Switchblade Overview 2013

There are very few cases in the world of kite design where high performance and ease of use collide. The Switchblade is just one of those rare cases. The Switchblade is the worlds premier wakestyle kite. Powering the likes of Andre Phillip to legendary status in his pursuit of core wakestyle riding. One of the elements that make this kite so perfect for wakestyle riding AND all round freestyle riding is its predictability. It has pitch perfect balance when riding unhooked and a light bar pressure when riding hooked in. The Switchblade has undergone a few strategic improvements in 2013 to enhance its efficiency and turning speed (especially in the larger sizes) without compromising the legendary “feel” that has made the Switchblade the world’s best selling kite model.

Kite Tech:
Skeletal Frame
All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. Skeletal frame technology allows us to make a lighter more durable kite by strategically placing the reinforcement weight materials into a framework that surrounds the lighter weight canopy materials.

Pump
Our new sprint pump and our all new airlock valve closes the loop on our sprint single point inflation system. the pump’s diaphragm has been improved For smoother pumping action and increased longevity. the sprint pump’s hose connection now mates perfectly with our all new exclusive airlock two way valve without the need For an adapter.

Airlock
The all new Airlock improves on the industry’s best inflation / deflation valve. The new Airlock completes our Sprint single point inflation system. The new one way valve allows for a higher volume of air to pass through it. Airlock 2 has a new coaxial type of hose attachment which now does not require an adapter to work with our new Sprint pump. Just attach the hose directly to the valve with a quick quarter turn.

Sprint Clamps
The Sprint clamps which restrict the flow of air out of the struts have been improved for a more positive closure.

Line Manager
This year we have included a simple to use line management tool. Each time you wind your lines onto the control bar you can attach the ends of the lines to the line manager in sequence. That way, when its time to reattach your lines they will be free of tangles. Setting up your lines has never been easier.

Bridle Guides
We have reduced the size and weight of the stainless steel bridle guide.
