Fibercon® Pro Radial

Download brochure

Developed for the specific requirements of radial or vertically cut sails

Fibercon® Pro cloths are woven to a very high density and engineered to match the specific loads of the various rigs used in yachts all over the world. They have the high UV endurance and high density weave of our entire Fibercon® range and so ensure that your sail will have an excellent lifespan. 

Fibercon® Pro Radial was developed for the specific requirements of radial or vertically cut sails. Our advanced weaving techniques and unique Fibercon® yarns have enabled us to produce a range of woven fabrics that meet this particular challenge.

 These fabrics are available in a wide range of weights to suit many different applications. Different weights can even be combined within the same sail, if the sailmaker chooses, to match the fabric content to the loading of a particular area of the sail. The finishing of our Fibercon® fabrics is geared to your cruising needs or racing aspirations, and every production process is carefully overseen so that you receive a consistent quality of sail.

We recommend a medium or firm Polypreg finish for our Fibercon® Pro cloth. The medium Polypreg finish is optimised for ease of handling, and the firm Polypreg finish for the diagonal stability needed in more performance oriented sails.
