Prism Zero G Glider
Imagine a precision made flying machine that glides magically on the lightest air currents, defying gravity with the lift of a high-performance
sailplane and weighing less than 2 ounces. Toss it as a glider with no string attached, or soar through the sky with
precise control just by pulling and releasing the line. The Zero G is a true canard-style aircraft, with the smaller
wings facing forward in tethered and gliding flight. Unlike traditional kites, it will glide like a airplane when you
release the line, making it incredibly easy for beginners and experts alike because it can't stall and fall out of the sky.
Pull it up over your head and then slack the line to watch it glide as far as space allows, tantalizing you to skip out of
work early on those light wind days. The Prism Zero-G Glider Kite is a kite that flies super easy but is also controllable
like a fighter.
Conceived in collaboration with celebrated Malaysian designer Ceewan, the Zero G concept was inspired by Reinhold Platz, chief
designer for the Fokker Aircraft Company after WW1. Decades before the modern hang glider, he built and flew a full-scale
canard-winged craft that folded up to carry on a bicycle. With small wings in front, the canard configuration allows a
virtually stall-proof glider that will float eerily in a level attitude even when it's barely flying forward. A clever
dynamic bridle adjusts the angle of the forward wings in flight according to the tension on the line, allowing the kite to
behave as a kite under tension and a glider whenever the line is released.
With its tensioned fabric wing and minimalist structure, the Zero G Glider Kite is high-tech flying art that looks as good as
it flies. This kite is so beautiful, you could hang it on the wall when you're not flying and discuss form and function
dance together in this remarkable flying machine.
The Prism Zero G packs up small in a well designed protective zippered shell case, the Zero G includes an ultralight carbon
fiber frame, ripstop polyester sail, custom molded fittings and and 100 feet of 30# flying line on a polycarbonate winder.
Its amazing how much big time fun can come in such a small package. The Prism Zero G will change how you look at zero wind
or indoor flying days, making them as much or more fun that when there is wind.
