Apparently, the Cabrinha Crosswing v2 has two inflation points: 1) the leading edge + 1 split strut and 2) the other split strut.

Agreed, good review by Tucker at MacKite.

In my previous comment, my speculation about the two inflation points and 3 bladders was incorrect. From Tucker's video, I see that inflating the 2 center struts to 11 psi for rigidity (with one shared inflation point) and then the LE to safer 6 PSI (using a 2nd inflation point) makes a lot of sense.

Perhaps the biggest flaw I heard of was the lateral flexibility of the mini-booms ....but that seems to be an almost inevitable consequence of the stanchions holding the rigid mini booms far enough away from the strut.

Overall, I really liked the Cabrinha Crosswing X2, both features described and performance evidenced from Tucker's riding.

Great video.  They clearly put a lot of thought into that wing.  True V2.  Cool that the strut(s) inflate to 11.  That looks much stiffer and nicer than I had imagined.  Handles look pretty good as well but how they went so far and still left them partially floppy is beyond me.

I had the hance to try it in 5m size.
I liked the mini booms, much nicer than all the other handles i tried.
Honestly i did not feel that floppy thing Tucker was talking about in the video.
I still prefer the boom feeling but that’s a personal opinion.
I thought the wing was lighter but in the air it is very very stable and i was impressed how you can jybe turning it litterally with 2 fingers.

I think the inside strut of the new Cabrinha wing, which is attached to the canopy, acts like a camber inducer found in windsurfing race sails.  The draft is held in place by this strut, which may give it more power, especially in lighter air and may make it a little more stable throughout its wind range.

Maybe this guy doesn't have enough pressure in the strut? Why is the front handle in this pic 20-30 degrees offset from the rear handle. His front hand is jammed against the back of that handle. Just get rid of the lower part of the strut and add a mini boom, can't be that hard. Won't purchase another wing that doesn't have a well thought out boom.

Not much new here.... but here is unboxing, inflation and a few 'demo pumps' of new Cabrinha X2 on Damien Leroy's Facebook. He has a few other shots of the wing in action in other posts.

It would be fairly easy to make a connector boom to span between those two mini boom handles. A connector would make transitions easier and add rigidity to the handles. I'm thinking a carbon fiber tube a little bigger than the mini-booms, sectioned in half where the boom overlaps the handles. I'd stick loop velcro on the handle where the overlap happens, and hook material inside the section to hold things in place while wrapping the attachment loops. Eliminating handle twist goes a long way in stiffening the handles. I'm going to have to get one to try this. 7 or 6?? Hmm.

I like this idea!!

If using a harness line, would you add it to the connector boom? (Could harness line-inflatable boom connection points be useful for the connector boom attachment?)
