Kite

Freestyle/Freeride kite by Cabrinha. The bow-like outline gives the Switchblade it's freeride characteristics.

Designer Goals

This is the unhooked freestyle/wakestyle kite by Cabrinha. The designers also gave the kite demo allround characteristics by making the shape bow-like. It has low bar pressure for unhooked tricks and easy handling. Compared to the previous model the turning circle was improved. If you like to hit the kickers and the sliders the Switchblade might just be your kite.  According to the designers the Switchblade is also suitable for snow action.

Bar

cabrinha 2011 barThe Powerdrive IDS control system starts with an ergonomic design, which allows precise steering and power input to your kite.
Secondly, by adding our new Recoil system to the Internalized IDS Landing Line we have reduced the external clutter often found on other bars. 
The final result is a streamlined and user-friendly control system that works well for both the first time kiter and the seasoned pro.

Hi, here a user reaction from our facebook!

"why not. respons on steering might nog be as well as with a wide bar but is should work. before riding do a check if you linelengts are ok, so the steering lines are nog to tight or to loose. than you should b ok."
