The Cabrinha Contra is perfect for any rider that wants to extend their riding into the lightwind arena with a responsive, lightwind kite.
Light wind used to be considered the archenemy of kiteboarding. That was until Cabrinha introduced the Contra light wind kite with its unmatched efficiency and performance combination. Every riding style and discipline now has a kite to bridge your riding into the light wind arena.
Cabrinha Contra 1 Strut (3m-11m):
The Contra 1 Strut has quickly garnered a reputation as one of the best kites folightwind freeriding and has proven a versatile addition to any kite quiver.
With its single strut design, this light and nimble kite allows the use of much smaller sizes to maximize foilboardings true potential. Featherweight control and amazing drift characteristics allow for low angles of attack while on foil, and the rear line tension increases steering impulse even when depowered.
This dynamic kite design will put an optimized Contra light wind kite in your hands whether you ride a twin tip, surfboard, or a foil board.
Contra 3-Strut (13m-17m):
The Contra’s light weight 3-strut hybrid design performs incredible things in what used to be known as the unrideable realm. A true light wind performer in any and all riding categories.
The Contra 3 Strut now benefits from years of refinement as the kite that first perfected light wind efficiency. The Contra is an ideal extension to any kite quiver. It performs like a small kite while it delivers the power of a much larger kite. This makes it a performer in any and all riding categories.
Cabrinha Contra Features include:
- Heavy duty closing seam construction
- Nano Ripstop Canopy, the benchmark in durability, stability and responsiveness
- High Tenacity Dacron for enhanced arc stability and improved handling charecteristics
- Strategic canopy reinforcements in the high stress areas
- Pure profile panels for efficient aerodynamics
- Agile and responsive steering for increased power delivery
- Refined low end performance for better upwind ability
- Effortless relaunch in the lightest of wind conditions
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.
Nano Ripstop Technology:
A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the kite’s design properties are supported by a stable and reactive kite material.
Nano Ripstop does just that.
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 Overdrive Trimlite Quickloop Control Bar:
The Quickloop Overdrive 1X Trimlite is a highly refined control system with universal compatibility. From its soft and ergonomic adjustable bar ends to its light weight cleat trim and 1X security system, the Quickloop Overdrive 1X Trimlite is a high performance and feature rich method of kite control. What makes the Quickloop Overdrive 1X superior to other systems is its accurate ergonomics and its well thought out form factor. The security system is intuitive, operates without effort and is integrated seamlessly into the design.
The 1X Overdrive Trimlite control system is designed for every rider from beginner to pro who uses an inflatable kite with a single line (1X) compatible method of security. Adjustable bar length and a cleat trim are a priority.
