Prism's most affordable beginner sport kite is now even more fun to fly
Simple. Tough. Flies great. Keep it in the car, at the beach house, strapped to your bike… because you never know when you’ll get the urge to fly. We made the Jazz extra durable for beginners. It’s a zippy little wing, but stable and easy to control. When you crash, the Jazz can take the hits with a sturdy hybrid carbon/glass frame and Vectran reinforced nose.
Folds down to 26 inches. Totally packable. Flies in 5 mph up to a snortin’ 25 mph, but beware: when the breeze picks up it turns into a speed demon and you’ll need to be on your game to keep up!
Comes with polyester flying lines, winder, Equalizer adjustable flight straps and a detailed sport kite guide. Quick-start instructions are printed right on the sleeve where they can’t get lost.

What's the difference between the Jazz and the Nexus?
With a stiffer, lighter carbon fiber frame and a larger wing, the Nexus is a little easier to fly than the Jazz, especially in lighter winds. Its larger size also gives it more pull, sending feedback down the lines so you can feel the wind better as you control the kite. The Jazz has polyester lines, while the Nexus' low-stretch Dyneema lines are thinner and have lower stretch, for quicker response and less drag in lighter winds.
Can the Jazz do tricks?
Even though it's designed for novices, the Jazz can actually perform most freestyle tricks. However the small, responsive wing requires smaller, more accurate control motions than a larger sport kite, making it more challenging for beginners to learn advanced tricks with the Jazz.
How long does it take to learn?
Learning to fly a two line kite is like riding a bike; once you get the hang of it you never forget. In moderate, smooth wind, most people get basic control figured out in a half hour or so.
What happens if you crash?
Our beginner oriented sport kites are designed to take a beating as you learn how to avoid those unplanned landings. Intermediate and advanced designs use lighter weight, higher performance frames that can be easier to break, but allow finer control and a crisper feel in even the very lightest winds.
