Get more days on the water with the Contra three strut lightwind kite. Designed to maximize power production in light winds, while ensuring effortless power control from our trademark depower-on-demand.
The Contra is able to execute sharp and precise turning. It has the power of a larger kite while maintaining the finesse of a smaller kite. Tuned to deliver the type of performance that will widen the scope of what you can do in light winds, the Contra is the perfect kite to extend your game into the lightwind arena.
2016 Contra Features & Benefits:
The perfect lightwind extension to your quiver
Easy park and ride allows even advanced freestyle tricks in lightwind
Featherweight control ensures less work for a nimble, light in the hand effect
Works well with any board in your quiver
Easy relaunch so you’re not left downwind
2016 Kite Tech
A dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes, one optimized to keep the kite's intended shape while in flight and the other for when the kite is resting on the water waiting to be relaunched. While on the water the dynamic arc opens the span of the kite and orients the wingtips in a position to allow a super quick relaunch.
All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a skeletal frame foundation. Skeletal frame technology allows us to make a lighter more durable kite by strategically placing the reinforcement weight materials into a framework that surrounds the lighter weight canopy
Developed specifically for kitesurfing. Highly durable and low stretch in warp and weft. Excellent recovery on the bias. All Cabrinha kites are 100% 2DR Double Ripstop.
The 1X is not a depower system, it is a full blown shut down system. The 1X relies on only one line to immediately shut down the power of the kite whether it be on land or water in all wind conditions.
Allows you to quickly adjust the power level of your kite by the use of each rear line “pig tail” connector. Each rear line has three power positions: the middle being the factory recommended position, the knot closest to the kite giving more power, and the knot furthest from the kite which will give the least amount of power.
The Sprint Inflation System with Airlock is the fastest and easiest way to pump up your kite. The large one-way Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump now requires no special adapters. When the session is over, the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valve’s large dump feature.
This season the position of the A & B settings have been updated and completely change the way a kite flies. These options allow you to customize the feedback and bar pressure, adjust where the kite sits in the window, and balance the power/ de-power range of the kite.
A = The lightest bar pressure and lightest steering initiation.
B = Much more feedback, more bar pressure, shortened depower, and more steering impulse to know where the kite is.
