New snowkite boards

Postby Kiteminator » Sat Oct 21, 2006 10:27 pm

Has anyone been able to find more info on the web for either the Nobile snowkite board or the new Empire board from Cabrinha?

Yeah I know its not necessary, but the sidecut on my current snowboard is too much, every time I go upwind I end up making a huge circle. So long story short, I've been saving all summer and know I'm getting a board, just haven't found one to buy yet.

Anyone?

Hi, info on the Nobile Snowboard here:

http://www.nobileboardtour.com/

When mr.Shinn himself starts talking, click the nr 2.icon top right.. and he'll tell you about his snowboard.

The whole 2007 board range presentation is an inovating way of presenting stuff on the internet :D

Sweet info guys. Just love getting support like this in such a new sport.

Was able to get one shipped out from Powerline Sports. Smooth and easy, thanks!

Will post some info / a review once I've had it on the snow. Was thinking of hitting Skyline in a bit which would be a perfect opp to get the board wet.

Hey guys,

Less sidecuts matter more than you believe. I've been riding the Nobile board since last season and I've been pretty much addicted to have low sidecuts. Specially when you're riding fast upwind, you'll feel it more comfortable with this board.

Check out nobileboardtour.com !

Winter is about here in Norway and I can’t wait to get started :thumb:

I bet I could delaminate one of these Snow kiteboards just as fast as a regular snowboards. I wonder how their warranties are, I wonder if the shop would exchange boards more than once in a season :wink:

I don't think that the Nobile will fail faster than other boards. I think it will last longer do to the decreased side cut which puts more edge on the ice than a normal board. I don't know the details on the warranty but my guess it that its decent as long as your not kitelooping with the board.

I'm stoked to have a board that is extra wide and long. No more toe-ing out when carving hard this season. I have mine on order and I can't wait until it comes in.

I think the delam issue is an issue as we edge so hard compared to normal boarders. I don't think the flatter sr will change that.
So a really good edge construction will be the winner. I have seen every board here with big guys trashed after a few nasty icy days. In good snow then a plank works but on crusty broken glass conditions it is another story. I hope we dont have much of that this year!
The sidewall boards seem to do better but I think this is due poor cap bonding overlap. A cap board should do just as well, we will see;)
