The 2017 Cabrinha Ace is a high-end high performance freeride/freestyle twin tip with a sturdy, lightweight, and responsive Paulownia wood core and Volcanic Basalt mineral fiber laminate construction. Does that sound fancy? It is! Paulownia is a grade-A wood coveted for its lightweight durability and no warp characteristics. Washed pure molten basalt rock is naturally toxin free and offers a high strength to weight ratio with resistance to vibration and great durability. Used together they create a unique flex characteristic specific to Cabrinha.
But materials are just the beginning of what makes the 2017 Cabrinha Ace such a sweet ride. The Ace features an aggressive quad concave transitioning to a quad V bottom which together with its fast rocker line offers excellent channeling of the water for acceleration and speed. Its core profiling lends efficient tip, tail, and torsion flex. Its double concave center gives it massive upwind performance. And, its Hex Flow Fins give it yet another measure of speed enhancement. Everything about this board screams ride me fast and ride me hard.
Updated from last year, the Ace has added some width in the tips for earlier planing, improved upwind performance, and increased pop. Can the Ace go big air? You bet. Can it rock your sickest kiteloops? Yes, it can. If you are an aggressive freeride/freestyle rider looking for a board to compliment your riding style, check it out!
