Prism Nexus Stunt Kite, Spectrum

January 14, 2014

Big enough for real-kite performance, small enough to pack in a suitcase, the Nexus is an adrenaline-filled intro to sport kiting that’s sure to get you hooked. Quick-turning and precise with a solid pull, the Nexus flies with the ease and control of a larger kite, with all the details that have made Prism the world’s leader in sport kite design. The Nexus features carbon leading edges and spreaders for instant response and great light-wind performance, and a flexible fiberglass spine to absorb the energy of those unplanned landings. The simple three-point bridle offers easy adjustment for a wide range of wind: Just tilt the nose forward for lighter winds or back for strong winds. Speedier and sportier than a full-sized wing, the Nexus is nicely balanced for intermediate freestyle tricks so you won’t get bored once you learn the basics. Comes complete with low-stretch Spectra lines, winder, flight straps and a handy travel case that’s small enough to bring every time you head for the outdoors.Quick and agile but easy for beginners, this sport kite with Prism’s “Spectrum” color pattern has a 5-foot wing span but folds down to 28 inches long so it can be packed in a suitcase or backpack inside a zippered travel case that comes with the kite. Easy instructions are printed on the case so they’re always handy. Capable of an wide range of acrobatic maneuvers at speeds up to 60 mph, the kite will fly in winds as low as 4 mph, a plus for inland pilots, and also fly in winds up to 22 mph, a plus for beach pilots. In higher wind it’s got a solid pull. The frame is carbon fiber/fiberglass composite for instant response and light-wind performance. Its delta wing is shaped from ripstop nylon and Mylar laminate, with Kevlar reinforcements at nose and tail for impact resistance. The kite’s ready-to-flight package comprises two 65-foot low-stretch Spectra lines, winder, and flight straps. Color-coded lines make setup simple.

About Prism
An avid windsurfer, pilot and competitive sailor, Mark Reed, now president of Prism Designs, discovered two-line sport kiting in the late 1990s, when he was in college and sport kites were, at best, primitive. In 1991, his hobby became a business in a tiny house in Seattle. From that modest beginning, Prism has grown into a worldwide business, introducing and explaining the sport as it grew. Today, Prism manufactures in Seattle and Asia and carries two lines of kites, with models for first-time flyers up to world-ranked competition pilots.
