HSX-P a new Double Ripstop Sailcloth aimed squarely at the Cruising & Cruise Race Sailor
Bainbridge – the world’s oldest sailcloth manufacturer – is very proud to announce its very latest range of woven sailcloth, which maximises the advantages of a double ripstop in an all polyester construction.
HSX-P has been developed to expand the popular Bainbridge HSX range. From the outset the brief to the Bainbridge R&D team was to develop a sailcloth which offers a significant step-up from plain weave HSX, combined with the functional performance advantages of HSX-V. The 100% polyester construction of high tenacity fibres in this new sailcloth hits this target through design and the latest finishing techniques.
NEW HSX-P brings the proven advantages of a double ripstop woven polyester sailcloth to the Cruising/Cruise Race sailor. This new generation of sailcloth demonstrates the further advancement of Bainbridge’s unique specialist expertise in developing technical fabrics which optimise strength, performance and quality.
HSX-P has utilised the Bainbridge R&D team’s experience and knowledge developed during the creation of the widely acclaimed HSX-V Vectran® family of sailcloth. The finalised HSX-P range benefits from the shared knowledge and ongoing field testing of Bainbridge Ripstop fabrics.
