Prism Mentor 2.5 Trainer
Water relaunchable power kite with three-line bar control for land, snow or water.
What can you do with the power of the wind? The Mentor delivers high performance power that’s easy to control and incredibly versatile. Pilot a kite buggy, a land board, a paddleboard, or just lay tracks on the beach with the soles of your feet. It’s a great intro to traction kiting without the complexity and expense of four line control. With one-way air inlet valves and leading edge profile supports the wing maintains its internal pressure and 3D shape for smooth, forgiving control even in light or gusty winds.
Three-line control lets you instantly put the kite in reverse and back it to the ground or water for easy relaunch without a helper. If you crash on water the kite will happily float while you recover. That means you can fly safely on narrow beaches where your wind window is over the water, or jump in and play with body dragging, paddleboarding or all kinds of other wet fun. The third line with quick-release leash also provides a simple and effective safety system- just let go of the bar to instantly de-power if things get out of hand.
Comes ready to fly with everything you need (except wind): low-stretch Dyneema lines, control bar and safety system, easy-to-pack compression bag, even a stainless ground stake to secure the rig when you need a break. Beautifully crafted by the kite experts at Prism Designs. With 25 years in flight, we’re committed to sharing the joy of kites with exquisitely designed, long-lasting products and all the info and support you need to have a blast in the wind.
