Kitewing 5.5 Dacron
Rigid Frame Hand Held Wing
The Dacron 5.5 is a go to model for cruising, easy setup,
versatility, and value. The Dacron 5.5 frame comes with the same standard
fiberglass composite front tubes as the 4.8 wing. It can also be used in
combination with the carbon fiber frame option for lighter weight, less flex,
and a snappier feel.
The Dacron 5.5 sail is constructed from 3 oz. Dacron with
Cordura chafe patches, the same as other Kitewing sails. The Dacron sail is
about.11 kg. /4 oz. heavier than the light weight scrim sails built by Ezzy
The Dacron sail can be stowed on the frame. This is great on
windy days, or for quick sessions with minimal setup time.
Combined with the stiff and light weight carbon front tube
upgrade, the Dacron 5.5 can be tuned through the greatest range of any of the
5.5 sails. The 5.5 Dacron has a reinforced window similar to the scrim sails
which is designed to be more durable and less prone to damage.
The Dacron®5.5 is a light weight and durable sail with the
option to upgrade. Combined with the stiffer light weight carbon composite
front tubes the Dacron®5.5 is a great choice for any sailor who wants one wing
for every condition.
