The Intelligent Depower System (IDS) provides an amazing level of control with minimum rider effort and input. IDS is a simplified bridle and control system exclusive to Cabrinha. IDS produces virtually no bar pressure while delivering precise control of the steering and power of your kite.
IDS is so intuitive
that it seamlessly provides 2 stages of depower. Interactive Depower on Demand while riding, and an Absolute Depower method to land your kite. Absolute Depower functions similar to a 5th line system, but without the complexity of the unnecessary 5th line. Our IDS equipped kites use only 4 lines for a simple, uncluttered method of control and security. Additionally, the IDS bridle maintains all of the instant relaunch functionality the Cabrinha kites are famous for.
Stage 1 - DEPOWER ON DEMAND
You can depower on demand by pushing the control bar toward the kite.
Stage 2 - ABSOLUTE DEPOWER
The next step:
To activate absolute depower: Pull the main quick release in the direction of the kite.
Release the residual power when landed. Absolute depower is a method of self landing your kite.
The kite will flag symetrically from the center of the arc, releasing the residual power.
