What’s new about cabrinha apollo 2017:
New for 2017, Cabrinha Apollo 2017 rockets into the kiteboarding world with a design unlike any other. What we have with Cabrinha Apollo 2017 is an incredibly efficient, stable, and powerful bow kite ready to blast upwind and boost huge. Massive jumps, you say? Yes – of course. Unlike a few of the fateful Apollo missions, this Apollo will actually boost to the moon and back with a very lofty, long, and stable flight. It provides power in an incredibly efficient manner, with it’s high-aspect shape and flight toward the forward bit of the window. Cabrinha Apollo 2017 is designed for riding where the speed of the kite is critical, whether you’re looking for massive jumps, extreme efficiency, or even race crossover. Yes, Cabrinha Apollo 2017 can be used as a race or foiling kite, but don’t let that fool you – it’s incredibly easy to fly.
What Cabrinha has to say about the 2017 Apollo
Cabrinha Apollo 2017 is a performance freeride kite designed to pull every bit of power out of the atmosphere and deliver it right into your hands. It is purpose built for kiteboarding, meaning that it has been designed from the ground up specifically for the sport of kiteboarding. The inflated skeletal frame of the kite sets it apart from a ram air kite in many ways. The skeletal frame provides the structure that keeps the kite design true to its intended shape while in-flight. In shifty winds, the inflated struts drive the kite through turbulence with a minimal amount of deformation. The inflated leading edge structure of the kite introduces the laminar flow of air across the kite’s Pure Profile panels, making it very stable even at low speeds. These inflation properties make the Apollo unbeatable as a light wind performance kite and incredibly accurate as a high wind kite. It also goes without mention that an inflatable kite is much more reliable to relaunch, thereby making Cabrinha Apollo 2017 much safer and much more fun to ride than a ram air kite.
