Thanks to its perfect construction and reliability, T5 got into the PRO line. It’s a verylight board and its flex has been adjusted to perform well in all conditions. Big air and smooth landing becomes easy. The T5 is a great board with unique properties on the water. We have achieved this effect by including the Pre-Stress technology which magically stretches the wood fibres by weaving and laminating them with glass fabrics in their outstretched form. Thanks to this unique technology, Nobile boards gain 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. Furthermore, by using the Wavy Channels system and a Flat Continuous Rocker, we have achieved easy manoeuvring with full board control, while the asymmetrical outline with extended backside edge allows easy and more effective curves. The T5 is perfect for freeride and freestyle elements. It performs well in any given conditions, from flat through to choppy water with small waves.
From beginners to advanced riders looking for an advanced freeride board with freestyle ambitions.
• Wavy Channels System makes the board ride like it is on rails.
• Improved pre-stress technology provides outstanding edge grip and pop, as well as strengthening the board’s reactivity.
• Asymmetric outline facilitates curves and turns without any negative impact on upwind riding.
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.
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.
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.
