Neo, Dice or Evo for 12m

Postby bremorf » Sun Dec 10, 2017 5:19 pm

I am on the hunt for an 11 or 12m for those 14 - 16 knot desperation days, where my 9m is not quite enough. I would appreciate people’s feedback on which North kite to get, as I cannot test them. I currently ride for the most part ride strapless, with the odd bit of tt boosting on Neo’s 5,7,9 in a very weekend warrior kook style.

I have heard that the Neo in those sizes is pretty slow. Therefore, I had been thinking about a 16 or 17 model Dice, due to the faster turning speed. But now the 2018 model evo has come out.... I am wondering if that may be the better option. I am thinking that the shape of the evo looks like it may have a better low end, meaning that I could drop down to an 11m.

I am not too interested in the mono.

In the video you can view the great drift of the new Evo. The Evo has a gradual power, if you like explosive power, more technical kite and less sheet and go feel, the Neo would a good choice.

Low-end preference? Personally, I believe the Evo is the best choice between the NEO, EVO or Dice 2018. For the record, We tested them all in 10m sizes.

If popularity is a thing for selling, last month views Evo '18 - 934 times, Dice '18 - 316 times, Neo '18 - 276 times (all organic)

How Neo 2017 can be compared to both these kites (Evo, Dice), in particular to the smaller sizes 6m and 8m.
