Surf / Freestyle Surf
The chosen kite for kitesurfers who love to ride waves and strapless surf freestyle!
With its ability to engage and disengage its power on command the 2019 Cabrinha Drifter can deliver all the power you need when catching a wave but while surfing, you often want the kite almost disappear whilst you surf under your own power. It's in these moments of pure surfing that you require a kite that can ‘drift’ down the line with you in a stable and predictable way.
Thanks to a combination of technologies such as the Slackline Drift and the Onshore/Offshore settings that help make the Drifter from Cabrinha a world renowned high-performance surf kite.
Pure Profile Panels: Providing Cabrinha's renowned stability, by strategically placing panels the design team have managed to double the aerodynamic profile for the foremost curvature control meaning the kite can fly much faster in the sky which in turn allows it to perform efficiently in a wider array of kiting disciplines!
Onshore / Offshore: Customizable settings designed to optimize performance based on wind direction. Offshore facilitates better upwind ability which allows for easier cutbacks in offshore wind. Whilst the onshore setting provides for the maximum amount of “drift” as well as tighter turning.
Slackline Drift: The ability to park itself and stay aloft longer when the lines go slack so you can focus entirely on riding the wave.
High Tenacity Dacron: Specifically manufactured by Cabrinha for inflatable kites, by developing the dacron using ultra-high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count, the design team have created a product that actively combats elongation particularly under the high pressures endured by a kitesurfing kite, resulting in a more accurate shape with less deformation that rival products
Skeletal Frame: Designed to work in unison with the Pure Profile Panels, this framework structure maintains that the kite remains in its true shape once inflated, even through the most turbulent of conditions to reduce the effects of deformation and continue to provide excellent de-power. This technology also provides the kite with a great ability to recover if stalled by ensuring the kite can't fold in upon itself. Furthermore the inflatable structure also reduces the amount of bridling necesscary for stability as well as improving safety by increasing flotation in the water and enabling easier re-launch.
Volae Materials: An exclusive line of high-quality woven fabrics designed specifically for kitesurfing. The Volae materials are made with accuracy and consistency and are guaranteed for every kite Cabrinha make. 2DR Double Ripstop material is designed to provide a lightweight, yet durable, canopy with extremely low stretch properties. This translates into a kite with the ability to lock in its intended shape, while remaining ultra-reactive to rider input.
1X Security: Upon activation of 1X’s single line flagging system the power of a kite is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land.
Sprint System w/Airlock: The Sprint inflation systems is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite inflated and deflated quickly. The enlarged Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump requires no special adapters.
Dynamic Arc: Dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes, one shape while flying, and another shape while resting on the water for an easier relaunch.
Power Control: Every Cabrinha kite comes with a simple, user adjustable way to choose the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pigtail” connector has three power positions you can connect to, allowing the rider to customize their ride.
