The 2015 Cabrinha Switchblade celebrates its 10th anniversary and ten years of refinement to be held as the ultimate crossover/freeride kite. For 2015 the Switchblade receives some minor tweaks including some minor canopy and bridle tweaks. Some of the goals this year were for a little lighter bar pressure, better steering, and to make it easier to ride in lighter winds with less stalling. Also to keep the traditional park and ride characteristic that has been synonymous with the Switchblade from the start. Allowing you to just dive the kite once and go, then just park it out on the horizon. The success of the Switchblade can be found in its uncommon blend of high performance and ease of use. The Switchblade will easily crossover from freeride, to freestyle, to surf on any given day. The common element in each of these riding styles is precise handling; and this is where the Switchblade shines. The Switchblade provides maximum control with a light bar touch. The Switchblade high performance profiles deliver the power needed in light winds and the ability to dump the power in strong winds. This gives the Switchblade the type of range needed to extend your sessions when the winds are up and down. The five strut design holds the canopy true to its shape regardless of the wind condition or angle of attack.
