CabrinhaCabrinha Switchblade Kite (Performance Freeride) - Complete Kit


The Switchblade is the go to kite for 80% of our riders. It is excellent for unhooked or hooked in riding in just about any conditions. Its reliability and predictability are two of the reasons why it excels as a high-performance kite as well as an all round universal ride kite. The Switchblade delivers a stable source of power which transfers into incredible pop. Once in the air, the kite will steer effortlessly with minimal input from the rider.

There is only one kite which has embodied the true spirit of kiteboarding for the last 8 years for its spot-on performance in such a wide range of conditions. The Switchblade humbly takes the title of the highest performance kite with the easiest handling. But we are not about to rest on our laurels. In 2014 the Switchblade gets an upgrade in handling with an all new bridling that provides an even more direct and precise steering. Changes in outline and profile ensure that the 2014 Switchblade delivers power on the low end and precise handling and control on the top end.

Kite Tech

Switchblade Kite Tech
Cabrinha's exclusive line of high quality woven fabrics are designed to exact specifications specifically for kitesurfing. Tested and developed for over 4 years, the Cabrinha Volae materials are made to deliver the lowest stretch and highest durability in their class. Cabrinah Kite Tech 2DR
Cabrinha Kite Tech Skeletal Frame All Cabrinha kites, inlcuding the Switchblade, 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 the Switchblade 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
Cabrinha Kite Tech Overdrive Mode Adjusts 8cm The Overdrve control bar can adjust a full 8 cm in length in seconds. Unlike other bars on the market, the Overdrive bar starts with a shorter bar length and can expand to the larger length if you wish. There is no reason to carry around all that extra bar if you prefer to ride on the standard setting. The 49 cm standar bar setting is great for smaller kites, or if you would like the kite to be less reactive. Easily switching the bar into the overdrive mode, the length changes a full 8cm to 57cm and immediately increases the turning speed of any kite large or small. Additionally, adjustment can be made on the water, if desired. EVA bar ends provide floatation for the entire control system.
Cabrinha's eternal quest for a simpler solution to control, handling and security, has produced the cleanest and most feature rich control system to date. The Overdrive 1X control and security system is a compact joystick with heaps of built in features:
  • 1X Security - Complete Kite Shut Down
  • Adjust Bar Length 8 CM in Seconds
  • Internalized Lines / Clutter Free
  • Depower On Demand
  • Removable Security Pin
  • Spinning Leash
  • Secondary Qr
  • Ergonomic Floating Bar Ends
  • Internal Swivel
