When it comes to versatility and value the Convert IDS can not be beat. Created from the DNA of the Cabrinha top line of kites, the Convert IDS is designed to deliver the widest range of use and easiest handling. Weve put control, handling, security and relaunch at the top of the performance brief while putting value at the top of the price position target.
The Convert carries with it many of the standard features found in our pro kites such as our unique Intelligent Depower System (IDS). Our Sprint single point inflation system. The streamline but feature rich Powerdrive IDS control system. And Overslide IDS. This makes the Convert IDS the best value in kiteboarding when compared feature to feature with other brands.
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 an Absolute Depower method to land your kite. Absolute 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.
Features: 5th line function with only 4 lines Depower on Demand: 1st Stage of Depower Absolute Depower: 2nd Stage of Depower Improved, direct steering. No pulleys on control bar. Enhanced Control System Instant Relaunch Sprint
The Sprint* inflation system is a simple to use feature to quickly inflate your kite to an even pressure. The Sprint system uses a single inflation point to connect your high volume, two way Cabrinha pump. As you pump your kite with air, all struts and your leading edge inflate quickly and simultaneously to the desired pressure. The supplied leash pump and threaded valve connection keeps your kite under control even when pumping up directly in the wind.
Once the kite is pumped you can choose to clip off, or isolate the air contained in the struts. This way if you damage a strut while in use, the rest of the kite will continue to maintain its pressure. At the end of the session you can choose to deflate your kite completely by disengaging the strut air clips, or you can keep your struts inflated and put your kite away rolled up so that the next session will take just minutes to set up.
