The AV8 is designed for riders looking for an exceedingly efficient kite to foil with while also offering the attributes of a boost & hang time machine. The AV8 kite is a highly efficient 5 strut power source that can facilitate an incredibly high VMG (Velocity Made Good).
Its lean profiles and optimized AR deliver the highest level of performance in a light weight inflatable structure.
The AV8 flies upwind with speed and an incredibly rigid frame. When riding off the wind, the AV8’s power delivery is full and stable. The AV8's flat arc shape makes it ideal for huge lofty jumps combined with silky smooth landings.
Cabrinha AV8 Features include:
- High Tenacity Dacron for enhanced arc stability
- Ultimate performance in the widest range of conditions and variety of riding styles
- Smooth power delivery
- Predictable handling with superior stability and range
- Large sweet spot
- Great upwind performance
- Ridiculously high hang times
- Distinctly agile and light precision steering
- Stability in high wind conditions
- Powerful and efficient
Pure Profile Panels:
The strategically placed panels provide ultimate control over the aero-dynamic profiles in the kite.
Smooth and stable profile entry. Improved overall kite efficiency, performance, and range.
Faster flying through the sky giving you a broader range of performance.
2DR Double Ripstop:
Cabrinha's exclusive line of high-quality woven fabrics has been designed specifically for kitesurfing. The Volae materials are made with accuracy and consistency, and are guaranteed for every kite we make.
The 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.
Dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes.
The arc of the kite takes on one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water.
While resting on the water the arc opens up slightly to facilitate an easier relaunch.
1x Security System:
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.
High Tenacity Dacron:
Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp oriented using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under high inflation pressures.
Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.
Every Cabrinha kite comes with a simple, user adjustable way to choose the power level of the kite.
Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position.
However, the user 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 rider.
Provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in-flight. The stable frame drives the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation and has excellent overall de-power.
The inflated leading edge introduces the laminar flow of air across the kite’s Pure Profile panels, for a quick recovery if stalled and prevents the kite folding on itself.
The inflatable structure reduces the amount of bridling required for stability. It also provides safety by providing some flotation in the water, and enables easy re-launch.
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. 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.
Cabrinha AV8 Control Bar:
Designed for every rider from beginner to pro who uses an inflatable kite with a single line (1X) compatible method of security, the AV8 Quickloop Fixed 1X (Trimlite) is a highly refined control system with universal compatibility. From its soft and ergonomic bar ends to it’s light weight cleat trim with 4:1 race pulley system and 1X security system, the Quickloop Fixed 1X (Trimlite) is a high performance and feature rich method of kite control. The 4:1 race pulley allows the rider to micro adjust and effortlessly trim under maximum load while the extended trim tail also enables the rider to operate the trim without compromising speed, trajectory or body position.
Line lengths can be easily switched between 22m, 19m and 16m long. Adjusting these configurations enable the rider to conveniently customise the power delivery and sweep arc of the kite during flight, allowing optimal performance in a wide wind range.
