We made no compromises during the design of the Hexagon fabric styles, they were to be equally suitable for both racing and cruising. Double coated fabrics for major durability of their "zero porosity". Superior tear strength both with dry and wet fabric. Maximum resin grip to the fabric substrate, resistant to washing in salt water. Moderate material suppleness suitable for any wave conditions and any apparent wind angle. Turning Hexagon in to sails is easy thanks to its inherent flatness and zero porosity. Easy to glue and paint.
