8m 2022 Cabrinha FX2 Big Air Kite
8m 2022 Cabrinha FX2 Big Air Kite
2022 Cabrinha FX2 Big Air Kite. 8m blue/yellow. Flown for a total of about 15 minutes demo in high wind. It handled great from 35-50 mph. Solid with no twitch in the kite or flutter in the trailing edge. It was actually too windy to be fun on the 8m at 50mph so we switched down to a 7m
Every coin has two sides, there are 2 sides to every story and there are two sides to the new FX2.
With a nod to its heritage, but with a completely updated design we have been able to push the performance of the FX2 further into the big air realm. Fast powerful loops with the ability to catch you on the way down. Height and hangtime that this kite has not seen before. We have created a progressive modern flying machine that will take you to all new levels.
Keeping with the original Freestyle Crossover naming, we also have developed a pro level 6 line bridle system that gives the rider the C kite feel they are looking for to help with the latest tricks which are needed to get onto the podium.

BUTTER SMOOTH CONTROL
The FX2 combines a smooth power delivery with excellent on-demand depower. This culminates in an incredibly high performing kite that is exceptionally easy to fly.
Forward pull and quick recovery from kiteloops are achieved by the rigid 3 strut hybrid C shape.
The no pulley bridle offers direct steering input and feedback.
6 LINE SETTING
Adjustment to the 6 line ‘ultimate freestyle’ mode unshackles the FX2 into a new beast. The more speed and pop, the greater the slack and recovery.
The hybrid C arc design allows excellent line slack after release, specifically designed for freestyle manoeuvres.

HIGH TENACITY DACRON
Our Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp orientated using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under the high inflation pressures. Lower elongation make for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.
NANO RIPSTOP CANOPY
A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the kite's design properties are supported by a stable and reactive kite material. Nano Ripstop does just that.
FREE YOUR STYLE BRIDLES
With the ability to choose between a high performance freestyle bridle, or a full on freestyle podium machine, the options are endless. Big Air and Kiteloops in the morning, then switch bridles for the flat water freestyle session in the evening.
6 LINE BRIDLE
The easy to change 6 line bridle ships with every FX2. When powered freestyle is your ultimate focus then take no prisoners and progress your tricks with power & style.
