Nobile NHP Splitboard

Nobile's NHP Splitboard allows you to enjoy worldwide kiteboarding and save your travel expenses. Nobile's unique W-Connection system allows you to demount the board in just few seconds and pack it into a standard sized holiday bag together with the rest of your travel gear. The NHP Split board is dedicated to travellers, freeriders and worldwide explorers looking for smooth performance and taking the most from the joy of kiting. The increased flex pattern (the board is 20% softer then the regular NHP) also provides comfort and relaxing ride.

If freestyle or high performance twin-riding is your aim - then the Nobile NHP is sure to please. Big air freestyle performance bias without compromising on comfort making it ideal for riders looking for high power riding, explosive POP and controlled landings.

Rectangular channels on the tips guarantee super upwind performance and stability when riding and jumping on the NHP Split, and a perfectly designed Hydrodynamic rocker line improves the comfort, maneuverability and pop. The rocker means the board performs well in chop, while a Split W-Connection (4th
generation) maintains the rocker lines and the performance capabilities of the board.

The NHP board has always set the standards in kiteboarding technology. Massive POP, limitless grip , impressive top speed, comfortable landings, smooth control and easy ride made the NHP one of the best selling high-performance boards on the market. The NHP makes riding a dream, no matter what the conditions of the water. This board cuts through chop like butter and boosts as high as you dare. The NHP is a performance oriented, all conditions freestyle machine, that’s still forgiving and easy to ride.

The new 3D Construction shaping now makes it possible to accurately control the flex both longtiudinally (tip-to-tip) and laterally (side-to-side) through the board. Stiffer with less flex along the longitudinal axis helps hold the edge for longer before exploding from the water (necessary for huge air), whilst softer flex across its width makes fast, dynamic and comfortable landings possible. The stiffer straighter tips also aid to provide better speed, earlier planing and an almost complete reduction of spray.

To reduced unwanted spray - Nobile have re-designed their unique Hydrodynamic Rocker Line to increase the tip lift. Nobile 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.

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 666 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 NHP Splitboard range represents the highest level of performance kiteboard from Nobile. These boards are designed to be pushed to their limits by riders of all levels from intermediate to pro. Fast planning, incredible upwind performance, maximum grip and extreme POP are all characteristics of this range are apparent in all water conditions from absolute glass through to vicious chop.

  • New widths allows the perfect size for every rider.
  • W-Connection for easy travelling and transporting.
Who is the board designed for:

Without the benefits of the Hydrodynamic rocker these size boards would be relegated to light wind use only but now for the first time it's possible to have a wide board that has plenty of control in high winds and more POP than you'll know what to do with. Nobile suggest you try at least one size bigger than you would normally ride as the benefits of a larger board are well balanced with the outstanding control previous boards displayed.

The new Nobile NHP offers unheard of levels of fun in a unashamedly high performance board.

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.

W-Connection:

Allows you to separate the board in half in seconds and pack it into your standard luggage together with the rest of your travel gear.

Provides a strong connection and offers premium durability and improved comfort.

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.

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.

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.
