Hi Everyone,

miss you lots, and have a kite gear question. i really miss squamish and nitinat winds and need bigger kite soon).

I am thinking of buying a 14 m cabrinha, but i only have my north 2018 trust bar (for my dice). i'm having problems confirming if i can use this bar with the cabrinha. I suspect i will need some pigtails at very least for connecting it.

any suggestions?

It would work, but is it a "high Y" type or a "low V" type?

Cab kites use "low V" bars and I know some of North's kites use "high Y". I know the North Click bar can be converted from V to Y for this reason.

I wouldn't use a Y bar with a Cab kite.
