WHY NHP SNOWKITE?
The NHP Snowkite is a board completely dedicated to be used in the snow with akite. It’s not just a regular snowboard with a kiteboarding brand logo. When designing the Snowkite we used all our experience and passion to develop the best performing board on the market, whether for snow or ice. You’re looking atmassive pop, a versatile flex pattern, and aunique 20-meters progressive sidecutradius. In short: this is the weapon of choice for all snowkiters. Our unique construction results in an insanely comfortable ride,without being forced torideupwind all the time, while the Nobile Snowkite provides extraordinary grip, bothon toe and heel-side edge, allowing you to hold morespeed–especially when going upwind. Our patented Snake Transition offers tons of control and response, even on icy and hard-pack conditions, while still maintaining a fun flex. This board is also just as happy being used as a regular snowboard for those days when the wind isn’t playing ball.
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.
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.
Additional biax fiber laminate underneath the binding area improves power transfer to the edges with great damping properties.
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.
ABS Sandwich Construction
This industry standard construction provides direct power transfer to the edges and vibration damping, resulting in easy to handle and precise boards.
