Comparable Cloths Combined For Your Convenience

Contender Fibercon Pro Radial

Fibercon® Pro Radial from Contender was designed to meet the needs of radial cut sails. The unique yarns and weaving techniques produce a line of sailcloth with high UV survival with a superb duration period. Because they are produced in a wide range of weights, they can be used in a wide range of sail sizes. In fact, different weights can be incorporated into the same sail to accommodate its particular load needs. For sails that are more performance oriented, we recommend a firm Polypreg finish. This will offer greater stability. The medium Polypreg finish will give better handling.

Challenge Sailcloth Warp Drive

For many years, the sailing industry has tried to come up with a strong cloth that lies between medium and heavy weight for taking care of tri-Radial sails. Customarily, tri-radial sails were only possible through the use of membrane cloth, because it was very difficult to weave a warp-oriented cloth. Challenge Sailcloth invented Warp-Drive which is made up through the process of weaving straight warp yarns in heavy fabrics. This cloth is a great cloth for a sailor looking for a longer lasting shape, and more performance over traditional cross cut sails without the expense of a laminate! This cloth offers easy to handle material in a radial construction with the bonus of being mildew resistant! *Extremely Limited Availability*
