Ezzy's go-to flat water sail, the Cheetah has a soft, locked-in race feel. Camless and easy to rig, the Cheetah’s deep foil provides power and speed. When we freeride, we want to go fast, nail 100% of our jibes, and rocket into the air if a ramp appears. This is the easy freedom that inspired the Cheetah, and what the Cheetah delivers. The Cheetah is pure freeride but can hold its own against any race sail. The forgiving, soft feel makes the Cheetah a dream to gybe. The Cheetah rigs on all RDM and SDM masts. And, like all Ezzy Sails, the Cheetah is built to last. $729
NEW FEATURES FOR 2016!
New Material = Lighter, Softer, More Maneuverable A lighter scrim not only reduces the Cheetah's weight but also makes the sail softer, so it glides through lulls and maneuvers effortlessly. Also for 2016, the 6.0, 6.5, and 7.0 have 6 battens instead of 7, making the smaller sails feel lighter and softer.
Flatter Shape Above the Boom = More Control The profile above the boom is flatter to give the Cheetah more control when the wind picks up.
Smoother Twist = Faster The batten spacing is more progressive, which means that the battens are closer to each other nearer to the head of the sail. This creates a smoother twist in the sail's profile, which translates to more constant power, more control, and a higher top speed.
How To Choose The Perfect Mast Combination For Your Quiver:
Pick the top and bottom that fits the sail you use the most.
Use a longer top for your bigger sail.
Use a shorter bottom for your smaller sail.

The Ezzy Hookipa Mast
Ezzy Sails work great with the Ezzy Mast system, but also work with a variety of other brand masts (RDM and regular diameter). You could contact your mast maker and see if the bend of your non-Ezzy mast is compliant.
Ezzy mast bend curves are tip: 75% to 79% and base: 62% to 65%
Note: this is not carbon content. This is percentage bend relative to the midpoint bend.
