About the Contra
The Contra is Cabrinha's lightwind kite with performance characteristics. The Contra is made to feel and respond similar to a Cabrinha Switchblade. They're made similar so that you would feel comfortable going between kites. The big difference between the two is that the Contra has 3 struts vs the Switchblade having 5 struts. New for 2017, Cabrinha redesigned the profile of the Contra making it turn quicker and have a broader wind range.
*** The 13m or 15m Contra is a perfect go-to kite for riders looking to comfortably ride in the 10 - 20 kt wind range. Like the Switchblade, it's easy to park and ride the Contra making it efficient to freeride and get upwind efficiently. Both sizes turn quick which makes it great for boosting. The Contra relaunches very well even in lightwinds.
