Does anybody know if they went to 1 line safety? No mention of IDS.

The adjustable bar is sweet. I think that this new range will be solid, at least it looks nice. IDS was crap, one line safety is good. Looking to revise my kites (Currently RPMs). If they fly relatively quick, have decent low end and don't kill my arms, I say they're a win.

One thing Cab does really well is the valves. Rigging isn't always top of mind when buying kites. But my other kites can get start to cause some serious irritation when I pump them up and the valve keeps popping out or when I fold them and they take forever to deflate.

What does one gain by bar extension, other than one bar for multiple kites?

Smaller kite = smaller bar. Bigger kite = bigger bar. Turning speed is what makes the difference.

Got to hand it to Cabrinha for an innovative way to change bar sizes and on the fly no doubt. Well done boys...and girls.

Funny how I got all my dealer info today with all the new products and as a dealer, we are ALL asked to keep it offline until Cabrinha announces it in early August and yet here it is for everyone to see.

Oh well.

Zie germanz.. :roll:

Looks like You-love-it surf and sup store in Dusseldorf likes sharing, red wine, social media and sunset walks down the beach..
I would not be to stoked if I was the German distributor..

Where is that kite with the struts on the outside? Autozenith? Electric pump and free included kitefluffer on the beach?

Really glad to see that Cabrinha has an adjustable bar. It drives me crazy when companies try to get you to buy a bar for each kite. Come on ... the sports is expensive enough as it is.

One a side note, the Contra is really intriguing. Wonder how it will compare to other light wind kites on market?

Love the new look of the Switchblade!
