Snowkite: RC2000 overview by Christian Labbe
Is this the world’s best race snowkite board? It is winner of the ISPO 2014 Award.
It is the ultimate racing machine designed and developed solely to conquer this unique discipline. Tested in the wildest areas of Utah (USA), Siberia (Russia) and Norway. Designed for riders who are not afraid of speed and have the desire to win every race. Patented APS technology provides extraordinary grip, both on the toe and heel-side edge, even on icy and hard-pack conditions, and allows you to hold more speed, especially when going upwind. If you want to race at the highest level, then this board will deliver.

Christian Labbe (CAN), Nobile Pro Team: The RC2000 is a real weapon for snowkite races. The large width allows me to reduce binding drag when edging in snow, while the short nose is cutting the snow instead of pushing it. The large side cut and the stiffness provide stability at high speed and incredible upwind capacity. All of those benefits in a lightweight board allowed me to kick ass during Red Bull Ragnarok (6th) in Norway and during the Quebec Snowkite Race Series (1st)!
