I'm a happy owner of a full quiver of cabrinha kites ( 9 & 15 convert and a 12 Omega ), and i know that kites get released once a year so is not secret that cabrinha crew is working in new models as we speak.... but if the forum start censoring what get shown or "released by mistake" from manufactures as it happened with a leak pdf for the new Xbow then we will kill this forum....

As far as i'm concerned i will change my 12m omega next year regardless and i would like to know as soon as possible what the cabrinha crew is thinking to improve... so bring on more "leak press releases" and paparazzi kite photos

Cabrinha should develop on the graphic aspect .... its becoming too much splash coincident styled ... no red line

Now these photos might not be in the range of spy photos but still, consider them to be. Does it really matter if they release detailed photos of it? Sure it might give a hint to what is coming and the graphics of it but it does not say anything about how the kite handles. It might not create that hype when the PR guys hit the forums etc so the marketing aspect could get a tougher deal. But I do not think it takes away anything from the stoke of trying a new model, btw. trying a kite before buying should be very much on top of every list regardless if it has rasta colors or not.
So my opinion is; give me photos and videos, it sparks a interest but it all comes down to how the kite handles in MY opinion.

Cabrinha kites look awesome, very smooth style of design, except for the first xbow.
And they will continue to look awesome as long as they keep the original C on it :D

So far i only had 1 problem on my 2008 cabrinha kites. An override 2 sleeve has worn out after half year of use. Cost me 4 bucks.
Bridles, pulleys, kite finish, everything still loooks great. Cabrinha is doing really well this year.
