Cabrinha Mantis

There are a million new ways to fly. And the all new Mantis from Cabrinha is our most versatile way to take flight.

The Mantis is a streamlined, light weight but extremely rigid hand held wing that will power up any foilboard, surfboard, skate or snowboard. It has a simple inflated frame and single strut to keep things light and tight.

The Mantis is ideal for surfing. While fully depowered it will fly perfectly wherever you place it, or you can steer it through your turns with our unique front handle.

It’s stiffness allows you to power right through the gusts or take to the air.

Any way you want to fly it, the Mantis will deliver performance and predictability in an incredibly simple to use wing.

Mantis Wing Technology

  • Pure Profile Panels
    The strategically placed panels provide ultimate control over the aero-dynamic profiles in the kite, smooth and stable profile entry, improved overall kite efficiency, performance, and range. This allows you to fly through the sky faster, giving you a broader rang of performance. 

 

  • Widespan Handles
    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 high 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. The Dacron has a very firm and stable resin finish for a longer lifespan and excellent bias recovery. 

 

  • Skeletal Frame
    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 de-power. 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 reduced the amount of bridling required for stability. It also provides safety by providing some flotation on the water, and enables easy re-launch. 

 

  • Sprint Airlock
    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.
