Cabrinha Apollo Water Relaunchable SLE Kite >>
Sprint: The Sprint™* inflation system is a simple to use feature to quickly inflate your kite to an even pressure. The Sprint™ system uses a single inflation point to connect your high volume, two way Cabrinha pump. As you pump your kite with air, all struts and your leading edge inflate quickly and simultaneously to the desired pressure. The supplied leash pump and threaded valve connection keeps your kite under control even when pumping up directly in the wind.
Frame: Cabrinha kites are designed
and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. By placing the most durable,
160 gsm Dacron
Arc: A dynamic arc allows the
kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The kite takes on one shape while
flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water.
The flying shape occurs as soon as the kite gets airborne and the front lines are under tension. The flying shape is the kite’s intended shape which is optimized for the intended usage. The arc shape is held in place by a simple set of bridling.
Cabrinha Overdrive Quickoop with Recoil Control System:
The Cabrinha Apollo is a performance freeride kite designed to pull every bit of power out of the atmosphere and deliver it right into your hands. It is purpose built for kiteboarding, meaning that it has been designed from the ground up specifically for the sport of kiteboarding.
The Apollo is the ideal kite for foil boarding where the efficiency of the kite and foil work in perfect harmony.
The inflated skeletal frame of the kite sets it apart from a ram air kite in many ways. The skeletal frame provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in-flight.
In gusty winds, the inflated struts drive the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation. The inflated leading edge structure of the kite introduces the laminar flow of air across the kite’s Pure Profile panels, making it very stable even at low speeds. These inflation properties make the Apollo unbeatable as a light wind performance kite and incredibly accurate as a high wind kite.
It also goes without mention that an inflatable kite is much more reliable to relaunch, thereby making the Apollo much safer and much more fun to ride.
Wingtip Setting Options: Cabrinha offer multiple tuning options which completely change the way a kite flies. These options allow you to customize the feedback and bar pressure, adjust where the kite sits in the window, and balance the power / de-power range of the kite. Cabrinha highly recommends testing the different settings for yourself to find out what feels the best to you.
Power Control: Power Control settings quickly adjust the power level of the kite.
Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions which you can connect.
The middle position is the factory recommended position.
Create more power by connecting the knot
closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the
1x Control and Security System: The all new 1x™ control system with is all about connections. Without a doubt the most important piece of kiteboarding equipment is a control system with the ability to securely connect and dis-connect on demand. It shatters the status quo and sets an entirely new standard in design. From its functional form to its ergonomic geometry to its proven handling of security, the QuickLoop Overdrive control system raises the bar to a new untouchable height.
The Overdrive provides an amazing level of control with minimum rider effort and input.
Overdrive produces virtually no bar pressure while delivering precise control of the steering and power of your kite. Overdrive is so intuitive that it seamlessly provides 2 stages of depower. Interactive Depower on Demand while riding, and an Absolute Depower method to land your kite.
Absolute Depower functions similar to a 5th line system, but without the complexity of the unnecessary 5th line. Cabrinha Overdrive 1x equipped kites use only 4 lines for a simple, uncluttered method of control and security. Additionally, the bridle maintains all of the instant relaunch functionality the Cabrinha kites are famous for.
Cabrinha Apollo Main Features:
The Apollo's relaunch capability is so easy that your hands never have to leave the control system. By simply pointing the end of the control system towards the kite, the wing tip will rise off of the water and launch the kite into the sky. Unlike other relaunch methods, The Apollo allows you to decide when to launch the kite and which direction it goes into the air. Its simple and it keeps the control in your hands where it should be.
Two of the elements credited for the 2018 Apollo’s amazing relaunch are: The curved shape of the leading edge and the sqaured off wing tips. Together they allow the kite to “unstick” by reducing contact to the water or snow when the leading edge is face down. The constant curvature of the leading edge allows the kite to easily roll onto a wing tip and lift off the water.
The kite bridle is also responsible for allowing you to choose the direction you would like to launch the kite. This clearly puts the Velcity in a class of its own amongst a sea of hybrid kites which don’t allow this function. This important function becomes an added safety feature when your kite is sitting next to an obstacle like rocks, a pier, other riders or swimmers.
For example: if you want to lift the right facing wing tip just point the right side of the control system directly at the kite and hold until the wing tip rises off of the water. When the kite launches you can easily control how fast or how slow you’d like it to fly.
If you want to speed up the relaunch process you can always just grab a leader line instead, flip the kite on its side and shoot it up into the sky. The Apollo’s easy relaunch sets a new standard in kite control. Simple. Fast. And at your command.
The feature packed 2018 Apollo comes standard with: Sprint. Cabrinha's single point inflation system. You can easily inflate the kite by connecting the pump to a single valve.
If you are looking for an all round freeride kite that will perform in a wide variety of conditions and riding styles. One with an industry leading relaunch system, look no further than the Apollo kite from Cabrinha.
The Apollo kite from Cabrinha. Kitesurfing has never been easier.
The Cabrinha Apollo wraps all of these features into one kite to deliver:
Keep in mind that this technique works best when most of your forward movement is stopped. If you have your board with you, put your feet in the straps, and sit upright with your board in front of you to slow or stop all of your forward movement. This will keep tension on the lines. Do not swim towards the kite as you would with a classic kite relaunch method.
