This racket has a conventional/circometric head shape which provides a compact hitting area for greater control, touch and feel. This head shape combined with the direct fibre transfer system in the grip means the racket offers supreme touch and is ideal for players wanting tight control. Its even balance and medium flexibility all combine to make this racket perfect for players wanting to take their touch to the next game.
AIR BLADE FEATURES:
Nanopulse™ carbon construction features a unique nano resin that binds all the carbon fibres together during the production process to create an ultra consistent and stable construction with maximum molecular uniformity.
The result is a frame which is more stable on shuttle impact compared to standard carbon construction delivering greater control for noticeable performance enhancement.
XTREME TENSION FRAME:
Precision engineering and the utilization of the finest construction materials ensures your Carlton frame can accommodate 11% higher string tensions compared with competitor frames.
WIDE BODY FRAME PROFILE:
Utilizing a traditional wide body frame profile that is wider in the throat area than conventional frames, T joint torsional stiffness is increased ensuring deadly accuracy and perfect control with every shot.
Features a traditional oval shaped frame top section providing a compact hitting area for superior control, touch and feel. The smaller head geometry also delivers increased swing speed versus isometric frames.
TORSIONAL CONTROL SYSTEM:
By flattening the T-joint section, torsional twist is minimized on shuttle impact providing a stable platform improving shot accuracy and control.
STABILIZER TOP CAP:
By introducing 4 convex channels into the top cap, stiffness of the top cap is increased allowing for greater shot accuracy and control.
ULTRA LITE CAP:
Using a matrix structure, Carlton has re-engineered the end cap to reduce its weight by 28% contributing to overall enhanced playability.
