Designed for the discerning rider who values unrivaled predictability and uncompromising high end performance, the Switchblade is made for those that want style, power, performance and craftsmanship.
The Switchblade’s reputation for being the world’s highest performance freeride kite not only comes from the thousands of customers who hail its praise, but from its countless world titles. Fastest sailing craft in the world (2010). King of the air (2017). Worlds highest tow-up jump (2018).
What’s most amazing about the Switchblade is that all this performance comes in one of the easiest to use packages. Its balance and power delivery make this kite light to the touch and simple to fly. Whether you are working on your freestyle game or testing your limits in boosting incredible air, the Switchblade will deliver with a class of predictability and reliability that can not be found anywhere else.
NEW Nano Ripstop canopy, the new bench mark in durability, stability & responsiveness. A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the kite’s design properties are supported by a stable and reactive kite material. Nano Ripstop does just that.
NEW Optimized Dacron layout for reduced weight & improved handling characteristics.
High Tenacity Dacron for enhanced arc stability. Our Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp oriented using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under high inflation pressures. Lower elongation makes for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.
Skeletal Frame Provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in-flight. The stable frame drives the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation and has excellent overall de-power. The inflated leading edge introduces the laminar flow of air across the kite’s Pure Profile panels, for a quick recovery if stalled and prevents the kite folding on itself. The inflatable structure reduces the amount of bridling required for stability. It also provides safety by providing some flotation in the water, and enables easy re-launch.
Aspect Ratio A long, narrow wing generally has a high aspect ratio, whereas a short, stubby wing has a low aspect ratio. A high aspect ratio design makes the kite fly forward and point upwind incredibly well. The lower the aspect ratio design is more responsive and provides a consistent and stable pull.
1X Security Upon activation of 1X’s single line flagging system the power of a kite is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land.
Sprint System w/ Airlock The Sprint inflation systems is the most efficient and easy way to get your kite inflated and deflated quickly. The enlarged Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. The Airlock connection to the Sprint pump requires no special adapters. Once inflated, you can lock off each strut independently to keep your kite’s rigid frame, and isolate any accidental strut deflation from the rest of the kite. When the session is over, the entire kite will deflate in seconds thanks to the Airlock valve’s large dump feature.
Dynamic Arc Dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The arc of the kite takes on one shape while flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water. While resting on the water the arc opens up slightly to facilitate an easier relaunch.
Power Control Every Cabrinha kite comes with a simple, user adjustable way to choose the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. However, the user can choose to create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite, or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.
Strategic canopy reinforcements in the high stress areas.
Pure profile panels for efficient aerodynamics. The strategically placed panels provide ultimate control over the aerodynamic profiles in the kite. Smooth and stable profile entry. Improved overall kite efficiency, performance, and range. Faster flying through the sky giving you a broader range of performance.

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.
