    The Sum of 5


    Since the announcement of "The Sum of 5” with Hannah Whiteley, Mikaili Sol, Francesca Bagnoli, Paula Novotna and Colleen Carroll in the main roles, the Duotone's video has been the most expected premiere in the kiteboard world. Today we know that it was worth waiting for!


    “We are not here to sell you on a dream. A video filled with smoke and mirrors.  The perfect day doesn’t exist. The perfect session, the perfect trip… Moments of perfection are relative, intangible, unpredictable. They happen when every little detail comes together, with just the right timing.”





    Passion and persistence are unrelenting forces that drive athletes Hannah Whiteley, Mikaili Sol, Francesca Bagnoli, Paula Novotna and Colleen Carroll to push past their existing limitations. Despite their differences in background, discipline, personality or style, these five women come together as a single unit to create something that is more than the sum of their parts. We present to you, The Sum of 5.

      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!”
      Reno Romeu
      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.
      What´s new
      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!“
      Lasse Walker
      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.
