:02 Cabrinha Drifter Features
NEW Ceramic Pulley
Made from Zirconia, the new ceramic pulley provides the ultimate in simplicity, safety and impact resistance with reduced wear characteristics.
Zirconia (ZrO2 or Zirconium Oxide) is known for its extreme strength and ability to withstand high heats and abrasion, Zirconia is the perfect material for the new Ceramic Pulleys. With no moving parts and built in safety, the new Cabrinha Ceramic Pulley is the next evolutionary step from the Cab Design Works team.
Onshore and Offshore Conditions Settings
Choose between 2 Leading Edge options to optimise performance in a wide spectrum of conditions. The Onshore setting provides a maximum amount of drift and tighter turning. The Offshore setting facilitates better upwind ability allowing for easier cutbacks in offshore wind.
The secret behind every Drifter that has become iconic in the industry. Focus on the wave, while your kite ‘Drifts’ effortlessly down the line.
Like with any Cabrinha kite, the Drifter comes packed with features to give you freedom to push your limits, whether in 1 foot or 10 foot waves.
Rapid Power Control
No wave is the same, and the on demand rapid depower and power of the Drifter allows you to stay in the right place, or get to where you need to be.
- Great Pop for Strapless Freestyle Tricks
- Fast Power and Depower Response
Direct and Responsive Steering Input and Feedback
Bar input immediately translates into kite adjustment.
High Tenacity Dacron
Cabrinha's Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp orientated using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under the high inflation pressures. Lower elongation make for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.
Nano Ripstop Canopy
The benchmark in durability, stability and responsiveness. A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the kite's design properties are supported by a stable and reactive kite material. Nano Ripstop does just that.
- Heavy Duty Closing Seam Construction
Strategic Canopy Reinforcements
Reinforcements have been added in high stress areas.
Pure Profile Panels
Strategically placed panels allow for a seamless and smooth airflow over the most important area of the flying surface, creating an efficient and true to design profile that no others can match.
