The revolver is back in gunmetal color. Think it said cuben fiber in there.. Only 12m size.
The bar is brand new with orange/blue and green color scheme.. not adjustable but they will introduce a new size, 35 cm..
The switchblades comes only in solid colors with a less is more attitude. No more printed material but ghost flames silkscreened on. Only small cabrinha logo on the struts..
Crossbow is considered THE freeriding kite. Taking out velocity.. same design as last year without printed material.
Chaos comes in a super transparent printed material. You can see the bladders on the inside..
They will re-introduce mutant boards and limit their TT and Surf selection since the mutant does it all.
I saw one kite where the struts were sown on top of the canopy, no one pump..
New snowkite foil is in the pipeline..
all bladders are 1,6mm thick for durability..
Electric pump included on all kites....

It said 200% depower all over the catalog so maybe a new bridle somewhere..


Okay, you had me until kite with struts on the outside. Except now I'm wondering if that would actually work.

EDIT: and a transparent skeleton kite would be RAD.

Maybe it was the transparency of the kite that made it look like the struts were on the outside.
I only got a glimpse...

I have recently seen it.

Ridelow must be looking at a 2006 brochure because its not even remotely close. Did they say they were bringing back the Blacktip too?!

I cant post info but i'm looking forward to hearing the reviews on the new gear in a few months.

Integrated LED tips are not as futuristic as it might seem:

Actual Cabrinha 2014 Kite spotted at the end of this video !

Maybe a drifter. Not sure about the bar but the Y is definitely lower than on the actual bars.

We can also see this low Y on Alby's bar on the photos on this page :

That low Y looks like the 2010 Pro Kit fitted to the kite.
