TOKYO, Japan ― Lightning strikes with the brand new NANOFLARE 1000. Uncharted speeds became reality with the realization of this new flagship racquet. The NANOFLARE 1000 is designed with the motif of a column of light, a design expressing the speed and power of a launched shuttle. The NANOFLARE 1000 is set to see a worldwide launch of June 16, 2023.
The NANOFLARE 1000 series is designed for players looking for additional shot and swing speed with agile maneuverability. The NANOFLARE 1000’s new Wide Profile Frame paired with the Sonic Flare System generates high repulsion on impact while reducing air resistance.
For more advanced players, the NANOFLARE 1000 Z and TOUR designs combine the Wide Profile Frame with an aero shape and compact frame to create the AERO COMPACT Frame. This new frame improves repulsion even further. For the advanced models, high modulus graphite materials are implemented on the top and bottom of the frame along with a SPEED-ASSIST BUMPER at the base of the frame. This reduces frame warp and improves overall repulsion performance.
The new NANOFLARE 1000 is being used on court now in the hands of Rio Olympic gold medalist, Carolina Marin (ESP), 2022 All England silver medalist, Lakshya Sen (IND), and 2022 French Open champion, He Bing Jiao (CHN). The racquets are scheduled for a global launch on June 16th, 2023, in four different models, Z, TOUR, GAME and PLAY – each developed with the same performance concept but with variations in materials used.
Sonic Flare System
The Sonic Flare System is built through a careful combination of high modulus graphite at the tip of the frame, and a strong yet elastic graphite, at the base of the frame. These graphite materials provide high repulsion for maximum shuttle acceleration, but the carefully calculated placement, volume and combination of the graphite materials also deliver stability and control.
Enhanced Sonic Flare System
The Enhanced Sonic Flare System is built through a careful combination of high modulus graphite, EX-HYPER MG, at the tip of the frame, and a strong yet elastic graphite, M40X, at the base of the frame. These graphite materials provide high repulsion for maximum shuttle acceleration, but the carefully calculated placement, volume and combination of the graphite materials also deliver stability and control.
SPEED- ASSIST BUMPER
The SPEED-ASSIST BUMPER is a connected grommet containing highly rigid material that is resistant to warping. They are attached to the lower part of the frame to reduce frame warp and improve repulsion performance.
Wide Profile Frame (NF 1000 GAME, NF 1000 PLAY)
NANOFLARE's characteristic wide frame and aero shape with sharp edges reduce frame warp during swing, improving repulsion and follow through.
AERO COMPACT Frame (NF 1000 Z, NF 1000 Tour)
(Wide Profile Frame + Compact Frame Shape＝AERO COMPACT Frame)
The NANOFLARE 1000's unique frame design combines a wide frame with an AERO shape and compact frame to improve repulsion while reducing air resistance.
*Compact Frame Shape: By reducing the frame area, power is concentrated on the sweet spot, improving repulsion, and reducing air resistance at swing.
