Transportation is only one of the many vertical markets Enduratex serves and they are accustomed to serving the motorcycle market with innovative vinyl solutions, but Xtreme Seating is their latest creation.

"In 2010, we developed the Xtreme Seating collection for the active, outdoor extreme sports enthusiast," said Jeff Post, VP of CGPC America. "The rigors of extreme sports call for specially designed and constructed materials and we are delighted by the positive response to the Xtreme Seating launch," he added.

Xtreme Seating comes in three constructions: Rapper, Rapper Extreme and Slip Stop. "Rapper and Rapper Extreme are engineered with an exclusive stretch characteristic which enables the fabric to hug contours and makes it easy to cover. Slip Stop, is top-coated with an anti-slip finish," added Post. "In the minds of motorcycle enthusiasts, Slip Stop in intended to be the tops." .

The Rapper, Rapper Extreme and Slip Stop products are available through select Enduratex distributors.
