Cabrinha Says:

Get more days on the water with the Contra three strut light wind kite. Designed to maximize power production in light winds, while ensuring effortless power control from our trademark depower-on-demand, the Contra is able to execute sharp and precise turning. It has the power of a larger kite while maintaining the finesse of a smaller kite. Tuned to deliver the type of performance that will widen the scope of what you can do in light winds, the Contra is the perfect kite to extend your game into the light wind arena.

TKB Says:

Welcome to Cabrinha’s 3-strut pulling powerhouse bliss! The Contra’s medium aspect canopy and swooped wingtips generates tons of grunt when you dial in some apparent wind and pulls you in the lightest of wind. The Contra flies extremely well in all parts of the window and pulls with very comfortable medium bar pressure and smooth predictable power delivery. This kite turns like what you would expect from a 17 that’s puling you in the lightest of wind, but with a fairly good turning radius that keeps it in the pulling window. The steering arc is more swoopy than pivot-style but generated good power throughout maneuvers. The 3-strut frame delivers a solid balance between crisp canopy shape and a light overall feel, while the impressive pull makes this a no-brainer choice for extremely low wind sessions.

The Contra comes with the Overdrive 1XL Trimlite control bar which features 8cm (48-56cm) of bar length adjustment with Cabrinha’s Overdrive adjustable on the fly bar ends. This bar features a fixed length durable plastic depower/throw and a stainless steel cleat with bungee handle adjuster. We love how simple the new bar layout is while ergonomically speaking it has a very comfortable grip and just the right amount of features for a clean and highly functional light wind control bar.
