Nobile Zen Freeride Foil
PROBABLY THE MOST ADVANCED AND TESTED ALUMINIUM-CARBO COMPOSITE HYDROFOIL EVER MADE!
Almost 15-month research on Hydrofoil was conducted by the most experienced team of Nobile engineers under the Care and management of Grzegorz Staszczuk, R&D Engineer and Dariusz Rosiak – the Nobile’s founder. Tomek Janiak – Nobile Rider and one of the world’s top Kite Formula competitors – was the project’s advisor and the main tester. The result is the product of the highest quality, based on the Human Concept philosophy. It’s probably the best aluminum hydrofoil on the market. We also wanted it to be user-friendly, safe and full disassembly, so you can pack it into a compact-sized luggage. We recommend our custom-made “check in bag” which meets the criteria of airlines in terms of the maximum size of registered baggage. We have called our hydrofoil Zen, because when you ride on it, your mind becomes free and your thinking clear as the water surrounding you.
– easy to ride and manoeuvrable
– properties typical for carbon products
– high safety level
– solid and stiff construction
– steering precision
– fully anti-corrosion seal makes the construction immune to unfavourable conditions, such as salt water.
FUSELAGE - ALUMINUM
Length (cm): 64
The Fuselage is made of aluminum used in aviation industry. Milled and turned in lab conditions on CNC machines. Carefully selected cross sections and well-designed slots securing wings and mast minimize resistance, while increasing durability and rigidity of connection with other components. The keel is anodized in order to protect it against the salt water.
The aluminium mast is extruded from the material used in the aviation industry. It is extremely light and stiff to the maximum. Thanks to the non-drag profile, it has very low resistance in the water.
It’s a pivotal point of the whole construction, connecting the hydrofoil with the board. Made of high-quality aluminum used in aviation industry to make it super-stable and maximally durable. Redesigned shape makes it lighter. Added slots for mounting instead of holes create possibility to set position in order to achieve perfect balance on the board. It makes also possibility to attach hydrofoil to boards with holes system 160x90 and 165x90.
Freeride: surface – 700 cm2 | span – 56 cm | aspect ratio: – 4,5.
Wings are built of ultra-durable and stiff G10 composite milled with the use of super-precise CNC machines and polished to minimize the water resistance. The back flap is universal for both wings.
Extremely stabile and easy to control. It gains lift quickly which makes it useful also for the beginners. Optimized for medium and high speed.
New shape of freeride wing guarantees fitted surface parameters and used profiles provide a freedom of moves in wide spectrum of weather conditions.
Thanks to the big extension the resistance is reduced to the absolute minimum. Optimized for maximum speed.
The 40 mm Nobile fin is made of G10 material and serves as an extra stabilizer. You can use other sizes of Nobile G10 fins as well.
