|Nobile T5 Koinibori Kite Specs|
Sizes: 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 14 m2
The progress continues - once again we redesigned and improved the T5. To have it done properly, we've teamed up with aerodynamic engineers (their everyday job is to design plane wings) and together we've remade the T5 kite. The main goal was to improved the kite performance, while simultaneously maintaining those T5 characteristics that you liked so much. The result is new, smoother profile of T5 KOINOBORI is even more aerodynamic then the previous version.
Weve taken whats the aerodynamics science has to offer and implemented it into this kite's construction. The result surpassed all our expectations so much, that we ended up upgrading it`s name. All aerodynamics-driven improvements start from the new profile. We've redesigned the leading edge area, included new, flattened Wing Tips, thinner bridles and steering lines. T5 - KOINOBORI is now much faster, and more stable at the same time, even in gusty wind conditions. Amazingly enough, the lift and hang time have also improved greatly. Incredible low-end wind performance also allows you to use kites smaller than usual, so now you have more versatile tool for your kiteboarding passion.
Additionally, side-strut kite valves have been moved to the outer sides of the struts, to gain the catch free location. Now its almost impossible for the bridles to catch the valve when launching the kite.
Already impressed? Breathe slowly, because thats still not the end ... T5-KOINOBORI also features an innovative, reinforced bridles attachment points. The kite is now equipped with double layer of Dacron where it's most exposed to risk of breaking the leading edge. Reinforced V-attach mounting system featured in the crucial point of bridles attach area makes the kite stronger. Good news for Kiteloop fans no more problems with this feature!
The T5-KOINOBORI features superior, direct-feeling control, improved predictability, and perfectly balanced bar pressure. The huge wind range, lift and hang time remain, but with a massive improvement to the low-end power and re-launch capabilities.
If you desire an easy re-launching kite with outstanding power range, smooth and precise handling, focused on freeride but also suitable for big air, waves and even unhooked freestyle, then the T5-KOINOBORI is a perfect choice.
