Ever wonder how to wrap your Cabrinha Control Bar so that the floaties or trim adjustment doesn’t get in the way? We’ll show you how to wrap your bar so that everything stays clean. This way also helps preserve the middle tubing. If you follow our steps, all four lines should be equal at the end or close to being equal. When you’re ready for your next session, you’ll be able to lay the bar out quicker.
We used the Cabrinha Fixed Length Control Bar but if you have an adjustable bar or the adjustable bar with Recoil Trim System, you’ll want to wrap your bar this way. We like the Recoil Trim bar especially for shorter riders so that the depower system is closer within reach. The downside to the Recoil bar is that there’s more “clutter” above the bar and when you’re wrapping your bar up it can get in the way. The key point to remember when you wrap your Cabrinha Control Bar is to get all four lines where they meet the bar (above the Recoil on the Recoil bars) and figure eight the bar from the bottom side.
- Circling the line around the bar – This will cause you to take ten extra minutes trying to detangle the lines before you set up. Cabrinha Lines have a nice coating and are braided in such a way that figure 8s will keep the lines pretty separated.
- Bending the center line tubing around the bar – You will cause stress points on the tubing which will then lead to it breaking. You don’t need to do anything with the tubing. Just make sure to keep the Chicken Loop to the side of the figure 8s, this will make it easier for you to lay out the lines.
