Cabrinha Chaos 2014

INTRODUCING:
The Chaos is here for its second year. If you are unsure what market the Chaos is designed for, then it’s 100% freestyle and big air boosting. It’s used by both Alby and Liam in the PKRA and has a pretty impressive pedigree already. With a colour scheme that will blow your socks off there’s no missing the launch of the new Chaos. Tested Ned

BASICS:
Build and construction
The Chaos is a five strut kite with an almost C shaped curve to it yet with the introduction of a bridle for the additional depower this provides.

Set up and tuning
The kite inflates really easily with the help of the new improved inflate valve. The one pump works perfectly with no pinching to the strut tubes at all.

Bar and trim
The overall look of the bar looks pretty much identical to last year but when you look a bit closer you can see all the major changes. The main feature this year is the override adjustable bar size, you can bend the end of the bar outwards and it snaps into position locking it to a larger size (for larger kites) and then pull on the toggle and it will return to its original position where you can snap it inwards to create a smaller bar. This system has 8cm of adjustment meaning you don’t have to have a load of different sized bars.

Safety
All of the releases are in the same place but the difference this year is that when you release the kite, it is flagged out on one of the front lines instead of two, meaning maximum depower.

PERFORMANCE:
Turning speed, handling and feel
The idea of this kind of shaped kite is to get a really direct and fast turning kite that still has plenty of depower to keep you in control when the wind’s up, and I think that Cabrinha have ticked all of those boxes with the Chaos for this year. The kite feels comfortable with predictable power delivery yet feels direct and responsive for freestyle.

The Triangle
The Chaos has a slightly higher aspect ratio than the Switchblade by the looks of it, the idea behindthis is to give the Chaos a bit more lift as well as flying further round the window

and taking you upwind faster, these are two key points that you are going to want in a competition freestyle kite as this will keep you in the judging area and impressing the judges rather then trying to creep your way back upwind.

Lift, hangtime and looping
The directness of the steering combined with the increased aspect ratio results in a really boosty and floaty kite, this also works great for looping as the kite responds instantly and has great wang through the loop.

Unhooking
As the kite is a fully-fledged freestyle machine of course it comes straight out of the bag and ready to unhook, no trimming or adjustment is required which is a very good sign. The power delivery when unhooked is a very similar feeling to when hooked in, this is exactly what you want as you get a very uniform feel regardless of what you are doing.

Trim, depower and range
The alternative to a Chaos shaped kite is a full on C shaped kite with no bridle, this kind of kite is perfect to unhook within a very small 5-10 knot range, this is great if you live somewhere where the wind is always the same but we don’t, we live in the UK, where the wind is changing all the time, so having a kite with a bit of extra range like the Chaos makes sense.

Icing
Well you are definitely not going to miss this kite when it arrives at the beach, it’s the boldest and most flamboyant kite I think I have ever seen. The Chaos kites are sold with the wildcard limited edition colours, this means that you can’t choose what colour kite you want, every kite is different with so many combinations of colours so you could end up with a beauty or one what looks like a festival raver’s trousers.

VERDICT:
I was very impressed with the new and improved Chaos for 2014. They seemed to have taken everything they learnt from last year and refined it ever so slightly to create a great product. Although the Chaos is recommended for hardcore freestylers, the depower and stability of this kite will be appreciated by everyone regardless of their level and riding style. I’m not too sure bout the colours and the wildcard design, if I was spending a thousand quid on a kite I would want to know what colour I was getting.
