Re: Cabrinha Fireball vs slider rope.

So you have used Fireball extensively in comparison riding toeside, or this is just your opinion? It doesn't matter if he used it extensively, or not -- it is a matter of simple physics/mechanics. The slider moves to the hips, and fireball doesn't. And if you are constrained in how much the connect...

Re: Cabrinha Fireball vs slider rope.

The slider is way better. Fireball is all about marketing claiming it changes the pull directions etc. but really that's what a slider actually does, the Fireball is just a chickenloop you can't do unhooked tricks with So you have used Fireball extensively in comparison riding toeside, or this is j...

Olympics = good for manufacturers, bad for riders.
Fingers crossed it will never happen for kitesurfing.
Please elaborate.

If you don't want to trust your helmet, save $20 and don't buy one.

If safety is a concern to you and you feel you need to wear a helmet, buy a proper one.
Don't compromise on safety.

Re: Cabrinha fx 2018 - trimming setting on wingtip

You can see the pic I attached, all the kites you can see on the wingtip written: high bar preassure/slow turn vs low bar preassure/fast turn. You wrong in this case... Look at the pic below. All the kite the same as described.The lower scale describes turning speed. The hill scale describes bar pr...

Re: Cabrinha fx 2018 - trimming setting on wingtip

bizarre I would have tought the more closer to the wing tip you attach the kite the faster and easier you can make it turn 'cause you have better leverage hence the "lighter steering impulse" needed as mentionned on the kite A setting... I might have confused your comments. Just to be clear: Closer...

Re: 2016 switchblade and overdrive 1x trim lite bar

Also, Cabbie what is the deal with all the black smudge from the pu tubes from 2016 bars? (Maybe I missed your response from that thread also) Tight Lines Clew In Sand will cause wear on the SLF bungee security line for sure!!! If your SLF bungee security line has the thin sewn loop on the leash en...

Re: Cabrinha fx 2018 - trimming setting on wingtip

High bar pressure equates to less turning speed, because it takes more force from the rider to turn the bar, thus slower. You can't lift 50kg as fast as 25kg for instance. No, it is not the reason. Its not so hard to pull the bar when you set "high preassure bar". You feel more resistance but there...

Re: 2016 switchblade and overdrive 1x trim lite bar

The more cynical amongst us will see the 'easy to disassemble' improvements driven by the ability to change to the 'Fireball' rather than a service driven improvement! Wrong. If you ever replaced a 2015/2015 depower mainline, you would understand why the change was made. If you are going to get all...

Re: Anyone try the 2018 Drifter

?????How's the bar pressure, turning speed, and low end? sizes 9m/11m. Thanks in advance :thumb: I have been using the 2018 Cabrinha Drifter since early July. I have 12/9/7m . The most noticeable change from the previous 2017 model is the faster turning speed. To me, the low end and bar pressure se...
