The idea of pre-stress was probably already known architects in ancient Rome and was used during the construction of the Colosseum. Prestressing means the intentional creation of permanent stresses in a structure for the purpose of improving its performance under various service conditions. Nobile Pre-stress is the technology inspired by our 3D Construction. Now we took this famous solution and, what seemed to be impossible, upgraded it to the next level. Pre-stress allows us to load the board with energy already during the production process. Storing the energy in the board means itâ€™s even more reactive, responsive and livelier. It also allows us to build thinner (means: lighter!!! ) but yet still more durable than any other boards on the market.
Today’s riding styles result in heavy impacts and with the wider stances currently used, such loading can result in the board “inverting” and the rocker becoming convex, which normally leads to the tips catching and the rider coming to an unwanted stop. Since 2006, when we introduced the Elliptical Concave, we’re still improving the technology that combines the advantages of both a flat-bottomed board and concave. The 3D Construction allows us to create differing flex, both longitudinally (along its length) and laterally (across its width), throughout the board. Our unique and yet still unequalled technology allows the board to arch across its width, providing extraordinary comfort on landing. In the same time it maintains stiffness along board`s length ensuring there is no flattening of the rocker on impact, thus vastly reducing the chances of the board catching.Reducing the longitudinal flex has the additional advantage that the rocker line can be made fuller without the resulting loss of speed normally associated with this type of change. The deeper rocker eliminates spray and reduces the possibility of nose-diving when riding through chop and waves at speed. Shorter time reaction and less power which we have to use for initiate reaction of board is a re-
sult of early prestress of material obtained in the press under high pressure. Thanks to these innovations board does not deform, losing its sophisticated features, during normal using. Additionally, during hard landings board works better than great. Traditional construction board may undergo deformation longitudinally loosing speed and overloaded the knees. The 3D Construction in our products makes landing faster and easier without this inconvenience.
Nobile´s Human Concept is about harmonizing the needs, requirements, and sometimes limitations of our bodies, with technical advancements in equipment as we strive for the ultimate synergy between rider and material. Neither boards nor kites are able to function alone….. it is the rider that connects everything and it’s too easy to let the fanatical pursuit of ultimate performance dominate, forgetting that we riders may not always have the necessary physiology to make effective use of these advances, nor the desire to sacrifice other equally important factors, such as comfort and safety. Nobile’s Human Concept acknowledges that our goal remains ultimate performance through technological and innovative progress, but in COMBINATION with the advantages and limitations our bodies naturally feature, allowing riders to enjoy and appreciate the quality and achieve maximum performance from the equipment they are riding.

is the next step in kiteboarding evolution. 2HD it’s an exceptional and unrivaled mix of technological advancement with long experience in creating high qualitative products. This project is a synergy of advantages of our best boards in all range. Super speed and explosive pop are the main advantages of this model. Taking what’s essential in Hydro and Aerodynamic we developed this unique design of double-profiled bottom. This one of a kind shape was created to bring the most performance to advanced riders. The result is the fastest and best performing board in Nobile range. 2HD is even that good, it may easily compete with race boards. Twin Tip faster than a traditional race board? It has to be the 2HD! Over 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water. 70% is also the amount of 2HD’s hydrodynamic base profile we did flat. Inside flatter profile makes the board extremely fast (less water resistance) and increases longitudinal stability. The other 30% of the 2HD’s surface is outside deeper rocker. It increases versatility and edge grip. What is more, it also dramatically reduces unwanted spray in choppy water, makes your riding smother, easier and more comfortable. DoubleHydroDynamic is also loaded with Nobile Pre-Stress technology. During the production process we “freeze and store” energy in the board construction. This energy is then for your disposal just when you need it. It benefits with more pop, faster reaction, better grip and maneuverability. This technology also allows us to make boards lighter than ever. We also added our explosive Pop Grover tech for sky-high jumps.

T5 - KOINOBORI The progress continues - once again we redesigned and improved the T5. To have it done properly, we’ve teamed up with aerodynamic engineers (their everyday job is to design plane wings) and together we’ve remade the T5 kite. The main goal was to improved the kite performance, while simultaneously maintaining those T5 characteristics that you liked so much. The resulting new, smoother profile of T5 – KOINOBORI is even more aerodynamic then the previous version. We’ve taken what’s the aerodynamics science has to offer and implemented it into this kite’s construction. The result surpassed all our expectations so much, that we ended up upgrading it`s name. All aerodynamics-driven improvements start from the new profile. We’ve redesigned the leading edge area, included new, flattened Wing Tips, thinner bridles and steering lines. T5 - KOINOBORI is now much faster, and more stable at the same time, even in gusty wind conditions. Amazingly enough, the lift and hang time have also improved greatly. Incredible low-end wind performance also allows you to use kites smaller than usual, so now you have more versatile tool for your kiteboarding passion. Additionally, side-strut kite valves have been moved to the outer sides of the struts, to gain the “catch – free” location. Now it’s almost impossible for the bridles to catch the valve when launching the kite. Already impressed? Breathe slowly, because that’s still not the end ... T5-KOINOBORI also features an innovative, reinforced bridles attachment points. The kite is now equipped with double layer of Dacron where it’s most exposed to risk of breaking the leading edge. Reinforced V-attach mounting system featured in the crucial point of bridle’s attach area – makes the kite stronger. Good news for Kiteloop fans – no more problems with this feature! The T5-KOINOBORI features superior, direct-feeling control, improved predictability, and perfectly balanced bar pressure. The huge wind range, lift and hang time remain, but with a massive improvement to the low-end power and re-launch capabilities. If you desire an easy re-launching kite with outstanding power range, smooth and precise handling, focused on freeride but also suitable for big air, waves and even unhooked freestyle, then the T5KOINOBORI is a perfect choice.

N62 V2 After success with the N62, Nobile Kiteboarding introduced the N62 V 2.0 all-round kite - a more compact kite to its predecessor with improved turning speed, more constant power and progression focus, plus thanks to added reinforcements, the kite is now more durable and impact resistant. The new N62 delivers the latest generation of innovative design into the Nobile kite range - it’s compact shape and reduced aspect ratio offer super stability, as well as delivering easy power control, direct handling and instant relaunch. The new N62 is an ideal kite for riders who value ease and simplicity in their kiting, and for those who ride in demanding conditions where control is paramount. The N62 V2.0 features reduced sweep through the wing tips (compared to a traditional delta), ensuring phenomenal low-end performance, massive wind range and pivotal turning without the indirect, imprecise handling of a traditional delta. This kite delivers “Park and Ride” ease, allowing you to just concentrate on riding. It is extremely forgiving due to an excellent ‚sink back’ characteristic (the ability to drop back into the wind, instead of luffing and falling out the sky, should you get yourself too far under the kite). However, if the kite does get wet, the most effective relaunch system ever will have it back up in the air with the minimum of rider technique or effort. Reduced strut configuration, uncomplicated bridle and SMART pump II make rigging simple for all. The single point attachment for the front and rear lines means the rider doesn’t have to work out the different flying lines positions – there is only one universal position. The N62 V 2.0 also benefits from the excellent performance, quality and safety characteristic of the innovative Nobile Kiteboarding control bar and the revolutionary Fulcrum quick release. With ease at the forefront of its design, the N62 V 2.0 will give maximum safety and confidence to riders, pushing riding skills to the next level. Whatever your style or ability and whatever the riding conditions are, the new N62 introduces a new era of versatility and all-terrain performance.

NHP With 2 years in the development, Nobile Kiteboarding is happy to present to you the all new NHP. Recognizing the limitations of 5 line set ups we went back to the drawing board and drew on what we learnt from the recent N62 Delta concept development to create a completely new style of freestyle kite. The criteria for performance was clearâ€Śfast and direct feeling, axial turning, low bar pressure when un hooked and instant response to rider input, however we placed increased priority for 2010 on enhanced de-power range and super easy re-launch. Using a short and simple bridle also allowed us to reduce the size of the leading edge on the NHP resulting in a fast flying kite that climbs to the front of the window in all wind conditionsâ€Ś. An essential trait for a modern freestyle kite both for smooth power delivery after landing and for completing kite loops without stalling. The new 4 line NHP format has allowed us to increase light wind performance with no effect on the upper range handling and usability. For most riders this increased range will ensure no more than 2 kites are necessary for 90% of riding conditions. The kites of choice for KPWT winner Mike Blomvall, the new NHP will allow you to push your limits and improve your level without the compromises normally inherent with such high performance equipment.

Pop Grover This special shape cut is an another new technology that helps us on our way to the best board flex management ever. It’s like pieces of semtex mounted on tip and tail of the board to give you explosive pop, so you can now fly higher than anyone else on the spot. Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline: You can’t escape the fact that kite-boarding stances are not symmetrical; can you ride the same on your toe side and heel side edges? If not, then you have to ask yourself why your board has the same outline and fin position on the heel side and toe side edges. Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline is designed around their Human Concept, performance that is destined to enhance and work in harmony with your natural physiology, not fight against it. We have tailored the outline on your stronger heel side rail to have more grip, better upwind performance and maximum POP. On the weaker toe side, we have increased the curve radius and bought the fins closer to your feet improving the carving potential and comfort factor of the board when riding switch whilst at the same time radically decreasing the foot pressure needed to hold your edge. Hydrodynamic Rockerline A conventional rocker with it’s flatter centre section and increasing radius towards the tail causes the water to accelerate along it’s length as the distance it has to travel increases, this acceleration causes drag on the board. Our hydrodynamic rocker contains most of it’s radius in the centre of the board. The straight section enables the water to maintain it’s direction of travel all the way along the bottom of the board thus the drag from the water is reduced to a minimum as it’s travelling the shortest distance possible. We also have also tweaked the heel-side outline and moved the footstrap inserts to ensure minimal interference with water release on the rail - a major cause of spray.The major benefits of Hydrodynamic Rockerline are reduced water drag – increased board speed. Eliptical Progressive Concave Exclusively featured on all Nobile kiteboards since we introduced the concept in 2006, our Elliptical Progressive Concave combines the advantages of both a flat-bottomed board and concave. The tail area of the board is completely flat allowing the board to flex in the controlled fashion defined by us during testing to enhance control, comfort and performance whilst the centre section of the board has up to 5mm of concave providing earlier planning, extra rail grip and a smoother ride. It also allows to control much more accurately the flex in different areas of the board. CAV - Complete Anti-Vibration Technology It’s a little known fact that proper flex control in a kiteboard is not solely restricted to the decks overall deflection in response to pressure. Variable flex zones, flex response speeds and vibration control are all equally important factors. Fast flex response speeds can raise the performance characteristics of a board but can cause rail ‚chatter’ at speed leading to a loss of rail grip and a general lack of comfort. Reducing this ‚chatter’ or vibration through the use of advanced core materials and laminates provides exceptional rail grip in all conditions and increases ride comfort and control. UV Resistant Foils Having the best performing (and best looking?) board on the market won’t stop the feelings of disappointment if the colours start to fade after 6 months use. Our UV resistant foils ensures your board will look as good in six months as the day it came out of the wrapper.
IFS Pro The IFS Pro is the multi-density molded pad resulting in a foot bed system where the compression “ramps up” through its depth of travel. Heavy impacts sees each layer becoming progressively firmer, preventing any possibility of your foot coming into contact with the board, yet maintains the direct feeling for perfect synergy between the rider and the board. For 2011 we’ve totally redesigned both the footpad and the strap. The one of a kind, multi-destiny, 3D molded asymmetrical footpad not only adjust to rider’s unique foot shape, but also remembers it for the ultimate comfort and perfect fit. The new footpad consists of four PU layers. 3 of them: Medium, Hard and Soft with “remember the foot shape” feature are inside the footpad combined in perfect balance to give you maximum comfort and perform.
