I have demo'd the Dice twice. Once back to back with a 2012 10m Ozone C4 in 18-20 knots, I used the north bar on this test.
Once back to back with a 2014 10m Ozone Reo in 23-28 knots, I used the ozone bar on this test.
At 82kg the I think this would be my usable wind range for the kite. 18-28 knots. At 18 knots it was fun and still had some nice lift. I would be able to use it in lower wind but it would be boring for me. I began to reach for the trim at 25-26knots. Boosts were awesome at the top end of the range.
that's great info... thank you very much
I am 86 and I own 2 boards a Radical L 139x43 squared and flat for light wind days and an Influence 137 for the normal/high wind session.
From what you say I can expect 18-30 knots... 18 with the large board to try new stuff without getting smashed too hard and 30 knots at the top end limit for big airs...
at 28 were you still in good control with kite usable and fun or were you feel really at the limit? was it flat water?
I like to be powered up, but with the RPM 10m at 26/30 knots the kite deforms and I always struggled with the bar pushed away as much as I could. While a friend with hid 9m fuse was still in very good control... (unfortunately I do not like how the fuse or the rebel feels on the bar with a too much on/off depower)
if with the dice at 28/30knots it will be at its top-end but still in decent control it would be great.
