The brand new Cabrinha FX 2015 kite, which is due to be released on 1st of March 2015, is designed for crossover freeride/freestyle kitesurfing. What does this mean? A kite that has unbridled performance capable of huge boost and massive kite loops but also offers unhooked performance.
Compared to the Switchblade, The Cabrinha FX 2015 kite will have a faster turning speed with increased bar response to excel at kite loops. The FX’s 3-strut design makes the kite not only lighter than the 5-strut Switchblade, but gives greater flexibility, which allows for a quicker kite response.
The Cabrinha FX kite has been designed with rider Nick Jacobsen and used by him to compete in the Redbull King of the air 2015.
We are really stoked about the release of the New Cabrinha FX kite and believe it will fill a gap in the freestyle/freeride crossover category.
