I have about 50 hours on the new FX and at least on the new "freestyle" setting it has more slack and is more dedicated to unhooked freestyle than the 2018 model. Definitely a different feel than the Moto which I've rode at the dealer meeting. Only rode the 12m and 14m sizes on a foil since winds were light then.

if you want a freestyle kite then get a proper C kite, chaos wasnt bad but i think its not going to be on 2019 lineup...fx was way too fast for freestyle

I was riding the Chaos for 2018, the 2019 FX is slower on the freestyle setting. It'll stay parked nice and feels more like a true C

So if the FX is pushed more towards Freestyle what changes did they do to the Switchblade if not only the colors as it happened in the last 3 years. I hope it is not too much "top secret".....

After reading this, it sounds like that Cabrinha is coming with a Core Nexus rival. Would be interesting

September 1st
Seems like that Cabrinha is in more trouble with the new North Kiteboarding brand than Duotone :wink:
Is Pat Goodman still on board or did he leave to the new North Kiteboarding as well?

Maybe Shriro Group has acquired rights to North Kites, plans to simply remodel and rebrand some Cabrinha and so capture a larger chunk of the market.

The 2019 Cabrinha MOTO Kite Only is a brand new kite from Cabrinha developed to meet the emerging needs of kiteboarding's most influential trends; surf and foil. Finding solid footing in the space between Cabrinha's most popular kites, the FX, the Switchblade, the Drifter, and the Contra, the Moto and Moto XO stands in the center of the performance freeride/crossover range. With a more upright orientation, a more closed arc, a reduced sweep, and a faster flying profile, the Moto is designed to fly fast, turn fast, and deliver more immediate power and depower. The Moto has an unprecedented number of "Pure Arc" Leading-edge segments combining with Cabrinha's Pure Profile canopy construction, thus creating a level of aerodynamic perfection never before seen in a kite. Featuring a 3 strut architecture, 24 LE segments, and no bridles, the Moto is a highly versatile kite that brings a new level of performance that bridges disciplines. Compared to the Switchblade, the Moto performs better in all areas except big air, so unless big air is your main focus, the Moto will raise your level of riding, especially when it comes to surfing and foiling.
There you go! On a side note the new bar appears to cost US$ 610.

No bridles? Unless it is a 5 line kite, not sure how it avoids being a C kite. Very curious to see the kite now.
