For a rider who wants unrivalled predictability, unmatched versatility and uncompromising high end performance and quality. Whether you’re boosting big air, throwing down technical tricks, or simply out for a fun session on your own terms, the Cabrinha Switchblade provides the ultimate kiting experience.
World Titles, World Records, Podium topping, all on a stock production kite that has also brought so many people not only into the sport, but given the perfect platform to evolve, improve and push their own boundaries of what they thought possible.
For 2022 Cabrinha have given the Switchblade a further performance boost. The redesigned and rebalanced bridle gives the option to not only increase the turning speed, but also lighten up the feel of the kite. A lighter faster kite not only extends the reach of this amazing product to different riders, but also allows for faster steering and control for jumping. The five strut stable frame of the Switchblade really comes into its own in the higher wind ranges. Here the legendary boost and hangtime of the Switchblade really shines.
What's most amazing about the Switchblade is that all this performance comes in one of the easiest to use packages. Its balance and power delivery make this kite light to the touch and simple to fly. Kite loops, handle passes, and rail slides are the kinds of things the Switchblade calls routine. When hooked in, the Switchblade has the ability to tame gusts with its high depower capabilities and proven security function.
Whether you are working on your freestyle game or testing your limits in boosting incredible air, the Switchblade will deliver with a class of predictability and reliability that can not be found anywhere else.

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.
