5.5 Speed Sail
The 5.5 Speed sail is designed specifically to fit the stiff light weight carbon composite front tubes which are an option to the standard frame. The sail can also be used with composite fiberglass front tubes, but it was designed to be used with the stiffer light weight carbon front tube upgrade frame.
The 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 fabric is lighter than mono film. The sail includes Dacron luff sleeves with Cordura® reenforced openings and chafe points, cam lock tip tensioners, three position reflex tensioner, and leach strap.
The 5.5 Speed sail features a reduced luff curve profile specifically designed to fit the stiffer front tubes. It can be tuned through a fairly wide range of foil shapes. The Speed sail is intended for riders who want to go fast. This sail is likely to be a better choice for ice or fast low drag surfaces.
