Cabrinha Drifter Kite 2022
Cabrinha Drifter Kite 2022
Kitemana’s choice strapless wave kite by CabrinhaThe Cabrinha Drifter 2022 has no need for introduction. In recent years, the Cabrinha Drifter has proven itself as the very best strapless wave kite on the market. And still there is no other kite that has been able to kick the Drifter from its throne in the field of wave, drift and strapless performance. The Drifter 2022 is the permanent choice of wave ride legend Keahi De Aboitiz and the best choice for anyone who loves foil / (strapless) wave riding.
The Cabrinha Drifter 2022 has everything you can expect from the best wave kite on the market: drift, stability, direct steering behavior and a fast relaunch. These characteristics also make the Drifter 2022 very suitable for beginning kitesurfers who have a little trouble making the first meters on a kiteboard. In addition, the Cabrinha Drifter 2022 can also be perfectly used for hydrofoil kitesurfing.
The fact that the Cabrinha Drifter is the best strapless wave kite on the market is partly due to its fast steering behavior and light pull through the turns. This means that when you send the Drifter from one side of the wind window to the other (to start your next turn) you will not be pulled super hard over your surfboard. This feature allows you to kitesurf with a lot of control without straps on your surfboard. Strapless wave riding gives you the one and only ultimate surfing feeling and that is exactly what the new Cabrinha Drifter 2022 has to offer!
Just like the other new 2022 kites from Cabrinha that use a pulley bridle system, the Drifter has a new ceramic pulley. Due to this upgrade, the pulley runs more smoothly over the bridle, making the Drifter feel more stable. Stability is what the Cabrinha kites are known for. This is due to the unique construction method of Cabrinha kites. Cabrinha combines Pure Profile Panels and Pure Arc to create a kite that is as round and aerodynamic as possible, making the kites super stable in the air. In addition, the Drifter is strongly built with Nano Ripstop and extra reinforcements at critical points to ensure that nothing stands in the way of pushing the limits. If you accidentally send the Drifter into the water, restarting is no problem. The Cabrinha Drifter is made in such a way that the relaunch is done super fast by pulling on one steering line.
Unique to the Drifter 2022 is that the kite has a special on- and offshore position to ensure that the Cabrinha Drifter always gives you the best performance in wavy conditions. The 'onshore' position gives you the most drift and faster steering behavior. With the 'offshore' setting, the Drifter has better upwind characteristics and makes cutbacks easier in offshore wind.
