Duotone launch the 2022 Dice SLS

DuoTone Dice SLS



Media release from Duotone, 20th September 2021

The ultimate quiver killer infamous for its unbelievable performance in freestyle, mega loops and even in the waves, just got the SLS upgrade resulting in next-level performance and even more direct handling. Where the Dice has already left its mark in the industry as an incredibly versatile all-rounder, boasting an army of fans worldwide, the leap in performance that the Strong – Superior – Light version of it is about to shock the kite world with, doesn’t happen very often.



Due to the use of a carefully resourced, innovative material mix, the original kite design got a complete makeover advancing performance features and flying characteristics of the DuoTone Dice SLS to a level that was previously simply impossible. With a 15% weight reduction to the original model, the new, stiffer Penta TX frame construction combined with the Trinity TX canopy has made the Dice SLS far more responsive in the air with an increased overall wind range. The kite jumps higher, hangs in the air for longer and offers even more control sending it in mega loops. But that’s not it! The Duotone team also tweaked the kite’s unhooked performance as well as its drifting abilities for the waves.

If your riding is not defined by one category, the Dice SLS is a finely tuned weapon and your partner in crime that will catapult your riding to the next level!

DuoTone Dice SLS - Ralf Grosel


Going behind the design of the all-new 2022 Dice SLS, Duotone Designer Ralf Grösel fills us in on the geometry and profile changes he needed to make to the original Dice design in order to integrate the stiffer Penta TX material resulting in an enormous leap in performance. Pointing out the biggest improvements of the entire SLS development, Ralf speaks about the time testing with Aaron Hadlow and Marian Hund in South Africa and Namibia, and taking advantage of the feedback from the already released first edition Neo SLS and Evo SLS. Furthermore, Ralf shares with us his recommended settings and why his comparison of the Dice SLS to the original Dice is like comparing a Porsche 911 GT3 to a standard Porsche 911.
