Prism Tensor Power Kite


Available in 3 sizes with lines pre-attached and ready to fly, each kite comes in a stylish roomy backpack with well-illustrated flight manual.


Plenty of extra bag storage for Control Gear and included Stainless Steel Ground Stake in the zippered mesh side pockets.


Included Control System converts easily between Bar and Control Handles flight mode. Safety Leash and "Kite Killers" included.


Color-code flying line comes pre-attached in "Bar Mode". Convert to Handles by simply separating the bar at the machined Aluminum center joiner and insert two end fittings to make Quad Handles.

As with all sports equipment exposed to natural elements such as wind, sea water, dust, sand and sunlight, life expectancy varies. With heavy use in these conditions, Beamer kites can be expected to remain operationally effective for a minimum of 2 years. Of course, with moderate use and care, this time period can be lengthened considerably. To optimize performance, it is suggested that equipment be updated and/or replaced routinely.

Tensor 5.0 Built to paraglider standards from silicone coated nylon, features include; reinforced inlets, dirt-outs to easily remove sand from the cells, and stitched Dyneema bridles to reduce snags and hold optimum wing shape under load. Power Trim system allows 3 easy bridle settings to adjust power and performance in different winds. Flying lines are precision-measured and stretched Modulus Spectra for quick response and long life. Stainless ground stake and sheath to secure the kite, and a comprehensive, well-illustrated flight manual also included.
Though the smaller sizes are intended for strong winds and the larger sizes for light wind conditions, the operating range of each Tensor will largely depend on the flyers skill level with this type of kite.
 
Kite Boarding Getting started:- Whether flying for fun or Traction Kiting, the Beamer is a worthy Quad Line Foil. The 2.0 and 3.0 make great recreational kites, as well as good training sizes for beginners, or higher wind kites for experienced pilots. No matter what type of kite you use for Kite Traction, there are a number of things to remember when selecting the best size to start with. The Beamer to use will depend on the Surface; (Skis on snow or ice, Kite Buggy on soft or hard sand, grass or hard ground, or Kite Board on water), the Wind Speed; flyer Skill and Experience and flyer Weight. Whether the flyer is a novice or has a lot of Traction Kiting experience, the best choice is the smallest kite that will produce enough power to move. It is essential not to be overpowered, not just because it's obviously safer, but upwind travel will be easier and less power is easier to manage. A small to mid-size Beamer is ideal to get familiar with control on solid ground in modest steady wind. Once you are confident that you can control the kite, then progress to Kite Buggy, Skis or Kite Landboard.

Quad Handles or Bar:- We believe that Quad Handles give the most control over the kite. Handles give maximum maneuverability and can be used with a line between the top connection points for use with a harness. A Control Bar offers a simpler control system and for some fliers, an easier approach to Traction Kite flying. Handles can be used for all kite traction activities, whereas we would not recommend using a control bar for Kite Buggying.




These kites produce considerable pull and are not suitable for inexperienced flyers under age 16. Always learn to control the kites before attempting kite traction activities. Sensible saftey precautions should be followed when flying these kites and protective clothing, especially sturdy shoes and a helmet should always be worn when using them for traction. Read instructions and safety warnings in with every kite.
