Nobile 2HD    Test Team Favourite
STYLE:  Freeride-Freestyle Twin
SIZE:    134 x 42 cm
FINS:     5.5 cm fins

The 2HD stands for DoubleHydroDynamic and this board combines the speed and comfort of the freeride shape with the explosive pop of Nobile pure freestyle model. The Double stands for the fact that there are two different bottom profiles, with a flatter rocker through the middle and deeper on the outside. Nobile boards are packed with technology and innovative ideas. The 2HD is sure to be the workhorse of the Nobile lineup as it offers advanced riders, smooth and reactive freestyle pop and a stiff but comfortable flex pattern. This board was top contender for the all-around category for its smooth ride, good upwind grip and easy release. This board is also fast and powerful with flat rocker. With a more moderate inside stance there is no worry of burying the nose and the dynamic flex really shines when ripping into high-speed carves. The 2HD will be an ideal option for advanced freeriders or aggressive freestyle crew that wants top level performance in any condition.

Footbed and Strap System
The newly designed IFS Pro is a comfortable strap and bed system that’s easy to get into and also provides great hold and grip, and transfers weight input with good reactivity. Unlike some footbeds there is consistent and comfortable pressure across the whole foot bottom. The Velco toe straps are reliable and easily adjustable and the system is a cinch to install. Top marks for using reliable and simple system that feels good on the feet.
