Introducing the all new Cabrinha Nomad Ids  freestyle wave kite from Cabrinha. This non-bow hybrid IDS kite combines the best of both worlds…a moderate C shaped arc and an IDS bridle to deliver our fastest turning kite yet.

The Cabrinha Nomad Ids 2010 is the newest kite in the Cabrinha Series… it has a more closed arc than other kites, so technically speaking it is not a pure bow kite. It still utilizes the IDS- Intelligent Depower System bridle, has super easy bow style relaunch and the same control system as the other Cabrinha bow kites.

The Cabrinha Nomad IDS creates the type of kite turns that increase in power throughout the turning arc by pivoting off of the wing tip. This makes for powered kite loops unlike anything on the market.

The Cabrinha Nomad IDS comes with two distinct tuning options. The freeride bridle setting is aimed squarely at the professional freestyle rider and is balanced to fly perfectly while unhooked. This setting is ideal for intermediate to pro level freestyle tricks or unhooked surfing.

The Cabrinha Nomad IDS is a kite for an advanced rider looking for performance in freestyle and waves. The kites turns off the wingtip and generates a lot of pull in kite loops. The Cabrinha Nomad IDS is ideal for anyone looking to do huge unhooked wake style tricks while still having the safety and depower of the IDS bridle and control system. In the surf, the kite sits back in the pocket and pivots nicely so that it’s always in the right place. The Cabrinha Nomad IDS absolutely floats as you rip down the line. The Cabrinha Nomad IDS has great depower and turns fast. The Nomad handles the task of unhooked riding by delivering a constant steady powerband. When unhooked the kite continues to fly forward, making the power predictable during your tricks.
This season Cabrinha take durability head-on with the addition of transitional strut panel materials and reinforced LE closing seams. Cabrinha have reinforced the high load areas of the Nomad with a transitionally weighted material. This well-placed material acts as a buffer zone between the rigid strut areas and the canopy. The entire canopy of all Cabrinha kites are flat seamed and taped prior to sewing. This is 20% stronger than the freehand sewn method of a top stitching.

The leading edge construction of the Cabrinha Nomad IDS 2010 now utilizes a hot melt glue tape in the leading edge closing seam for added strength. The entire trailing edge implements a two-ply of tough 70 gsm material for added durability and strength.
Full contact between the strut and the leading edge helps to ensure a rigid frame for the industry leading 
Cabrinha Nomad IDS. The positive connection not only provides stability and fast turning while the kite is in flight but delivers added durability and rapid relaunch.

Cabrinha have also improved the bridle lines in the high wear sections, now featuring a corded bridle material for use in the sections that pass through the pulley
The wave bridle setting allows a great level of depower for hooked in surfing. The fast turning speed of the Cabrinha Nomad IDS combined with its quick and short depower throw, make for a finely tuned, predictable surfing kite like no other.

The all new Powerdrive IDS control system has been redesigned from the bottom up to accommodate many new features while making it easier to use. The result is our most refined and evolved control system to date.
