The Cabrinha FX

Sizes: 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 12 / 14

The all new FX kite effortlessly bridges the gap between freestyle and freeride to create the perfect crossover kite. The new three strut, highly responsive platform gives riders the much needed power for explosive acceleration and the perfect amount of boost for huge lofty airs. The expanded “C” shape arc allows for aggressive kiteloops with the ability to hit the zenith in time for a soft landing. Its positive and direct steering as well as its quick relaunch make it perfect for intermediate to advanced riders.

Why You’ll Love It

  • Explosive pop and great hang time
  • Great line slack for unhooked riding
  • Forward pull for kiteloops
  • Excellent for vertical boosts
  • Highly responsive and direct steering
  • Smooth power delivery
  • More drive than a traditional C shaped kite
  • Predictable handling
  • Quick recovery
  • Good upwind performance

The FX kite is designed for high performance freestyle riders needing a wider wind range and more versatility than a traditional “C” shaped kite. It’s perfectly suited to perform at the highest level of competition, but is also forgiving enough to make learning technical moves much less difficult. It’s a really fun kite to fly. There are a growing number of riders looking for a kite that has some attributes of a performance crossover kite but lean more toward a performance freestyle kite. The FX is a marriage between these two genres and fits in our range between the Chaos and the Switchblade. It has the drive and pull that you typically see in a freeride driven design, but it won’t hold you back when pushing to excel to a higher freestyle riding level. This kite flies through the window rather than pivoting so it will produce power all the way through a kite loop. It gets through a kite loop really quick and is able to fly uphill and recover before the rider gets close to the water.

Imagine taking the best qualities of the RPM and the Rebel and putting it in one kite, that is exactly what the Cabrinha FX is. Its a three strut kite that is unbelievably fast and smooth through loops. You will enjoy big airs with easy landings. The FX is incredibly easy to relaunch off the water, even with its flattened wing tips. This kite is the top performance kite on the market that is friendly for every level of riding.

All the feedback we’ve got from our riders have been insanely positive. The three most common qualities of the kite people noticed was that it pulls you upwind, it relaunches well, and its the quickest kite theyve been on. One of our 220 lb riders was able to cruise upwind and throw jumps in 13 kts of wind and a 136cm board. We promise you that if you’re into any sort of freestyle and have any interest in jumps or loops that you will love this kite. The Cabrinha FX is a perfect addition for their lineup
