In 1980 YONEX launched Carbonex 8 which was the world’s first sub-100g racquet. Since then badminton has been transformed by lightweight racquets and the speed of play. We have challenged ourselves to produce an innovative new racquet that takes the demands of today’s ultra quick and powerful game to the next level.
The secret to this new racquet comes from a scientific breakthrough in NANOSCIENCE technology, called NANOMETRIC*. NANOMETRIC improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibers enabling us to take racquet shaft construction to another level. By reducing the amount of carbon in the shaft to make it 60% thinner than a conventional racquet whilst retaining stiffness, YONEX has created a revolutionary lightweight racquet with lightning head speed and control.
*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.
