NHP Split 2018

Postby kiter4fun123 » Fri Jan 26, 2018 10:00 pm

Hi,

Anybody knows the exact weight of this board? (134x41)
Compared to the flysurfer Split2 (134x41), heavier lighter same?

(Or is it the same board, read somewhere that flysurfer oems nobile boards?)

I'm looking for a fast split board with low rocker boosting big jumps ;)

I have both flysplits and 2017 NHP carbon split and the flysplit M is lighter and has less rocker. They are not the same board.

Indeed that is what NBL wants you to believe, Flysurfer R&D brought the technique and experience to NBL, which not much later also started to produce split-kiteboards...

The FlySplit2 has a tiny bit more rocker and flex then the Radical5 from Flysurfer, it is still a low-rocker board with great speed and control.
The outline of the 134cm FlySplit board is symmetrical making it very playful, the rocker is less then on the Nobile NHP.

I did a review a couple months ago that compared the NHP with the Flysplit after a 8000 mile roadtrip. Here's the link.

hi,
Thanks for the input and Impressive kite-travelling!
(Finally ordered the flysplit2. I like the lower rocker and also the fact that the weight is < 3kg for the 134 board.
Btw I couldn't find the weight for the nbl split boards not even for the carbon split -
might be a good idea to display it on the webshop site?)

Hi. After testing the Flysplit, do you recommend it over the Nobile? What's the total weight with pads/straps and fins? Also, where's the best place to buy it?

Nobile was making split boards for flysurfer hence I would buy whichever is cheapest. I have NHP split 2018 board is fantastic and very light weight. Carbon version is apparently stiffer hence I’m happy with regular one.
I have also their check in luggage specially for kite gear and soon will be testing on abroad holidays.
