SHORT STATIC BRIDLE
A short compact pulleyless bridle ensures the ultmate in control and stability as well as response.
The secret behind every Drifter hat has become iconic in the industry. Focus on the wave, while you kite ‘Drifts’ effortlessly down the line.
Like with any Cabrinha kite, the Drifter comes packed with features to give you freedom to push your limits, whether in 1 or 10 foot waves.
PURE PROFILE PANELS
Pure profile Panels – Strategically placed panels allow for a seamless and smooth airflow over the most important area of the flying surface, creating an efficient and true to design profile that no others can match.
RAPID POWER CONTROL
No wave is the same, and the on demand rapid depower and power of the Drifter allows you to stay in the right place, or get to where you need to be.
With the Lite Frame, we’ve combined the benefits of the trusted HTD Lite Dacron with a refined canopy design, resulting in the lightest and most responsive kites to date. This lightweight frame significantly enhances the range and performance of your product, giving you an unparalleled kiteboarding experience.
HTD Lite marks the next significant advancement in inflatable structures. By merging the proven benefits of HTD material, which offers superior elongation control, with a lighter-weight construction and exceptional reflex bias recovery, we have created an innovative product that takes response characteristics and kite range to new heights.
The air flow from the leading edge to the strut experiences a significant boost with the major upgrade to the Sprint 3.0 inflation system. The introduction of straight and angled valves eliminates any kinking of the inflation tube and ensures easy maintenance through the secure fit design. The result is a smoother and more efficient inflation process, leading to a remarkable improvement in air flow from the leading edge to the strut.
BULLET PROOF BUMPERS
Introducing our latest innovation, the Bulletproof bumpers. Crafted from robust yet lightweight TPU material, these durable bumpers provide an all-around protective shield for your kite, safeguarding everything from the canopy to the LE sewing. Moreover, our state-of-the-art manufacturing process helps minimize abrasion when the kite is resting on hard surfaces, making it even more resilient and long-lasting.
