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.

2017 sees the rotation become less noticeable with the addition of a Dacron luff panel that softens up the sail. As a bonus the Dacron luff panel also makes rigging a bit more simple, as when inserting the mast the sail can now fold in the boom area without damaging the cloth.

 

Manufacturer's Info:

Every year, for over 30 years, David Ezzy worries about what he can do to improve his sails. He describes sail design as crawling around a pitch black room, trying to figure out what the furniture looks like - a painfully slow process, requiring patience and science.

For 2017, the Elite has gone through some fundamental improvements. The new sail inspires us to sail better and to rig up quicker to get more time on the water. The new luff panel makes the Elite more maneuverable without sacrificing overall performance. The biggest change though, is perhaps the new construction process, with makes the Elite feel lighter, allowing it to plane more quickly.

The Elite's philosophy is to be the perfect all-around sail - we use the Elite for flatwater fun to bump-n-jump to high-performance onshore to radical down-the-line. It's our go-to sail, so we need it to be easy. The wide wind range allows us to carry fewer sails which makes packing the car less of a headache. And the calibrated rigging system means we can have perfectly accurate tuning in seconds so we can spend less time rigging and more time on the water.
