Fibercon sailcloth is woven with our exclusive Fibercon high tenacity and UV resistant yarn.
The production of polyester fibers has increasingly been outsourced to low cost countries where spinning companies no longer produce fiber to the quality and specifications necessary for weaving superior sailcloth. The trading name of these fibers has remained the same but the actual performance of the fibers has degraded dramatically.
As the leader in premium woven sailcloth, Contender has always realized that the fiber used in our cloth is as important as the weave and finish. We have always been in control of the weave and finish and now we have taken control over the quality of the fiber as well.
