Prism Flip beginner - Intermediate Kite

A truly unique kiting experience awaits with Prism's® eye-catching Flip kite.

Based on a patented design by Steve Wingert, the Flip's rotor spins its way into the sky. Like a kaleidoscope in motion, the vivid graphics blend and blur, creating colors and patterns that can only be seen while it spins. It's easy to fly in a wide wind range, and the vertical ring acts like a stabilizing gyroscope making it rock-steady even in gusty winds. The magic of this unusual little kite will bring a smile to your face and stares of amazement wherever you fly.

Rotors are one of the eight basic kite forms, yet few people have flown or even seen one. Rotors fly by spinning with the wind, achieving lift via the Magnus Effect, the same principle that gives golf balls loft and baseball pitches their curve. As the kite flies, you'll feel a pulsing at the end of your line while it spins as fast as 200rpm like a mysterious, wind powered machine.

Best of all, there's literally no assembly required. Just flip the stabilizing ring from flat to vertical, clip on your flying line and you're ready to go. Find a little wind, pop it open, and watch it spin as it climbs into the sky. Amazingly durable, the Flip Kite is fun and easy to fly for all ages.

Prism® was founded in 1992 by a couple of guys who fell in love with the wind. They started off making high-tech, dual-line stunt kites when the sport was young. They brought space age materials such as graphite composites, Spectra, and Kevlar to an ancient art - and along the way redefined a pastime for the fanatical few who shared their passion.

While stunt kites will always remain close to their hearts and provide them with their most technical design challenges, these days they work to bring flight to the more casual user as well. Whether you're looking for the perfect single liner for a family outing, the challenge of ripping up the sky with a stunt kite, or the exhilaration and heart-pumping thrill of a power kite, look to Prism.

Prism is dedicated to putting the magic of flight at your fingertips wherever you go. So pick up a kite and let it lift your spirit into the sky.
