The Crossbow is an "Open Arc" freeride bow kite in the the Cabrinha range.

Designers goals

The Crossbow is a kite designed for freeriders that want a kite with a huge wind range. The Crossbow is designed to be suitable for a number of disciplines, be it big airs or racing. The Crossbow is the kite that offers the most power in the Cabrinha range.  Characteristics the designers were aiming for are: Good upwind ability, high max speed, large range and good performance in low wind conditions and old school big air.

Compared to the 2010 Crossbow the 2011 model has a beter low end, beter relaunch-ability, and the kite is more durable tue to the new seams used.

The 2011 IDS bar is designed so that you have more control over the kite and it's power thereby increasing safety.


cabrinha bar 2011The 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.
