Performance/ Freeride/ Crossover 

The Cabrinha Switchblade is back again with its uncompromising performance and durability. The Switchblade is best performance freeride kite out there making it great for riders of all levels in any environment. If you've never been on a Switchblade come out and demo one at our Waves Village Watersports Resort in the Outer Banks and see what you've been missing.

What we like about the Switchblade:

The Switchblade is the best all around kiteboarding kite out there from beginner to pro, everyone can use a Switchblade. Switchblades are very stable and predictable which makes it a great kite for beginners, and it's that same predictability that makes it such a good freestyle kite for the pros. Switchblades are also one of the easiest kites to relaunch when you crash a feature that we can all appreciate. The upwind ability of the Switchblade is also amazing making it easier when learning how to go upwind as well as when you are enjoying the boosting performance of the highest jumping kite on the market. Finally we like the Switchblades because they have massive amounts of low end power and great de-powerability making a much wider usable wind range per size than a lot of other kites, so much in fact that you can usually replace a 3 kite quiver from other kites with 2 Switchblades.

From Cabrinha:

5 Strut, Hybrid design, Fusion wing tip shape, Draft forward profile
The Switchblade is back, with over 13 years of design and composition refinements. Evolving into an icon, the Switchblade sits at the heart of our kite range where style and performance are seamlessly interwoven. Loved by many for its unique combination of smooth power delivery, unrivaled predictability and uncompromising high end performance, the Switchblade has redefined the notion of what a single kite can achieve. The five strut design has distinct segments that hold the canopy true to its intended shape, increasing the kite’s performance regardless of the wind conditions or angle of attack. The wide ranges of attack angles give the SB the incredibly powerful, predictable pull it is famous for. Unmatched in its power, performance and craftsmanship, the SB unapologetically creates the ultimate kiting experience.
