Cabrinha Nomad Quicklink IDS
Powerdrive Control Bar:
The all new Cabrinha Nomad IDS continues it's foray into the Freestyle Wave Kite Arena. The non-bow hybrid IDS kite combines the best of both worlds…a moderate C-shaped arc and an IDS bridle to deliver Cabrinha's fastest turning kite yet.
The Cabrinha Nomad creates the type of kite turns that increase in power throughout the turning arc by pivoting off of the wing tip. This makes for powered kite loops unlike anything on the market.
In the Nomad kite gets further refined in the Freestyle department. Cabrinha's goal was to take its landmark turning speeds and unhooked abilities one step further. The result is a highly tuned kite which keeps its forward flying speed up even when unhooked. You can count on a constant steady pull whether you are passing or just throwing a massive raley. When it comes to kite looping the Nomad delivers. The Nomad accelerates its power when flying through the radius of a kite loop. Big or small the Nomad completes the loop with plenty of time to climb to the zenith to cushion your landing. Its no wonder that the Nomad is the pro's choice for world tour level Freestyle competition.
If throwing kiteloops or towing yourself into the surf with a kite sounds like your thing, then the Nomad IDS is the kite for you. New and improved material and construction are the foundation of a totally new design which enhances it's quick turning and high depower characteristics.
Emphasis on low end power has been a top priority for and it is where Cabrinha has made a subsantial gain including lighter weight specialised bladders in the 13m!
The Cabrinha Nomad IDS comes with two distinct
The wave bridle setting allows a greater level of depower for hooked in surfing. The fast turning speed of the Cabrinha Nomad combined with the quick and short depower throw, make for a finely tuned, predictable surfing kite like no other.
The Cabrinha Nomad turns off the wingtip and generates a lot of pull in kite loops. The Cabrinha Nomad is ideal for anyone looking to do huge unhooked wakestyle tricks while still having the safety and depower of the IDS bridle and control system.
In the surf, the Cabrinha Nomad kite sits back in the pocket and pivots so that it's always in the right place. The Cabrinha Nomad floats as you rip down the line while wave riding and gives you plenty of depower and turns fast.
The Cabrinha Nomad handles the task of unhooked riding by delivering a constant steady powerband. When unhooked the kite continues to fly forward, making the power predictable during your tricks. On the fly, depower is extremely linear which means you’ll always have the correct amount of power for the job at hand.
Quicklink IDS (Intelligent Depower System): The all new QuickLink™ control system with IDS 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 QuickLink control system raises the bar to a new untouchable height.
The Intelligent Depower System (IDS) provides an amazing level of control with minimum rider effort and input. IDS is a simplified bridle and control system exclusive to Cabrinha.
IDS produces virtually no bar pressure while delivering precise control of the steering and power of your kite. IDS 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 IDS equipped kites use only 4 lines for a simple, uncluttered method of control and security. Additionally, the IDS bridle maintains all of the instant relaunch functionality the Cabrinha kites are famous for.
This well-placed material acts as a buffer zone between the rigid strut areas and the canopy. The entire canopy of all kites are flat seamed and taped prior to sewing. This is 20% stronger than the free hand sewn method of a top stitch.
The leading edge closing seams now impliments a hot melt glue tape in the leading edge closing seam for added strength. The entire trailing edge implements a two-ply of tough 70 gsm material for added durability and strength.
The full contact between the strut and the leading edge helps to ensure a rigid frame. The positive connection not only provides stability while the kite is in flight but delivers added durability and a rapid relaunch.
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.
The Cabrinha Nomad IDS wraps all of these features into one kite to deliver:
IDS Bridle System
The bridle even allows for the AOA to reach a zero point where the kite stops pulling altogether. The interesting thing about this bridle is the way that it places equal tension on each attachment point even while depowering. Jelly fishing is not possible with the Nomad IDS.
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.
The Cabrinha Nomad size for size generates about 1+m kite size less in low end than our other bow kites.
