The industry leading kite for wakestyle and freeriding just got better. Thanks to the addition of our Intelligent Depower System or IDS you have more control at your fingertips than you ever thought possible.
The Switchblade IDS is a performance kite with a direct, light bar feel, and easy handling capabilities. The Switchblade excels in the competition wakestyle arena but is simple enough to make any rider feel like a pro.
The Switchblade 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.
The New Powerdrive IDS
soft eva bar ends
The Powerdrive IDS is the only bar on the market with soft EVA multifunction ends. The EVA ends create a seamless transition from the center of the grip all the way to the ergonomic, protective ends. This provides added comfort when doing aggressive turns at the ends of the bar. The ergonomic geometry of the bar ends also serve as line winders to adequately manage your line set.
lower pivot point
The soft EVA ends have allowed us to lower the pivot point of the steering lines right down to the bar. This reduces the turning impulse required to steer your kite.
The EVA bar ends have sufficient buoyancy to float the control bar and lines, allowing us to eliminate the cumbersome external floats for an even more streamline, uncluttered look and feel.
The new Powerdrive IDS control system is completely void of any pulleys. The IDS equipped kites all work on a direct 1:1 method of control. This produces virtually no bar pressure, and leaves the bar free of added lines and pulleys.
proven quick release
Industry leading QR. Safety is an integral part of the Cabrinha design culture. This is why we have used the same quick release method for three years running. Our quick release has very little moving parts and is not susceptible to salt or sand. We do not make our QR perform any other function than to Quickly Release. It is easy to activate with a right or left hand, whether the kite has power or not. It’s simple. Time tested. Proven.
If at anytime during the Absolute Depower process (after the main QR has been activated) you need to completely separate yourself from your kite, you can pull the secondary QR where t
