2019 Cabrinha FX Kite
Cabrinha hasn't messed with a good thing. With few changes from the previous model, FX lovers will definitely be happy with the 2019's performance.
The Cabrinha FX is Cabrinha's premier freestyle kite, but it's not the right kite for every rider. Check out the specs and Cabrinha's own description below to see if the FX fits your particular riding style.
IN CABRINHA'S WORDS...
The FX kite is specifically designed for riders that mix hooked and unhooked freestyle tricks, love jumping big and kiteloops.
The world of Freestyle / Crossover kiting has evolved into an exciting genre in our sport. Once a very narrow and technical discipline is now a mix of technical tricks and massive aerial maneuvers, both hooked-in and unhooked. For this you need a kite with the sensitivity and ‘slack’ when unhooked and the ability to boost a massive hooked-in kite loop.
The FX delivers on these two fronts and more with the power and handling to take your riding seriously.
