Indonesian Badminton Duo Clinches World No.1 Ranking After Yonex All England Win

Two of the newest members of Team Yonex, Indonesian men’s doubles pair Marcus Fernaldi Gideon (VOLTRIC 70 E-tunePOWER CUSHION 65) and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo (ARCSABER 11POWER CUSHION AERUS 2 MENS) triumphed over their Chinese rivals to win their first title at the tournament. Only weeks before the tournament began, the newly ranked No.1 pair made the switch to Yonex’s Voltric 70 E-tune and Arcsaber 11 racquets.

Gideon’s Voltric 70 E-tune features a new TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM which successfully combines the contrasting characteristics of exceptional power and great handling. Yonex developed a racquet that achieves the combination of heavy smashes and speedy racquet handling.

Sukamuljo’s Arcsaber 11 features NEO CS CARBON NANOTUBE and SONIC METAL which provides added grip to the shuttlecock and increases one’s ability to deliver high repulsion, rapid-fire returns. 

Gideon and Sukamuljo had a great week at the world renowned Yonex All England tournament with their new Yonex racquets allowing them to win all but one of their matches in straight games. The No.5 seeded Indonesians faced the No.6 Chinese pair of Li Junhui and Liu Yuchen in the pivotal final match, where the Yonex players and their powerful and speedy Voltric and Arcsaber racquets proved to dominate.
