The new Zephyr is your dream machine if you appreciate the finesse of light wind flying and the subtler finger and wrist control you´ll develop after you master the basics. While not a fragile ultralight for zero-wind flying, it’s designed for those lighter, sweeter winds you’ll crave as you learn to stall, slide, and control the kite gracefully at the edges of the envelope.

The Zephyr is beautifully balanced, as comfortable floating on its back as it is in a stall. The hand-wrapped SkyShark graphite spars Prism use in their top-end competition kites give you instant response for a masterful touch. Highly maneuverable in all attitudes, you’ll execute the most challenging moves with utter control. Prism designed no-snag leading edge pockets and included yo-yo stoppers so the wing rolls around itself easily for all the latest aerobatic moves. The Zephyr also features a 17 gram removable spine weight so you can change the balance point for different winds and flying styles.

Prism have added three vibrant new color combinations and simplified the Zephyr package to include one 100' x 90lb Spectra lineset and a nicely detailed, embroidered travel bag.

Yo-Yo Stoppers

The Yo-Yo is an advanced trick in which you flip the kite on its back and then all the way around so that the lines are wrapped one or more times around the kite. Many other radical combinations are possible based on the yo-yo. The two rubber fittings on the leading edge between the upper and lower spreader elbows act as hooks to catch the lines in a position that lets you steer the kite around in a rolled-up position before you unroll it with a crowd-pleasing flourish.

Spine Weight

The T-shaped steel weight included with your Zephyr allows you to change the balance of the kite for advanced tricks such as yo-yos and other 'pitch unstable' moves in stronger winds. The removable weight slides into the tip of the spine and is secured by the Velcro strap around the tail. It adds 17 grams (.6 oz) to the kite and moves the center of gravity slightly lower, giving the kite a more radical edge and allowing you to flip it on its back and into yo-yo maneuvers with less effort. Adding weight also tames the kite in stronger winds because the wind has to do more work to keep it flying. With weight, your Zephyr will fly slower and pull less hard as the breeze comes up, a nice bonus that lets you fly the kite in a wider wind range. Advanced pilots typically use the weight in winds above 10 mph, or with a particularly aggressive flying style.

Adjustable Leechline

The leechline runs inside the trailing edge and is tensioned and tied off at the wingtips, it stabilizes the trailing edge of the sail and prevents it from fluttering in flight, keeping the kite silent. With the leechline loose, the sail will buzz in flight, especially in stronger winds. By adjusting the tension on the leechline you can set the kite up for your preferred flying style. We tend to prefer the tight precision and reduced pull of a loose leechline, but some pilots don’t like the noise and prefer the silky-smooth feel of a silent setup.

Adjustable Bridle

The bridle geometry is easy to adjust for light to strong winds. It is not necessary to move your bridle from the factory setting, but doing so will let your kite fly in the widest wind range. Simply slide the friction knots toward the 'light wind' setting for lighter breezes or towards the 'strong wind' setting for windy days. Very small adjustments make a big difference. Limit knots on the bridle will keep you from over-tuning the kite out of flying range.

Yo-yo fittings on leading edge catch your lines and let you fly normally in and out of yo-yo maneuvers
