Prism SnapShot 2.5 RTF [USA PrismKites]
Prism Snapshot 2.5
RTF= Ready To Fly "Kite With Lines+Strap"
The Snapshot fits radical aerial thrills in your pocket, your briefcase, or the glove box of your car. Exceptionally fast and hard-pulling in all three sizes, even the diminutive 1.2 will keep you on your toes when the wind picks up. Unlike most parafoils, the Snapshot sports a tight, responsive turn that feels like driving a finely tuned sports car as compared to a truck; it just feels good carving up the sky.
Smaller than the foils you’d use for buggying or kiteboarding, these wings are the ideal intro to power kiting and dual-line control. They’re great for learning the basics because there’s nothing to break when you crash, but you’ll bring yours everywhere once you get the hang of it because they’re just so much fun. Carefully shaped inlets keep the wing from collapsing in gusty wind, a constant problem with lesser designs, and the elliptical planform with a new airfoil profile minimizes drag for awesome speed and acceleration.
With a 2.5 sq m sail area and impressive pull, the Snapshot 2.5 packs a big punch even in moderate winds and its tight, responsive handling makes it a lot more fun to fly than other foils its size. Simpler and more affordable than the sails you’d use for kiteboarding, the Snapshot is an ideal intro to power kiting, with enough thrust to drag even larger pilots down the beach. When you’re ready step up to the added control of four lines, the 2.5 converts instantly to a quad-liner just by adding quad handles and one more set of flying lines. Or add our convertible dual/quad control bar for the best of both worlds. Complete with Spectra dual lines pre-attached, flight straps, tail and compact pouch, the Snapshot will make a wind junkie out of you on your first breezy day.
