The 2017 North Dice is one of the most advanced kites ever build. A pure engineering marvel, the Dice is extremely responsive, fast and intuitive.
2017 North Kiteboarding Dice has been redefined and improved making it one of the most popular kites in the line. The kite has undergone several major changes. The panel layout has been completely reworked which has adjusted the overall canopy tension. This has impacted the steering and handling characteristics. The leading edge dacron strip that connects the tips of the kite that was first implemented on the Vegas last year is now present on the Dice.This unifies the tips of the kite which increases the responsive and reactive steering. The trailing edge dacron has also been widened. This increases durability, strength, and stability in the air. Norths new ability to 3d form their kites has allowed them to deliberately shape the way the canopy forms in the air. The result is an increasingly stable canopy which makes this kites wake style and unhooking abilities unparalleled.
To improve the wave riding elements, North has reworked the struts by reinforcing along the length making them thinner, stiffer and more curved. This gives the kite a much more playful and responsive steering. Each of the tip settings has undergone pigtail length changes. This has unified all of the tip settings allowing the kite to be customized to each riders style. As with the previous years, there are three different tip settings. The Hard setting is used for wake style and unhooked riding. This increases the bar pressure and slightly slows the steering and slightly less depower. The medium setting is the stock set up the kite comes on in the bag. This setting is for all around freeriding. The Soft setting is what is recommended for wave riding. This provides faster steering, less bar pressure, and a slightly more playful feeling through the kite. Also for 2017 the connection between the valve and the pump is now seamless. Making it easy to inflate and deflate your kite.
Xenon has pioneered bringing snowboard construction techniques and materials to kiteboarding. Starting with a Paulownia wood core and under ultra high pressure a stiff carbon deck is sandwiched to a durable and flexible bottom. The result is a board that literally pops. Speaking of pop, these boards have a following of riders. When you get it so right that you wouldn’t dare change even the slightest detail, that’s LaLuz and that’s why Xenon doesn’t mess with this shape. How’s that light come’n?
