Nobile Flying Carpet
Nobile Flying Carpet
The Nobile Flying Carpet is a light wind machine! The synergy of advanced technology and excellent shape gives the rider unmatched upwind performance and previously unattainable light wind fun with unexpected freeride possibilities.
We all know the wind conditions when a bigger board is, quite simply, a better board. The Flying Carpet was designed not to miss those days when everyone else is on the beach waiting for the wind. It is a supreme light wind creation and is lively and responsive, and truly surprises with the kind of performance and comfort you would not expect from a board of its size.
This board will be appreciated by anyone who rides on lakes or low-wind spots and is ideal for your first tacks / going upwind. It will prove itself in all situations where the bigger riding surface is needed (so it is also a great board for bigger riders).
The Nobile Flying Carpet also uses Nobile Pre-Stress technology. During the production process, Nobile "freeze and store" the energy in the board construction. This energy is then for your disposal just when you need it. It benefits with more pop, fast reaction, better grip, manoeuvrabiliy and anything you want to use it for. This technology also allows Nobile to make the Flying Carpet lighter than ever.
Versatility has been enhanced by utilizing Nobile's new Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline. Focusing mainly on the toe-side edge, means that the test winning rail grip, early planing and upwind ability of the Nobile Flying Carpet range still remains.
The new mould allows Nobile to add more flex into the fin areas of the board without effecting the central nose and tail sections that are responsible for the higher performance characteristics. Nobile have also added a high gloss UV stable top foil to the board to ensure it's good looks last forever.
The Nobile Flying Carpet is also a great board for first time riders and kite schools making your learning easier, faster and more comfortable.
Nobile Flying Carpet Features:
- Pre-Stress Technology for improves response.
- Elliptical Progressive Concave.
- Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline increases versatility and comfort.
- Wider stance options for more stable riding position.
- Fin Shims for stronger fin / board connection.
- Widths for every rider.
- Smaller fins for looseness and manoeuvrability.
Who is the board designed for:
For the best performing board on the market for light winds, the Flying Carpet will provide you with the perfect balance of maximum response and manoeuvrability for upwind performance in lighter wind conditions. This board is also safe and easy to use for first time kiters and kite schools needing a nice and easy to use kiteboard.
Nobile Next Pads:
Built of light EVA foam, they’re not only light and don’t absorb water, but they are also comfortable anduser-friendly. Their major advantage is the comfortand the ability to adapt to any foot shape. An ergonomic shape has been re-designed – thepad surface is the reflection of the human foot andcombined with flexible plastic material it ensures even better foot grip during the ride, which givesyou the solid control over the board. In addition,the platform at the toes improves control overthe board and precision in transferring the body movement to the board.
New designed straps firmly hold the foot in the pad without any uncontrolled movements, while additional pads on the edges improve the comfort in most delicate foot parts. Another layer was added in the toe area, in order to press the toes to the pad surface. Eco leather guarantees the quality and solidity of the product, the neoprene inside improves thecomfort, while the wide Velcro-fastened buckle makes the whole fastening solid and reliable. The strap itself is fastened inwards, which was provedby the ergonomics tests – it is also less prone toaccidental catching in by the kite lines.
Nobile Click 'N' Go Fin System:
All fins and grab handles are produced in the KISS tool-free mounting standard. It takes just few seconds to mount/demount fins with your bare hands. Screwdriver is no longer necessary.
Fins are made in extremely high visibility, "ultra orange" colour, so you always know where you dropped your precious kiteboard.

APS Technology - 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.
The Human Concept - 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.
Nobile’s 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.
Nobile 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, Nobile 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.
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.
Elliptical Progressive Concave:
Elliptical Progressive Concave combines the added advantages of both the flat bottomed board and the concave shape. The tail area of the board is flat allowing increased flex for comfort and smooth turning whilst the centre section of the board has up to 5mm of concave providing earlier planing, extra rail grip and a smoother ride.
Hydrodynamic Rocker Line:
A conventional rocker with it's flatter centre section and increasing radius towards the tail causes the water to accelerate along its length as the distance it has to travel increases.
This acceleration causes drag on the board. Nobile's hydrodynamic rocker contains most of it's radius in the centre of the board.
The straight action enables the water to maintain it's direction of travel all the way along the bottom of the board making the drag from the water to be reduced to a minimum as it travels the shortest distance possible.
Nobile have increased the lift in the tips of the Hydrodynamic Rocker Line. This subtle change increases versatility (particularly when switching from heel-side to toe-side) and dramatically reduces unwanted spray whilst maintaining all other benefits the Nobile boards have become famous for.
Complete Anti-Vibration Control:
It is a little known fact that proper flex control in a kiteboard is not solely determined by the deck's 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 that 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 laminate provides exceptional rail grip in all conditions and increases rider comfort and control.
