The new Razor V1.1 has been developed for advanced players with an offensive game. By shifting the balance point to make the racket head-heavy and stiffening up the shaft, the racket delivers a performance ideally suited for an offensive player. This set up delivers faster racket head speed and a more powerful stroke which is complimented with the sharp control and feel delivered by the Razor Guided Technology.
RAZOR V1.1 TECHNOLOGY FEATURES:
JAPANESE HM CARBON:
Sourced from Japan, Japanese Hi Modulus [HM]Carbon is the highest specification carbon available on the market ensuring your Carlton frame will outperform all other construction materials for frame response and stability.
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.
RAZOR GUIDED TECHONOLOGY:
Softening the impact of the shuttle on the string bed to improve touch and feel has traditionally been delivered through softening the grommets at 3 and 9 o' clock. Tasked with improving control by over 50%, we have thrown away the rule book creating a revolutionary frame profile. The grommetless construction at 3 and 9 o' clock ensures direct contact between the cross strings and the racket frame. The increased synergy between the two racket elements ensures razor sharp racket control and feedback.
Bio-mechanical analysis of the overhead badminton swing highlights two distinct aerodynamic directions evident during the swing phase.
Carlton's Bi-Axial Dynamic frame develops more efficient aerodynamics in both directions compared to competitor frames.
This increased efficiency is delivered through a cross sectional frame profile that is more aerodynamic than competitor frames. During development, over 80% of players stated the new Bi-Axial frame profile delivered increased swing speed.
By combining the larger sweet spot size (resulting from the isometric geometry) and the increased air speed and control (created by the smaller conventional/Circometric geometry) within the same head shape, the new Optimetric head geometry delivers both power, airspeed and control in one frame.

Using a matrix structure, Carlton has re-engineered the end cap to reduce its weight by 28% contributing to overall enhanced playability.
