Tested and approved by Mark Shinn the 2006 Nobile Pro 666 models are all about performance. Utilizing the most advanced construction available including wood, honeycomb, PVC foam, rubber, carbon and kevlar, the vibration in the board is reduced to an absolute minimum without compromising the flex characteristics. The 3D mould shaping in the tail of the board controls the tip flex allowing extreme deflection around the fin area. By maximizing the working angle of the fin it is possible to ride with smaller foils but with the same grip and upwind ability. Less fin equals less drag and less chance of tripping during high speed maneuvers. This is first board to feature our Adjustable Tip Rocker (ATP) performance profilers allowing riders to tune their board to their own riding style.
Riders looking to advance their skills to the next level will appreciate the improved planing ability, higher upwind pointing angles and faster riding characteristics of the 666 range. Whilst not a board for everyone, the performance oriented rider will instantly notice the benefits this range has to offer.
Performance Optimized Flex Pattern
The flex pattern of this board has been tuned to give the ultimate in performance. Early planning, extreme upwind pointing angles and higher board speed are all aimed for the more progressive and demanding rider. Whilst not having quite the same forgiving feeling as the Nobile 555 range the increased performance will reward the more demanding rider.
Elliptical Progressive Concave (EPC)
Our Elliptical Progressive Concave combines the added advantages of both the flat bottomed board and the concave shape. The tail area of the board is flat allowing increased flex for comfort and smooth turning whilst the centre section of the board has up to 5mm of concave providing earlier planning, extra rail grip and a smoother ride.
Complete Anti Vibration Construction (CAV)
Using a combination of wood, honeycomb, PVC foam, rubber, carbon and Kevlar the 666 range has the lowest vibration properties of any board currently in the market. Reducing vibration has a tried and tested effect on the ride characteristics of the board ensuring exceptional grip and ride quality through any and all water conditions.
Freeride or freestyle? You decide but now you donít have to change your board! Through extended testing we have developed unique rocker profilers that fit under the fin and change the tip rocker of the board radically changing itís riding characteristics. Want to ride hard and fast? Leave the profilers out for maximum grip and pop. Prefer to have a more all round board requiring less commitment and much smoother carving? Simply insert the profilers under the fins and you will be amazed at the difference in your ride.
ABS Shock resistant Sidewalls
The ABS shock resistant side walls are derived directly from snowboard construction. The reduced thickness sidewall provides the board with extreme flex capacity and a high strength to weight ratio as well as reducing unwanted water spray into the riders eyes.
Excelerated Windward Ability
The unique combination of outline, rocker line, Elliptical Progressive Concave and Nobile Complete Anti Vibration Technology in this range of boards work together to give you unsurpassed upwind ability. Whether underpowered or overpowered you will immediately notice the decrease in time needed to regain upwind ground after each trick.
Nobile Composite Core
This board has a core composition of Wood, Honeycomb, Carbon, Kevlar and Rubber. The placement of these materials and their differing properties create the anti vibration control and varying flex patterns in the board.
A complete foot bed solution for riders of all styles and all feet shapes and sizes. Designed for comfort and grip, the Nobile footpad supports your feet in all the right places thanks to it's 3-D contouring. Whether you are looking for soft landings from radical kite loops or easy entry and exit for board off's this pad is designed to keep your foot safe, secure and in the right place! Built on an ABS plate for easy adjustment and "no glue" fixing, the triple density foam provides just the right balance cushion whilst maintaining a sure grip. The thin anti slip rubber placed around the strap screw holes ensures the foot strap cannot twist and stays exactly where you want it.
Not just another generic foot strap with company logo sewn on, this strap has been developed, by us, from scratch. Nobile is the only company to produce our patented easy montage foot strap. By designing into the strap two completely separate, interlocking pieces we have created a system that enables you to lay the pieces flat to the board without unscrewing them! This makes the strap incredibly easy to mount on the board and removes the need of unscrewing them when traveling. A simple feature that the traveling Kite boarder will wonder how they ever managed to do without! Triple screw holes on each end of the strap allow it to be fine tuned for riders of all foot sizes.
Built in high quality G-10 material and shaped by CNC milling machines. The computer controlled manufacture ensures that every fin is an exact match to the original design specifications. The "flat top" design produces unparalleled levels of grip for it's size and is combined with a narrow profile for reduced drag and improved upwind ability. The fins are finished in high visibility orange to attract your sight when searching for the board in the water and minimize the chance of board loss. Available in sizes 45mm and 55mm (1.8 inch and 2.2 inch).
A high level of rigidity and textured grip covering provide the easiest to use grab handle available.
Lightweight board covers designed to protect your ride whilst not in action. Tough enough to prevent all the dings and scratches your board has to endure during transportation. Featuring double strength carry handles, heat reflecting foil covering and internal protection of your board from the zipper. (Board cover comes as standard with all Nobile Pro boards).
