Performance Engineered for Radial Sails.

Contender Radian Range is the latest addition to the Contender line of woven sailcloth for radial applications. Radian stylesfeature technical constructions that balance high fiber denier, count and crimp to create a line of high performance warp oriented fabrics. Unlike some radial styles that sacrifice fill strenght and fabric durability for low warp strech, Radian fabrics use specially shaped fill yarns to create a strong and robus weave. Intended for performance applications, the Radian finish provides a very firm hand for maximum cloth stability, assuring a fast flying shape.

  • Excellent warp performances and shapeholding
  • Proven durability of woven polyester: high resitance to flex and fatigue, very good chafe resistance
  • Very good UV resistance
