2017 Cabrinha Contra
In 2017 Cabrinha redesigned the Contra to improve the turning speed of the kite. There is a noticeable difference between the 2016 and 2017 Contra in terms of how quickly it turns. Cabrinha also added in an additional size to the Contra lineup, a 19m. The Contra is a perfect kite for lightwind for any style of riding, freeride, freestyle, wakestyle and foilboarding.
The Contra is Cabrinha's ultimate lightwind kite. There was no question in 2014 when Cabrinha rereleased the Contra that it had enough grunt to get even heavy riders upwind in very little wind. The two breakthroughs the Contra acheived was that it is easy to relaunch in almost no wind and that it is fast! Cabrinha created a short, pullyless bridle system so the rider is able to input direct feedback.
The Cabrinha Contra is one of the easiest to use lightwind kites on the market. You can park and ride the Contra without having to work it like other kites on the market. For a more in depth review of the 19m Contra check it out here
