Performance Engineered for Radial Sails
Contender’s Radian™ range is the latest addition to the Contender line of woven sailcloth for radial applications. Radian™ styles feature technical constructions that balance high tenacity fiber denier, count, and crimp to create a line of high performance warp oriented fabrics. Unlike some radial styles that sacrifice fill strength and fabric durability for low warp stretch, Radian™ fabrics use specially shaped fill yarns to create a strong and robust weave. Intended for performance applications, the Radian™ finish provides a very firm hand for maximum cloth stability; assuring a fast flying shape.
Radian™ fabrics are perfect for the racer or racer-cruiser who does not want to sacrifice durability for performance.
* Exceptional shape-holding: Unprecedented stretch performance in the warp direction, while retaining excellent fill and bias properties
* Proven durability of woven polyester: High resistance to flex and fatigue, very good chafe resistance
* UV resistance: Very Good
