The Nobile T5 2013 is designed to rise your
riding to the next level in the easiest way available, a perfect
freeride combination from the beginner to advanced rider.
The T5 is the multiuniversal machine that makes your progress
faster and more effective.
This model is the board of choice for everybody
looking to advance their skills in all disciplines. The T5
board guarantees fast progress, tons of joy and satisfaction.
The T5 2013 is a perfect bridge between Nobile's top of the
line and entry level models.
Thanks to early planing and great upwind performance,
the T5 will let you focus on riding and progress rather than
trying to stay upwind. Massive POP, combined with ultimate
comfort, stability and grip makes the T5 a versatile tool
that you will enjoy for many seasons.
The all new 2012 T5 comes as a result of careful
analysis of what’s necessary to help you progress. Nobile
totally redesigned the T5’s construction to develop
a board tailored to your needs.
For 2013 - the world's best selling kiteboard
has moved to a 100% Wood Core offering unsurpassed levels
of comfort and anti-vibration control without any compromise
to rider feeling.
The development of the new 2013 100% Wood Core has allowed
Nobile to improve the legendary comfort factor without losing
the board's lively performance, and once perfected, the addition
of Nobile's new Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline to the exisiting
Elliptical Progressive Concave and Anti-Vibrational Technology
has increased the versatility further.
Nobile's unique Pre-Stress technology not
only massively improves the board POP, but also increases
the stability and edge grip. Soft flex pattern provides the
ultimate comfort of landings while deeper rocker line completely
eliminates the water spray. It doesn’t matter if you
ride flat or choppy water, the new T5 is the best tool for
the job, a class of it’s own among the wide selection
of boards available nowadays.
After 8 years of continuous research and development,
Nobile took a step back and re-evaluated the goals for Nobile's
T5 (555) board range. The Nobile T5 range has become synonymous
with control, ease of use and comfort and performance. No
other board has achieved such consistently high praise from
test teams the world over.
Light wind planing, control at speed and phenomenal
upwind ability are trademarks of the Nobile T5 2012 range.
It's ability to perform in all conditions inspiring confidence
to all levels of rider are what sets it apart from the rest.
The wider sizes of the Nobile T5 have been tuned to work in
lighter winds and for heavier riders whilst the womens addition
(apart from featuring a unique colour scheme) has a flex pattern
suited to lighter riders and narrower stance options.
The Nobile T5 2013 is designed to obtain performance and above
all comfort. Recognizing the fact that not every rider has
either the level or the desire to be a pro this range is all
about fun in the water and going home with a smile. It's no
use having the highest performance board on the beach if you
dont have the skills to handle it.
For many riders an easy to ride board will allow them to perform
better than a high performance model simply through extra
control and confidence that they experience.
Human Concept - Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline:
You can’t escape the fact that kite-boarding stances
are not symmetrical; can you ride the same on your toe side
and heel side edges? If not, then you
have to ask yourself why your board has the same outline and
fin position on the heel side and toe side edges.
Nobile’s Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline is designed around
their Human Concept, performance that is destined to enhance
and work in harmony with your natural physiology, not fight
Nobile have tailored the outline on your stronger heel side
rail to have more grip, better upwind performance and maximum
POP. On the weaker toe side, Nobile have increased the curve
radius and bought the fins closer to your feet improving the
carving potential and comfort factor of the board when riding
switch whilst at the same time radically decreasing the foot
pressure needed to hold your edge.
3D Top Mould:
By fine tuning the mould for different sizes - Nobile have
managed to both simplify the range with less sizes but still
provide a model for riders of all weights and ability levels.
The idea of pre-stress was already know by architects in ancient
Rome and was used during the construction of the Colosseum.
Pre-stressing means the intentional creation of permanent
stresses in structure for the purpose of improving its performance
under various service conditions.
Nobile Pre-Stress allows Nobile to load the
board with energy already during the production process. Storing
the energy in the board mean's it's more reactive, responsive
and livelier. It also allows Nobile to build a thinner but
more durable board!
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 planing,
extra rail grip and a smoother ride.
It is a little known fact that proper flex control in a kiteboard
is not solely determined by the deck's overall deflection
in response to pressure. Variable flex zones, flex response
speeds and vibration control are all equally important factors.
Fast flex response speeds can raise the performance characteristics
of a board that can cause rail "chatter" at speed,
leading to a loss of rail grip and a general lack of comfort.
Reducing this "chatter" or vibration through the
use of advanced core materials and laminate provides exceptional
rail grip in all conditions and increases rider comfort and
Having the best performing board on the market won't prevent
disappointment if the colours start to fade after 6 months
use. Nobile's UV resistant foils ensure your board will look
as good in six month's as the day it came out of the wrapper.
No matter how carefully you ride, anyone can have an accidental
contact with the beach or other solid objects. As well as
ruining a good session, the resulting damage and / or fin
loss can be frustrating. Nobile's new Fin Shims distribute
the load placed on the heads of the screws, across the wider
surface of the deck of the board, protecting your board from
damage in all but the most extreme situations. For 2013, Nobile
have increased the length of the fin screws, ensuring deeper
penetration into the G-10fins, reducing the chance of fin
loss, or damage even further.
Footbed Pro System:
The Nobile IFS Pro foot bed is the world’s
first triple-density, moulded pad. With each layer becoming
progressively harder, the shock absorbing qualities of the
pad “ramp up” through it’s depth, preventing
any possibility of your foot hitting the board, whilst still
delivering a firm surface that gives a direct feeling of the
board when riding.
Nobile G-10 Fins:
Nobile fins are 55mm and molded in high visibility
orange to help in finding the board after wipeouts.
Nobile T5 (Nobile
555) 2013 Features:
- 100% Wood Core Technology and a new 3D
Deck Mould allowing for better flex control.
- Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline increases
versatility and comfort.
- Wider stance options for more stable riding
- Fin Shims for stronger fin / board connection.
- Large fins to keep an edge in stronger

Perfect Allrounder! Darren Keane
I have been through the entire worldwide web looking for a
bad review but the Nobile 555 has consistently outranked every
other board I have been looking at. Now I have one - I understand
- its not just hype - these boards really are that good!
If you are just starting out - you are a seasoned rider or
you are just enjoying the fun that kiteboarding brings, this
is an excellent board.
The Nobile 555 has everything going for it!
Nice graphics, excellent footstraps, nice sharp rail and forgiving
feel if you are still getting used to the waves.
It rides upwind well, carves into the turns
without skipping out and absorbs the jumps I am now doing
which seem really high!
Overall whatever level you are at - if you
can only afford one board for all conditions - then the Nobile
555 is going to give you the most fun and performance!
Best board I've been on! Lewis Johnson
Only been kiting for a few months now, for me, after trying
around 10 different boards, I chose this one. I took it out
to Portugal, both low and high wind performance was great,
the antivibration feature was great as the water was quite
choppy and as a "newbie" it definitely helped me
kite for longer as I wasnt as tired. Oh and also it looks
amazing. Everyone said they had heard about this board and
everyone wanted to have a go. Everyone agreed, fantastic board
so glad I chose it and would highly recommend it to both beginners
and the more experienced.
