Nobile NHP 2010

Nobile already has a reputation for innovative technology, performance and quality and the new Nobile NHP 2010 Kite is no exception. With 2 years in development -the criteria for performance was clear! Fast and direct feeling, axial turning, low bar pressure when unhooked and instant response to rider input with an increased priority on its depower range and super easy re-launch.

Using a short and simple bridle - the NHP was allowed a smaller leading edge 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 NHP 4-line format has also allowed Nobile to increase light wind performance with no effect on the upper range handling and usability. For most riders, this increased wind range will ensure no more than 2 kites are necessary for 90% of riding conditions.

The kites of choice for KPWT winner Mike Blomvall!
All Nobile 2010 models are 100% unique, dedicated Nobile designs. Every single kite has been designed built and tested exhaustively to produce a model that is perfectly suited to the target rider/riding style. There is now scaling up or down of one test winning size - each kite has been specially developed for the conditions it will be ridden in, meaning the wind ranges overlap and the handling qualities are consistent from size to size.

Industry leading CAD/CAM software ensures that the approved prototypes are converted into production models with 100% accuracy.

Who is the Nobile NHP 2010 Kite designed for?
Unhooked riding, new or old school freestyle and riders that still like the classic C-shape feeling but want real levels of de-power.

If you still yearn for the feeling of a classic C, but value the benefits the flatter kites have to offer, you will feel instantly at home on the NHP kite.

Why did Nobile make the Nobile NHP 2010 Kite?
Nobile started with a concept, why can’t we have a kite that features all the good parts of a C-shape; fast, direct and axial turning with positive, but not hard bar pressure, great unhooked performance and fantastic lift, yet still exhibiting the benefits of a flatter kite with massive de-power, great ease of use and gust proof power delivery!

With this goal in mind the NHP (Nobile High Performance) 2010 was born.

How did Nobile do it?
Even from a distance you can see this kite is different, performance is 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 de-powering offering near bow levels of de-power.

However, by keeping the no pulley, direct rear line attachments the bar pressure is not only light, but incredibly responsive with constant feedback. If you still yearn for the feeling of a classic C, but value the benefits the flatter kites have to offer, you will feel instantly at home on the NHP.

By designing every size individually, adjusting the attachment points and arc geometry for each size we created a constant feel across the range not often found in other brand ranges.

Natural ARC Shaping:

The NHP features Natural Arc shaping, the most aerodynamically efficient shape for a Leading Edge Inflatable (LEI) kite. The fluid form has several key benefits in performance and has been developed through extensive R & D and not marketing influence.

As there are no corners or radical changes of angle in the
leadng edge - the form is the same as the trailing edge of the kite ensuring that the designed profile is maintained across the entire canopy.

Another gain is that even tension is applied across the canopy eliminating all fluttering and flapping and greatly enhancing the kite’s stability.

Structurally the lack of pressure points in the leading edge also greatly decreases the load on the bladder and seams thus reducing the chance of material failure.

Smart 2-Pump Inflation System:
The SMART (Single-point, Multiple-valve, Air-distribution with Removable Tubes) pump ination system has been extensively modified for the new series. The uniquely designed valves and removable tubes, connecting the kite’s individual bladders, are now even more user-friendly for inflation and deflation and for removability in the event of bladder punctures or kite damage that needs repair.

Responsive, Direct Handling:
The already instant and positive feel of the Nobile NHP has improved with the separation of the front and back bridle. Bar pressure has been lightened, but without loss of predictability in power control and turning.

Quick and Intuitive Re-launch:
Re-launching the Nobile NHP has never been easier. Minimal rider bar input sees the kite roll over and take off in any wind strength and from which ever position it is lying in.

Short De-power Throw:
The Nobile control bar and NHP work together to ensure power control is progressive and predictable within a short de-power throw. Moving from maximum power to full de-power is achieved with a range of movement that is within easy, comfortable reach of the average rider.

4-line Simplicity:
Separating the front and back bridle and the removal of the pulley has made the light, direct feeling associated with the NHP even greater for the new Nobile NHP. The single knot for the front line attachment eliminates fuss, whilst the two knots on the rear attachments offer riders a choice in positioning the bar close to the Fulcrum or further up the de-power line when riding comfortably.

Nobile NHP 4-Line Control Bar:
Nobile’s 4 line control bar is one of the safest, most technologically advanced bars on the market. Nobile's new stainless steel (INOX) centre hole reduces wear on the de-power line, decreases bar pressure when turning the kite and provides uni-directional seating for the FULCRUM Quick Release, ensuring it’s always facing forwards when riding unhooked.
For 2010 Nobile have applied a new colour coded EVA texture to the upper side of the bar to increase grip and rider comfort. The highest of safety and ease of use come together as standard in the revolutionary Fulcrum Quick Release and the through bar leash attachment line means true re-ride performance whilst still allowing the kite to “flag” and de-power completely when released in case of emergency. All bars come with their own bag to help keep them clean and the lines tangle free, while the safety (HP) leash features a new clip complete with manual block to prevent accidental detachment.

Fully featured Kite Bag
The new Nobile kite bag is designed to keep your kite in perfect condition when not in use as well as provide a functional pack for each session. Dedicated external attachment points hold the bar and pump securely whilst in transit and both internal and external pockets provide plenty of extra storage space. A ¾ circumference zippered opening allows for quick and easy entry to the bag and base venting allows any water to drain out and air to circulate whilst your kite is in storage.

Nobile Fulcrum Quick Release:

Nobile’s all new Fulcrum De-power loop is the industries first 100% molded Quick Release (QR). By analyzing ALL the requirements and applying a little “outside the box” thinking we created a completely integrated system that moves away from the much used cantilever principle, under which the pressure needed to open the QR increases as the load on the system rises, instead the Fulcrum has a constant release pressure no matter the forces placed upon it.

The molded construction helps to vastly increase the life expectancy of the unit whilst negating the need for regular maintenance and cleaning. Whilst safety was of the utmost importance in the design of the Fulcrum, it’s functionality had to be superior too.

The Lock In Finger (LIF) has been designed with three operating positions with the finger in a vertical position you can insert it through the end of the spreader bar and prevent inadvertent unhooking. By turning the LIF through one click it is held to one side out of the way (ideal for making unhooked tricks) but is still available should you wish to engage it again during your session. Push the LIF from behind to remove it completely from the Fulcrum and hook in and out with complete ease.

The top of the mold has been designed to fit snuggly into the INOX centre hole in the bar thus ensuring the loop is always facing you during freestyle moves for fast hooking in again. Ease of use has been further enhanced through the use of a solid molded loop that can neither deform nor twist.

The Handle pass leash attachment point (*) allows experienced freestyle riders to attach their leash to the Fulcrum in a position that does not impede riding and eliminates the possibility of the end of the leash catching on your spreader bar hook. Finally the whole unit has been designed to allow a quick and easy change of worn out de-power lines without the need to replace the whole QR.

* The handle pass leash attachment point should only ever be utilized by expert riders once in open water and after careful consideration of the risks involved which result from dropping the bar and the possible dragging that can result. Riders should NEVER fix their leash on to this attachment point when launching the kite or near to land.

Replaceable Depower Line

The Nobile FULCRUM has been designed so that replacement of a worn de-power line can be done quickly and easily without replacing the unit itself. Unscrew and remove the Leashline/5th line attachment ring and then remove the quick release handle. The new line can be fed through the retaining piece and then the unit re-assembled.

Constant Pressure Quick Release
Due to the unique design of the FULCRUM the pressure needed to open the quick release remains constant irrespective of the loads placed upon it (unlike cantilever based systems where the pressure needed to open the release increases as the load on the unit increases). Uniquely, the system can be re-set quickly and easily after use even with only one hand - simply push the loop piece back onto the retainer and slide the release handle back down.

Handle Pass Leash Attachment
The FULCRUM features a dedicated Handle Pass Leash attachment point for maximum convenience during advanced freestyle riding.

* The handle pass leash attachment point should only ever be utilized by expert riders once in open water and after careful consideration of the risks involved which result from dropping the bar and the possible dragging that can result. Riders should NEVER fix their leash on to this attachment point when launching the kite or near to land.

Auto Locating Insert
The top of the FULCRUM has been designed to fit into the INOX bar centre piece. This ensures that the loop is always facing you during un-hooked manoeuvres allowing for fast and problem free re-hooking.

High Visibilty, Floating Loop
In the event that you become detached from the loop when the quick release is activated the FULCRUM has been built in a high visibilty red colour and designed to float making it easier to spot in the water.

3 Position Lock IN Finger (LIF)
The FULCRUM has a 3-position LIF for all riding styles. In the normal position it can be inserted into the harness hook to ensure you do not come un-hooked accidentally. In the open position the rider can perform un-hooked tricks easily however can re-engage the finger should they wish to mid session. Removing the LIF completely allows for maximum convenience when riding unhooked.
