2017 Cabrinha Switchblade Kitesurfing Kite
Cabrinha Switchblade is also well known for the best on the market value retention. One of the main reasons behind it, apart for amazing flying characteristics is its bullet-proof construction. Well sort of, we've never shot at our kites but we do use them for teaching and we can vouch for their top end build quality. If you want a kite that will survive the beating, Switchblade is your best buddy!
Now for the changes since 2016... there haven't been too many! And that's a really good thing. Switchblade is already the best selling kite in the world. A lot of riders love the way it behaves so making drastic changes would be a big no-no. Cabrinha has however reinforced the kite by adding separate panels to the canopy ensuring that it will last even longer. They have also changed the bridals to non-stretchy ones and covered clips on the struts inflation pipes in rubber. They look far more solid and you don't have to dry them. Small things. Oh, and we love the new bag the 2017 Switchblade comes with. It's larger then previous one, fully waterproof and really looks like a premium product.
If you have any questions about the new Switchblade give us a call and we're always happy to help and advise.
