The 2017 Cabrinha Fireball Connection System is a friction-free ball and socket system that offers a clean nonbinding connection to the kite at the point where the power of your kite meets the power of your body. The Fireball promises to never come unhooked accidentally due to its built-in auto lock feature. It's a sleek new approach to this essential connection, designed specifically for kiteboarding. The Fireball Connection System features a two piece spinning stopper just above the connection system which prevents the quick release from being restricted by the bar in the event of an emergency and doubles as an easy way to unspin the center lines. The spinning stopper features a split screw assembly for easy servicing. The Fireball Connection System is an ideal solution to the shortcomings of the traditional hook and loop system that is geared to the 80% of kiters who rides strictly hooked.
