Quantum 2.0 Stunt Kite
If it’s not broken don’t fix it? To heck with that – we gave the legendary Quantum a fun upgrade for 2020 anyway! The goal was to keep everything pilots love about the Quantum while adding even more flight performance, some sweet details to make it easier to use, and fun new graphics and colors just to freshen things up.
We’ve tweaked the wing shape to give it even better tracking and additional stability, making it easier to keep aloft in light winds without pro-level skills.
We’ve made a subtle change to the bridle geometry and added a super-quick, one-step bridle adjustment at the center T so it’s a cinch to set your kite for different winds.
We’ve upgraded the bag to a new design that lets you roll it up and clip to a belt loop while you fly – no more bags blowing down the beach in the wind. An external pouch for your lineset keeps it from getting tangled. In a hurry to get off the beach? A cleverly hidden extension sleeve pops out if you want to store your kite full-length without folding the leading edges.
The Quantum now features removable, color-coded line attachment clips, so you can just pop off the clips if you prefer to attach lines with an old-school Lark’s head knot.
Ready to replace a well-loved older Quantum? The Quantum 2.0 keeps the same frame geometry, carbon rods and fittings so it’s backward compatible – no new spare parts needed!

Really sad to say that my kite ripped before I had a chance to try it. Small tear as I was assembling it at home for the first time. I've owned many Prism kites and have never had any issue beyond normal wear and tear.
For as much moneys as I spent I would expect better. Real bummer.
This is not my first time flying dual line kite, I have 3 other parafoil kites. This was my first time flying a rigid frame dual kite. They perform about the same, small difference’s. But unfortunately after about 20 minutes of flying this Quantum rigid frame kite, I lost some of my wind and the kite eased to the ground. I have in the past by slightly tugging on my left or right lanyard (strings) you can flip or turn the kite to catch the wind again , and the kite pops up into the wind and your flying again. This time the Quantum kite was upside down as I pulled on my right lanyard to flip it up, tip of kite pointing up, I heard a snap, and saw the kite tip of wing collapse. I figured the rod had come out of the leading edge ferrule. Once I examined it , I was disappointed the ferrule had snapped in two. Done flying for the day. So once I got home e-mailed Prizm kites about my misfortune, they promptly emailed me back and sent me a new ferrule for free. Maybe a bad part , but once I get the part in I will try again. So as of now 4 stars.
Fast and fun. Sturdy. Well built. Great color schemes. Should have bought two of them!
