Cabrinha Contra 17m '08 flying lines length?

Postby dimitrisGramma » Tue Jul 05, 2011 9:50 am

Hi guys,

Just bought a second hand Cabrinha Contra '08 17m for light wing conditions. Unfortunately I have to buy new lines (24m). However I am not sure if the specific kite and bar(08 IDS) uses the same length for front and back lines. I tried the manual but there is no such information.
Anybody with a Cabrinha Contra '08 either 17 or 14 meters (they both fly with the same bar) can answer my question?

Thanx

The 08 Contra (Contra 3) isn't an IDS kite - standard bar/line setup is the old Powerdrive 221 (or 2N1), which has pulleys on the bar.

Front and back lines are the same length.

Thanks for your reply Weetabix,

You are right! Its the Powerdrive 2N1 (with the pulleys) bar.
So I ll try to fly it with a set of same length lines.
