Duotone's recent name change from North Kiteboarding temporarily overshadowed the fact that the company's kites are some of the best performing kites available today--including the 2019 Duotone Dice. So let's turn attention back to what matters, the kites.
For kiteboarding champions Romeu Reno and Matchu Lopes, the 2019 Duotone Dice is a versatile kite that is perfect for riders who like to mix their disciplines between freestyle moves and surfing waves. With an increased radius profile, a slight delta shape and a redesigned, slightly thicker leading edge, the 2019 Duotone DICE is a progressive freestyle kite capable of incredible pop and great slack for performing tricks.
The smaller sizes (below 10m) have increased structural stiffness that make them capable of handling any wind speeds and perfect for breaking height records and extreme loops. The wing tip area was updated last year to allow for a more dynamic turn and improved handling. This will enable you to achieve bigger jumps and gain more control during loops; it also makes the DICE very effective in the waves. With highly responsive steering the kite feels right at home in cross-onshore conditions where you need to follow the kite down the line. Excellent drifting capabilities mean it is also at home in cross-offshore conditions too. It can be flown as a 4-line or 5-line set up depending on your style or preference, and there are tuning options to tweak the handling too. The hard setting now has a 20 mm longer pig tail, making it the perfect set up for Freestyle/Wakestyle moves, offering massive slack. Delivering outstanding pop and release for incredible freestyle performance and dynamic handling for wave riding prowess, roll the DICE and you’ll get a winning combination.
