NOBILE 50/FIFTY SET: KITEBOARD + KITE 2017
With the 50/Fifty we have achieved what our riders (who worked on the board’s construction together with the Nobile engineers) really cared and waited for: the perfect grip during carves and tricks, coupled with massive pop, comfort and safety during landing.
It is all possible thanks to the best and latest Nobile technologies. The Multichannel bottom and Hydrodynamic Rocker ensure perfect control during carves and turns at the highest speed, as well as enable the use of smaller fins, thus increasing the freestyle abilities of the board.
As the rider’s safety is Nobile’s priority, we have also adjusted the flex engineering to take into account those riding in boots. Using the perfectly engineered construction, and carbon fibres in the upper part of the board between the bindings, this ensures that the board’s tips always stay on the surface. This increases the chances of landing even after the most difficult tricks, while you don’t have to worry about your joints.
In this board we have used Pre-Stress technology, which exploits the extra properties of the wood. While others just use the geometrical features of a multichannel bottom, Nobile achieve a totally different technological level. Pre-Stress lets us create a thinner, lighter board, while strengthening its construction to the maximum at the same time. Increased torsion resistance and additional cumulation of energy inside the core help the board’s upwind ability significantly and give it an unbelievable, unique pop.
The board is equipped with two sets of inserts – for boots and straps riding which allows you to set up the centre of gravity on the board perfectly.
50/Fifty is the Superman of kites. It will do anything you want in the blink of an eye and is used by all Nobile pro-riders.
We have combined the advantages of C-shape kites with complete, stiff bridling, thus getting the best features of both types of kite.
The 50/Fifty quickly generates huge power that remains during tricks and allows you to reduce the power immediately. It is also characterized by an immediate reaction
to steering and an incredibly connected feeling on the bar. It is extremely stable and easy to relaunch, and is very light which makes it fast, responsive and provides
a wide wind range.
The innovations here are extra reinforcements and the new material – Double Ripstop Teijin – which has been tested in the most difficult conditions. It is superdurable
and resistant to mechanical damage, as well as climactic damage, such as that from salt water, high temperature and sand.
