FROM PRISM:
Imagine a kite that glides magically on the lightest air currents, defying gravity with the lift of a high-performance sailplane and weighing less than 2 ounces. Toss it as a glider with no string attached, or soar through the sky with precise control just by pulling and releasing the line. The Zero G is a true canard-style aircraft, with the smaller wings facing forward in tethered and gliding flight. Unlike traditional kites, it will glide like a airplane when you release the line, making it incredibly easy for beginners and experts alike because it can't stall and fall out of the sky. Pull it up over your head and then slack the line to watch it glide as far as space allows, tantalizing you to skip out of work early on those light wind days.

Conceived in collaboration with celebrated Malaysian designer Ceewan, the Zero G concept was inspired by Reinhold Platz, chief designer for the Fokker Aircraft Company after WW1. Decades before the modern hang glider, he built and flew a full-scale canard-winged craft that folded up to carry on a bicycle. With small wings in front, the canard configuration allows a virtually stall-proof glider that will float eerily in a level attitude even when it's barely flying forward. A clever dynamic bridle adjusts the angle of the forward wings in flight according to the tension on the line, allowing the kite to behave as a kite under tension and a glider whenever the line is released.

With its tensioned fabric wing and minimalist structure, the Z-G is high-tech flying art that looks as good as it flies. Hang it on the wall when you're not flying and watch form and function dance together in this remarkable flying machine.

TOM’S NOTES:
With his Plutz kite series Leong Ceewan introduced the world to an entirely new class of gliding kites. With the Zero G Mark Reed at Prism Designs has taken what was already a refined design and pushed it to an entirely new level. Premium fit and finish, clean custom fittings and stunning graphics combine to form what is sure to be one our favorite new kites to come along in years.

Plutz-2 Found a Home - Windless Flying in Berkeley (03:09)
Here's a video of some "almost" zero wind flying at Caesar Chavez Park in Berkeley Marina, California. Went over, brought a Plutz-2 as a gift to a friend and just by some stroke of luck, there was literally no wind. I was surprised at the reception of this little one among the regulars and the passerbys there. Everyone was just entralled by the visual element and performance of this little glider.Beyond this, there is also some bonus footage towards the end of a custom Revolution Indoor Rev, which I must add, looks delectably delicious as usualLocation:Caesar Chavez ParkBerkeley Marina, CaliforniaKites:Plutz-2Revolution Custom Indoor RevArtiste:Explosions In The Skyhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Explosions_in_the_SkySong:From West TexasDate:22nd January 2011
