In the past, a head-heavy construction increased power but reduced the speed of racquet handling.
Likewise, head-light constructions delivered speedy movement but decreased power.
For the first time, TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM successfully combines the contrasting characteristics of incredible power and lightning-fast racquet handling to deliver a powerful smash with the agility to respond to high-speed rallies.
NANOPREME is an original technology developed by YONEX to provide an ideal racquet material.
Carbon Nanotube (with unique characteristics produced by Nanoscience) is combined with epoxy resin to tightly bind carbon fibres. Together, they form an incredibly strong material construction.
NANOPREME delivers high repulsion and high strength to expand the performance capability of the racquet.
Head-heavy balance is vital to place maximum power on a smash.
The VOLTRIC Z-FORCE grips the shuttle on the string bed and transfers power more efficiently so that the shuttle retains power and weight deep into the opponent’s court.
VOLTRIC Z-FORCE increases power even further through the larger frame cross-section and improved stiffness.
Six metres from the initial impact, the shuttle was still traveling over 25km/h faster than a shot played with a conventional racquet.
A smash shot with this power and weight is hard for an opponent to counter.
In combination with our most efficient head-heavy balance, the VOLTRIC Z-FORCE frame has been made smaller to deliver the faster swing speed demanded by advanced players.
By reducing the drag caused by air resistance, the head-heavy feeling is reduced and racquet handling speed is increased.
A thinner shaft for greater flexibility is traditionally less stable, but a stiffer shaft with high stability can become fragile.
The VOLTRIC Z-FORCE shaft with NANOPREME combines flexibility and stability for ultimate performance.
The thinnest shaft in YONEX history, it still delivers exceptional flexibility and amplifies the energy of the swing.
