anybody know more about the new Cabrinha Moto coming out soon?
I heared that it will be a three strut delta shape replacing the Radar and be more performance oriented than its predecessor.
Seems to be some sort of Naish Pivot or North/Duotone Evo lookalike maybe?
Saw one on the beach in Hong Kong last month, not a delta, more like a lower aspect ratio FX. Sounds like a better alround three strut to replace the (very average) Radar.
Thx decay, that´s the kind of info I waited for. Then I will stick with the Pivot again.....
But who will need a detuned FX? the FX is already very userfriendly and you can even give it into the hands of an absolute beginner....
I don´t get the concept of the Moto.... again, same as the Radar who was a useless kite in the Cabrinha range. But we will see in a few weeks.
Will order my new Pivots now, as they are already available here
So I have a little inside scoop on the Moto from people I know at Cabrinha Like some of you said the launch isn't until Aug 14th so hopefully this doesn't get deleted, but it is built to be a high performance 3 strut kite like Saltwaterdog said, not a beginner kite like the Radar. To me it felt like a cross between Cabrinha's Switchblade/FX and even the Drifter a little. (yes I got to ride it!!!) It has more power than the drifter and FX but turns fast like them (as a 3 strut kite as well) and has the jumping and hangtime of the switchblade. ( I rode a 9m when it was blowing at 20-25) The speed actually caught me a little off guard it was so fast. From what I have heard on the inside Cabrinha isn't going to have a beginner specific kite replacing the Radar. I think people who like the Nexus, Bandit etc would like this kite... I agree droffats, not sure what Cabrinha is planning on doing for beginner kites, maybe nothing, but seems like most schools don't use beginner kites anymore
