Nobile Says:

Anybody who tries traveling with a splitboard will be instantly converted. The removal of any hassle during long kitesurfing journeys as well as the other advantages in everyday use are guaranteed to instantly convert you. However, the most important thing is what this board does on the water. After assembling, it’s a full on NHP but with a slightly enhanced flex. Key features include a high rocker that guarantees comfort on chop and exceptional board agility while double concave enables hard edging and keeps you on track. Top-quality glass fibers pressed in APS technology combined with the wooden core guarantee incredible pop and fantastic endurance.

The 2016 Nobile NHP Splitboard features a flat bottom with center dual concave at the tips. Although the mid second is fairly stiff where the board splits in half, the overall flex pattern works surprising well. The flat rocker helps this board fly upwind and the flex in the tips makes this board feel lively and cuts through the chop. Testers noted how much fun toeside carving was on the NHP Split due to its asymmetrical tips and extra rounded toeside rail. The NHP Splitboard sports firm deckpads with tons of grippy texture and testers mentioned how comfortable, soft and easy to adjust its straps were. Allowing for ample adjustability, the Nobile NHP Splitboard has two stance width options and three duck options and packs into a small backpack to make traveling a breeze and help keep you under the baggage fee radar.
