Charge Every Wave

Drop into the biggest waves, glide along the glassy faces of pumping swell and escape the whitewash of gnarly wedges. The Cabo tows you into the best waves of your life and then sits and drifts at the edge of the wind window for you to enjoy the ride. Excelling in freeride as well, it will get you back behind the impact zone while easily going upwind.

Turning Speed – Responsive steering that is quick but tight The delta shape with swept wing tips provides maximum agility and responsiveness. This kite turns faster than you can hack your cutback into any wave. The power of fast steering and downloops is smoothly transitioned to support your ride instead of ripping you of the board. This agility also pays off in twintip sessions as the Cabo is an excellent kite for smooth jumps and kiteloops.

Down Wind Drift – Like an autopilot, downwind drift allows you to get into position on any wave The Cabo’s light tri-strut design is built to follow your movement without being worried that your kite might fall from the sky. While we tested this dedicated wave kite in the biggest Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean swells, our pro riders often overtook the kite by dropping into the valley of awe-inspiring wedges. The Cabo just drifted along while being all time ready to instantly respond to steering impulses.

Stability – Easy handling and performance in any wind conditions Stability is a key feature for wave and freeride kites. That’s why we refined the LE segmentation on this year’s model for a cleaner profile that is most resistant against gusts. The Cabo’s aerodynamic characteristics streamline the wind flow to provide rock solid stability that helps to pivot the kite in tight circles or park it at the edge of the wind window.

Bar Pressure – Light bar feel that understands your turn Light to the touch, the smooth and gentle bar pressure of the Cabo supports riding waves like no other kite. At the same time it is calibrated to be ultra-responsive and provides constant feedback to optimize the control of the kite. Even if a barrel is blocking your way, you will always know where your kite is at.

  • Changes to previous model:
  • ++ Refined LE segmentation for cleaner profile
  • ++ 3D Foam Bridle Deflectors
  • ++ LE circumference seam protection
  • ++ Dual strut head reinforcements
