Southampton-based sailcloth manufacturer, Bainbridge, has unveiled its latest range of woven sailcloth with a double ripstop in an all-polyester construction.
HSX-P is the newest addition to the Bainbridge HSX range and is aimed at the cruising and cruise race sectors. The new sailcloth builds on the HSX-V Vectran family and is said to be highly durable with a visually clear strength and performance advantage over traditional plain weave products.
What does this mean for the sailmaker?
HSX-P is marketed as a competitively priced, performance product that is easy to work and handle, enabling the production of high-quality finished sails. Bainbridge says that its HSX-P enables more differentiation in the market enabling the sailmaker to sell a finished product with clear performance and a quality premium.
