The Contra 1 Strut has quickly garnered a reputation as one of the best kites for lightwind freeriding and has proven a versatile addition to any kite quiver. With its single strut design, this light and nimble kite allows the use of much smaller sizes to maximize foil-boardings true potential. Featherweight control and amazing drift characteristics allow for low angles of attack while on foil, and the rear line tension increases steering impulse even when depowered. This dynamic kite design will put an optimized Contra light wind kite in your hands whether you ride a twin tip, surfboard, or a foil board.
FEATURES: • Lightweight 1-strut design • Heavy duty closing seam construction • Nano Ripstop Canopy • High Tenacity Dacron • Strategic canopy reinforcements in high stress areas • Pure Profile Panels • Agile and nimble steering • Superior drift characteristics • Effortless relaunch in the lightest wind conditions
The ultra lightweight 1-strut design shaves weight off.
Through intensive research and development the Contra 1S comes with one rear line attachment option. Simply put, this is the best possible option straight out of the bag.
Even in the lightest of wind conditions the Contra 1S gives you the confidence to try tricks knowing any mishaps won’t mean a swim in.
Superior drift characteristics allow for low angles of attack while on the foil. Rear line tension is carried through even when depowered.
Designed with the main focus to be ridden in the threshold winds where most kites can’t perform.
AGILE AND NIMBLE
Single strut design allows the kite to twist and react like no other.

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.
PURE PROFILE PANELS
Strategically placed panels allow for a seamless and smooth airflow over the most important area of the flying surface, creating an efficient and true to design profile that no others can match.

Cabrinha leads the industry in safety and performance. Since 2000, Cabrinha, a subsidiary of the Pryde Group, has climbed the ranks to take the position as the leading kitesurfing brand, selling in over 40 countries worldwide. Inspired and driven by Maui waterman, Pete Cabrinha, the company produces everything from kites to boards to accessories and sponsors the top athletes in the sport.
The Cabrinha approach to kiteboarding has evolved very much from the same philosophy that Pete has applied to his many years of surfing.
By keeping an open mind to all styles of riding and embracing new technologies, Cabrinha has been able to lead kitesurfing into a new era of performance.
