Cabrinha Kites, a subsidiary of Pryde Group Americas, of Miami, Fla., has recalled about 750 Cabrinha Kiteboard control systems. The point of connection between the kiteboard’s trim line and the depower mainline can break and cause a loss of control, posing a risk of injury. This recall involves three TrimLite Cleat™ trim control systems for Cabrinha kiteboards, including the Overdrive 1X with TrimLite, the standard 1X with TrimLite and the Chaos 1X with TrimLite models. A trim line connects the kite to the handle held by the user, allowing the user to control the kite. Only trim lines with white tape below the loop connecting the trim line to the cleat are part of this recall.
The control systems are comprised of a light-weight control bar to control and depower the kite, a set of flying lines and a harness loop/quick release (QR) mechanism. The Overdrive 1X with TrimLite, model number KS6CSODQC, was sold in two sizes 48 cm and 56 cm. The standard 1X with TrimLite control system, model number KS6CSFXQL, was sold in three sizes 42 cm, 52 cm and 60 cm. The Chaos 1X control system, model number KS6CSCHFX, measures 44 cm. The model numbers are located on a cloth tab attached to the bungee line restrainers at the end of the bars. The firm has received four reports of the kiteboard trim lines breaking. No injuries have been reported.
The kites were sold at watersports stores nationwide from July 2015 through August 2015 for between $430 and $530 for the control systems. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled kiteboard control systems and return them to the place of purchase to have a free replacement part installed.
