Zenith 5 Delta Kite (aka The New Stowaway)
The next generation of Prism's best-selling & high-flying 5 foot single-line delta, with a fresh new look and a re-engineered wing for extra stability on those days when the wind is gusty or turbulent.
The Zenith 5 folds down to 21” so you can take it anywhere, with snap-on tails that will break free if you ever get them tangled in a tree.
Bungees inside the frame make it a cinch to assemble & rods snap into place like tent poles with no separate parts to lose in the grass. Prism quality and attention to detail throughout, with an easy-to-use hoop winder and quality braided line.
- Size In-Flight: 64 Inches
- Size Packed: 21 Inches
- Wind Rating: 5-25mph (Leaves just starting to rustle up to larger tree branches starting to sway)
- What's included inside? Number 1: The kite itself. Next you'll find 200ft of 50lb braided kite line and a hoop winder for easy use. Last is a perfectly sized bag to store the Zenith for those days the wind just isn't cooperating.
I ordered 6 Zenith Delta Flyers for my grandchildren and one for me. I flew my Zenith for the first time and I could not get to fly because you need 5mph sustainable wind to get it to fly. When the wind conditions where right the Zenith took right off from my hand and climb really fast. Great kite my grand kids are going to have a great time with this kite.
I purchased a cheap kite from Bezos that had flimsy rods, poor quality stitching and thin material. It is great for light wind, and weighs nothing.
The Spectrum 5 is an adult version that is made with rugged rods, high quality stitching and material. It is packaged very well in a sack and is excellent in moderate to high wind. I would advocate for getting a reel rather than a traditional spool, because of the size of the kite, in high wind it is really nice to have the ability to reel it in quickly and with ease. I have punched this kite into terra firma at full tilt at least 6-8 times and is unaffected and undamaged. This is the kite to purchase if you do not want to be disappointed. oh yeah, it assembles quickly, and breaks down even quicker.
I haven’t owned a kite since I was a kid. Loads of fun to fly have gotten in the air a few times and brings back great memories. Easy to put together and packs up small enough to take anywhere.
I really like what the kite is made of, especially compared to the last cheap plastic kite i had bought.
Although i find it kinda hard to get airborne without quite a bit of wind.
Sometimes if the wind does down enough it just falls.
Its hit the ground hard a couple times from a ways up.
