Given a pointed type A, the sequence of iterated suspensions of A

  A   Σ¹A   Σ²A   Σ³A   ...

defines a prespectrum Σ^∞A that we call the suspension prespectrum of A. Its structure map is defined degreewise by the identity

  Σⁿ⁺¹A = Σⁿ⁺¹A   ↝   ΣⁿA →∗ ΩΣⁿ⁺¹A

Note: Even though the suspension 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.
