Cabo: Charge every wave
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.

“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.”

Tri strut:
Rock solid stability and exceptional downwind drift come as standard with the mid aspect ratio, tri-strut design. Highly responsive steering and wingtip pivot turning allow you put yourself in the best position on every wave.
Double core RS:
Double Core Rip-stop has twice as many reinforcing fibers woven into the warp and weft as standard Rip-stop fabrics- giving you twice the performance with no weight penalty. A BEST Exclusive.
Custom Tune:
Multiple rear line attachment options so you can tune your kite for unhooked feel, depower, bar pressure and turning speed.

Reactive micro bridle:
A short bridle gives you precise, direct handling with plenty of feedback. A single, self-adjusting front bridle tow point helps provide the stability, low end power and upwind ability that you need to perform.
3D Kevlar Airframe:
The standard in airframe construction. Laser cut and Kevlar taped, there is no lighter, stiffer and more durable way to connect the leading edge to the struts.
3D Scuff guards:
3D injection molded scuff pads provide maximum protection in self launch situations.
Canopy Framing technology:
Copied but never bettered. CFT is the original canopy perimeter reinforcement system and it’s one of the reasons why only BEST offer you a LIFETIME warranty on your next kite. A BEST exclusive.
The simplest, fastest and most reliable rapid inflation system on the market, updated with new strut air hoses and clips.
Kevlar Elbows:
Kevlar reinforced, abrasion resistant leading edge elbow patches provide greater resistance against handling and launch/land damage.
New needle leading edge:
As simple as it sounds, using a brand new needle every time you stitch a new leading edge isn’t standard practice in the industry - but it’s the best way to build the strongest kite possible and that’s why we build this way.
Air Aid materials:
High performance Ripstop and Dacron fabric infusions maximize strength and handling responsiveness.
Hidden Bridle Patches:
Multi-layer reinforcements, applied to the inside of the LE. This provides best possible load distribution and eliminates any risk of fraying Dacron edges.
Load Flex Seam:
Triple stitched, fully taped, tip-to-tip LE seam. The Load Flex Seam help stiffen and support the LE of your kite for maximum strength and stability.
Surf Tough:
There are no shortcuts to creating lasting durability; we use the highest quality materials and most advanced construction techniques to build kites that are truly Surf Tough and the match of conditions anywhere in the world.
