Rider Profile

Advanced Allrounder

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

The Dice is an incredibly versatile all-rounder; it’s the perfect tool for the rider who doesn’t like to define their kiteboarding. If you prefer to ride whatever the conditions throw at you, or indeed whatever takes your fancy, then the Dice is the right choice. Lasse Walker uses the Dice at the King Of The Air and the Megaloop Challenge, Tom Court uses it for freestyle and Matchu Lopes for wave riding, and the only definition is the one you give it. For 2020 the pulley in the bridle has been removed, making the steering even more accurate and responsive, enhancing its kite loop and wave riding characteristics. The new trailing edge wave design reduces canopy wear and flutter significantly, and the Dice can still be ridden in a four or five line set up depending on your preference. For years riders have been enjoying the Dice for freestyle and waves and now it’s got the big air credentials too! If you want a kite that can do it all, whatever mood you, or Mother Nature is in, you want the Dice.

Comments:
Tested the Dice 10m beside the Rebel 2020 & Neo 2020. The Dice is the middle one, the performance all rounder. The Rebel is about Hangtime and especially the second flat part of the jump. The Dice are best in the first part of the jump. The explosive lift. In the second part the Dice need a bit more help from the rider.

Where the Rebel has a lot of steer line pressure the Dice has the most pressure on the front lines, the turning circle is wider. Specially made for those boosting mid air kite loops. (Didn't try it, just read the books ;) but there you have the biggest difference between the Dice and Neo. The Turning Circle of the Dice is much bigger! So if you like a kite with a lot of lift, wide turning circle and the most pressure on the depower lines. The Dice can be your kite of choice.

Looking to get a new rebel or Dice. I currently have the EVO.. I was under the impression that the dice loops faster and tighter than the rebel.
The rebel is for jumping high and going up wind?
