03S Cabrinha Contra Aether
PERFORMANCE LIGHTWIND / FREERIDE
There is something truly liberating and free when riding a Hydrofoil. This is further heightened when you are able to ride in winds that were not previously thought possible. Conditions where the water is still, and the only noise is the apparent wind in your ears as you glide across the ocean.
The Contra Aether has proven its self as a bench mark in the single strut kite realm. A kite that not only allows you explore these threshold winds, but also keeps you in control when the winds pick up, or you change your choice of board.
The single strut design and the use of the Hybrid Frame and HRD Lite materials, gives you an incredibly nimble and light kite to fly, allowing you to use much smaller sizes of product to maximize foil boardings true potential. Feather weight control and amazing drift characteristics allow you focus on your riding and not the kite.

Even in the lightest of wind conditions the Contra gives you the confidence to try tricks knowing any mishaps won't mean a swim in.
The Contra specializes in incredible upwind performance even in minimal wind speeds. Dubbed the 'Session Saver’ the Contra has become synonymous with light wind riding and a favorite with many who never want to miss a day of kitesurfing.
Big kite, small kite feeling, thanks to the Contra's agile and responsive steering and increased power delivery.
No matter what your craft or discipline, the Contra’s performance features make it a standard kite in every quiver, not only to maximise water time but to thrive and progress.
LIGHT WIND OPTIMIZATION
Designed with the main focus to be ridden in the threshold winds where most kites can't perform.
PARK AND RIDE STABILITY
Efficient control and power allows the rider to concentrate on their riding, not the kite.
The Lite Frame has the benefits of the proven HTD Lite Dacron along with a refined canopy design to provide the lightest most reactive kites to date. This light-weight frame increases the range and performance of your product.
The next evolutionary jump in inflatable structures is HTD Lite. Cabrinha took the superior benefits of the proven HTD material to which have superior elongation control and combined it with a superior reflex bias recovery and lighter weight construction to elevate the response characteristics and range of the kite.
The new Sprint 3.0 inflation system increases air flow from leading edge to the strut. The new straight and angled valves allow for no kinking of the inflation tube. It's secure fit design also allows for easy maintenance.
ADVANCED STRUT TECHNOLOGY
Refined airfoil shape for improved air flow and efficiency.
