Chikara nylon? on 08/04/2011 04:34:24 MDT Print View

Has anyone had any experience with Chikara Nylon? Someone mentioned it on another forum and I can't find a lot of information about it other than it seems popular for kites. The weight is comparable to Shield silnylon so if only I could find some info on HH it could be a good substitute for us on the other side of the pond.

It seems to be a Toray fabric. A quick Google suggested it might be PU/Sil coated. Whilst Googling, the 'Skysilk' fabric (33gm2) used on paragliders seemed interesting.
