5.5 Full Sail
New this year, the
5.5 Full Kitewing features the latest Scrim Sail technology! The new x-ply material utilizes
Spectra yarn. Its braided with a polyester filament, in a triaxle grid and the
results are astonishing. Due to the
wider grid pattern, this material weighs less than previous x-ply film, thus reducing
the sails’ overall weight.
5.5 Full sail is the replacement for the old 5.5 monofilm sail this year. The 5.5 Full scrim
sail is approximately.34 kg./12 oz lighter than the older mono film sail.
The 5.5 Full sail is constructed from a light weight scrim fabric at Ezzy
Sails. The “scrim” fabric is closely woven polyester scrim and X ply laminated
on both sides with clear film. The sail includes Dacron®luff sleeves with
Cordura reinforced openings and chafe points, cam lock tip tensioners, three
position reflex tensioner, and leach strap.
5.5 Full sail is an option forthose who want to replace the Kitewing
5.5 mono film sail. It is the same sail cut as the older 5.5 mono sails such as
the 5.5 Rage, Plus and Race.
The 5.5 is currently the largest wing available. Smaller sizes include the 4.8
Skimbat and the 4.0 Falcon. Sizing depends on a lot of factors including
desired use, bodyweight, surface resistance & average wind speeds.
