Bridle steup for a Cabrinha BT 15.5 ?

forum for kitesurfers


Postby Guest » Thu Aug 22, 2002 1:53 pm

I have a Cabrinha BT 15.5 for which I would like to make a bridle system like the one I have on my Wipika AB 8.4.

This for two reasons:
1. The kite is VERY difficult to relaunch.
2. The kite takes a lot of effort to turn etc.

Therefore is there anyone out there who knows if Cabrinha produces bridles for their kites, or have the lengths needes so I don't have to spend hours fine tuning ?

Thanks in advance

No, Cabrinha has no bridles for its BT.
The idea is good. Copy the line lengh from a wipika 11.8 or 16.4....Anyway bridle size doens't matter too much. Your 15.5 has narrow tips, perhaps close to the size of your 8.4. Tip size is a important variable in bridle geometrie.
Of course the third line lengh has to be enough to not get in tension when you steer the kite.
Other good option to BT is put the tip battens as the 2002 model. It helps a lot.
Last year many had made this with good results. If you like the light forces on the bar, the go with the bridle, or both.
