Quick to rig, the Ezzy Lion is one of our favorite sails because it makes going fast no-hassle.
- Twin Cambers The Lion's twin cambers rotate effortlessly and can fit any mast built within the past 30 years.
- Narrow Sleeve The narrow sleeve doesn't fill with water which makes uphauling and water-starting a whole lot easier.
- Highest Tech Materials The Dyneema reinforced X-Ply and the Scrim-X are as light as monofilm, but they are exponentially more durable and have twice the UV longevity.
The Lion is a race sail stripped of everything that makes race sails difficult. The luff sleeve is narrow and easier to waterstart or uphaul than a wide sleeve that fills up with water. Like the previous Lion sails, the 2018 Lion rigs on all RDM and SDM masts. And, like all Ezzy Sails, the 2018 Lion is built to last.
Here’s the scenario: your mates are sailing race sails with wide-sleeves, cut-in clews, and monofilm panels. You show up with your new Lion. They take one glance at the Lion’s narrow mast sleeve and the non-monofilm panels, and they think they will sail circles around you. Now here’s the fun part: you line up with them on a reach, let them get a bit ahead, and then you sheet in. As the Lion accelerates, they will wonder what's happening, but it is only after you pass them—and they try to keep up with you but can’t—that they will be truly pissed off. Back on the beach, your deflated friends will be fuming with questions. How can a twin-cam, narrow-luffsleeve sail that looks bulletproof go so fast? And why doesn’t the Lion have a cut in clew like every other kind of cambered sail? First, you will explain that the Lion’s twin cambers rotate effortlessly and can fit any mast built within the past 30 years—for full effect, pause and condescendingly look at your friends as if they are the kind of sailor who might have a mast from the early 90’s—either RDM or SDM. You can also add that the narrow sleeve doesn’t fill up with water which makes uphauling and water-starting a whole lot easier than with a wider sleeve. Concerning the cut-in clew, or lack of, you can say that David Ezzy says a leech cut-in kills the low-end and stability of a sail. The more the lower leech moves, the more unstable the sail is. He wants an increasing tension from the head to the clew. Cutting the leech disturbs this important tension progression. Next, explain the materials. The Dyneema reinforced X- Ply and the Scrim-X are as light as monofilm, but they are exponentially more durable and have twice the UV longevity. To get them really jealous, show them the Lion’s calibrated rigging system. And explain all you do is downhaul until the gauge lines up with the mast. 100% accuracy every time you rig without any guesswork. No other cambered sail in the world has anything like it. Oh, and don’t forget to mention that every Lion is rigged, tuned, and inspected in the Ezzy factory. Piss off your mates.... get the Lion
