Nobile Kiteboarding have announced the new 555 and NHP kite ranges. The NHP 666 (Nobile High Performance) is a five-line performance kite enhanced with multiple leading edge attachments and Nobile's Natural Arc technology. The split lead line attachments allow the centre of effort of the kite to move forwards when depowering. However, with no pulleys and direct rear line attachments the bar pressure is light, incredibly responsive, and provides constant feedback. The NHP is primed for unhooked performance, new or old school freestyle and riders that still like the classic C shape feeling but want real levels of depower.
The goal with the 555 was to make a high depower, easy-to-use kite that that still had good performance, but did not feature any of the drawbacks of some of the bow kites on the market. This versatile four-line SLE is for free-riders looking to boost their confidence with maximum versatility, huge wind-range and direct bar sheeting. The 555 also features incredibly easy re-launch and hybrid simplicity to ensure peace of mind in all conditions. Massive wind range allows a two (or even one) kite quiver.
100% moulded innovations include the Fulcrum quick-release. Constant release pressure is placed on the quick release which aids a quick, safe exit, and the 100% moulded manufacture increases the life expectancy of the unit whilst negating the need for regular maintenance and cleaning. The Lock In Finger (LIF) has been designed with three operating positions, achieved by three clicks. Move the finger completely out of the way for regular unhooking while the solid moulded loop will never deform or twist.
