Description
Beautifully crafted twin-tip , the LT boards prove very simply that great design works , these boards leave there owners wishing for lightwinds so they can have fun on these addictive kiteboards.
The LT twintips are very custom and take 6 days to build and pass through 3 separate vacuum bag processes. Firstly you the client go through the fun ordering process choosing all the various options. All the LT models can have custom graphics top and bottom, as well as the custom size to fit your ride style, custom flex pattern to fit your weight, custom reinforcement to fit your weight and custom footstrap positions.
The LT boards have been tested at a constant 7 to 8 knots to get going , at around 10 knots you can start doing lightwind tricks and jumps. The board speed is very high, with good kite control the speed can easily be 2 times the wind speed.
The Super Leggera test boards came in at 1,6 kilos for the chassis only in the 142 size, this kind of weight helps enormously in lightwind performance and of course gives the board such a playful character.
Construction
High modulus Carbon fiber
The LT Super Leggera uses Nomad's CCS construction amazingly strong and lightweight with the fastest flex response in kitesurfing. Super smooth in chop, where you look the board will follow, a highly precise and efficient ride. As with all Nomad twin-tips the super smooth ride is down to the large flex which is being skillfully controlled by the Carbon-fiber positioning and the fast Carbon re-flex. The Carbon fiber is continually holding the board in the designed shape. The Carbon fiber is a 3 directional setup used specifically in Formula One and sports car chassis-tub layup's. 12k uni-direction carbon tape is used to control torsional flex along the drive edges.
The LT Super Leggera is built as a custom board allowing the owner - rider to set the exact size to his or her specifics. The flex system is built to the riders weight, a heavier rider will require a stiffer board and logically a light weight rider a more flexible board. Footstrap positions are customized with careful recommendations from Nomad and graphics are completely open to customization.
The LT Super Leggera is finished with a gloss finish on the topside and a matt-satin finish on the underside, clients can of course also choose individual finishes.
Carbon fiber is strong, to assist the carbon fiber we use a Dyneema fiber to further guarantee the strength and give the rider 100% confidence in these mega lightweight kiteboards. Dyneema absorbs the impacts and distributes them across the entire lamination making the whole lamination work and not point loading the carbon fiber.

Reviews
Rider : Richard D. (Holland)
I came from a 160 production twintip to the Nomad LT CCS 150, amazingly the Nomad starts much earlier than the 160 production.
The Nomad has fantastic finish and quality, more something to do with Formula 1 cars than kitesurfing, highly recommended.
Rider : John H. (UK)
Beautifully finished carbon fiber top and bottom deck, great communication with Nomad. Fast delivery.
Very comfortable and fun board to use , strangly look forward to lightwind days. Easy 5 stars.
Rider : Andy H. (USA)
An amazing kiteboard and easily fits into the bracket of Super Kiteboard.
Expensive to buy but well worth it, dealing with Nomad is like buying a Porsche 911. Every detail is perfect.
Custom
The LT Super Leggera is built as a custom board allowing the owner - rider to set the exact size to his or her specifics. Nomad Lightwind boards can be ordered in a slightly smaller size compared with Production lightwind twintips. As with any twintip the width is calculated from the riders weight, a 120 kilo rider should be in the 44 to 45cm width and a 50 kilo rider in the 39cm width area. The flex system is built to the riders weight, a heavier rider will require a stiffer board and logically a light weight rider a more flexible board to achieve the same comfort level. Footstrap positions are customized with careful recommendations from Nomad and graphics are completely open to customization.
The LT Super Leggera is finished with a matt-satin finish on the top and underside, optional extra gloss topside.
Send Nomad an email for more info, we very much enjoy talking to riders about possible custom builds, the quick contact form is located at the bottom of the page.

Why the Nomad Lightwind ?
Shaper's opinion
Lightwind kitesurfing is a part of kiteboarding often misjudged, the material on the market is slow and not the most exciting experience, the boards are heavy and need big fat kites to move them, Nomad has a board that changes all that !!!
spacer
It doesn't have to be fat and slow, innovation and tackling the problem with good design and not following the rest of the pack leads to creativity and a kiteboard which is fast and fun to use. The faster the board the smaller the kite you need to run it. In developing this board we needed simple concepts of board design, flat rockerlines that don't generate resistance, eliminate all drag and use a moderate flex system for comfort.
spacer
Using our well tested, famous carbon building techniques we created a 1,6 kilo chassis that has the fastest acceleration and holds the fastest top speed of any lightwind twintip in its class. The boards secret is speed, the high acceleration leads quickly to speed which in turn gives you high upwind, every kitesurfer knows a slow board is never going up wind. With speed comes all the other advantages, jumping, manouvability, gybing, carving quickly and getting up and down the beach with ease.
spacer
The Lightwind 3k and its more lighter weight brother the Lightwind-pro 3k have both been tested here in Germany by the local rag "kitelife". Both boards are best in test, not an easy task for a small company like Nomad against the big marketing giants like North and Carved, but lets face it in every sport its the small specialist companies that are innovating at the very top of a sport.
spacer
The Lightwind 3k
The 3k carbon is 3000 elements per strand , super strong with great flex charactisterics used on the top and bottom laminates, extra carbon is used under the pads to strengthen for landings. Both the Lightwind 3k and Lightwind-Pro 3k use the same shape and rocker system, each board also has the same flex dynamics but with the Lightwind-pro reacting quicker giving more efficiency. Concave is 10mm and uses the tunnel concave system from the centre to the tips of the board delivering maximum lift to get going and stay going.
spacer
The Lightwind-Pro 3k
The Lightwind Pro 3k is lighter in weight but the same strength as the Lightwind 3K. Extra carbon is used under the drive rail to deliver more pop and the board is hand laced with carbon 50mm bands to control torsional flex. The torsion x-system can be seen laid on the top of the 3k carbon. A specially developed lightweight core is used to further decrease the boards final weight.The Lightwind-Pro 3k uses the same shape and rocker system as the Lightwind 3k, each model also has the same flex dynamics but with the Lightwind-pro reacting quicker giving more efficiency. Concave is 10mm and uses the tunnel concave system from the centre to the tips of the board delivering maximum lift to get going and stay going.

Favourite setup
We love using the 142 with a 13m C-kite, this setup is possible in a constant 7 knot wind. A better upwind setup is the 144 with a 13m flat-kite like a Switchblade, the flat-kite flies further into the wind than a C-kite but will turn slower. The C-kite with a 142 is great for jumps and messing around and of course the C-kite has full power in the turns alowing the rider to be more aggressive with the whole setup. The 144 or 146 with a flat-kite is more easy going and great for cruising. You can also try fitting 10m line extensions which will give you better lightwind power from a smaller kite.
