Description

2015 Cabrinha Switchblade 11m – Used

Performance Freeride / Crossover

The Cabrinha Switchblade is a fantastic, all round, high quality kite. Made for the discerning rider who values unrivaled predictability and uncompromising freeride performance. With style, power, performance and craftsmanship.

Very good condition, still bright and crispy with little signs of wear. One pro repair to the canopy and one little patch, both these are hard to see and do not effect the kite at all. The zip on the bag no loner works but it can still be tightened shut using the webbing straps

 

The Switchblade is back, with over 12 years of design and composition refinements. Evolving into an icon, the Switchblade sits at the heart of our kite range where style and performance are seamlessly interwoven. Loved by many for its unique combination of smooth power delivery, unrivaled predictability and uncompromising high end performance, the Switchblade has redefined the notion of what a single kite can achieve. The five strut design has distinct segments that hold the canopy true to its intended shape, increasing the kites performance regardless of the wind conditions or angle of attack. The wide ranges of attack angles give the SB the incredibly powerful, predictable pull it is famous for. Unmatched in its power, performance and craftsmanship, the SB unapologetically creates the ultimate kiting experience.

Features & Benefits:

  • Ultimate performance in the widest range of conditions and variety of riding styles
  • Smooth power delivery
  • Predictable handling
  • Great upwind performance
  • Ridiculously high hang times
  • Distinctly sharp and precise turns
  • Easy relaunch

 

 

Technology

The layout starts in segmented sections in the design software, but, in-flight its natural shape is a smooth arc. In order to make the transition between segmented and curved, we doubled the aerodynamic control by halving each canopy segment, providing the ultimate curvature control which is where 90% of the performance comes from. When a kite is clean and smooth it will be faster through the sky giving you a broader range of performance.

 

Steering and bar pressure settings

We offer multiple tuning options this season which completely change the way a kite flies. These options allow you to customise the feedback and bar pressure, adjust where the kite sits in the window, and balance the de-power range of the kite.

Cabrinha highly recommends testing the different settings for yourself to find out what feels the best to you.

A = The lightest bar pressure and lightest steering initiation.
B = Much more feedback, more bar pressure, shortened depower, and more steering impulse to know where the kite is.

 

Back line pigtails settings

Power Control settings quickly adjust the power level of the kite. Each rear line pig tail connector has three power positions which you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. Create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.

 

Swept wingtip design

A dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes, one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water. The flying shape occurs as soon as the kite gets airborne and the front lines are under tension optimised for the intended usage. The arc shape is held in place by a simple set of bridling which occurs when the kite is not in flight, such as when the kite is resting on the water in relaunch mode. The dynamic arc allows the kite to open its span and orient the wingtips in a position to facilitate a super quick relaunch.

 

Highest quality materials

Cabrinhas exclusive line of high-quality woven fabrics has been designed specifically for kitesurfing. Unlike many of the generic sailcloths available in todays kites, the Volae materials have been specially developed to our exact specifications.

All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation by placing the most durable, 160 gsm Dacron material into a framework that locks in the intended shape. The canopy uses light weight yet highly durable 53 gsm polyester woven material with a second layer of 53 gsm two-ply material over the high stress strut sections. Next 75 gsm double ripstop reinforcement material is used to combat the extreme loads that are placed on the trailing edge and wing tip areas of the kite. Moulded EVA chafe protectors, robust leading edge protectors, and triple row stitching at the high stress inter-segment seams near the center of the kite add to the durability.

 

Sprint One pump inflation system

The Sprint Inflation System with Airlock is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite pumped up. The large one-way Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location and needs no special adaptors. Once inflated, you can lock off each strut independently to 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 valves large dump feature.
