Made of ripstop nylon with fiberglass spars, it springs open - no assembly required. 2’-6” x 1’-8”, it flattens to 14” x 35” for transport. Wind range: 4 to 25 mph.

    This is a fantastic kite! It was given to me as a birthday gift and it's so much fun to fly. It seems that Prism averaged out the wind ranges on the EO series between the two models and this one is slightly higher than it's larger sibling flying well in recommended wind ranges of 5-25mph (according to their website). I think this is about right as I had difficulty getting it into the air at less than 5mph. In a steady wind, it's very easy to fly, climbs easily and it's great to play with it tumbling and spinning and then getting it to climb again. It has a personality a little like a fighter in that when it's tumbling in the sky, the direction the bridle is pointing is the direction it will go when you tug the line. Has quite a personality in erratic winds and would probably be a heading towards the intermediate end of the beginner scale in that situation. It's easy enough for a beginner to fly but enough of a challenge to keep it interesting. I love that it springs into shape instantly and there's no setup other than clipping the line to the bridle. Stores completely flat and I have it hanging on my wall. Get this! It's simply too much fun!!!

    I had about 5 different kites up including a 19 foot delta with three tails and I got more comments on this kite then all the kites combined. I don't understand why everyone liked it so much but I am going to get the Prism E08. Great kite, flies very well.

    This one is a definite looker. Launches easily from the hand and climbs quickly. Don't turn your back on it 'cause once it's in the air it can have a mind of it's own. Made a beeline for the roof a couple of times but it was gracious enough to save itself. Fun to fly and watch, very pretty in the air. I need to spend some time with it, see if I can bend it to my will. If you have wide open spaces you could really turn this one loose.
