Silicone coated nylon: for the ambitious yachtman who demands best performance

Dynakote 70 and 75 are high performance spinnaker fabrics with high stability, low weight, and zero porosity that have the same construction and polyurethane based coating as Superkote 70 and 75.

The exclusive Dynakote finish adds a Nano surface coating to the fabric. The effect of the Nano finish is a very smooth slippery surface, which enables the fabric to slide effortless and without friction over itself and the rig. This allows for faster sets and gybes. Dynakote fabrics sheds water, so kites stay light and dry, maintaining their bias stability even in the toughest conditions.

*The color samples on display are non-binding. Depending on screen and printer settings, display may deviate from original to differing extent. Sample cards are available upon request.

**Please note that fluorescent colors are not colourfast. They fade faster than regular colors as a result of exposure to sunlight. These fluorescent dyes also tend to weaken the cloth and make it less tear-resistant. Given that this is the case, Contender does not recommend the use of fluorescent colors for cruising spinnakers.
