NOBILE ZEN HYDROFOIL 2017 ALLROUND
PROBABLY THE MOST ADVANCED AND TESTED ALUMINIUM-CARBO COMPOSITE HYDROFOIL EVER MADE!
– 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
WHY SKIM FOIL:
We achieved lower weight and better stiffness, which significantly improves wave riding quality. The board has a very thin core which lets you put your feet very close to the water or hydrofoil and, as a result, facilitates steering and board feeling. The deck is covered with EVA foam, ensuring comfort of keeping the right position. Channels running along the board considerably improve the board stability during wave riding. We have also used the CAP construction which has a box-type structure, where the edge of a wooden wedge is fully secured with a laminate. The board is lighter, stiffer and much more resistant to breakage.
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 aluminumcarbon hydrofoil on the market. We also wanted it to be user-friendly, safe and full disassembly, so you can pack it into a compactsized 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.
Length (cm): 64
The Fuselage is made of Aluminum-Carbon 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.
Length (cm): 60 | 86 | 90
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 to make it super-stable and maximally durable.
All-round: surface – 815 cm2 | span – 55 cm | extension – 3,7.
Freeride: surface 835cm2 | span – 59,5cm | extension: – 4,2.
Race: surface – 528 cm2 | span – 60cm | extension – 6,8.
Wings are built of ultra-durable and stiff G10 composite milled with the use of super-precise CNC machines (www.nlbkompozyty.com) 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.
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.
