The Dice Product Clip
The launch of the Dice last year not only blasted all expectations out of the water, it also broke all our previous sales records for a new Kite! A favourite amongst the test teams, magazines and riders its playful nature continues to prevail and everyone loves it! This year, the profile of the Kite has been opened up improving the low end capabilities of the Kite, allowing the generation of more power in lighter winds and bringing more stability at the top end of the Kites range. The drifting abilities of the Dice remain impressive allowing Wave riders to push it to the limits, whilst keeping it steady in the air for un hooking during Freestyle.
The new Trust Bar
The North Kiteboarding Trust Bar, is the most progressive and effective tool with which to steer your Kite. Teamed with the included Iron Heart IV, it's the most functional safety system allowing peace of mind and confidence when hitting the water.

Having made a name for itself within the Kitesurfing industry, professional and amateur riders alike agree that it stands for unrivalled safety and reliability. Don't accept anything less than the best!
