Nobile NHP Overview
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 kite shape concept development to create a completely new style of freestyle kite.
The criteria for performance was clear fast 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 conditions. 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 with out the compromises normally inherent with such high performance equipment.
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 its 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.
Nobiles 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.
