The Kiteboarder review:
Designed for riders who appreciate versatile, predictable kite performance, the Moto kite is a triple threat for any type of riding in a wide range of conditions. It excels in three of the most exciting disciplines the sport has to offer: Freeride, Freesurf, and Foilboarding. This versatile Freeride / Crossover kite is light to the touch and provides a precise and linear power delivery. This year the Moto is built with our new Nano Ripstop canopy, which will be the new bench mark in durability, stability & responsiveness. Double strength, same weight. The lighter weight and quick response are made possible with its 3-strut hybrid plan form.
The Moto performs its best in challenging wind conditions. Generous depower tames the gustiest winds and widens its wind range considerably. The Moto’s fast turning speed not only puts this kite into a performance category of its own, it enhances the kite’s amazing versatility.
The Moto is Cabrinha’s 3-strut medium aspect do-it-all platform that offers pure easy to use performance bridled with a crisp feeling that dials in the perfect blend of versatility that can satisfy the needs of big air, surf, freestyle and foilboard riding. This year the Moto gets an upgrade with Cabrinha’s new Nano Ripstop canopy that uses a smaller cell pattern for increased stiffness as well as two treatment process that ensure durability and longevity. The Moto comes with Cabrinha’s large diameter bayonet-style inflation valve that requires no nozzle on the end of your standard pump hose for a quick and easy pump up. The Moto features a single setting fixed bridle that doesn’t use any pulleys to change the kite’s angle of attack. The front bridle pigtails end in larks heads and the wingtip pigtails end with three knots to fine-tune your power setting, with clean labeling to point out the stock setting. There are two options for setting the wingtip attachment point, clearly labeled for choosing between light impulse/increased depower travel and direct impulse/shorter depower travel. The factory setting comes attached to the light impulse connection closest to the wingtip.
From the day the Moto came out to its most current iteration, it has steadily offered better, cleaner and faster crossover performance. The first thing we noticed about the Moto is its incredibly crisp turning response, with the connection between the bar and the kite feeling perfectly dialed with almost instantaneous turn initiation at the kite. The turning speed on the Moto is also very impressive which makes it incredibly easy to put the Moto exactly where you want with a tighter pivot style turn, which puts the Moto always in the right place at the right time. When it comes to big air, while the Moto may not deliver quite as much lift or hangtime as the Switchblade canopy, yet the Moto’s user-friendly and predictable precision steering can deliver boosts that will still half-literally knock your socks off.
The Moto features light to medium bar pressure, which is adept at delivering both comfort on your hands and arms at the end of a long session, yet, with that comfortable bar pressure, you get quite good kite feedback. The new Nano Ripstop material feels noticeably crisp in your hands and adds to the fine-tuned responsive feeling of the kite. The Moto has a nice progressive bar sheeting throw, with very predictable and smooth power delivery through the movement of the bar, and at the end of the throw, the Moto delivers nearly complete depower, more so than what you get with the Switchblade. This kite also scores well in stability and good drift for down the line wave riding, which makes this a great crossover option for surf and foilboarding.
The Moto loves to go upwind with a middle forward position in the wind window and we found the water relaunch to be incredibly responsive. From nose down in the bottom of the window, the Moto bar required a little pressure on one side of the bar and the kite rotated onto a wingtip and released from the water into the air, for a really easy relaunch.
The Moto platform feels light and responsive with excellent power delivery that makes it feel a bit faster and more agile than the Switchblade for crossover into the surf and general freeride cruising. It’s ample depower, drift and responsive handling make it a great foilboarding option and definitely checks the boxes for the all-around kiter that wants to do a little bit of everything. The Moto is that trusty high-performance friend that is easy to use, with a good wide wind range that brings smiles to riders of every skill level.
“Clean build, snappy turning with light bar pressure and really good upwind ability, super stable and easy to relaunch with good drifting down the line.” // Dan Lerer
“Speedy Gonzales comes to mind, with light bar pressure, excellent turning speed, middle of the pack lift and hangtime, and really good upwind ability with high-quality kite construction and bar.” // Roland Erni
“If you can only get one kite, this does a little bit of everything. Super stable, goes upwind really well, I like how you can over pull on the bar and the kite doesn’t stall or lose power.” // Kelly Grief
