Quantum Stunt Kite - Ice
Too many people get a cheap little kite to learn on and figure they'll upgrade if they have fun. Problem is, most entry level kites are small and cheaply made, so they're downright frustrating to fly and much too easy to break- not exactly a recipe for success. If you're stubborn or just lucky enough to get up and flying, chances are you'll pick up the basics in an hour or two and be shopping for a "real" kite all too soon, because most beginner kites are just too squirrelly and unstable to do more than steer back and forth in the sky.
Our ultimate choice for new pilots, the Quantum's impressive 7-foot wingspan is big enough for serious pull and excitement and stable enough to make learning a snap. Wide wind range, adjustable bridle, and practically indestructible carbon frame make it the kite you can learn with now but never outgrow. Innovative shock absorber in the tail and Kevlar-reinforced nose forgive your unplanned landings, and once you've mastered the basics, just switch the bridle to the radical setting for stronger pull, tighter turns, and a sporty control response. Built with the same precision and attention to detail as Prism's top-end competition kites, the Quantum has hooked more people on kites than any other design in their lineup.
The quantum is dual-line excitement in a complete package engineered for success. Everything you need to get hooked is included, from pure Spectra lines, flight straps, and winder, to instructions printed on the inside of the bag (so you don't have to admit you read them!) And if the wind's really cranking, you'll be leaving little trenches in the sand as the kite pulls you around the beach! The Quantum is a Leap into the future!
