Cabrinha FX 2018
Cabrinha FX is definitely one of our store's favourite all-round freestyle kites. It boosts massive jumps, has a decent hang time and kiteloops like a dream! Cabrinha FX 2018 is the perfect kite for those looking for a more exiting ride and willing to progress beyond freeriding.
For 2018 Cabrinha has made some amazing changes to the FX. This includes 3 new trim settings for bridles:
- Freestyle - giving you more slack for unhooked tricks
- Kiteloop - for neater kiteloops with faster recovery so the kite catches you faster after a loop. This is also a default setting for the kite
- Freeride - a big-air and hang-time setting
Cabrinha has also used their new High Tenacity Dacron on the leading edge of the 2018 FX. This completely changes kite's behaviour when it's put through its paces. As you might have noticed, when the kite goes through a kite loop the leading edge tends to change its original shape. Cabrinha's HTD keeps the leading edge in shape no matter what you throw at the kite. This has massively improved kite's smoothness in the air which is easily noticeable even if you can't ride it side by side with the previous edition. We absolutely loved it!
For an open-c kite it's also extremely versatile. Of course the FX comes to its own when used with a twin-tip for massive boosts, kiteloops and unhooked moves. But it also works like a charm when combined with a foil board and strapless too. Especially if you're into surf freestyle. Designers at Cabrinha really outdone themselves this year too with some insanely cool designs - they look even better in the sky!
