The 1X Control System is our ultra light weight, fixed length control system. The non-adjustable control bar features the QuickLoop opening harness loop and utilizes our all new TrimLight cleat system. QuickLoop's safe and simple activation of single line flagging makes it possible to kill the power of the kite so it will rest motionless on the water or land. The TrimLite Cleat is a light weight, simple trim system, that uses a 2:1 purchase to give your kite the perfect balance and trim to match the changing wind conditions.

TrimLite Cleat: Our new customized compact stainless steel TrimLite Cleat, allows precise and positive trim adjustment. The light weight design has an elasticized trim line, and internalized mainline and landing lines protected with PU tubing, which gives you the bare essentials with perfect balance and trim to match the changing wind conditions.
Internalized Lines: The protective PU tube allows us to run the depower mainline and the 1X landing line through the center of the bar without the risk of abrasion or tangling.
Low V: We have lowered the front line connection to the CAS in order to provide a more direct and immediate response from your bar input.
1X Security System: The 1X is not a depower system, it is a full blown shut down system. The 1X relies on only one line to immediately shut down the power of the kite whether it be on land or water in all wind conditions.
Depower On Demand: We introduced Depower on Demand in 2005 along with our revolutionary Crossbow kite. Even today, every Cabrinha kite (except the Chaos) incorporates Depower on Demand as the default method to precisely control the power of a kite.
Safety Floats: The EVA ends are buoyant enough to float the entire control system with lines attached. The tips have Flex grooves which aid in bending the tips while winding your lines onto the bar or while steering your kite.
