No matter where you fly, there are days when the wind won’t blow. For your first few flights that’s OK, because you need a solid breeze to figure out the basics. But once you can keep the kite in the air, you’ll quickly find those light-wind days to be the most challenging — and the most fun.
The Prism Flashlight will get you up and flying on those glassy calm days with minimal cost and maximum simplicity. A great first ultralight sport kite, the Flashlight can teach you all the subtleties of light wind kite flying and take a beating gracefully while you learn. It’s light and responsive, with a lively feel that makes learning light-wind tricks easy. Fixed-position standoffs and a simple bridle mean there’s nothing to adjust — it flies great with no tweaking needed.
The Flashlight handles the learning curve of a new pilot with patience and forgiveness. The carbon frame is light but flexible enough to withstand abuse on the ground. Mini APA leading edge fittings and Micro standoff fittings hold tight with minimal weight. The sail is meticulously sewn from ripstop polyester for minimum weight and stretch. Polyester is lighter than Nylon and absorbs no moisture from the air, a big plus on those more humid days.
