OUR ALL-NEW NANO RIPSTOP KITE CANOPY MATERIAL CATAPULTS CABRINHA INTO THE NEXT GENERATION OF KITE TECHNOLOGY. 

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, delivering a performance boost for every kite in our new 2020 range while increasing our durability by the factor of two. Double strength, same weight. 

Nano Ripstop* is a 55 g/m2 material with a 3mm double rip stop pattern. This micro rip stop material in unison with the newly developed coating, has given us a 2X increase in the canopy’s tear strength. A smaller rip stop pattern increases the amount of “cells” in any given panel.

The exclusive new coating has been engineered to deliver unprecedented durabi-lity and stability, giving you a crispier feel and increased canopy rigidity creating a higher performing kite. 

The material’s stability is further locked into place by a process called Plasma treatment, unique to Cabrinha’s exclusive Nano Ripstop. Plasma treatment creates a hydrophilic surface for superior adhesion of the coating onto the unfinished greige material.

The result is a well balanced, stable cloth with greater longevity. Simply put, the coating will take longer to break down which keeps your kite feeling crisp and lively throughout the life of the kite.
