Nobile NHP 2020 Kiteboard

From: £594.00

The 2020 Nobile NHP is a freestyle freeride model, that is easy to ride in all conditions, from flat water, through slight chop, up to small waves.

Design details

FREERIDE / FREESTYLE

SIZES: 133x40 / 136x41 / 139x42 / 142x43

Precision trickery in ultimate comfort. The NHP is our freestyle board for the win. Built to be an easy ride in all conditions, an enhanced rocker line allows the NHP to eat up choppy waters without affecting the board’s performance. Combined with the precision-designed X-Reactive Flex, this translates into a seriously comfortable ride, that forgives rider mistakes. Freestyle tricks can be tuned-in perfectly thanks to the manoeuvrability offered by the shorter toe-side edge, while the longer back-side edge equates to better upwind performance. Full control is retained in any conditions thanks to the board’s Hydrodynamic Rocker Line and Dynamic Asymmetrical Shape. There is also a low-wind version of this model in the NHP size range, with a construction based on Elliptical Concave and Flat Hydrodynamic Rocker solutions, modified to keep the integral NHP properties, but in a bigger size.

FOR WHOM?
For everybody who wants to go freeride or freestyle. If you want a comfortable board which gives precision during freestyle tricks, it’s the one for you.

Tech specs

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.

HYDRODYNAMIC ROCKERLINE
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.

HONEYCOMB
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.

WOODCORE
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.

TRIAX
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.

GLOSSY LACQUER
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.
