For the 2012 season the Cabrinha team seems to have focused on freeride and freestyle. The 2012 twin tip board line gathers a few models which excel at these disciplines. One of the newest additions to the kiteboard line is the Spectrum. The Spectrum is not only a great freeride and freestyle board, but it is also a good choice for wakestyle and lightwind. And there is more about this board. It is designed to keep up with the rider as he progresses. It has a good power delivery, it is fast and packs plenty of pop, but at the same time it is forgiving and easy to use.

The Spectrum is the new board model introduced by Cabrinha for the 2012 season. It is a very special board, meant to suit a wide variety of conditions and skill levels. The Spectrum is one of the most versatile progression boards ever. It suits both beginner and advanced riders and it is a great companion for the rider looking to progress from a beginner level to an advanced one.

The wider outlines and the slightly squared tip profile make it fast and snappy, and allow the rider to enjoy a smooth glide. A great thing about the Spectrum is that it is very reliable in all wind and wave conditions. The board uses a moderate flex pattern, especially suited for freeride and freestyle. The flex pattern works together with the rider and helps him perform any maneuver and feel comfortable. The board has a controlled power delivery and it generates the extra pop exactly when needed. At the same time the new bottom design and rocker line keep it steady and provide excellent control. The rider can enjoy a smooth cruise or perform spectacular tricks without effort.

The Cabrinha Spectrum is equipped with 45 mm fins, intended to optimize the power delivery and increase the grip. The board offers fast and tight turns, a nice top speed, good acceleration and excellent upwind performance and it is stable and forgiving at the same time. It has no spray and no drag as it cuts through the waves. Apart from freestyle and freeride, the Cabrinha Spectrum is a great wakestyle and lightwind board.

The board is crafted using a vertically laminated Paulownia Wood core and ABS sidewalls. This construction generates a moderate flex patter suited for freeride and freestyle as well as for all skill levels. At the same time this structure provides an optimal strength to weight ratio. The Cabrinha Spectrum covers all your riding needs from a beginner level to an advanced one.
