The 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade is an all around, do anything, go anywhere, five strut hybrid kite that can take you from the starting line all the way to the highest levels of competition. Ever improving its famously stable and versatile flagship kite, Cabrinha continues to push the Switchblade toward perfection. In 2018, the designers at Cabrinha have made small yet significant refinements to the Switchblades profile and materials. Cabrinha's forward-thinking Pure Profile Panels allow its design to be tuned to a degree beyond its competitors, giving it smooth power delivery, tremendous hang time, precision predictability, superb upwind performance, and effortless relaunch, all in a kite that can handle a panoramic range of conditions.
Sizes: 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 14
This is what Cabrinha have to say:
For a rider who wants unrivaled predictability, unmatched versatility and uncompromising high-end performance and quality. Whether you’re boosting big air, throwing down technical tricks, or simply out for a fun session on your own terms, the SB provides the ultimate kiting experience.
The Cabrinha Switchblade once again proves why it is the worlds most loved kite. With Nick Jacobsen's new King of the Air title, his world record Woo jump of 28 meters, and his mind-bending jump from the top of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai (a height of 210 meters), it's clear that the Switchblade’s performance is legendary.
But what the competition hasn't been able to replicate is the Switchblade’s unrivaled combination of high performance and ease of use.
Whether you are working on your freestyle game or testing your limits of getting incredible air, the Switchblade will deliver with a class of predictability and reliability that can not be found anywhere else.
