Gaastra Pure vs. Duotone Dice

Postby Kitemenn » Sat Nov 23, 2019 7:53 am

To keep it short, how do these kites compare? Shape is looking quite similar also no pulleys. The resale value will be less but buying price is also significantly lower!

My style is Big Air and starting big kite loops (don’t want to call it mega loops just yet)

Any experience of these two kites? Thanks

I have both ..the 2018 Pure in a 12m and its the best 12m I ever used..just got me 2 Dices in 2019 in the 10m and 8m and they are sweet...super quick to turn or loop..the quality is much better on the Dices and probably has an edge on performance too. You can get Pure about 35% cheaper than Dice but they are really hard to sell on..Dice will sell much faster and last longer and you can get 2019 Dice now for bargain prices...If u got a low budget then Pure is a good choice but trust me ,try and squeeze the money towards the Dice,worth the extra dosh...They are my best kites too date...love them.

Thanks thats good info! Saw a good black friday deal on the Pure 2018 model 550 euros every size...but think I shouldnt rush into it and do some proper testing before buying! Dices are also my favorite...let see what it turns out to.

Hi, where is this deal? I use only gaastra kites and I am considering buying a 5m 👍

The Pure is based on the same shape as Dice (open C) super looper and the Spark based on the the Evo shape big air and hang time...Depends what you want...Had a few older Evos and they pulled like a train..sore elbows but the newer 1 are supposed to be great...Next year I will get a newer Evo or Spark and see what Im gona favour between them models...

Hi Kitemenn, I chose them because the school I learned with was a dealer for them and they were decently priced. I am not massively experienced with other kites.

I am happy with them so far and cannot complain. I broke a few lines on the bar but that's really it.
