I watched the video and I'm intrigued - even on the beach in a controlled environment, that system looks really fiddly to try to re-assemble. It also looks like its possible to reassemble incorrectly - but I am happy to be corrected on that.

I don't have anything against cabrinha, I think they've been great innovators over the years - but yikes, I just can't imagine dealing with that thing in challenging conditions.

Not trying to plug North, but you can reassemble the iron heart in a second with your eyes closed....

What am I missing?

Hi -

I can assure you I'm a genuinely interested party here. Also happy to admit that I have no experience with cab kites, so may well just be missing the point.

The part I didn't get was if you released the kite to its landing line in a deep water situation (which granted is a rare occurence). In this case it seems that you need two hands fully engaged to reassemble the system, plus a way of taking the slack out of the landing line.

In the video this is done by standing on the landing line on the beach. I guess at sea, you would need to wrap your feet round it, or take slack out before reassembling? Sounded tricky to me, thats all.

I may well be missing the point, not trolling.

Best regards
Jono

The wind would most likely provide enough resistance
to keep your lines in order while allowing you to reload the release properly.

If there was not enough wind, you probably would not have needed
(in most cases) to have deployed the safety system(s). Make sense?

I agree. I'm personally buying 2 cab kites this week, and one of the reasons I'm not even considering the 2012 kites (besides the crazy prices, $2000 for one kite is ridiculous) is because of the bar. Way too complicated and too many unnecessary parts to have to deal with.

Hi Marc,

Thanks for the response.

I'm sure theres a lot of good stuff about the new design, maybe some more video in action in the water would be a good way of showing off its full potential. I'd be interested.

Best regards
Jono

Can anyone answer why the 2012 Cabrinha website site has an 18 Meter Crossbow LW listed in the wind range chart and not listed as available under the Crossbow page? Are they going to offer an 18 CB LW or not? I have a quiver of Cabs, just looking to improve the LW performance of the 2011 16 CB I have now. Any inside info out there???
