Recall Details Report an Incident Involving this Product
The spring on the control mechanism can jam, leading to a loss of control and potential injury.
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.
Cabrinha has received two reports of the spring jamming. No injuries have been reported.
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 www.cabrinhakites.com/dealers.html.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
