I have childhood memories of flying kites on summer vacations at the beach with my family. But that’s about the only memories of flying kites I have, and that probably because they were such a pain in the butt to maneuver. And as that was about twenty or so years ago, I have come to learn that like everything else, the kite has been upgraded and improved.
Prism, a world renowned kite selling company, is now using high end materials, like carbon fiber, to make their kites more sturdy and durable. “Over the years we’ve literally reinvented kite manufacturing, bringing specialized tools, machines, and production techniques to an ancient art. We’ve introduced modern materials to create high-performance frames, sails and fittings that work together to bring you a flight experience impossible just two decades ago.”
The ‘Quantum’ is referred to as the ultimate choice for new pilots and is the company’s most popular sports kite. With a 7-foot wingspan and a carbon fiber frame, this kite is easy to adapt to. The kite is also equipped with their innovative shock absorber in the kite’s tail and Kevlar-reinforced nose, to protect the kite from any strong gusts of wind or crashes. Once the user is comfortable and at ease with the kite, the Quantum also possesses a Turbo bridle and advanced tuning to adjust the kite for tightness and stronger pull.
Prism opted to use carbon fiber and other high-tech materials for a multitude of reasons. Not only is carbon fiber extremely light, but its incredibly strong too as we all know. For stunt kites used in competitions, it definitely gives the user an edge. The added stiffness provides more strength and flexibility than others.
So whether you are on summer vacation at the beach playing with kits or competing, Prism kites are the ones to use as they are “the gold standard for design, quality and performance”.
