2022 CABRINHA SWITCHBLADE PRODUCT REVIEW

When we talk about kite legacy, longevity and performance here at MACkite, the Switchblade is always at the top of the list. If you are just learning how to body drag, or practice your mega loops for the next KOTA, look no further: this is the kite for you. Coming into its 18th year on the market, the 2022 Switchblade arrives with some stellar performance upgrades. With the all new ceramic pulleys and a redesigned and rebalanced bridle system, the Switchblade has been updated to have the option for a faster turning speed and to lighten up the overall feel of the kite, making it not so grunty. This supercharged 5 strut is going to boost even higher because of the faster turning speed and add more control on the landings. The Switchblade paired with any of Cabrinha's Overdrive control bars make for a match made in heaven.

Changes that have been made to the 2022 Switchblade

  • New ceramic pulley system for increased safety and reduced wear and tear
  • Redesigned bridle configuration for a more engaged feel and faster steering
  • New canopy reinforcements for an even stronger kite
  • Larger "sweet spot" for those beginners trying their first jumps
  • Improved boosts and hangtime

02 Cabrinha Switchblade Kiteboarding KiteDETAILS

No kite has done more in the sport of kitesurfing than the Switchblade. World Titles, World Records, Podium topping, all on a stock production kite that has also brought so many people not only into the sport, but given the perfect platform to evolve, improve and push their own boundaries of what they thought possible.

For 02, Cabrinha has given the Switchblade a further performance boost. The redesigned and rebalanced bridle gives the option to not only increase the turning speed, but also lighten up the feel of the kite. A lighter faster kite not only extends the reach of this amazing product to different riders, but also allows for faster steering and control for jumping. The five strut stable frame of the Switchblade really comes into its own in the higher wind ranges. Here the legendary boost and hangtime of the Switchblade really shines.

TECH

HIGH TENACITY DACRONHIGH TENACITY DACRON

Cabrinha's Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp orientated using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under the high inflation pressures. Lower elongation make for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.

Nano Ripstop CanopyNANO RIPSTOP CANOPY

A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the kite's design properties are supported by a stable and reactive kite material. Nano Ripstop does just that.

NEW Ceramic Pulleys CERAMIC PULLEYS

Zirconia (ZrO2 or Zirconium Oxide) is known for its extreme strength and ability to withstand high heats and abrasion. Zirconia is the perfect material for the new Ceramic Pulleys. With no moving parts and built in safety, the new Cabrinha Ceramic Pulley is the next evolutionary step from the Cab Design Works team.
