Introduced in 2015 as an advanced freeride/freestyle wind-capturing beast, the Cabrinha FX went back to the drawing board and expands it's capabilities for 2018. Three "modes", found by adjusting the front bridle, allow the kite to morph into a totally different machine. Freeride mode gives the FX a bit more low-end power, allowing the rider to sheet in, sit back, and go - more akin to the Switchblade. Kiteloop mode is almost identical to the previous version of the FX - fast, nimble, and fun, with a great balance of power and agility. Freestyle mode is for those looking to get the most slack out of their kite, perfect for handlepasses.
The entire lineup of 2018 Cabrinha kites has been updated with High Tenacity Dacron, a canopy material specifically designed with inflated kite structures in mind. Slight modifications of each canopy design have been made to accommodate this new high-performance material, selected for many reasons. It has a tendency to return to it's original shape much faster than other dacron, making for a much "snappier" feel when turning the kite. Additionally, it shows much greater resistance to wear over time.
