2013 Blade Prime Kite Performance
The 5 struts design supports the high AR kite, maintaining torsional stiffness and minimizes canopy flatter to help utilize maximum power.
Turning Axis-Wingtip Power Turn
The Prime’s turn axis is fixed at the tip of the kite to produce maximum-power turn. This is ideal for stable full power freestyle maneuvers and those looking to fully utilize their kite’s maximum power potential.
The precise, efficient design of the bridle system boosts the support and performance of the LE, but does not compromise the direct feeling you would expect from a C kite.
The Prime’s formidable power profile intensifies the crisp, sharp and clean turns produced by the intricate airfoil design.
2013 Blade Prime Kite Construction
Moulded LE Guards
Molded LE guards are lighter, more aerodynamic, and effectively protect the leading edge from all your outrageous wipeouts.
Bridle Attachment Point
Internally constructed, the leading edge has twice as many reinforcement patches. That means LE impact loads and additional protection from the constant wear of abrasion to the ground.
Additional valve reinforcements were added to firmly fix the patch to the bladder. One from below and one from above. We also purposely designed a new bladder adhesive to suit the unique requirements of kite construction.
We know you like to ride hard. That’s why the Prime has 25% more Insignia Tape in the delicate areas surrounding the LE. You can be confident that this kite will endure even the toughest impacts.
Unique Dacron material used for the leading edge, struts and tips which is considerably lighter, but efficiently stronger - thanks to our tried-and-tested, innovative box threading design, which has a more rigid construction and allows for a tighter weave.
Teijin Techno Force
Our top of the line Techno Force canopy material has been a mainstay of our product line for 4 years and has proven to be superior to anything else on the market.
Mad 2 Air Flow System
The specially-designed valve pieces on the Trigger’s one-pump system are 100% foolproof. You’ll be pumped up and ready to strap on your board in no time!

2013 Blade Prime Kite Designer Q & A
What do you feel makes the Prime different from other freestyle kites?
When we began developing the Prime 5 years ago, we wanted to make a very unique kite in terms of delivery. We set out to make a freestyle kite that lets riders push the limits, build progression and increase performance. The point wasn’t to make a mid-level or expert level freestyle kite, but one that will still give you a rush on your 10th, 20th or 50th session and beyond. As you get better, you want a kite that progresses with you and that is exactly the Prime’s protocol.
What were the biggest challenges in designing the Prime?
Making a C kite with only 4 lines while trying to get maximum performance, superior stability and ultra-responsiveness isn’t easy. We always work on the very narrow leading edge and it took us a long time to develop a very unique bridle configuration that we can use on this one-of-a-kind kite. The bridle offers just enough support to the leading edge to make sure that the shape stays intact, but the length is absolutely minimal so you still get the maximum bar directness and intuitive responsiveness you’re looking for in a kite.
