Overview

The all new Contra is a featherweight cannon that delivers light wind fun like you’ve never had before. It has the muscle to get you up and riding when the winds are barely showing signs on the water. The ultra efficient profiles optimize the low end power production while allowing excellent depower on the top end.Maximizing performance in light winds the 3 micro struts improve aerodynamic performance using light weight materials with very low drag. The Contra delivers distinctly sharp and precise turning that makes generating power and speed a snap while maintaining the agility of a smaller kite.

Kite Tech


Contra Kite Tech
In 2014, Cabrinha upgraded their dedicated lightwind kite struts by reducing their size and creating struts that weigh less. Smaller struts mean less dacron and less TPU. Lighter weight equals higher efficiency and a lively more responsive kite. Cabrinha Kite Tech Slack Line Drift
Cabrinha Kite Tech Skeletal Frame All Cabrinha kites, inlcuding the contra, are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. Skeletal frame technology allows a lighter more durable kite by strategically placing the reinforcement weight materials into a framework that surrounds the lighter weight canopy materials. Cabrinha placed the most durable, 160 gsm Dacron material into a framework that locks in the intended shape. This creates the canopy shape and profile with a light weight yet highly durable 53 gsm polyester woven material.
A dynamic arc allows theCabrinha Contra kite to have two distinct arc shapes. It takes on one shape while flying and another shape while in resting mode on the water. The flying shape occurs as soon as the kite gets airborne and the front lines are under tension. This is the kite’s intended shape which is optimized for the intended usage. The arc shape is held in place by a simple set of bridling. The dynamic arc shape occurs when the kite is resting on the water in relaunch mode. The arc is allowed to open its span which orients the wingtips in a position to facilitate a super quick relaunch. Cabrinah Kite Tech Dynamic Arc
Cabrinah Kite Tech Single Point Inflation The Sprint Inflation System with Airlock is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite pumped up quickly. The large one-way Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump now requires no special adapters. Once inflated you can lock off each strut independently to keep your kite’s rigid frame, and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite. When the session is over the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valve’s large dump feature.
Every Cabrinha kite comes with a simple, adjustable way to choose the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions which you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. But the you can choose to create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the bar. Cabrinha Kite Tech Pig Tail Power Control System
