The NHP is a top-class board in which all the Nobile technologies have been used. It is perfect for freestyle and big air, without compromising on comfort and upwind performance. We have achieved this effect thanks to the Pre-Stress technology which magically stretches the wood fibres by weaving them and laminates it with glass fabrics in such an outstretched form. Owing to this unique Nobile technology, the board gains bigger torsion resistance which translates into fantastic upwind abilities and massive pop for jumps. Pre-Stress maintains energy within the board which, combined with perfectly chosen flex engineering, ensures low weight, responsiveness and exceptionally soft landings. The construction is a combination of Elliptical Concave – which gives freedom of manoeuvres and great upwind performance – and Double Concave Tips Channels. Together with Pre-Stress they guarantee the perfect ride, solid jumps andsmooth landings. The specially designed Hydrodynamic Rocker offers massive pop and take-off during jumps, making every trick easy and fluid. The asymmetric shape, with the extended backside edge, allows easy and more effective curves and turns, and performs very well in all conditions, from flat through to choppy conditions with small waves. Among NHP sizes you will also find the low-wind version of this model. Construction of these sizes is based on the Elliptical Concave and Flat Hydrodynamic Rocker, and then modified in order to keep the NHP characteristics at these extended sizes.
For advanced riders looking for an exceptional big air, freestyle board without compromising on comfort or upwind performance. Designed to ride with straps.
- Generous Rocker guarantees comfort in chop and exceptional board agility.
- The Double Concave is responsible for hard edging and staying on track.
- 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 when riding switch.
- Elliptical Concave allows you to plane quickly and ridesmoothly.
- Double Concave channels guarantee perfect traction and fantastic 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.
X-Reactive Flex System
X layout of Carbon and Kevlar is a perfect combination. While Carbon supports rebound forces and edge grip, Kevlar reduces vibrations to minimum. Together this results in excellent pop, quick response and optimal torsion.
This aerospace product has found its sweet spot in kiteboarding technology as well. It's 90% lighter than wood, but has great durability.Placed in different areas depending on board model, it reduces weight, gives pop, improves tensional response and allows accurate flex adjustment.
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.
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.
