Head Squash Racquet Technology
HEAD squash equipment supports you to perform on the highest level. Head's contribution to your best performance are high technology systems like Youtek and Innegra. Read more about it below!
New for 2015 - GRAPHENE XT, a new generation of HEAD racquets. HEAD inserted the world’s strongest and lightest material in an even better way to provide you with optimal weight distribution for a faster swing and more power.
New for 2015 - With the New addition of Graphene XT the beam width has been reduced down to 16mm from the traditional width of 20mm.
New for 2013 - Discovered in 2004, Graphene consists of a single two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms. This material has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel, which makes it the ultimate substance for creating new HEAD squash racquet frames with exceptional properties. Graphene technology allows for the first time an optimal redistribution of weight in HEAD racquets.
New for 2011 - InnegraTM is today the worlds lightest high performance fibre. Its extreme toughness together with HEAD's advanced carbon composite technology leads to a novel ultra tough hybrid composite. The new HEAD Innegra hybrid-composite structure is integrated into the racket for shock absorption and improved stability.
CT2 - Corrugated Technology 2
New for 2011 - Corruagted rails are incorporated in the sfaft of the racquet creating up o 12% more stiffness than a conventional racquet design. Longer rails than the original Corrugated Technology.
Amplified Fibre Technology (AFT)
HEAD's new for 2011 Amplified Fibre Technology provides increased stiffness for more power. The carbon fibres are stretched during the manufacturing process leading to an improved bonding resulting in explosive power.
HEAD enters a new era of technology with the launch of YOUTEK. Designed to adapt to all levels of squash skill, YOUTEK technologies focus on individual playing styles to enhance performance and bring out the best play in "YOU".
d3o - (dee-three-oh)
HEAD's d3o Technology is a specially engineered material made with intelligent molecules. The molecules flow as the racquet moves but on shock lock together to absorb the impact energy.
Teflon Friction Reducing Polymer
HEAD's Teflon Friction Reducing Polymer: Allows minimal string friction and creates a bigger "sweet spot" through the even distribution of tension across the entire string bed. Strings do not lose as much energy and can move freely around the grommets offering the player more power and feel on the racquet.
HEAD's Corrugated Technology is a revolutionary new shaft design that optimizes power, torsion, bending and handling on every stroke.
Faster-paced and more aggressive, Squash has changed. New techniques have evolved: expanded use of spin, faster, more aggressive swing styles, and more versatility in footwork and hitting stances.
No chain is strong enough to harness the power of HEAD Metallix. Made of a crystal matrix of carbon fibers, Metallix is one of the lightest and strongest new materials today.
Squash racquets have traditionally bent in the same way on ball impact. Now with HEAD's new Flexpoint technology, everything has changed.
With two control holes HEAD's new Flexpoint squash Racquets are the first to bend in a whole new way.
The Liquidmetal material is applied to four strategic areas of the racquet’s head and is the only material that utilizes all the energy your swing generates. Due to its liquid atomic structure, no energy is lost on ball impact.
HEAD Intellingence X gives you the ability to focus your power with Xtra precision to place shots exactly as you visualized.
A composite weave of ultra-strong titanium and ultra-light graphite fibers for the maximum weight reduction, optimal stiffness and power.
