Product Description
Big enough for real-kite performance, small enough to pack in a suitcase, the Nexus is an adrenaline-filled intro to sport kiting that’s sure to get you hooked. Quick-turning and precise with a solid pull, the Nexus flies with the ease and control of a larger kite, with all the details that have made Prism the world’s leader in sport kite design. The Nexus features carbon leading edges and spreaders for instant response and great light-wind performance, and a flexible fiberglass spine to absorb the energy of those unplanned landings. The simple three-point bridle offers easy adjustment for a wide range of wind: Just tilt the nose forward for lighter winds or back for strong winds. Speedier and sportier than a full-sized wing, the Nexus is nicely balanced for intermediate freestyle tricks so you won’t get bored once you learn the basics. Comes complete with low-stretch Spectra lines, winder, flight straps and a handy travel case that’s small enough to bring every time you head for the outdoors.Amazon.com Product Description

About Prism
An avid windsurfer, pilot and competitive sailor, Mark Reed, now president of Prism Designs, discovered two-line sport kiting in the late 1990s, when he was in college and sport kites were, at best, primitive. In 1991, his hobby became a business in a tiny house in Seattle. From that modest beginning, Prism has grown into a worldwide business, introducing and explaining the sport as it grew. Today, Prism manufactures in Seattle and Asia and carries two lines of kites, with models for first-time flyers up to world-ranked competition pilots.

    I actually went to a kite shop at the Outer Banks, Kitty Hawk Kites and purchased this kite. I had several traditional kites before and wanted to do something a little more than hold a string still.

    They recomended this kite for anyone getting into the sport. It is extremely durable and can take tons of poundings to the ground.

    Once I got it home and took it out for a spin I was hooked! It was so much fun and so entertaining! I loved watching people as they went by stopping and looking at this kite.

    I also was impressed with how easy it was to assemble. The instuctions were very clear and there are even instuctions pinted on the case so that you don’t lose them. It folds up so compact that you can really take it anywhere.

    I love Prism brand kites above all others. They always seem to last far beyond they ever should. They are high quality kites that are very affordable. That is another plus about the Nexus, it is so affordable.

    I have bought more advanced kites since the Nexus but this is still one of my favorites. This is an excellent beginer kite that is fun for all!

    The Nexus was my first `real’ stunt kite, and it’s the one that got me hooked on the sport.

    I had some thoughts about getting into kiting before, and I thought I’d give it a try with a good beginner kite. The Nexus was a great choice to start with. It gives you all the controls and maneuverability you’ll need to get started and see if kiting is for you!

    It’s very affordable and durable for the beginner; these are the points I really liked about it.

    I’ve had just my Nexus with me on a few business trips. It’s small so it comes right into my suitcase and to the site I’m assigned to for that week of business. It sits with me at the back of boardroom, just waiting for those meetings to be over for the day!

    It took me all of a few days in good wind to realize kiting was for me… not too long after I moved up a notch and purchased some higher end models from Prism.

    Prism’s quality and support is fantastic, and rare to see these days in the business world. It’s a pleasure dealing with them and flying their awesome designs! They have the best quality team and support I’ve seen in the kiting industry, second to none.

    Still flying Prism kites today and I hope many many years to come!!

    The only bad thing I found with getting a Nexus was deciding which color scheme to go with, they all rock!

    When you move up the Prism line, you can keep this kite with you.

    There will always be a friend(s)/family member you can help get started in the sport with this trainer!

    Well I recieved my kite Thursday was really excited but suprised at the box it came in. I had ordered another kite for my younger brother and his had a 70in wingspan. I had read in the product features:

    Product Features

    A dual-line kite perfect for novice to intermediate kite fliers

    84″ wing span is effective for winds 3 – 25 mph

    Graphite frame with ripstop nylon & mylar sail

    Kevlar-reinforced nose forgive your unplanned landings

    Compact, take-it-anywhere package includes Spectra lines, winder, flight straps, and travel case with easy instructions printed right on the back.

    Note it says 84″ wing Span I was hooked and really did not bother reading the rest under product features:

    SPECS: Skill level: novice – intermediate, Wing span: 60″ (152 cm)

    Yes, the Nexus comes with a 60″ Wing Span, while on the other hand the Prism Quantum is the one that really comes with the 84″ Wing Span (7ft).

    My brother and I took our kites out for the first time today, we are pure begginers to stunt kites and well honestly have not flown a kite in years. We enjoyed our time out there even with every hard crash we made, and the frustration of trying to get the kite to do what we wanted. Now I know for sure it’s going to take some practice. I think I’m actually glad the Nexus is a 60″ wing span now that I flew it. So, other than my downer when I realized I the wing span was not what I read; the Nexus Kite from Prism is an awesome kite and I really do recommend it. Next time I will just have to read more carefully and I’m sure the Quantum is next in line for me. Happy Kite Flying!

    I bought this for my 15 year old son for Christmas. He was disappointed to receive “just a kite”, until he started using it. Now he loves it, and tries to find time every day to go outside to use it, even though it is freezing. I had to make a couple adjustments to the lines to keep it up in the air when we first got it, but now it works great. Very high quality materials, and a tough kite. It has crashed into the ground and various bushes and trees at full speed without any noticeable damage. Lots and lots of fun….I am thinking of getting one for myself so we can fly them together.
