Ullman Sails New Line: FiberPath Sport
For smaller boats that want load path TechnologyTue, 10th Nov 2009
By Chuck Skewes
The new line of the highly successful FiberPath line from Ullman Sails is FiberPath Sport. Using load path
The FiberPath Sport line cost about 20% less than the FiberPath GP line that uses Technora load path and Technora Scrim. FiberPath Sport Twaron load path yarns are gold in color similar to Kevlar. The Sport is a great alternative to Kevlar paneled sails because it is similar in price and sailors get the performance of FiberPath on the smaller boats without increasing their budgets. The size limit is due to the Polyester scrims, larger boats need more off thread line load resistance than the lighter smaller boats.
Ullman Sails is proud to offer this new product to yacht racers around the world starting in December of 2009. Look for Ullman Sails at the Seattle Boat Show this January where we will be displaying the new FiberPath Sport.
