The spheres Sⁿ define a prespectrum

  Sⁿ →∗ ΩSⁿ⁺¹

which we call the sphere prespectrum.

Note: Even though the sphere prespectrum is defined degreewise by the adjoint to the identity map, it is not in general a spectrum, as the transposing map of the loop-suspension adjunction does not generally send equivalences to equivalences.
