upwind is easy and comfortable, it will charge you back upwind after trying new tricks and big jumps!

Thanks to its legendary Delta C-Shape, the only still patented kite design, the kite offers incomparable bar feeling, the best relaunching ability and exceptional stability.

The leading edge has been redesigned with one more segment and a new diameter for optimum maneuverability and stability.

The new double vertical panel around the trailing edge, the double canopy trailing edge and the lighter Dacron between S1 and S2 offer the sleekest profile for the most stable flight.

Reinforcement and the construction overall has been improved to gain even more control.

Most Wanted for 15 years and still running, the BANDIT never fails to impress.

SPIDER BRIDLE

We have worked on a bridal system for the new BANDIT 2021. The Spider bridle is a multi point of connection well dispatched along the leading edge which offers a better control of the arc of the kite during the flight. The stability in all wind conditions is very impressive and pushes the high wind range to incredible limits.

TEIJIN 130G DACRON RIPSTOP

We have built our kites for 20 years in the most state-of-the-art cloth from Teijin’s factory in Japan.
They have developed the best technologies and quality material for our kites over the years. Teijin has worked on a few major developments with the double Ripstop on the canopy cloth and durability treatments.

The kite industry was lacking choice of cloth density. We could build kites with a 52 gr per square meter for the canopy and about 160 gr for the leading edge, strut and reinforcements. Having only two choices was not easy because on some parts the 52 gr was too light and the 160 gr too heavy.
After developments and tests with Teijin we can now use a new Dacron 130 gr double Ripstop on our 2020 kites.

By using that new 130 gr cloth, we have saved weight while keeping an excellent strength. The new BANDIT 2021 is more reactive and of course feels lighter, which is particularly important for the bigger sizes, in the light wind or for the turning speed during kiteloops.

The new F-One Bandit S2 is here! This is the second edition of the BANDIT S, with major improvements to take wave riding, strapless freestyle or even foiling to the next level.

Take a look at our special discounted F-one Bandit package with kite, board, bar & lines, pump & leash HERE

  • Exceptional stability and control
  • Total direct control of the steering anywhere on the bar throw
  • Firm, precise and ultra-light bar pressure.
  • Super smooth power delivery
  • Homogenous traction and amazing agility
  • Extended wind range

This year the Bandit S comes with the improved profile skin tension as well as the trailing edge construction and design. A new vertical panel layout with its warp line orientation at the back of the profile. New trailing edge design with our 135gr Dacron. All of this improved a lot the control of the profile and the kite’s weight.
This new profile offers a very impressive stability and responsiveness which are essential features for wave riding. The traction and the control of the F-One Bandit S2 is so homogenous in any wind condition and everywhere in the window. The BANDIT allows to ride on impulse, which makes your ride more fluid.

Besides that work on the profile and stability, we have modified the outline of the Bandit S2. The centre strut is now shorter and the wing tips wider. The handling is now more reactive and the S2 is following closely your board’s turns.
Every aspects of the design have been improved and the profile has been rethought. The leading edge has one more segment on the centre to set an even more clean C shape curve. We have removed one segment on the tips to make them sleeker.

The bar feeling has been tweaked to be even lighter and more precise to react instantly to your input.
When you are wavering and riding strapless you are constantly using the bar to adjust the power and the direction of your kite. That connection with your kite is essential and we always use the term: “bar feeling” but it is a lot more than this.
While working on the design of the new F-One BANDIT S2 we have made major improvements on the steering, especially when sheeting out. Most of the time, when depowered, you are losing the back lines tension and so the steering control. It’s particularly noticeable in on-shore conditions where your kite need to change direction to follow each of your turn.

f-one bandit

Power delivery feels exceptionally linear and progressive, with smooth depower that is highly intuitive allowing you to have a perfect balance and to focus on your surfing or tricks. It never surges in power if you send it back quickly through the window.
The control and stability in overpowered conditions along with its impressive vertical lift is making as well the S2 a fantastic kite for strapless freestyle!

The BANDIT S2 is reactive, light and drivey making it the ideal kite for foiling. The stability of the S during the drift is a great help on a foil especially when your lines are slack during turns or carves.

The BANDIT S2 will please all the strapless riders out there. Highly responsive, intuitive and capable of super drift, enjoy the easy to fly nature of the kite and its impeccable handling in all conditions!

1X Security System

Upon activation of 1X’s single line flagging system the power of a kite is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land.

undefined

Dynamic ARC

Dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The arc of the kite takes on one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water. While resting on the water the arc opens up slightly to facilitate an easier relaunch.

undefined

High Tenacity Dacron

Cabrinha’s all new Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp oriented. Using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.

undefined

Pure Arc Segments

Increased Leading Edge segments provide a smooth, high definition and aerodynamic arc. Added L/E sections on the Moto create the smoothest arc shape. The leading edge and canopy shape are now in near perfect harmony which makes the kites very efficient for their size and have an overall smoother feeling.

undefined

Power Control

Every Cabrinha kite comes with a simple, user adjustable way to choose the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions you can connect to. We recommend the middle or third position, furthest from the kite. However, the user can choose to create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite, or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.

undefined

Pure Profile Panels

The strategically placed panels provide ultimate control over the aerodynamic profiles in the kite. Smooth and stable profile entry. Improved overall kite efficiency, performance, and range. Faster flying through the sky giving you a broader range of performance.

undefined

Skeletal Frame

Provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in-flight. The stable frame drives the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation and has excellent overall de-power. The inflated leading edge introduces the laminar flow of air across the kite’s Pure Profile panels, for a quick recovery if stalled and prevents the kite folding on itself. The inflatable structure reduces the amount of bridling required for stability. It also provides safety by providing some flotation in the water, and enables easy re-launch.

undefined

Sprint Airlock

The Sprint inflation systems is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite inflated and deflated quickly. The enlarged Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump requires no special adapters. Once inflated, you can lock off each strut independently to keep your kite’s rigid frame, and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite. When the session is over, the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valve’s large dump feature.
