Description

The Prism is a stripped down racing compass.

Class legal anywhere an electronic compass is legal, the Prism provides superior accuracy, and a massive display all in an ultralight, compact package.

"The Velocitec Prism is so super clear that I can't see myself sailing an asymmetric without one. We noticed that due to its next generation 3-axis magnetometer it needed much less damping and therefore gave a quicker response to changes in direction than any other electronic compass I have used before." Steve Cockerill

LIGHTWEIGHT

At a mere 137 g (4.8 oz) it is one of the lightest racing compasses.

MASSIVE DIGITS

The Prism’s sunlight-readable, high-contrast LCD screen features 29.8mm (1.1”) tall digits in a font that’s optimised for readability. This means that if your boat’s under 40ft long you’ll be able to mount the Prism on your mast and read it easily from anywhere in the cockpit, even if you don’t have perfect vision.

ULTRA-WIDE VIEWING ANGLE

With 250° of visibility the Prism’s LCD's can be easily read from the helm to the trapeze wire.

FLEXIBLE & SECURE MOUNTING

The Prism mounts to your boat via the slide-in cradle. The Prism Cradle can be mounted to a wide array of brackets, directly to a mast using the centreline holes and the Mast Bracket Hardware Kit, or directly to a bulkhead. We even included recesses in the cradle in case you need to lash your compass in place.
