Already into its 3rd iteration, the Crosswing X3 sets a new standard in efficiency and on-demand power.
Detailed work has been done by Cabrinha's R&D team into the wing profile and new radial canopy panel layout to achieve their most high-performing and reactive wing to date.
Through an increased leading edge diameter with load distributing centre section construction, Cabrinha has created an exceptionally stiff framework, which is further enhanced by the X3's innovative double strut. This framework gives the rider the ultimate feeling in efficiency and performance both in the lighter winds, where pumping and efficiency is required, and also in higher winds where stability and control are greatly increased.
Strategic window placements with the combination of the double strut, allow for a wide field of view.
Whether you are boosting to new heights or simply relaxing into your ride, take advantage of all of the X3's new cutting edge technical attributes.

Crosswing X3 Technology
Rigid handles provide more direct rider input. They allow for precise trim and control with immediate input on the wing.
High Tenacity Dacron
Cabrinha's Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp oriented using ultra hight tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.
Provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in flight. The stable frame drives the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation and has excellent overall depower. The inflated leading edge introduces the laminar flow of air across the kite's Pure Profile panels, for a quick recovery if stalled and prevents the kite from folding on itself. The inflatable structure reduces the amount of bridling required for stability. It also provides safety by providing some flotation in the water, and enables easy relaunch.
The Sprint inflation system is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite inflated and deflated quickly. The enlarged Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump requires no special adapters. Once inflated, you can lock off each strut independently to keep your kite's rigid frame and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite. When the session is over, the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valve's large dump feature.
Nano Ripstop Canopy
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.
The Double Strut allows one inflated mini strut to support the canopy profile while the second "boom" strut is designed for precise ergonomics and predictable wing control.
