The 6th-Generation EZONE: Powerful with a Plush Feel

Date
06 January 2020

Yonex Co., Ltd. is proud to announce the launch of the 6th-generation EZONE racquet on Jan. 18, 2020. With a focus on easy power and unmatched comfort, the EZONE series features an ISOMETRICTM shape with the largest sweet spot1 in Yonex history and was developed for players of all levels.

ISOMETRICTM technology, pioneered by Yonex since 1980, denotes the square shape of the racquet head, an evolutionary breakthrough technology in tennis racquet design used to improve effective hitting area.

The EZONE is able to achieve power and comfort through a precise frame design that is wider at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions, along with new cross sections. By varying the angles of the aero-shaped frame, the frame has a plush, more comfortable feel at impact. Also contributing to comfort, Vibration Dampening Mesh (VDM) is wrapped around the graphite within the grip to filter unwanted vibration.

Liner Tech is incorporated throughout the racquet to optimize power and control. By drilling straight into the frame’s structure, string is elongated and rests flush against the grommets.

This unique approach and new string pattern results in the center being denser for added control, while the outer areas are wider for more power and comfort.

A first in the sporting goods industry, M40X2 - high strength, high elastic graphite - is added in the throat to improve frame stability and fle­x.

The desirable combination of power and flex with a plush feel is achieved, resulting in 2.5% more ball speed and 7.9% more shock absorption1.

Two-time Grand Slam Champion Naomi Osaka (JPN) and Nick Kyrgios (AUS) will debut the EZONE in early-January to begin their 2020 season.
