The Drifter kite, renowned as a Cabrinha classic, has built a strong reputation in the industry. This kite lives up to its name, providing an experience that allows kiters to fully embrace the power of the ocean. With the Drifter, riders can focus on their ride, without worrying about the kite's location or actions. Its impressive track record includes numerous world titles and a significant amount of barrel time, making it the leading kite for an enhanced ocean experience.

The latest version of the Drifter features the all-new Lite Frame and HTD Lite material. This innovative combination results in the most reactive Drifter kite to date. Regardless of your riding style, this kite allows you to place it precisely where you want it in the air.

The Drifter is designed to deliver outstanding performance in various scenarios. Whether you're seeking Strapless Big Air, shredding down a roaring point break, or ripping through wind swell, this kite will always deliver.

With its 3-strut, moderate aspect ratio hybrid design and surf/drift wing tip design, the Drifter offers exceptional control and stability. The short compact pulleyless bridle ensures maximum control and responsiveness.

The iconic reputation of the Drifter lies in its ability to effortlessly "drift" down the line, allowing riders to focus on the waves. Like all Cabrinha kites, the Drifter is packed with features that empower riders to push their limits, whether they're tackling 1-foot or 10-foot waves.

The Drifter boasts Pure Profile Panels strategically placed for seamless airflow over the most critical part of the flying surface. This design ensures efficiency and a true-to-design profile that cannot be matched by any other kite.

Every wave is unique, and the Drifter's on-demand rapid depower and power enable riders to stay in the perfect position or reach their desired location effortlessly.

The Lite Frame combines the proven HTD Lite Dacron with a refined canopy design, resulting in the lightest and most reactive kite to date. This lightweight frame enhances the range and performance of the Drifter.

Introducing the HTD Lite, the next evolutionary leap in inflatable structures. By combining the superior elongation control of the proven HTD material with superior reflex bias recovery and lighter weight construction, we have elevated the Drifter's response characteristics and range.

The new Sprint 3.0 inflation system prioritizes air flow from the leading edge to the strut. With new straight and angled valves, the inflation tube remains free from kinks. Its secure fit design also simplifies maintenance.

The Drifter features bulletproof bumpers made of durable TPU material. These lightweight and sturdy bumpers protect the canopy and LE stitching, with a manufacturing process that minimizes abrasion when the kite rests on a hard surface.
