It’s official, Cabrinha has announced the release of the 2012 Switchblades. The Switchblade 2011 was such a huge hit, they sold out quickly and pushed the production of the 2012 Switchblade to middle of the summer!

The 2012 Cabrinha Switchblade is one of the most stable and predictable kites you will ever find. This kite was so popular we sold out of the 2011′s months ago and are stoked the 2012 is almost here. The first 2012 Cabrinha Switchblades should be here in early July so look for a full review and more pics.

The 2012 Cabrinha Switchblade has become synonymous with versatility. Its reliability and predictability are two of the reasons why it excels as a performance wakestyle kite as well as an all around freeride kite. The number one choice of Wakestyle riders world wide, the Switchblade delivers a stable source of power which transfers into incredible pop. Once in the air, the kite will steer effortlessly with minimal input from the rider. The Switchblade is excellent for unhooked or hooked in riding in just about any conditions. If there is one kite that can back up all of the accolades being thrown at it, it’s the Switchblade wakestyle, freeride kite.

For 2012, refinements to the Switchblade include a repositioned and retuned bridle that also has drastic handling differences between custom Wake and Freeride settings, a lighter feel, improved balance, and a new improved canopy material providing both looks and strength.

The 2012 Cabrinha Switchblade comes complete with the all new Quicklink IDS control system, the first control system ever that has 100% capability for free spinning front lines, landing line, and leash independently. The Quicklink also has a wider center hole for easier steering and trimming of the kite, improved line winders, and a removable security pin.
