The 2014 Velocity is a 5-strut high aspect kite which doubles as both Cabrinha’s race kite and a high performing freeride kite in low winds. The inflation system uses a high flow valve that universally fits any pump hose with no nozzle and makes inflating and deflating fast and effortless. The Velocity features a 100% double ripstop canopy, and a single ply of higher strength ripstop in the trailing edge, a rear bridle with two turning speed attachment settings as well as a non-adjustable fixed front bridle which is fairly long in length. Compared to the Contra, the Velocity doesn’t turn nearly as fast, but its upwind ability and amount of power that it creates in all parts of the window earned it high praise from all our testers in San Diego’s light wind. Despite the slower turning speed, the Velocity is fun to jump and delivers an incredible amount of hang time.
The Velocity came with the QuickLink Race fixed length 65cm bar. The QuickLink bar is a more utilitarian design optimized for racing compared to the Overdrive bar that comes with all other Cabrinha kites. Although these bars share the same push away quick release and plastic coated depower/throw line, the QuickLink doesn’t have the adjustable length bar ends, and has a simple Clam Cleat with a long dangling line for tuning the kite. The single center-line safety depower doesn’t route through the center of the plastic throw line, but overall the bar is a clean and functional design which works very well in light wind situations. Testers praised the comfortable grip and overall utilitarian design.
