Premium High / Low Aspect

Cloth more specifically engineered for particular rig configurations

Our High and Low Aspect fabrics are premium quality constructions intended for the sailor who demands the best. High tenacity fibers are combined in very dense weaves to create fabrics that have low elongation, high strength, and long term recovery. Bias stability is achieved by maximizing the cross-over points in these tightly woven constructions and finishing with the proven Polypreg process. Sails made with High and Low Aspect premium cloth will provide years of service over a wide working range of conditions. These two fabric ranges offer constructions that will meet the need of most any rig size or headsail configuration for long wearing and shape holding sails. Designed for cross-cut applications, High and Low aspect premium wovens are the perfect choice for quality minded cruisers.
