We are honored to announce that our Fireball control system has taken top spot in the IDEA (International Design And Excellence) Award. Each year a select number of products and their designers are recognized for their innovative approach to design in a wide field of categories. The Cabrinha FIREBALL control system was selected in the sporting field for it's innovative friction free rotational design.
Fireball is a control device for kitesurfing with a ball and socket apparatus that connects the kite to the rider. Fireball features a rotational frictionfree method of connection, which sidesteps a decades-long industry-standard hook-and-loop connection. Fireball is much closer to the rider’s core than a traditional hook and loop and provides a substantial increase in control and comfort.
We are also proud to see the Fireball featured on the cover of Innovation Magazine's 2017 Yearbook of Design Excellence.
Fireball™ was designed by Pete Cabrinha, Dave Hastilow, Dave Starbuck and Phil Sobolev of Cabrinha Kites Design Center for the Cabrinha Kites, a subsidiary of Pryde Group Ltd.
