2013 Best Cabo
When the Cabo first arrived at our shop we were very eager to test this kite since it somewhat resembles our favorite all-around kite, the Best TS. After some time with the kite we are happy to report that the Cabo not only excels at it's intended discipline but is also a good choice for those that prefer lighter bar pressure (many women), a tighter turning circle and less grunt.
The Cabo is proof Best scored another major victory this year. With the introduction of this wave specific 3 strut design which utilizes their new Double Core RS canopy material and 3D Kevlar Airframe we can see why they are confident to offer their Fair & Reasonable Life-Time Warranty. Best is now killing it in the waves more than ever!
- 100% WAVE FOCUSED
- MID-ASPECT TRI-STRUT DESIGN
- SURF-TOUGH DOUBLE CORE RIPSTOP
- REACTIVE MICRO BRIDLE HANDLING
- RAPID TURNING, STABLE DOWNWIND DRIFT
Your search is over. Unhooked or hooked the Cabo will help you charge every wave. The mid-aspect, tri-strut layout helps reduce weight and allows the Cabo to sit further back in the window with impeccable downwind drift - no matter how hard the wind is blowing. The short, reactive micro bridle works in harmony with the tri-strut layout to maximize turning speed and feedback. An Open-C platform provides great stability with minimum bar pressure so you can commit 100% on any wave that you ride into.
Because big waves demand respect, we built the Cabo with our new Double Core RS canopy material, Canopy Framing Technology and 3D Kevlar Airframe construction. The Cabo is built Surf Tough to survive any wave that you can ride. 100% wave focused the Cabo will always let you find the perfect position on every wave for expressing your unique style. It's so good to ride that we're sure it will be your first choice kite even when there are no waves to ride.
Double Core RS
Double Core RS weaves two high tenacity filaments into the Warp and Weft to deliver maximum resistance to tear propagation and improved bias load handling. Combine this innovative double-stop weave with our Air-Aid coating technology and you have a lightweight, responsive canopy material of unmatched strength and durability.
Double Core RSdelivers a unique combination of crisp handling and durability and is one of the reasons why BEST offers a LIFETIME warranty on every kite we sell.
Cabo Designer's Vision:
"What can I say?...purity and addiction, that is what waves do to you. That is where the Cabo takes you. A wave kite that drifts gracefully downwind in side off and reacts directly to input in side on conditions. Take your quiver of Cabo kites with you and explore the world."
