2018 Cabrinha Switchblade Kite

 

Simply put, the 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade Kite is the do everything kite. It's got the Woo world record jump, it's the Red Bull King of the Air champion, and Nick Jacobsen chose it to jump off a 600+ ft. tall building in Dubai. No kite can cover as much ground as the 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade Kite, and now it's the choice of the sport's most compelling rider, Nick Jacobsen. The 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade Kite, like Nick, is a symbol for fun. Left largely un-promoted by a Cabrinha pro athlete for years, the 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade Kite now has an image and athlete associated with it who is pushing its boundaries every day. We didn't redesign the kite for Nick either. The 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade Kite gets the job done for him just like it does for tens of thousands of consumers worldwide. It's not put into any single category, it excels at them all.

2018 Cabrinha Switchblade 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! 
   
The Cabrinha Switchblade has won nemerous international titles including the World Speed Sailing record. A speed of 55 knots held by Rob Douglas. The Cabrinha Switchblade holds the current World Record for the biggest jump with a 26.8 meter boost by Nick Jacobsen. Nick also holds another World Record Title by jumping off the Burg Al Arab hotel in Dubai with his Cabrinha Switchblade from a dizzying height of 210 meters! 
   
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 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 valves's large dump feature!
