Cabrinha: Switchblade vs Crossbow.

Postby cometa » Wed Jul 30, 2008 4:28 pm

Thinking about getting a Cabrinha kite with the IDS. What are the pros and cons of Switchblade vs Crossbow? My riding style is mostly freeride for now, but always want to learn new things.

Havent tried the Switchblade, but got the Crossbow IDS 13m2 this week, and I love it already. For freeride, it is just sweet :)

If you wish to unhook regularly then go the SB IDS. It is simply without fault and will improve your kiting very quickly.
