Watch the 2020 DICE in action whilst we talk you through every update, performance feature and overall design that creates a versatile all-round kite
“I froth on doing extreme big airs, and with the new Dice I can boost higher and pull off more aggressive megaloops than ever before, it’s so sick!”
Freestyle, waves and big air, the Dice does it all and can handle anything you can throw at it.
Ralf Grösel brought the first Dice to market with Tom Court who wanted a wakestyle/freeride kite with flavour. Matchu Lopes looked for a top performer for wave riding with stability and pop for strapless freestyle. With the Red Bull King of the Air and the Megaloop challenge captivating riders like Lasse Walker, the 2020 Dice is the intuitive, 3-strut, extreme performer, pushed and developed to perfection with show stopping megaloop potential.
New, lighter Trailing Edge wave patch for reduced flutter and TE flutter marks No bridle-pulley for an ultra-compact and precise canopy structure Improved bar feedback at the top of the windrange Maximised jumping performance and hang time due to optimised profile and TE cone adjustment
Behind The Design of the 2020 DICE - Ralf Grösel
For the first time ever, I removed the pulley within the kite bridles. This small change has a big impact on handling and in-flight characteristics. The biggest benefit is the more compact Leading Edge frame which can carry more energy during the take-off sequence resulting in much higher jumps.
The boldest Team riders share why the 2020 Dice continues to deliver
“The 2020 Duotone Dice is a machine! Through the new refinements it absolutely excels in performance when I’m doing Extreme Big Air. But, it also still has the overall feel and smooth handling the Dice has become famous for. This year the kite has a much more direct response, a super crisp feel and is way faster, which means heaps more fun and longer jumps!“
2020 DICE in a Nutshell
Inspired by the Red Bull King of the Air and team rider Lasse Walker, the DICE has been equipped with a fixed bridle system to unleash the most radical performance we have ever seen on a bridled C-Kite. Accurate and responsive, it’s the fine tuned favourite no matter the conditions.
