When it comes to a kite which represents the pinnacle of performance and versatility, the Switchblade has no equal.
The greatest achievements in the sport of kitesurfing have been accomplished with an ‘off the shelf’ Switchblade. Using the exact same kite which can be bought in stores.
This is not only a testament to the Switchblades uncompromising high end performance, but also to its reliability, predictability, durability and ease of use. In a commercial sense, it is a product offering rarely seen in any other professional sport and yet today, Cabrinha is still the only kite brand which has engineered such a feat.
The all new :01 Moto has been supercharged with forward drive. Thrust is now generated more effortlessly and the kite’s ability to ‘climb’ uphill has been greatly improved. This all translates into an infinitely more crisp and direct kite performance free ride kite with immediate response and control.
To aid with the forward drive, the second version has had a redesign not only in its unique profiles, but also in the arc shape where we reduced the coning to allow it to fly faster through the wind window.
The final stage of redesign in all our kites is the bridle. Here we took a balanced approach to allow us to maintain the light bar feel, while giving more control through varying angles of attack. All in all giving a far more refined and versatile kite.

The best one strut light weather kite of the moment
2020 is the year Airush introduces the third version of the king among the lightwind tube kites: the Airush Ultra V3 2020. The Airush Ultra V3 is one of the lightest tube kites on the market and therefore super good to use during days with less wind . The Ultra V3 is already flying at the slightest breeze and is a great kite to use on the hydrofoil, but certainly also fun to use for freeride kite surfing on your twin tip or catch a wave with. You don’t have to be a pro to fly the Ultra V3. The character of the Airush Ultra can be described as friendly and forgiving.
The light weight one strut profile forms the basis of the construction of the Airush Ultra V3 2020. By removing all unnecessary struts, Airush has managed to save a huge amount of weight with the Ultra V3. The canopy of the Ultra V3 is made of strong double ripstop material. To make the Ultra stiffer and stronger, Airush has made a Load Frame through the canopy of the Ultra. This Load Frame with WebTech is a kind of spider web of strong yarn that is stitched through the canopy. This makes the Ultra a strong kite despite the one strut design.
The tips of the Ultra V3 are made to ensure that the Ultra V3 is a kite with a super easy relaunch. The V3.2 bridle system works with a pully. By using a pully, the Ultra V3 has a very large depower range and the kite can handle gusts easily . Compared to the Ultra V2, the V3 is made somewhat stiffer and is therefore a bit faster and more responsive.
This year the Ultra V3 is still one of the best and perhaps the best one strut kites on the market. The best kite to go on the water with little wind with your hydrofoil.

Airush Ultra V3 12m
LIGHT YEARS AHEAD Perfect freeride foil capabilities. The lightest kite we have ever made. Improved high-end performance in larger sizes. The Ultra V3 has redefined our lofty expectations of what a kite can do. The light weight and stability have opened up places we could never have kited, in marginal conditions we would not have considered kiteable. With unbeatable performance, weight saving features, and an exclusive Airush Load Frame for maximum durability, the Ultra kite has been the go-to kite for foil riders, wave riders and snow kiters alike. When considering the Ultra evolution, a focus on segmentation reduction through the canopy and leading edge Lightweight Single Strut geometry increases the skin tension per panel. Fewer segments result in more tension between each segment point. This increases the responsiveness of the Ultra V3, while maintaining stability.
