2017 Interior Fabrics/Materials

I am in the process of upgrading to a 2017 X23 and have selected the Jet Black cool touch as my third base. I was wondering if anyone out there has any experience with this color and material. I am wondering if it lives up to its name from a temperature standpoint and how it cleans/wears? I have a severe case of MCOCD and I don't want to go crazy trying to keep it clean and in a state of good repair.

I have attached a pic of what the inside will look like. I have changed the main base to the lighter grey from what is in the pic.


Thanks in advance for any help on this.

if your MCOCD is severe I would stay away from black.

I agree. This seems to be the best color options that the whole family can agree on. I am hoping for some positive reviews...

New material is sweet. You're in Canada, black will be fine!

I think the black looks like it doesn't belong in that build. Jmo.

If you want to incorporate the black use the welt for that. Again jmo

Thanks for the suggestion. Ideally I would have liked to use the Kahuna blue on base 2 and 3 but in real life it looks like an Easter egg blue. Great color in the flake but the interior would be tough to look at if there was too much of it; imo. Kahuna blue doesn't seem to be as versatile as jet blue, or the old med blue. Thanks again for the ideas...I am always open to them.

I doubt that its enough black to really make a difference as far as being too hot, except for chilling out max and relaxing all cool on the sundeck but even then, the technology works well enough to not burn you like older fabrics could (even in whites...). I like the sharp contrast it gives and connecting the color pallette of the hull to the interior. Sunscreen on bodies rubbing on it may be a PITA but you can wipe it clean fast. Run with it.

then i would run two colors only, forego black and add slate or grey as base 2 & 3.

I just think the harsh contrast from easter bunny blue to black will clash in real life - it clashes in the pic too much for me anyway. FWIW.

I was told (no experience here) that the black is only 8-9 degrees hotter. I have to call BS as I've sat on the rayo white and rayo flint and there was more than an 8 degree difference in temp. I'd stay away from the black.
