Designed for long lasting cruising performance
Fibercon Hybrid “powered with Dyneema” is a new addition to the Contender Fibercon Pro range of performance woven sailcloths. Carefully designed with performance cruising yachts and long distance cruising in mind, Fibercon® Hybrid combines tremendous strength and durability in a woven fabric suited to today’s high-tech radial sails. With a radial panel layout and the weights available from the Fibercon® Hybrid range, your sailmaker can choose to combine different weights within the sail. Matching the fabric to the loading of a particular area of the sail in this way can make your sail lighter and more efficient.
Because it uses a woven construction and the incredibly durable Dyneema yarns, Fibercon® Hybrid has superb resistance to impact damage and wear and tear in use, and to the growth of unsightly mildew. The combination of high strength Dyneema yarns with our exclusive Fibercon polyester fibres has been engineered to take advantage of the properties of both components. It is finished with a special new Contender coating which is unique to this range of fabrics. The result is a super-durable, high performance cruising sailcloth which is much stronger than normal woven fabrics. Fibercon® Hybrid makes stable, long lasting and great looking radial sails. Fibercon® Hybrid powered with Dyneema fabrics are available in a range of weights which are suited to almost all popular performance cruising yachts and are ideal for custom projects.
