Technology

Nobile Skim Technical Features:

Nobile Human Concept KiteboardAPS Technology - Pre-stress:

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.

Complete Anti-Vibration Control:
It is a little known fact that proper flex control in a kiteboard is not solely determined by the deck's overall deflection in response to pressure.

Variable flex zones, flex response speeds and vibration control are all equally important factors.

Fast flex response speeds can raise the performance characteristics of a board that can cause rail "chatter" at speed, leading to a loss of rail grip and a general lack of comfort. Reducing this "chatter" or vibration through the use of advanced core materials and laminate provides exceptional rail grip in all conditions and increases rider comfort and control.

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:

Triple Fibre Power - This layout of fibres transfers power directly to the edges and creates perfect flex.

As a result the board features aggressive filling, quick response and harmonious flexibility.

Nobile Optional Fins KiteboardOptional Fins:
The Nobile Skimboard features optional fins. Traditional skimboard riders and those blessed with glassy flat water conditions will love the skatey feel of the board when finless.

However, if you ride in "real" world, imperfect conditions, the fins add immense amounts of grip through chop and makes landings easier.

Nobile Fin Skims KiteboardNobile Fin Shims:
No matter how carefully you ride, anyone can have an accidental contact with the beach or other solid objects. As well as ruining a good session, the resulting damage and / or fin loss can be frustrating. Nobile's new Fin Shims distribute the load placed on the heads of the screws, across the wider surface of the deck of the board, protecting your board from damage in all but the most extreme situations. Nobile have increased the length of the fin screws, ensuring deeper penetration into the fins, reducing the chance of fin loss, or damage even further.
