2017 Nobile NHP 134cm Board
Predictable power development, direct bar feel, intuitive steering and plenty of “sheet-in-and-go” are just a few characteristics that make the Pivot one of the most sought-after kites on the market. Adapting to a wide variety of wind and wave conditions, this kite features a medium aspect ratio for substantial low-end power, easy jumping and great upwind performance. Dynamic and responsive, it pivots quickly and easily on a small axis of rotation—with minimal power increase through turns—for super-smooth carving through waves and enhanced control going into and out of kiteloops.
Now constructed with Quad-Tex—the most advanced kite canopy material in existence—the Pivot is livelier and more responsive than ever. The stronger, stiffer fabric transfers energy more directly putting riders in complete control.
Easy-handling, well-rounded and incredibly versatile, it’s clear to see how the Pivot has become the all-around choice for everyone, everywhere.
The NHP is a top-class board in which all the Nobile technologies have been used. It is perfect for freestyle and big air, without compromising on comfort and upwind performance. We have achieved this effect thanks to the Pre-Stress technology which magically stretches the wood fibres by weaving them and laminates it with glass fabrics in such an outstretched form. Owing to this unique Nobile technology, the board gains bigger torsion resistance which translates into fantastic upwind abilities and massive pop for jumps. Pre-Stress maintains energy within the board which, combined with perfectly chosen flex engineering, ensures low weight, responsiveness and exceptionally soft landings. The construction is a combination of Elliptical Concave – which gives freedom of manoeuvres and great upwind performance – and Double Concave Tips Channels. Together with Pre-Stress they guarantee the perfect ride, solid jumps and smooth landings. The specially designed Hydrodynamic Rocker offers massive pop and take-off during jumps, making every trick easy and fluid. The asymmetric shape, with the extended backside edge, allows easy and more effective curves and turns, and performs very well in all conditions, from flat through to choppy conditions with small waves. Among NHP sizes you will also find the low-wind version of this model. Construction of these sizes is based on the Elliptical Concave and Flat Hydrodynamic Rocker, and then modified in order to keep the NHP characteristics at
these extended sizes.
