FREESTYLE / WAVE
The Duotone Dice 2021 is designed for big air, powerful lift, extreme kite loops and with impressive freestyle performance, the all-new Dice is the perfect kite for the rider who wants to go big while having fun!
Our thoughts on the Duotone Dice 2021…
The Dice is one of the newer kites in the Duotone range and it has changed slightly through the years to become a much more refined product. It’s been tweaked and improved, the pulleys have been removed and it’s much more supported through the leading edge now so there aren’t any issues when heavier riders use it or during strong gusty winds.
The kite is aimed at more advanced riders but it’s actually very user friendly and could be put in the hands of a complete beginner without any safety concerns at all. It’s stable, forgiving, easy to relaunch and has tonnes and tonnes of depower, but none of it at the expense of losing any performance.
The Duotone Dice 2021 is slightly more C shaped than the Duotone Evo, Neo or Rebel so it doesn’t have as powerful low end performance but it is the most responsive kite for the same reason and really performs well in the turns, kite loops and for boosting. It’s slightly more technical to go really high with than the Rebel or Evo but when you get it right, it’s really rewarding and you’ll hit the clouds.
Give this kite some decent wind and it really does boost to the moon. We had the pleasure of using this kite throughout the UK winter (which was a windy one!) and it blew us away with how much lift it has. If you find a ramp and get a good take off, you’ll be looking down thinking everything looks very small below you!
This is the most ridden kite among our local pro riders & the Duotone Groms on our local beaches.
Overall, it’s a very fun kite to use. Quick turning, fast through the sky, responsive through the bar and with great feedback – what’s not to like. It’s aimed at riders who want more from a kite than just jumping up and down (like the Duotone Rebel, Core XR, North Orbit, etc:), the Duotone Dice can do that but a whole lot more as well.
What Duotone Have To Say
- Extremely powerful lift and massive jump abilities
- Incredibly precise steering
- Perfect for kite loops and unhooked pop
- Impressive unhooked performance
- Optimised construction to reduce weight
- Pulley less bridle system
- Several tip tuning options
- Four or five line setup (5th line not included)
The new Dice has been designed by Ralf Grösel with the influence of Aaron Hadlow and Lasse Walker. The goal was to make a kite that would compete at the very top level of the King Of The Air, offering huge jumps and powerful loops. At the same time, the team wanted it to perform for unhooked tricks too, making it a really versatile performer.
This year the weight of the kite has been reduced to improve the flying characteristics, and the bridle has been tuned a lot with the pulley less design offering a very precise feel. These design changes for 2021 combine modern materials with an absolutely solid frame construction. This helps the kite to react very precise and responsive, yet being superstable in gusty or high wind conditions. Aaron and Lasse really wanted to maximise the jumping capabilities, and the fast turning nature makes it incredibly reactive and gives it an explosive launch off the water. By tuning the bridle and wingtips, the turning speed was increased while ensuring the loops are full power with plenty of sideways pull in the air.
For freestyle the Dice delivers a good amount of slack just after you pop. This allows you to throw the latest tricks with ease. The fast nature of the handling also lends the Dice well to wave riding, and the reduced weight improves the drifting capabilities. If you want a really high-performance all-round kite, then the Dice is the choice for you.
No matter what the conditions it is ready to go and when the conditions get wild, then the Duotone Dice 2021 will be there ready to help you fly!

MODERN TRAILING EDGE DESIGN
A narrower trailing edge with a lighter combination of materials to reduce wear and to create a slicker kite profile.
HEAVY DUTY LEADING EDGE CLOSING SEAM
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.
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.
LOAD DISTRIBUTION PANELS
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.
SELF RESCUE HANDLES
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.
The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.
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.
KOOK PROOF CONNECTORS
The kook proof line connection points prevent accidents by guaranteeing that you cannot accidentally connect your lines incorrectly when rigging your kite.
