If you aren't sold already, you're lying to yourself - this is an awesome kite, one that everyone on our staff loves to ride. That's a hard recommendation to come by in this market. Paired with either the Liquid Force Edge or the Liquid Force Drive, you've got a combination that can do anything from improve your early riding skills to destroying the competition.  

2019 Cabrinha Switchblade Kite

Where do we even begin with the Switchblade? Most renowned for its jumping abilities, its ease of use and it’s versatility. It sets the standard when it comes to all around kites. 
The Switchblade stands out as a kite that’s easy to learn on yet easy to progress once you're advanced. Characterized by a massive wind range and an autopilot like feel. Due to these traits, newer riders often opt for this kite to speed up their learning curve.
Advanced riders love the Switchblade. It's predictable, it's powerful and they can focus on the trick they are working on rather than the kite.
What makes the Switchblade stand out is its ability to cater to riders of all levels. It excels at all facets of the sport. If you ride waves, jump big air or want to perfect your wakestyle, the switchblade delivers. 

What we love

  • Ultimate performance in the widest range of conditions and variety of riding styles
  • Smooth power delivery
  • Predictable handling
  • Great upwind performance
  • Ridiculously high hang times
  • Distinctly sharp and precise turns
  • Easy relaunch

    Great package for beginner

    Posted by Jared Williams on 13th Jun 2018

    This was a great deal for someone just starting out. I got a 12m kite, and the overdrive bar which both work awesome. The harness I got was good, but I have decided to order another one too just so I have more than one option to use. The leash that came with this package was really short so I did end up buying a couple other longer leashes too. But overall this package as is was perfect for me as a beginner.

    This was a great deal on a starter package. It is a complete setup that should get you up and on the water quickly. The kite is amazingly maneuverable and very responsive.
