Includes: kite and kite bag

Wildcard color: As part of Cabrinha's commitment to reducing environmental impact they decided to utilize all materials by making kites/wings in unique colorways - the Wildcards. Wildcards are limited in quantity and availability. Designs will be updated throughout the year. Purchasing the Wildcards will not only give you a very unique kite/wing but has the added bonus of helping the environment by ensuring as much material as possible is put to use.

03S Cabrinha Switchblade

PERFORMANCE FREERIDE / BIG AIR

The kite that spawned the freeride revolution of kitesurfing and opened up the doors to many new kiters around the world moves into its 16th year and the next step of evolution to this incredibly versatile design.

The introduction of the Hybrid Frame and HTD Lite materials has increased not only the range of one of the most adaptable kites in the industry, but also, it’s performance. Through the lighter frame and strategically placed materials, the kite is now quicker to respond to rider input allowing for not only increased maneuverability in lighter winds, but also control and responsiveness in higher winds.

The new direct bridle with its low drag materials also help move this kite into an all new realm of performance.

 

 

DESIGN PROFILE
5 Strut, Hybrid design, Fusion wing tip shape, Draft forward profile

 

 

Key Features 

  • NEW: Refined lightweight canopy design for reduced weight and reactive performance

  • NEW: Static low elongation bridle for improved reactive feel

  • NEW: Sprint 3.0

  • NEW: Ultralite bladders for an overall lighter weight kite

  • NEW: Trailing edge EVA rigidity battens

  • Nano Ripstop Canopy: durability, stability and responsiveness

  • HTD for enhanced arc stability and improved handling characteristics

  • HTD Hybrid Frame.

  • NEW: Durable TPU Leading edge bumpers

 

 

Technology

THE BENCHMARK
The benchmark in durability, stability and responsiveness.

 

REFINED SIMPLICITY
An all new redesigned and balanced bridle with no pulleys gives a lighter feeling faster turning and more responsive kite, allowing for a wider range of users and also control for jumping.

 

ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE
The most versatile kite in the industry, allows for use in the widest range of conditions and variety of riding styles.

 

UP IN THE AIR
The 5 strut stable platform allows for stability in higher winds, and the wide arc allows for increased glide.

 

HIGH POINTING
The unique profile of the canopy allows for effortless upwind performance.

 

IT'S IN THE SWEEP
More sweep allows for not only increased range, but also easy relaunch, especially in lighter winds.

 

HYBRID FRAME
The perfect fusion of materials. A combination of High Tenacity Dacron  (HTD) &  HTD Lite blends together giving the kite the support it needs, but with increased response.

 

HIGH TENACITY DACRON
Specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp oriented using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite/wing with a more efficient and accurate airfoil in flight.

 

HTD LITE
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.

 

HTD HYBRID FRAME
The Frame is the basis on which a kite is built.  Utilizing a fusion of the two HTD materials as well as a reduced weight throughout the trailing edge, the Hybrid Frame provides the response and durability needed to take your kiting to an all-new level.

 

SPRINT 3.0
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.

 

BULLET PROOF BUMPERS
Bulletproof bumpers - These new Durable TPU bumpers are strong, lightweight and durable. They crossover protecting the canopy to LE sewing. A new manufacturing process helps with abrasion when the kite is resting on a hard surface.
