Superlite / Superkote
Since 1995 the winners of the Americas Cup have always chosen the superior quality of Contender spinnaker cloth for their downwind sails. This is also the case with the winner of the most recent Volvo Ocean Race!
To produce cloths of this standard, Contender works closely with their fibre producers, weavers and the outstanding German finishing company KBC. Thanks to this close co-operation and constant consultation with sailors and sailmakers all over the world, we have built up an unrivalled knowledge and understanding of spinnaker cloth.
The Superlite, Superkote and Dynakote series together constitute a complete range of spinnaker fabrics that contains the right cloth for every type of spinnaker.

COLOR RANGE* **
*The color samples on display are non-binding. Depending on screen and printer settings, display may deviate from original to differing extent. Sample cards are available upon request.
**Please note that fluorescent colors are not colourfast. They fade faster than regular colors as a result of exposure to sunlight. These fluorescent dyes also tend to weaken the cloth and make it less tear-resistant. Given that this is the case, Contender does not recommend the use of fluorescent colors for cruising spinnakers.
