The 2019 Cabrinha Contra establishes itself as the light wind kite by which all others are measured. The Contra from Cabrinha delivers performance in light winds that is simply unmatched by any other kite in the low wind segment. Extremely responsive, even in the larger sizes, the Cabrinha Contra has the feel of a much smaller kite with a combination of efficiency and performance that is unmatched. Enabling you to bridge the gap in your riding style and making this no kite days almost a thing of the past.
The Cabrinha Contra range is very much based on rider weight; with lighter riders best suited to the 13m and 17m Contra kite. They will not find much added low end power on the 15m or 19m but they will find a lot more depower which would otherwise lead to them being overpowered as soon as as the large Contra’s are flying. Whereas heavier riders will find the extra power of the Cabrinha Contra 15m and 19m brilliant, as it will offer added pull to start jumping and riding upwind earlier than you even thought possible.
Cabrinha Contra Wind Range -
The 19m 2019 Cabrinha Contra has a wind range that starts at just 5knots and will be a topping out at 12 to 14 knots depending on rider weight. The 17m has a similar range to the 19m starting at 6 knots and pushing 15 knots at the top end. The 17m Contra generates power with kite speed, whereas the 19m is a really powerful kite from the get go. Riders under 85kg will not get more performance out of the 19m as the 17m. Although the 17m will give the lighter rider a much more comfortable ride. The 15m starts pulling at 8 knots and the 13m closer to 10 knots but again the heavier rider (90kg) will get more power from the 15m leaving the 13m for the lighter rider.
The 3 strut design and sleek wing tips of the Contra make it light and fast with easy relaunch in even the lightest winds. While the mid aspect ratio and draft forward profile keep the Contra stable and power delivery on tap as the wind picks up offering a good wind range. Each of the Cabrinha Contra kite sizes actually turn very well, responding like a much smaller kite, particularly when the larger bars or Cabrinha Overdrive bars are used.
