Today�s badminton places extreme demands on badminton racquets � as the game steadily becomes faster and more powerful, players are demanding higher string tensions and placing increasing stresses on racquets. Extreme demands require the exceptional racquets of the Black Knight Vortex series.
The Vortex series combines today�s most advanced carbon materials with two structural features that are new to badminton:
- The Power Matrix externally reinforces the frame and acts as a spring to improve frame recovery following power shots such as smashes.
- Xtension Geometry architecture - a unique triple arch at the most stressed part of the frame, protecting the frame against high tension compression.
With the Vortex series, Black Knight has created a frame structure that resists compression and distortion due to high tension and high power play, and further increases racquet response by reducing frame recovery time � the time that it takes a frame to return to its natural form after impact with a shuttle.
