Comment

My experience with Dice has been terrific. It feels very direct...like every move of the bar is immediately transferred to the kite. It feels like an extension of my body. I appreciate the Dice being able to launch fully de-powered, it's a great Kite!!
You can feel the quality difference between North and other brands when handling the kite. The steerability is outstanding even unhooked!!!

Used for inland lake kiting this kite handles gusty conditions very well. The drift I need for waves or downwinders is superb. The sports car feel in my hands is what I love best! Send it up it takes you up quick! A tad spongy on the hard turn I think due to pulleys and 3 strut design. It's like there's a nano of a delay on the reverse change of direction. I think I would stiffen up the response a little bit. The graphics are getting there but still I think with such a cutting edge kite you need cutting edge graphics. Just having 2 colors (one on 1/2 and another on the other 1/2) isn't hip enough. I think North could take the image of the 2 Dice cubes and expand on that with some crazy casino images to add excitement to what is an exciting kite. Or the phrase "Roll With The Dice" somewhere on the kite with multiple colors. Anything to liven it up. Or perhaps images of waves and someone in the air to highlight it's 2 best attributes. I feel this kite isn't missing anything - it's got quality materials, fast inflate, simple effective design so I'm happy. I wish that prior to purchase I could speak to North riders via telephone as opposed to some dealers who hadn't flown it but were selling it. In the beginning launch of a new kite I believe the customers need to be able to speak with the riders who rode it most - North team riders...
