There are many fantastic kiteboards, but only the Nobile Splitboard line lets you enjoy the freedom of travelling with a board wherever you want – whether by car, train or motorcycle. You just fold the board in two and pack it into the special Nobile bag. That’s all. The board doesn’t lose any of its properties when compared to classic kiteboard construction. This year we introduced the fourth generation of our W-Connection patented solution. The improved connection has been redesigned from scratch. It's shape has been changed completely, resulting in better distribution of the force. Furthermore, a new shape allows precise connecting and comfortable disconnecting the board. Some of the connection’s constructional elements have been reduced, while others have been replaced with durable composite. This has resulted in reduced weight, improved stiffness and durability at the connection points, as well as retaining the natural properties of the board, so the connection won’t impact comfort during the ride. The shape and construction are the combination of Elliptical Concave, which gives you the manoeuvrability and great upwind performance, and Double Concave Tips Channels. In addition, we have introduced high channels at the fins, which makes the board more stable, curves better against the wind and it’s ready to go with shorter fins. Owing to these technologies, we have achieved the perfect riding track, with confidence during jumps and perfection when landing. The specially designed Hydrodynamic Rocker guarantees massive pop and lift-off during jumps. The rocker combined with a properly suited flex ensures high comfort. Let us remind you: NHP Split is the only splitboard that can be folded in two and put into one of Nobile’s travel bags. It facilitates transporting boards, most of all in airlines, because YOU DON’T HAVE TO PAY ANY EXTRA FEES FOR TRANSPORTING SPORTS GOODS!
• Additionally higher channels on tips, owing to which the ride is stable, the board curves better and you can ride with shorter fins.
• Fourth-generation W-Connection – new shape and new internal structure increase the durability of connection and improve the comfort during the ride.
• Generous rocker guarantees comfort on chop and exceptional board agility.
• Top-quality glass fibres pressed in APS technology, combined with the wooden core, guarantee incredible pop and endurance.
• Asymmetric outline ensures great upwind and carving performance while riding switch.
• Elliptical concave allows you to plane quickly and ride smoothly.
• Double Concave channels guarantee perfect traction and perfect 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.
W - Connection
Available in all Nobile Splitboards. Allows you to separate the board in half in seconds and pack it into your standard luggage together with the rest of your travel gear. Provides strong connection and offers premium durability and improved comfort. Pending Patent No. P403352.
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.
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.
This layout of fibers transfers power directly to the edges and creates perfect flex. As a result the board features aggressive filling, quick response and harmonious flexibility.
