The all new Kinesis racket has rewritten the rule books with its revolutionary vortex shedding frame geometry. The Kinesis is ideal for advanced players seeking control by combining a lightweight, even balanced frame with a medium flex shaft. The racket has been engineered with a 90° twist at 2,5,7 & 10 o'clock positions to reduce aerodynamic drag resulting in improved head speed and maneuverability. In addition, Micro Grommets keep the strings rigidly in place to allow pin-point accuracy along with enhanced power. KINESIS TECHNOLOGY FEATURES: CONSTRUCTION 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. HEAD VORTEX GEOMETRY: When analyzing the Bio-mechanics of badminton shot making, it is possible to see the racket rotate fluidly through the air. To execute perfect technique it is important that the racket works with the mechanics of your body and not against you.
Conventional rackets are only aerodynamic within a single plane meaning for many phases of the stroke the racket is aerodynamically inefficient leading to slower racket head speeds and instability. The Kinesis features a unique Vortex shedding frame geometry providing a twisted aerodynamic profile in the hoop reflexively tracing the bio-mechanics of your stroke increasing racket head speed and maneuverability. Combined with the control enhancing Micro grommet system the Kinesis delivers a superior aerodynamic package that allows the racket to shred faster through the air for more penetrating shots. MICRO GROMMETS: Micro grommets and pocket grooves provide more touch and control feeling whilst also reducing aerodynamic drag. Micro grommets have tapered edges rather than the conventional circular grommet shape resulting in a tighter fit improving shuttle feedback and control. OPTIMETRIC HEAD: 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. HANDLE 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.
