Notably, they have a unique line of split boards that pack up easily for travel and still rip on the water. Continue reading to see find out what’s new. Text and photos provided by Nobile.

The last decade at Nobile was marked by dynamic growth. We have shown how much we can improve in our beloved sport and how many innovations we are able to present. We have been continuously putting in a lot of effort to make kiteboarding – in all its variants – a popular sport that appeals to the masses. We have proven that everyone can become a kite “sailor”. In accordance with our Human Concept philosophy, we always pay great attention to user comfort and safety. We take the same principles into consideration when designing any equipment, both for new kiteboarders and professional riders.

Our products are available worldwide. We have our own bases, shops, service centers and a user-friendly online store.

We will continue to responsibly make our kites, boards and accessories reliable and solid, as they have been so far. For that we have been continually receiving sincere appreciation. That’s why we are so happy to find ourselves prestigiously ranked in IKSURFMAG’s three best brands on the market, according to your votes. Our kites have passed various tests to become the world’s top products. Our control bar is equipped with the first injection safety system on the market. It is valued for its simplicity and reliability. The KISS system in which accessories are mounted with butterflies and bare hands is the easiest and the most comfortable assembly method on the market. Our splitboards enjoy the well-deserved position of absolute bestseller among travelers, who fold them into their backpacks without paying extra fees for extra luggage. We have introduced the ZEN hydrofoil, also with a splitboard, which is truly sought-after. And all of these are complemented with our clothes from the Street collection, worn on a daily basis by many brand enthusiasts and beyond.

We can promise you that we are just warming up. Think: Kiteboarding, say: Nobile – this is our goal. That’s why we introduced many construction improvements to our collection. The joints in splitboards are even better, stronger and more precise. A new construction of the Infinity and Skim Foil boards surprises with its low weight and rigidity. We have expanded the available board size range, in order to meet customers’ expectations, but most of all, we have prepared the new collection design together with the best advertising agency in Poland and one of the best worldwide – Saatchi&Saatchi. We have named this collection Tribe&Futurism.

We believe that the combination of the highest quality and the modern, timeless design will stir your desire to get on the water, giving you a feeling of freedom thanks to the wind, water and a chance to commune with nature. Ladies and gentlemen, here it is – the 2018 Nobile Tribe&Futurism collection!

Tribe

Nowadays the need to be a member of a group is probably stronger than ever. Groups gather around subculture codes while relations are based on passion and understanding a common system of values. Young people function as contemporary tribes for whom we dedicate our TRIBE product line. Instead of rituals, they share a common passion; instead of a totem there is a kite spot, while tribe colors are replaced by the system of graphic signs and references. TRIBE is a mystical line with a reference to primal values and a close bond with nature. It creates the “tribe idea” – a group of young people sharing a common passion. This line represents all features of our boards: dynamics, great pop, speed and user comfort.

Futurism

This line has been born from the excitement of the movement and of dynamics. It combines futuristic fascination for mechanics and geometrical precision with minimalistic graphic solutions. There you can find a reference to machine technical schemes, as well as a beauty of the physics, recurrence of wave, momentum and power. It’s the love for energy, rhythm and precision of repeating that connects people who search for movement and adrenaline in their lives, as well as those who want to improve their moves. The purity and formal synthesis bring out the elegance of the line and graphic sophistication. This line is dedicated to those who look forward to the future, like Leonardo da Vinci. It expresses our passion for innovation in design, advanced materials and top-quality manufacturing processes.

Control Bars

TRUST CONTROL BAR
Size (cm): 46 (20m), 52 (23m)

Nobile Trust Control Bar is made of aluminum which ensures the construction lightness, as well as high durability and stiffness. Thanks to that, steering the kite is more precise. The central part of the bar is made of aluminum as well, which makes it extremely durable and wear through resistant, while light at the same time. The bar arms are wrapped up with a soft EVA foam. The foam surface is perforated and has hollows for fingers to provide a confident bar grip and high comfort during the ride.

Bar ends
Soft control bar ends, made of injected EVA foam provide high comfort and safety in case of an accidental hit. Thanks to integrated floaters, the bar stays on the water without any problems.

Quick Release safety system
Proven the best system on the market, the quick release system worked out by Nobile gives 100 percent safety during the ride. Ergonomic shape allows secure grip, when necessary. Properly fitted cleats enable unrestricted movement of the bar with quick release along the safety line. After activation, the system guarantees 100 per cent loss of kite power. The released system can be easily disassembled and put together in any situation outside or inside the water. The proper design ensures construction durability up to 500 kg.

Depower lines
Depower lines and safety line are made of super durable Spectra line and additionally secured with Teflon coating. Thanks to this, the lines do not wear through during use and easily slip through the hole in the bar. Carefully selected line length ensures 100 percent kite depowering.

DDB Dyneema lines
Lines running to the DDB Dyneema kite, made in the Netherlands, are the best and the most durable professional lines available on the market. Durability of front lines amounts up to 350 kg, and steering lines up to 250 kg at the diameter
less than 2 mm. Thanks to initial tension, they are characterized by high stretch resistance. Lines are Teflon coated which makes them stiff; they do not tangle and are resistant to the influence of seawater and sand.

Clam cleat depower system
The system of power regulation is based on a clam cleat . It’s simple, user-friendly, failure-free and light. It provides faster and more precise adjustment of kite power compared with any other system.

Fixing methods
The system can be hooked to the rider in a standard way or in suicide mode, preferred by more experienced kitesurfers.

Swivel
The swivel enables seamless uncoiling the front lines.

Leash
The well proven Nobile solution keeps the kite hooked to the kitesurfer in case of activating the safety system and during unhooked tricks. Equipped with quick release, it can be disarmed permanently. The durability of leash construction guarantees to bear the weight up to 250 kg.

Colours
The colour scheme – blue and orange – makes an identification easier and ensures very good bar visibility.

Nobile Pro Rider’s first choice.

This is a truly exceptional board and one of the best in Nobile’s history. It has been created for extreme freestyle riding and is both easy to control and very dependable during landings. With the 50/Fifty we have achieved what our riders (who worked on the board’s construction together with the Nobile engineers) really cared and waited for: the perfect grip during carves and tricks, coupled with massive pop, comfort and safety during landing.

It is all possible thanks to the best and latest Nobile technologies. The multi-channel bottom and hydrodynamic rocker ensure perfect control during high speed carves. As the rider’s safety is Nobile’s priority, we have also adjusted the flex engineering to take into account those riding in boots. The board is equipped with two sets of inserts – for riding with boots or straps, which allows you to set up the centre of gravity on the board perfectly.

Wavy Channels System and asymmetrical shape ensure perfect edge grip and great upwind performance, while the flat continuous rocker lets you reach the highest speeds on flat water. The low weight of the board lets you perform simple freestyle evolutions.

Size (cm): 160×46
Features:
• APS technology keeps the right torsion.

NHP SNOWKITE
Maximum performance in every condition

The NHP Snowkite is a board dedicated to be used in the snow with a kite. It’s not just a regular snowboard with a kiteboard brand logo. When designing this model, we used all our experience and passion to develop the best performing board on the market, whether for snow or ice. You’re looking at massive pop, a versatile flex pattern and a unique 20-meters progressive sidecut radius. This is the weapon of choice for all snowkiters. Our unique construction results in an insanely comfortable ride without being forced to upwind all the time, while the Nobile Snowkite provides extraordinary grip, both on toe and heel-side edge, allowing you to hold more speed, especially when going upwind. Our patented Snake Transition solution offers tons of control and response, even on icy and hardpack conditions, while still maintaining a fun flex. This board is also just as happy being used as a regular snowboard for those days when the wind isn’t playing ball.

Pads & Straps

CLICK&GO IFS GEN2
A perfect match

New IFS is the next step forward in Nobile. Built of the light EVA foam, they’re not only light and don’t absorb water, but they are also comfortable and user-friendly. Their major advantage is the comfort and the ability to adapt to any foot shape. An ergonomic shape has been re-designed – the pad surface is the reflection of the human foot and combined with a flexible plastic material it ensures even better foot grip during the ride, which gives you the solid control over the board. In addition, the platform at the toes improves control over the board and precision in transferring the body movement to the board. Newly 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 the comfort, while the wide Velcro-fastened buckle makes the whole fastening system solid and reliable. The strap itself is fastened inwards, which was proved by the ergonomics tests – it is also less prone to accidental catching in by the kite lines. The pad base, made of solid plastic, has 4 installation holes which allow riders to change the angle according to user preferences.

Advantages:
– Click&Go
– light construction
– ergonomic shape
– anti-skidding surface
– platform at the toe area
– possibility to adapt to any foot shape
– fast and solid Velcro-fastening
– 3 positions of straps attachment
– extra layer on straps presses the toes to pad
– 4-angle positions of board secure
– solid, modern materials (EVA, PA, eco-leather, neoprene)
