2022 Nobile NHP Split Foil
Responding to a demand from their customers, Nobile designed and produced a specific freeride twintip board for hydrofoiling, the world’s first split foil twintip, allowing you the versatility to enjoy a range of wind conditions with just one board, while also offering easier travel and lower transit costs that are enjoyed with a split board. No extra costs, and no unwanted hassle at the airport… another travel-friendly solution from Nobile!
The board has a 3D wood sandwich-construction and a precision designed X-Reactive Flex which, combined with the Hydrodynamic rocker line, translates into a seriously comfortable ride that is forgiving of mistakes, enhances comfort and increases maneuverability. Rectangular channels on the tips and a slightly thicker edge guarantee super upwind performance and stability when riding.
The Hydrodynamic rocker also allows the board to perform well in chop, while a Split W-Connection (4th generation) maintains the rocker line and the high-performance capabilities of the board. The split also enables easier transportation and storage and reduces extra luggage charges… it’s a true travel-friendly board.
HYDRO-FOIL TWIN TIP: They've reinforced and stiffened the construction in selected areas to optimize the board for hydrofoil riding.
The set-up is super lightweight, making it perfect for cruising and jumping, and has impressive maneuverability. The board can be ridden with straps or strapless. So all you need for your next kite trip is the NHP Split Foil board with our Zen Hydrofoil, easily packed into the Nobile Check-In Bag alongside two kites and all your other travel necessities. No extra costs, and no unwanted hassle at the airport…another travel-friendly solution from Nobile!
- APS – Added Pre-Stress Technology: 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.
- W – Connection (4th generation): Available in all Nobile Splitboards. 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 strong connection and offers premium durability and improved comfort. Pending Patent No. P403352.
- CARBON: Carbon construction in Nobile boards gives an extra stiffness that makes the board pop and react even better then regular boards. Carbon models are the lightest constructions on the market. If you’re looking for a flat water machine there is definitely nothing better then NHP carbon models. Additionally the carbon layer makes the board look futuristic and more aggressive.
- 3D Technology: Developed by Nobile is still an unmatched milestone in the area of kiteboarding technology.Advanced flex management makes it extraordinarily comfortable on landings, gives it magnificent impact resistance and tons of control.3D Technology allows more flex in selected areas of the board.As a result, the board features shorter reaction time and better response, whilst still remaining easy to ride and forgiving.
- EPC – 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Double Trust Rectangular Channels: The technology behind the Double Trust Rectangular Channels has been worked out after profound analysis of the production stages. Their unique deep, rectangular shape ensures unprecedented grip in all directions, stability while maneuvering, and making the ride effortless at the same time. These channels allow you to use shorter fins in twintips and only two fins in wave boards. Thanks to channel-making technology, we maintained the best elements of our boards: responsiveness, flex, thin board structure and a light weight.
- DAS – 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.
