The 7.0 Power Foil has exceeded expectations.
The 7.0 Power Foil is optimized for power and weight savings. The Power Foil is intended for sticky surfaces and heavier sailors who desire more lift. The Power Foil can be tuned from full to flat. It works on any surface.
This wing can fly its own weight in light wind.
The 7.0 Power Foil frame utilizes stiff and light weight carbon composite front tubes with the same aluminum boom and Y tubes that are standard to the 4.8 Skimbat and 5.5 Dacron frames. The 7.0 Power Foil frame has a longer Y tube and a boom extension at the nose joint with an adjustable X tube.
The 7.0 Power Foil sail is built at Ezzy Sails from the same scrim used to construct the 5.5 Speed 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.
Options include two cleats at the clew to rig laced reflex and outhaul.
