Cabrinha Contra Kite – 2023

PERFORMANCE LIGHTWIND / FREERIDE

SIZES: 13 / 15 / 17

The Cabrinha Contra revolutionized light wind kiteboarding 20 years ago, and has since become a staple in many riders’ quivers, serving as both a reliable all-purpose kite and a lifesaver in tough conditions.

This year, the Cabrinha Contra undergoes its biggest transformation yet. By incorporating HTD Lite and Lite Frame technology, we’ve managed to shed 15% of its weight, unlocking even greater performance potential in those critical winds.

Featuring a three-strut design, the Cabrinha Contra is the optimal choice for twin tip riding in light winds, and boasts unparalleled jumping capabilities among all the light wind kites we’ve ever created.

EFFORTLESS RELAUNCH
The Cabrinha Contra kite offers a sense of assurance in even the slightest wind conditions, allowing riders to experiment with tricks without the fear of needing to swim in.

REFINED LOWEND
The Cabrinha Contra kite excels in exceptional upwind performance, even in low wind conditions. Known as the ‘Session Saver,’ the Cabrinha Contra has become a popular choice for riders who refuse to miss a day of kitesurfing in light winds.

AGILE STEERING
Big kite, small kite feeling, thanks to the Cabrinha Contra’s agile and responsive steering and increased power delivery.

ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE
Regardless of your craft or expertise, the Cabrinha Contra’s performance attributes make it an essential kite for any enthusiast, not only to maximize water time but also to excel and advance.

LIGHT WIND OPTIMIZATION
The main focus in designing this kite was to ensure it can be ridden in threshold winds, where many other kites fail to perform.

PARK AND RIDE STABILITY
The rider can focus on their ride instead of the kite, thanks to the efficient control and power provided.

TECH SPECS

LITE FRAME
By combining the proven HTD Lite Dacron with a refined canopy design, the Lite Frame offers the lightest and most responsive kites yet. This lightweight frame enhances your product’s range and performance.

HTD LITE
HTD Lite marks the next evolutionary leap in inflatable structures. By integrating the superior elongation control of the proven HTD material with a superior reflex bias recovery and lighter weight construction, we have raised the response characteristics and range of the kite to new heights.

SPRINT 3.0

The Sprint 3.0 inflation system has been upgraded to enhance the air flow from the leading edge to the strut, thanks to its new straight and angled valves. This design prevents any kinking of the inflation tube, while also allowing for easy maintenance due to its secure fit.

ADVANCED STRUT TECHNOLOGY
The air flow and efficiency have been enhanced through the use of a more sophisticated airfoil design.
