When it comes to a kite which represents the pinnacle of performance and versatility, the Switchblade has no equal.
The greatest achievements in the sport of kitesurfing have been accomplished with an ‘off the shelf’ Switchblade, using the exact same kite which can be bought in stores.
This is not only a testament to the Switchblades uncompromising high end performance, but also to its reliability, predictability, durability and ease of use. In a commercial sense, it is a product offering rarely seen in any other professional sport and yet today, Cabrinha is still the only kite brand which has engineered such a feat.
Nano Ripstop is a 55 g/m2 material with a 3mm double rip stop pattern. This micro rip stop material in unison with the newly developed coating, has given us a 2X increase in the canopy’s tear strength. A smaller rip stop pattern increases the amount of “cells” in any given panel.
The exclusive new coating has been engineered to deliver unprecedented durabi-lity and stability, giving you a crispier feel and increased canopy rigidity creating a higher performing kite. The material’s stability is further locked into place by a process called Plasma treatment, unique to Cabrinha’s exclusive Nano Ripstop. Plasma treatment creates a hydrophilic surface for superior adhesion of the coating onto the unfinished greige material.
