Ezzy Elite 2016
Ezzy Elite - 4 Batten Wave
The Delta Quick Review: The Elite has become the pinnacle of Ezzy design with it being the only model to be updated every year.
Over the last few years the Elite has also taken over from Ezzy's 5 batten models, like the Zeta and TIger, to become our best selling sail. It has Ezzy's trademark, deep seam-shaping, to keep the foil rigid and provide power and stability all at once. Yet with only four battens, the extensive use of high tech materials, and a draft placed well forward in the sail the Elite has a light manageable feel. Lighter than you'd ever expect for how well built the sail is, and how much power it can generate.
The downside of seam-shaping is a slightly more noticeable rotation than flatter designs. Yet for riders who fall in love with Ezzy's they see the extra power seam-shaping gives you through gybes, and bottom-turns as a worthwhile trade off. Looking at riders like Graham Ezzy and Kevin Pritchard, it's obvious that once you are comfortable on the sail there's no limit to what it's capable of.
