HEAD is at the forefront of technology and innovates constantly. Below are the technologies used by HEAD for its padel products:
Graphene: "the strongest and lightest material in the world".
Discovered in 2004, graphene consists of a simple two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms. 200 has a higher breaking strength than steel, making it ideal for new HEAD tennis racket frames with exceptional qualities.
Graphene technology is the first to allow an ideal redistribution of weight in HEAD snowshoes. Thanks to the presence of Graphene in the handle, it is possible to reduce the weight in the central part of the paddle racket. Instead, the weight is transferred from the handle towards the tip and handle of the racket, areas where it performs a more important function. This unique construction provides players with unprecedented maneuverability and increased momentum. In other words, it is much easier to give a momentum to a racket with Graphene, allowing much more powerful shots. Faced with this technology, your opponents will have a hard time!
- Increases the SWING WEIGHTThe weight transferred to the head of the head and the handle improves maneuverability and increases the moment of inertia of the racket.
- INTEGRATION OF GRAPHENEIntegrated with the handle of the racket, the graphene improves the stability and redistributes the weight of ideal way.
- MORE POWER With this optimized redistribution of weight in the racket, players generate more kinetic energy when they hit the ball. Less effort, but more power!
Other technologies integrated with paddle rackets HEAD
- It is an elastomer placed between the frame and the rubber, around the entire frame, which amplifies the interaction between the two parts bringing more comfort and a best sweetspot.
It is a circular “CHIP” hole pattern with variable size positioned and combined with respect to the C-Ring technologist, for a rigidity adapted to the strike zone and a more forgiving racquet.
Placed above the frame, it protected of the scratch and blows. The Anti Shock Skin makes the racket stand up like no other to blows and rubbing (walls and floors).
The Antishock Skin technology is therefore used as a second skin, a polymer protection for a racket more resistant in time against shocks and scratches.
Microscopic vision of the appearance of the cells of the gum:
This tubular, built from premodeled carbon layers, was designed with the different zones of the frame to give more or less rigidity / flexion to each zone as needed. With this form, the frame is rigid in areas where there is more torsion and is flexible in areas where there is a need for a larger sweetspot.
Innegra technology consists of a tough, tough fiber material combined as an ultra light and rigid composite hybrid compound. Innegra increases frame stability and improves shock absorption for more control. Innegra: it is on average 17% of vibrations in less which thus improves the stability.
