HIGH EFFICIENCY FREERIDE

2016 may have been a bad year for some, but the scientists behind Cabrinah Kiteboarding have been busy developing a new kite for their lineup, for 2017 we welcome the APOLLO. Their performance high efficiency freeride kite.

SIZES: 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 12 / 14 / 16

THE DESIGN

The idea behind the APOLLO was to create a highly efficient free ride kite intended for huge floaty airs, foil boarding or racing. It has a flat, high aspect ratio that harnesses all the power the atmosphere has to offer and serve it up on a silver platter for your disposal. Its light weight and skeletal inflatable frame is able to hold its shape even in gustiest of winds. It undoubtedly has the attributes of a foil kite but has a distinct advantage of a much easier water relaunch, as it has an inflatable leading edge and struts.


FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Huge hangtime

  • Excellent wind range

  • High Aspect ratio

  • Optimal efficiency 

  • Fast flying performance

 

THE TECHNOLOGY

A-B settings from Cabrinah on their wing tips, allows the rider to change the bar pressure, kite flying position and de-power range of their kite. We recommend you try them both to find what setting works better for you.

2DR Ripstop; 5 years of testing and development have led to the high quality woven fabrics you can find on todays Cabrinah. The Volae materials have been custom made for kiteboarding unlike some of the generic sail cloth available on the market, making it the extremely low stretch and highly durable.

The Sprint Airlock Inflation system that comes standard with your Cabrinah is one of the fastest inflation systems on the market today. It features a large one way inflation valve, capable of transferring a large volume of air to your kite quickly, as well as a simple dump valve system to deflate it.

The Dynamic Arc design used by Cabrinah allow two shapes in the kite, one while in flight and the other when resting on the water. While in flight, the kite is supported by the front lines and bridle, creating its shape for intended use. While in the water the kite holds a dynamic arc, allowing for an easy and intuitive water relaunch.

The Pure Profile Panel technology developed for the switch blade, segments the canopy panels to allow a natural smooth arc shape while it in flight. The curvature has increased the aerodynamic control of the kite giving it a broader range of performance.

PRO SPAN technology on the canopy improves the relationship between the canopy and the "lifting canopy area". This ensures that the majority of the canopy is working in a lifting capacity increasing speed and upwind performance. Once in flight, the kite has decreased drag and becomes extremely efficient by having a more focused lifting area.
