Dacron®5.5 is a go to model for cruising, easy set up, 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

Dacron®sail is about.11 kg. /4 oz. heavier than the light weight scrim
sails built by Ezzy Sails.

for quick sessions with minimal setuptime.

can be tuned through the greatest range of any of the 5.5 sails. The 5.5
Dacron®has a re enforced window similar to the scrim sails which is
designed to be more durable and less prone to damage.
