Recall Details


The 1X and the Overdrive 1X control systems are both comprised of a light-weight control bar to control and depower the kite, a set of flying lines and a harness loop/quick release (QR) mechanism. Both products have an orange and black EVA grip and a new QuickLoopTM harness loop/QR. The RecoilTM spring mounted along the depower mainline is used to maintain the position of the trim adjusters. The 1X control system (model number KS51XCSFX) is a fixed length and is available in two sizes: 45 cm and 55 cm. The Overdrive 1X (model number KS5CSSDODO) is adjustable between two bar lengths and comes in sizes: 48-56 cm and 57-62 cm. Model numbers are located on a cloth tab attached to the bungee line restrainers at the end of the bars.


Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled control system and contact any Cabrinha authorized dealer for a free repair part. A list of authorized dealers can be found at
