Safety Alert

Hydra Series H2

STANDARD 9-14 US / 41-49 EUROPE

When it comes to the development of our products, we at Cabrinha put safety above all things. 

We have recently discovered a manufacturing defect in the production of our 2014 Hydra Series H2 backless bindings. Owners of all 2014 H2 backless bindings (STANDARD SIZE ONLY)(KB4H2BDSL) purchased before December 30, 2013 should contact the dealer where their 2014 H2 backless bindings were purchased to receive a new upgraded pair of the H2 backless bindings. 

We have discovered in a limited number of cases, the screw fastening the upper foot strap to the chassis, does not meet our minimum test requirement for load, due to incorrect installation by Cabrinha’s supplier. There is a small possibility that the upper can pull away from the chassis connection. 

We have taken remedial action and modified the manufacturing process and rectified all H2 systems.   The upgraded H2 backless binding will be available at your local Cabrinha dealer in January 2014.  The upgraded bindings will carry a green dot sticker on the base of the packaging.

Please contact your local dealer or email us directly at support@cabrinhakites.com and we will work with you and your local dealer to provide you with the upgraded H2 binding system.

Cabrinha Kites has always placed quality and the safety of our customers upfront in all our product development efforts.  Your safety—and your loyalty—are our top priorities. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us directly at info@cabrinhakites.com.

SAFETY ALERT

1X and Overdrive  / 1X Control Systems

The Cabrinha brand has always placed quality and safety of our customers upfront in all our product development efforts.

Due to a recent discovery of a manufacturing defect in production, we have decided to make a product recall on all 2015 1X and Overdrive 1X control systems (KS5CSSDOD, KS51XCSFX) manufactured before August 1st. 

We have discovered, in a very small number of cases that the internal diameter of the bungee guide does not meet our specification, due to an unauthorized modification by Cabrinha's supplier. There is a small possibility that the Recoil™ spring can jam between the internal diameter of the bungee guide and the PU depower main line.  In the unlikely case that the Recoil™ spring does jam itself into the bungee guide, the rider is still able to activate the main quick release and depower the kite into the single line flagging safe position.

In an attempt to reduce the inconvenience caused to our valued customers, our authorized dealers will install the part which will immediately remedy the issue.  All 2015 1X and Overdrive 1X control systems must be brought back to the point of purchase to have the part installed.  The part in topic is called the Recoil Slider (KS5RECSDR) and it takes under two minutes to install, using only a screwdriver.

This problem is limited to a small percentage of the 2015 1X and Overdrive 1X control systems manufactured before August 1st.  We have taken action to remedy the issue in production. We have modified the manufacturing process and rectified all control systems as of August 1st. You can distinguish the modified and correct control systems by a GREEN DOT on the packaging hangtag of the control system. Anything shipped before August 1st without a green dot will need the Recoil slider installed.

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your support in helping us maintain the highest level of safety.
