► Designed for radial cut spinnakers
To produce for the world's finest spinnaker cloths, Contender Sailcloth works closely with their fiber producers and weavers. Thanks to this, close co-operation and constant consultation with sailors and sailmakers all over the world, we have built up an unrivalled knowledge and understanding of spinnaker cloth.
The exact balance of weight, stability, tear, strength, and breaking strain of Nylite and Maxilite cloths comes from the quality of the fibers, the weave, and the finish of their construction. Nylite and Maxilite spinnaker fabrics are impregnated with a durable melamine finish and developed with the quality-concscious cruising sailor in mind.
The choice of Nylite or Maxilite fabric is determined by the size of your yacht and the conditions in which you want to sail. Both types of fabric have excellent resistance to tearing and good stretch resistance and they will give you many years of great sailing performance.
*Fluorescent colours are more sensitive to UV and therefore not recommended for offshore and transoceanic sailing.
