Product Technology

DUAL OPTIMUM SYSTEM

nanometric logo

NANOMETRIC* improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibres enabling us to take racquet shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60%* thinner than a conventional racquet whilst retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racquet with lightening head speed and control.

*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.

NANOMETRIC DR is a new carbon
material developed by Yonex based on
our unique NANOSCIENCE technology.
Created from a material originally
developed for next generation space
aviation by Toray Industries, Inc.,
this marks the first time it has been
used within the racquet industry. By
combining firm shuttle hold and high
repulsion, NANOMETRIC DR puts the
DUORA into a class of its own.

NANOMETRIC DR

The ISOMETRIC™ equalizes the length of the main and cross strings in the string-bed, enlarging the sweet spot for more consistent accuracy even on off-centre hits.

ISOMETRIC

The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes for a more high-performance stringing pattern.

NEW Grommet Pattern

The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.

SOLID FEEL CORE

Combines solid hitting feel and quick swing.

AERO+BOX Frame

‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.

NEW Built-in T-Joint

The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.

DUORA Grommet

The new DUORA Grommet design features 8 linked grommets made with differing thicknesses on either side of the frame. When hit on the box side, thicker and harder grommets on the aero side result in a stiffer string bed, ultimately increasing launch power on the shuttlecock.

HORIZONTAL A CONCEPT Logo(1)

 

YONEX has designed a new grommet pattern called the HORIZONTAL-A CONCEPT that has helped us create the smallest frame in our history. The pattern anchors 4 strings horizontally to allow greater flex in the string bed and to create an enlarged sweet spot at the top of the frame. So even off-centre shots can be powerful.

EXTRA SLIM SHAFT - THE THINNEST STRONGEST EVER PRODUCED BY YONEX

Cutting edge NANOMETRIC carbon technology is used to produce an ultra-thin, ultra-tough, aerodynamic shaft, created for a stronger and more intense shot.Extra Slim Shaft 2(1)

Frame construction provides fast swing and head-heavy balance

To balance the heavy racquet head, the frame has been made smaller to maintain the fast swing demanded by advanced players.

By reducing the drag caused by air resistance, the head-heavy feeling is reduced and racquet handling speed is increased.

 

 

 
Compact Frame(1)

A new composite material T-ANCHOR used in the T-joint helps reduce excess torque when hitting an off centre shot.
