The XTR packs the latest technology in kiteboard design to ensure a spectacular light wind performance in those less than perfect days when you want to enjoy a cool kiteboarding session. It is the perfect board for any rider that prefers to drive a twin tip rather than a directional in marginal wind conditions. And it is much more than a simple lightwind board. It packs power and pop and it is very dynamic, perfect for a nice freestyle action.

Excellent early planing, outstanding upwind performance and a smooth and fast glide are just a few of the characteristics that make the Nobile XTR a reliable and versatile lightwind machine. The XTR is also forgiving, so it can accommodate less experienced riders with ease. It is also a perfect board for heavier riders.

The board is built using a Paulownia wood core wrapped in triaxial fiberglass and honey comb layers plus carbon and Kevlar stringers and ABS sidewalls. This structure creates an X-reactive flex system, which assures optimal grip and pop plus a complete vibration reduction. The XTR uses a dynamic asymmetrical shape, designed to work in conjunction with the rider’s body. The heelside rail line is tailored to provide more grip, better upwind performance and maximum pop plus superb edging control.

The hydrodynamic rocker line places the board optimally on the water flow to reduce drag an improve speed and acceleration. The Elliptical Progressive Concave bottom design, based on a flat tail area and a concave center section, improves early planning and stability and provides a smoother ride in chop. Overall, the Nobile XTR offers a smooth and easy ride even when the wind barely blows.

Yep, you get lots of flex and good pop. I must add that it rockets upwind too and has a nice edge control and a blasting low end. If you add the forgiving and smooth glide, you get a fantastic board for marginal wind ride....more
