The MotoX shines with its user-friendly design, offering an enjoyable and straightforward flying experience complemented by quick and responsive steering. Its performance in turns is impressive, providing good power without overwhelming the rider during loops. The solid low-end power ensures reliable performance across a range of conditions, coupled with an effortless water relaunch.

The kite’s design, featuring a nimble three-strut frame, results in a crisp and light feel in the air, enhancing the overall control and maneuverability. This latest iteration boasts improved feedback compared to previous versions, with lighter touch steering and easy plug and play character, making it an ideal choice for both beginners and advanced riders. The new material that Cabrinah is using include the Apex Series enhancements, with the Ultra HT main airframe and Aero spliced bridle line, contribute to its stability, steering precision, and recovery capabilities. The innovative use of lighter weight materials, such as the new Featherlite bladders, positions the MotoX as the lightest three-strut kite in the Cabrinha range, offering unmatched performance and ease of handling.

While the MotoX 10m is designed to be an all-rounder, its wide range of capabilities might not meet the specific needs of riders looking exclusively for extreme performance in specialized kiteboarding disciplines like pure freestyle or hardcore wave riding.


The Cabrinha MotoX is tailored for kiteboarders seeking a versatile, high-performance kite that excels across various disciplines. Whether you’re a beginner aiming to progress quickly or an experienced rider looking for a reliable and fun kite, the MotoX offers the perfect combination of performance, ease of use, and adaptability. Its balanced attributes make it a compelling choice for anyone looking to enjoy the sport across freeride, freestyle, and wave riding disciplines.
