For 2019 we are updating our cruising laminate range with the introduction of CDX PRO. This new range consolidates the Contender US and European styles into a single collection of laminates engineered for durability and cruising performance. We have designed the CDX PRO range around a series of sub-assemblies using different weights of taffetas and a 500 denier polyester cross-ply. These sub-assemblies are combined one with another and a 6000 dpi polyester insertion to create a complimentary range of styles stepping up in weight and strength.

Ti02 in the adhesive adds to UV resistance and a robust anti-mildew additive provides advanced protection against mildew. We have also made a big improvement in the weight of the CDX PRO styles to make the fabrics more efficient in terms of strength to weight which will improve lower wind range performance and ease of handling (see the weight comparison chart on the facing page).

CDX PRO is available in white and a cool grey (February 2019) and is 56″ (142 cms) wide.
