We roll print the pattern directly onto the raw, unfinished material. The performance finishing process of the material takes place after the roller printing. The benefit of this, is that the ink is now printed directly onto raw unfinished fibers of the base material so there is an excellent absorption of the inks. Since the finishing process takes place afterwards, this seals the inks permanently into the fibers in comparison to screen printing on top of the slippery, water repellant chemicals used in the finishing process.

IDS – Intelligent Depower System

The Intelligent Depower System (IDS) provides an amazing level of control with minimum rider effort and input. IDS is a simplified bridle and control system exclusive to Cabrinha. IDS produces virtually no bar pressure while delivering precise control of the steering and power of your kite.

IDS is so intuitive that it seamlessly provides 2 stages of depower. Interactive Depower on Demand while riding, and stage 2 Depower method to land your kite. Stage 2 Depower functions similar to a 5th line system, but without the complexity of the unnecessary 5th line. Our IDS equipped kites use only 4 lines for a simple, uncluttered method of control and security. Additionally, the IDS bridle maintains all of the instant relaunch functionality the Cabrinha kites are famous for.
