Read the review. Was looking forward to it but got a bit disappointed - normally these guys describe Dice in small details: how it feels, how it handles, how it behaves in different conditions, what is different from last year.
Last 3 years Dice has not changed much, yet they have really described the changes in feeling.
This year, however, Dice has a huge change - lost pulleys - and the review was rather short. It loops better, that’s about it.
I have tested all of Dice models throughout the years and can confirm that these guys were always on point. They always managed to pick up details when kites seemed visually unchanged. This year the review seemed a bit rushed though IMO.
Have not tested the lite yet though..

From 6 to 4 battens?....... :o

Why in 2020 do kites still need them?
(aside from 1 strut kites)


2 years ago in T&C, a guy tomahawked his Evo on a botched loop (nothing too harsh) and the batten burst through the sleeve and his canopy.

The problem with this review is the context or a kite you compare dice to. I have a direct comparision with vegas, which is considered to beheavy on bar - I do not find dice light, feedback is very good. Although it is lighter on bar. I also liked vegas bar pressure. Imho its feedback that counts, not the bar pressure.

Secondly dice is not bad in lulls ... compared to vegas ;) If you are used to a rebel etc. alright I agree. Compared to a C it is very powerful.
I also do not agree wit hbackstalling. Tested dice for UH, no stall at all. However the time you can load the kite is shorter compared to a C kite.
