2018 Cabrinha Ace Carbon Kiteboard
New for 2018, the Ace Carbon features structural carbon to increase the stiffness, response, and pop - all while dramatically reducing the swingweight. The Cabrinha Ace is shaped for the rider looking for an all-around freeride board with no compromise - excellent upwind-ability, paired with a nice and smooth progressive flex and efficient channeling. All of Cabrinha's 2018 boards feature ABS rails to keep the board water-tight, even after years of use and abuse. If you're into big air, smooth landings, and a wide range of performance, look straight to the Ace.
What Cabrinha has to say about the 2018 Ace Carbon
The Ace is our most versatile performance twin tip to date. While designed to excel in the performance Freestyle arena, the Ace is also perfectly comfortable boosting huge airs or throwing powered kiteloops. Its fast rocker line allows for explosive bursts of speed leading up to your tricks. It has great edge hold, amazing pop, a low spin weight, and it makes predictably smooth landings. The quad concave to quad V-bottom shape, and an advanced, lightweight, freestyle composition, make the Ace the pinnacle freeride/freestyle performance board.
- Exclusive use of structural carbon
- Stiff flex patter for a rapid response & explosive pop
- Tough, lightweight & responsive carbon construction
- Dynamic pop & low spin weight
- Early planing lift and reliable edge hold
- Maximum upwind drive and grip
Medium rocker boards find the perfect balance between high rocker high performance and flat light wind rockers making the boards great all around boards with lengthened turning radius. Found on the Ace Carbon, Ace wood, XO and Spectrum.
For those who ride fast and want the board to react quickly. A stiff flex pattern ensures a powerful energy transfer so the board will pop off the water and maintain control at fast speeds.
Paulownia Wood Core
We use a premium “A-grade” Paulownia wood core which is vertically laminated to optimize strength, reduce weight and allow the board to flex more naturally and freely. Found in all 2018 models.
Basalt is a volcanic mineral fiber which offers vibration resistance and durability while maintaining a high strength to weight ratio. Washed pure molten basalt rock is absent of toxic additives. The combination of wood core with basalt laminate provides a flex characteristic, unique to Cabrinha.
Customized double 45 degree bias Carbon Fiber is a lightweight and durable laminate that maximizes performance by stiffening the flex pattern for increased response and explosive pop.
Core profiling is the most efficient way to control tip, tail and torsional flex. Tapered raised rails control the torsional stiffness and enhances flex control while keeping the board weight to a minimum. Freeride boards benefit the most from the technology with a substantial increase in rebound.
ABS is a tough hard wearing composite material which bonds very well to epoxy. This is used during the lay-up process ensuring a smooth, durable and consistent ride. All twin tip rails and insert blocks are made from ABS material.
