Yonex Dual Optimum System
Yonex Extra Slim Shaft
NANOMETRIC* improves the bonding strength between the carbon fibres 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 lightening head speed and control.
*NANOMETRIC is the new material which applies the NANOALLOYTM Technology of Toray Industries, Inc.
Yonex Nanometric DR
NANOMETRIC DR is a new carbon material developed by Yonex based on our unique NANOSCIENCE technology. Created from a material originally developed for next generation space aviation by Toray Industries, Inc., this marks the first time it has been used within the racquet industry. By combining firm shuttle hold and high repulsion, NANOMETRIC DR puts the DUORA into a class of its own.
Yonex Duora Grommet
The new DUORA Grommet design features 8 linked grommets made with differing thicknesses on either side of the frame. When hit on the box side, thicker and harder grommets on the aero side result in a stiffer string bed, ultimately increasing launch power on the shuttlecock.
This works together with the DUAL OPTIMUM SYSTEM, Yonex’s revolutionary frame design which features alternating box and aero-shaped structures on either side of the racquet. Incorporating the carbon graphite material NANOMETRIC DR, DUORA racquets are afforded firm shuttle hold and high repulsion.
Isometric Head Shape
Yonex’ square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length. This shape produces a larger sweet spot in all directions.
New Grommet Pattern
Yonex’ new single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes and fewer shared holes than other brands. This permits for a more high-performance stringing pattern.
YONEX has designed a new grommet pattern called the HORIZONTAL-A CONCEPT that has helped us create the smallest frame in our history. The pattern anchors 4 strings horizontally to allow greater flex in the string bed and to create an enlarged sweet spot at the top of the frame. So even off-centre shots can be powerful.
Solid Feel Core
The built-in solid feel core in Yonex premium racquets reduces harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. This technology, called “solid feel core” is a feature of all Yonex racquets manufactured in Japan.
Yonex Compact Frame
The first racquet from YONEX with a compact frame. The smaller frame size further reduces unwanted air resistance and improves feel.
Yonex frames are contoured differently on different parts of the loop. Some areas feature an aerodynamic shape to reduce air resistance. Other areas feature a box shape to provide strength and power. This combination offers a quick swing with a solid feel.
Built in T-Joint
Moulded deep into the layers of graphite where the frame connects with the shaft, the YONEX Built-in T-Joint creates a durable and high-strength one-piece frame that is torque-free.
A new composite material T-ANCHOR used in the T-joint helps reduce excess torque when hitting an off centre shot.
Yonex Control Support Cap
The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.
