This is the latest and highest quality carbon fibre Black Knight uses. It incorporates 16,000 fibre filaments to produce the strongest graphite to date. The benefit is the ability to withstand high tension stringing without sacrificing the structural integrity of the frame.
Reacting to the shock of impact with the ball, BrainWeave stiffens progressively and enhances the frames reaction and recovery as it transfers energy to the projectile. The harder the hit, the greater the change in the BrainWeave. However, the material recovers almost instantly, returning to its normal state.
In spite of the recent popularity of complementary materials such as Titanium, Beryllium and BrainWeave, the type and quality of the Graphite is the most important material factor in the features and performance of higher range racquets. The nature and mix of the graphite fibres will determine strength, torque, flex, weight, vibration dampening and response.
