Special Edition – Throwback
The perfect choice for first-time pilots, the Quantum’s 7-foot wingspan is big enough for serious pull and excitement and stable enough to make learning a snap. Impressive wind range, adjustable bridle, and practically indestructible carbon frame make it the kite you can learn with but never outgrow.
If it’s not broken don’t fix it? To heck with that – we gave the legendary Quantum a fun upgrade for 2020 anyway! The goal was to keep everything pilots love about the Quantum while adding even more flight performance, some sweet details to make it easier to use, and fun new graphics and colors just to freshen things up.
We’ve tweaked the wing shape to give it even better tracking and additional stability, making it easier to keep aloft in light winds without pro-level skills.
We’ve made a subtle change to the bridle geometry and added a super-quick, one-step bridle adjustment at the center T so it’s a cinch to set your kite for different winds.
We’ve upgraded the bag to a new design that lets you roll it up and clip to a belt loop while you fly – no more bags blowing down the beach in the wind. An external pouch for your lineset keeps it from getting tangled. In a hurry to get off the beach? A cleverly hidden extension sleeve pops out if you want to store your kite full-length without folding the leading edges.
The Quantum now features removable, color-coded line attachment clips, so you can just pop off the clips if you prefer to attach lines with an old-school Lark’s head knot.
Ready to replace a well-loved older Quantum? The Quantum 2.0 keeps the same frame geometry, carbon rods and fittings so it’s backward compatible – no new spare parts needed!
