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 thatís 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.
