Like an irresistible lure, Prism Kite's EO (Expandable Object) box kites always attracts a crowd. The original brainchild of Phil McConnachie, internationally acclaimed Australian designer, the EO6 is a dynamic box kite that flys stable like a traditional single-liner, or (in low winds) tug on the line and they become playful tumblers with a fascinating range of tricks. Their intersecting elliptical planes are completely unique and eye-catching in the sky, and best of all there’s literally no assembly required. The expandable structure springs open with a built-in elastic as you remove it from its clasp. Just find a little wind, pop it open, and watch it soar and tumble as it climbs into the sky. Amazingly durable and easy to fly for all ages, the EO can also be flown in multiples on a single string for a spectacular show. The convenient, unique travel clasp holds 200 feet of Dacron line with winder (included). Folds flat to less than 1/2" thick for easy transport.

The unique folding clasp keeps the kite flat for storage and has a mesh pocket for your flying line. Open the clasp like a book and kite springs instantly into shape, ready for action. Just clip on your line and toss into the air for unforgettable fun. Quick-start flying instructions are printed permanently on the inside of the clasp. Makes a great gift.
The EO6 is one of the finest production kites we have seen in 25 years in this business. As kite designers ourselves, we know great work when we see it, and this time our Australian friend Phil McConnachie has out done himself. Though the EO6 looks fantastically complex, it is one of the easiest kites you will ever fly. Add in the fact that, in low winds it can become your magic tumbling gem in the sky, and the EO6 is simply brilliant.
Equally at home high in the sky, hanging in your living room, or displayed in a modern art museum, the Prism's EO6 is the perfect blend of form and function.
Though Prism makes this kite in three sizes, the EO6's ease of flight and wider wind range make it easily our top pick. It is also the least expensive. The EO6'S smaller size makes transporting it to your kite field a breeze. Playful tumbling moves and crazy yoyos are all within your grasp with this wonderful kite. All-in-all, the "6" is the best value in the EO line.
