The cylindrical fender is the most common fender shape. Built with stainless steel D-rings located at the top and a bottom strap, this fender can be positioned vertically or horizontally (Models C84 and larger will need to use a Long Side Cover to positioned horizontally). The Fendertex® cylindrical textile fender offers high abrasion resistance. They are ultralightweight, easy to handle, and can be deflated and folded to minimize storage space.
1 - Technical textile with low elasticity at the ends to compensate for the increase in air volume caused by high temperatures maintains a constant pressure of about 5.1 psi (350 mbh)
2 - Long side ring
3 - Highly elastic inner tube, water can be added to act as ballast for the fender
4 - A technical textile made from polyester with high abrasion resistance. Does not absorb salt, thus avoiding micro scratches on the hull. Easy to clean with water or in a standard washing machine.
5 - Retention strap to prevent deformation of the collar during compression
6 - Inflatable suspension collar with a maximum capacity of 1.5 tons of vertical tension
7 - Suspension strap is sewn into a cross for added strength
8 - 316 stainless steel D-ring

These are the greatest fenders I have ever owned. I could not be happier with the ease of use, lightweight and performance. Very happy and will be buying more.
We bought at first 1 Fendertex then 4 others then another 2 ! we have tested them in several applications, while we dock.And at the dock they do an amazing job of protecting the boat.
When sailing Storage is amazing , and to inflate litterally takes a few seconds to inflates.
Fendertex are fantastic ! Thank you PYI
Fender appears to be very well made. Expect it to last very well based on robust construction.
