NHP Carbon is quite simply one of the best boards available on the market which performs exceptionally well in all conditions and riding styles – whether freestyle or freeride. Thanks to the use of carbon we have achieved low weight as well as even better traction and board control. Every minor impulse transfers into the board and triggers an immediate reaction. The NHP Carbon pops perfectly, and controls the edge during carves precisely. It’s a reliable board for years. The construction is a combination of Elliptical Concave – which gives freedom of manoeuvres and great upwind performance – and Double Concave Tips Channels which, together with Pre-Stress technology, guarantees perfect riding track, solid jumps and perfect landings. The specially designed Hydrodynamic Rocker offers massive pop and take-off during jumps and the Rocker, combined with a properly suited flex, ensures exceptional comfort. The unique attributes of this board have been possible due to the patented Pre-Stress technology which makes the most out of the wood and carbon fibres, delivering a unique board. Pre-Stress maintains energy within the board which, combined with perfectly chosen flex engineering, ensures low weight, responsiveness and exceptionally smooth landings.
For intermediate to advanced riders looking for high-end performance and a luxuryboard which handles all conditions.
• Carbon fabrics combined with APS technology make the board more reactive anddynamic.
• Minimal board weight makes each task on the water easier.
• Generous Rocker guarantees comfort in chop and exceptional board agility.
• Asymmetric outline ensures great upwind and carving performance while ridingswitched.
• Elliptical Concave allows you to plane quickly and ride smoothly.
• Double Concave channels guarantee perfect traction and upwind performance
APS Technology added Pre-stress
Prestressing means the intentional creation of initial tension in a structure for the purpose of improving its strength properties.In kiteboarding, pre-stress allows the board to be loaded with energy during production. Storing the energy inside the board makes it a bit more stiff and much more torsion resistant, which results in astonishing POP. Pre-Stress technology also allows us to build thinner and lighter boards, yet still more durable.
Elliptical Progressive Concave
Combines the advantages of both a flat-bottomed board and concave. The tail area is completely flat, whilst the centre section of the board features concave. This shape benefits from earlier planning.
CAV - Complete Anti-Vibration Technology
By using advanced core materials, laminates and variable flex zones, we managed to eliminate almost all vibrations that occur during the ride.CAV not only makes the ride smoother and faster, but also provides exceptional grip in all conditions.
Developed after careful analysis of water movement under the kiteboard.Hydrodynamic Profile is designed to reduce water drag, optimizing the board shape directly to the water flow. The advantages over traditional rocker with a flat center are increased board speed and improved acceleration.
Dynamic Asymmetrical Shape
Designed around the Human Concept, to enhance your performance and work in harmony with your body. We have tailored the outline of the heel side rail to provide more grip, better upwind performance and maximum POP. On the weaker toe side, the curve radius is increased to improve the carving potential and comfort. At the same time DAS decreases the foot pressure necessary to hold an edge.
The backbone of our tech advanced large surface boards. A blend of superlight core materials and wood, developed to reduce the overal weight of the kiteboard.
There is no better material for a board core than wood. With its harmonious characteristic, combining strength, flex, light weight and vibration damping, wood is still the uncrowned king of core materials.
Careful paint jobs not only magnifies colors and makes your board the best looking equipment on the spot, but it also protects the kiteboard graphic from fading.
