Duotone Dice SLS
Ask a question
The Duotone Dice SLS offers performance across a wide range of disciplines; freestyle, big air, kite loops, and breaking waves, bringing the fun factor to new levels! Light, fast and with even more control, this is the go-to kite for riders who want to ride unhooked.
The new Duotone Dice SLS defines versatility with a more refined feel and improved performance across the range. For 2024 the radius arc of the kite has been optimised, improving the flying characteristics; 5m and 6m have also been added to the range, perfect for lighter riders, loops and riding in waves when it’s really windy. The kite has been designed for kiters looking to maximise every session, offering unparalleled performance across a wide range of disciplines.
The SLS construction significantly reduces the overall weight while providing a stiffer airframe that enhances precise handling. The jumping capabilities of the Dice SLS have been improved too, delivering an immensely powerful lift during take-off and offering massive hangtime that will leave you soaring through the air. In addition, the bar feeling is remarkably direct, and the kite's impressive turning speed ensures you receive ample feedback and maintain total control throughout your ride.
The bar feeling is extremely direct, and the turning speed of the new kite is unrivalled, always giving you all the feedback you can desire and total control. Kite loops are powerful, and you can dial in the type of loop you want to do. This kite is the weapon of choice for riders looking to get radical with their kite loop progression.
This quiver killer kite can trade blows with the Vegas, while pulling jumps and loops big enough to win the King of the Air. It isn't often that a leap forwards in performance like this comes along. If getting bigger jumps, landing more complex tricks and even smashing some waves gets you excited for a session, you will need the Dice SLS in your quiver.
Penta TX, the guarantee for a sportier, more precise and crisper feel of the kite, achieved by 15% less overall weight and a five times higher tear resistance. Penta TX replaces Dacron and is showing 50% less elongation compared to standard Dacron.
Penta TX is a quite stiff material, resulting in a high structural stiffness, especially recognizable in strong wind conditions, leading to less deformation of the overall structure of the kite.
It's responsible for a very precise timing when edging, releasing the edge and all steering impulses - the precise and reliable steering of a racing car. Penta TX is used in the leading edge and the centre strut.
A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.
The Trailing Edge Force Control is responsible for the smooth power distribution between the different materials of the kite, forcing the tensions in the right directions.
Since 2013 the waves are higher and wider to eliminate stress points between the Dacron Trailing Edge and the Trinity TX Canopy material.
This change in construction reduces fluttering marks and ensures that the material is not wearing out.
The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.
These pigtails distribute the load of the line connections to the kite, minimizing the risk of fatigue, making the kite less prone to distortion and helps it to steer more smoothly.
As kite geometry improves, the canopy must continue to resist increasing forces. To spread these forces, Load-Distribution-Panels are used, holding the kite’s shape even under the most extreme loads.
In practice this gives a smoother and more consistent performance from the kite in any riding situation.
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite.
Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
The self-rescue handles on the inside of the wingtips can be easily found in case of an offshore break down.
They provide a good, comfortable grip while sailing back to the shore during a self-rescue manoeuvre.
This construction allows for a controlled distribution of forces between strut and leading edge.
Struts are 100% connected to the leading edge with a flexible Dyneema line, which promotes higher canopy tension and a clean profile.
The leading edges of all kites are extremely durable due to a special heavy duty closing seam.
The Dacron material at the leading edge is reinforced with a self sticky Insignia Tape and double stitched additionally.
The Heavy Duty Leading Edge Closing Seam is resistant to very high tensions and diagonal forces.
Riders of all levels, from pros to newcomers, will all gain substantial advantages from the new Duotone Trust Bar system.
Safety - perform all moves with safety leashWater Start - without swimmingPerformance - increased performance due to wider wind range
All kites can be flown with the same bar, just the short line attached in the middle of the leading edge has to be adjusted to the different kite sizes. Instructions will be attached to all bars or upgrades.
Different styles of riding, different kite models or the kite size can be influencing factors that require different line length.
In order to further increase this synergy effect the 19 and 22 m lines come now on a medium bar (49 / 42 cm) and the 24 and 27m lines on a large bar (53 / 46 cm).
The bar is the riders’ first point of contact with the kite. In order to achieve a maximum in comfort of riding it is essential to match the kite and the riders’ style of riding to the correct line length.
Super fast and reactive tuning speeds, shorter lines are best for extreme freestyle and crazy kiteloops. They are also excellent for wave riding, where kite turning speed is important. Wakestyle riders like the close connection to the kite too. The disadvantage is you lose some of the low end power.
Fast and reactive turningExtreme Freestyle, Wakestyle and WavesTight, super fast and hard kite loops
The favourite length for freestyle and waves! These 22m lines are still great for getting lots of speed from the kite, perfect for wave riding and freestyle. Not as extreme as the 19m lines, they still lose a bit of low end power.
Reactive turningFast Kite LoopsGreat setup for freestyle ridersBest choice for waveriding
The best choice for an all round length, good turning speed combined with good power make 24m the perfect choice for a lot of riders. Great for freeride, waves and freestyle.
Most Versatile LengthGreat for all-round freeridingGood low end and a good turning speedMost Versatile LengthHigh jumps as you can “load” the linesThe recommended size for a one bar quiver
The extra length means extra power, get a little more range out of your quiver by adding this bar with the longer lines. They are also great for jumping as you can really “load” the lines when you edge and send the kite back through the window.
Enormous Low End PowerHuge JumpsLots of Lift
The bar is your first point of contact with the kite, It is the connection between you and your kite and it is important to get it right. And it’s actually an easy formula: The shorter the lines, the more direct and faster the kite turns. The longer the lines, the more power you can generate out of them! Choose a Duotone Trust Bar, and choose the right line set up for your style of riding.
