The most critical piece of equipment in kiteboarding is the Control System. A system that you not only you rely on for your safety and well being, it’s also the direct link between you and the elements.
A lot of work goes into Kite Design. The Cab Design Works Team works countless hours tuning and modifying the way a kite feels in order to make it the highest performing product on the market.In order to get the most out of all the work, you need a control system that gives you a direct connection to the kite.This connection needs to be intuitive and seamless in use, allowing you to focus on having the most fun in the elements.
Introducing the COS.
The goal in the development of the COS was to make its use so easy, that the rider can concentrate on their next jump, or wave.
This is the most feature rich control system to date, but the package is so simple and intuitive to use that anyone can feel the full benefits.

VARIABLE LINE LENGTH
The new variable Line lengths can greatly adjust your riding style and the kites performance. The COS comes stock with 22m (18m + 4M extensions) and 2m extensions. This gives an option for 18,20,22, or 24m line lengths.
1 X SAFETY
Dual PU Tubes keep the clean smooth finish that Cabrinha riders are used to, but allow for an independent chamber for the 1X Security line to pass through.
The new dual tube auto unwind feature allows you to focus on the next trick at hand without having to manually untwist your front lines. The Ceramic Bearings keep friction to an absolute minimum. Just unpin the bar, pull it in and you’re ready to go.
"The COS is the perfect connection between me and my kite. It gives me complete control and awareness while in the sky and allows precise input when I need it most. The ergonomic new safety system gives me complete confidence in the wildest of conditions while allowing a full range of movement when the bar is pulled in and levered either side during Kiteloops. It’s a do it all bar for any level of kiteboarder." - Lorenzo Casati
