The Nobile Flying Carpet 2018 is a light
wind machine! The synergy of advanced technology and excellent
shape gives the rider unmatched upwind performance and previously
unattainable light wind fun with unexpected freeride possibilities.
We all know the wind conditions when a bigger
board is, quite simply, a better board. The Flying Carpet
was designed not to miss those days when everyone else is
on the beach waiting for the wind. It is a supreme light wind
creation and is lively and responsive, and truly surprises
with the kind of performance and comfort you would not expect
from a board of its size.
This board will be appreciated by anyone who
rides on lakes or low-wind spots and is ideal for your first
tacks / going upwind. It will prove itself in all situations
where the bigger riding surface is needed (so it is also a
great board for bigger riders).
The Nobile Flying Carpet also uses
Nobile Pre-Stress technology. During the production process,
Nobile "freeze and store" the energy in the
board construction. This energy is then for your disposal
when you need it.
It benefits with more pop, fast reaction, better grip,
manoeuvrabiliy and anything you want to use it for. This
allows Nobile to make the Flying Carpet lighter than
Versatility has been enhanced by utilizing
Nobile's new Dynamic Asymmetrical Outline. Focusing mainly
on the toe-side edge, means that the test winning rail grip,
early planing and upwind ability of the Nobile Flying Carpet
range still remains.
The new mould allows Nobile to add more flex
into the fin areas of the board without effecting the central
nose and tail sections that are responsible for the higher
performance characteristics. Nobile have also added a high
gloss UV stable top foil to the board to ensure it's good
looks last forever.
The Nobile Flying Carpet is also a great board
for first time riders and kite schools making your learning
easier, faster and more comfortable.
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.
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!
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.
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.
A conventional rocker with it's flatter centre section and
increasing radius towards the tail causes the water to accelerate
along its length as the distance it has to travel increases.
This acceleration causes drag on the board. Nobile's hydrodynamic
rocker contains most of it's radius in the centre of the board.
The straight action enables the water to maintain it's direction
of travel all the way along the bottom of the board making
the drag from the water to be reduced to a minimum as it travels
the shortest distance possible. For 2018, Nobile have increased
the lift in the tips of the Hydrodynamic Rocker Line. This
subtle change increases versatility (particularly when switching
from heel-side to toe-side) and dramatically reduces unwanted
spray whilst maintaining all other benefits the Nobile Flying
Carpet has become famous for.
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.
