2018 Cabrinha Drifter Kite

 

The 2018 Cabrinha Drifter Kite has a 100% redesign for the first time since its initial launch. The 2018 Cabrinha Drifter Kite was not redesigned to change what it does in the surf, but more to modernize the kite to contain features like Pure Profile Panels and to increase its range of use as a strapless freestyle kite. The result is a 2018 Cabrinha Drifter Kite that handles, behaves, and performs as one would expect in the surf - like a boss. As an added bonus, the 2018 Cabrinha Drifter Kite lifts better for strapless airs, turns and sheets with significantly less bar input (i.e. "less bar pressure"), and has a slight increase on the low end. The 2018 Cabrinha Drifter Kite is one kite to do it all on a surfboard. The 2018 Cabrinha Drifter Kites small sizes of 4.5 and 5.5 have been replaced by 4, 5, and 6m designs.

2018 Cabrinha Drifter Kite Technology

 

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! 
   
Dynamic arc allows the kites 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! 
   
Our 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! 
   
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.  The middle position is the factory recommended position.  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 the rider! 
   
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! 
   
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 an easy re-launch! 
   
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! 
   
The Drifter has powered Keahi De Aboitiz to 4 Kite Surfing World Titles. The Drifter has powered Moona Whyte to 2 conseccutive World Titles!
   
Offshore setting optimizes performance for surfing in side shore and offshore wind. This facilitates better upwind ability which allows for easier cutbacks in offshore wind.  Onshore setting optimizes performance for surfing in side shore and onshore wind.  This setting provides for the maximum amount of "drift" as well as tighter turning!
