FREESTYLE / WAVE

 

Every enthusiastic progressive rider look out, here comes the all-new Duotone Dice SLS 2022! The Dice is known for Freestyle, smashing loops and even performs in waves when steered actively – and it just got the SLS upgrade.

Designed to excel at big air and perform to the highest standards in freestyle and even waves, it boasts an army of fans worldwide. New for 2022, the Dice gets the Strong Light Superior makeover and a complete redesign to improve the performance. Whenever new materials are introduced, the design parameters change. The new Penta TX frame construction combined with the Trinity TX canopy has created a Dice like no other. The weight has been even further reduced, making the kite far more responsive in the air and increasing the overall wind range. On the way back up, the Duotone Dice SLS 2022 never gets stuck. In the waves you directly feel the increased drift. The kite jumps higher, hangs in the air for longer, and the mega loops have even more control! The team also tweaked the kites unhooked performance too. Fine-tuning the power release after you pop, it allows you to get even more tricks on the scoreboard.

It has been said in the past, but the new Duotone Dice SLS 2022 is undoubtedly the most impressive performing Freestyle kite on the water. Capable of taking you to the podium not only at a big air event, but also at the freestyle competition. 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 Duotone Dice SLS in your quiver.

Our thouhts on the Duotone Dice SLS 2022

We were impressed how the technology in the Duotone Evo SLS changed the characteristics of the kite compared to the standard model last year and the Dice has done the same again but in a more extreme way this time around. The Duotone Dice SLS 2022 is a different animal. Duotone have brought a kite to the market that is aggressive and a highly posed and effective performance machine. But, it’s still forgiving and the wind range is massive. In the smaller sizes (10m or smaller) and high winds this kite is an absolute weapon, it tears you off the water like no other hybrid kite available.

 

What the Duotone Dice SLS losses in hangtime compared to a truly flat kite, it gains in  responsiveness and agility. We’d take this over a slow, boring booster. This kite will put a smile on anyone’s face from intermediate level upwards!

TRINITY TX

Teijin is the world’s leading supplier of polyester fabrics and sail materials to marine sports. The combined creative power of Duotone saw the formulation of TRINITY TX. Exclusive to Duotone, TRINITY TX is a 3×2 canopy material, which has proven to be far superior to other canopy materials in terms of durability and dynamic performance.

The 3×2 yarn combination has proven to be the best solution in performance as well as durability, overall superior to any 2×2 or 4×4 yarn solutions. TRINITY TX. Made to stand the test of time.

The Duotone Dice SLS 2022 uses the proved and tested technology the Duotone Evo SLS used in 2021, which proved to be a revelation in kite technology and improvements.

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.

FUSION STRUT

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.

ANTI SNAG

The Anti Snag webbing is preventing the lines from tangling around the tip of the kite. Waterstarts are made easier and safety is increased.

DOUBLE-V PIGTAILS

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
