World Record Smashing Speed of 306MPH!!!!
YONEX has been manufacturing badminton racquets for over 50 years. During this time we have continually pushed the limits of design and engineering to deliver the racquet speed required to compete in the world’s fastest racquet sport.After setting the Smash Speed world record of 262 mph in 2010, we challenged ourselves to create an even more powerful racquet.
This year YONEX achieved its goal through the NANORAY Z-Speed - set a new Smash Speed world record of 306 mph.
Will you break the speed barrier?
The NANORAY series provides you with two vital advantages: Faster swing speed and higher repulsion. NANORAY is the perfect choice for those players who force their opponents into the back of the court
NANORAY Z-SPEED FEATURES:
SBZ (SNAP BACK ZONE) : The unique frame design of the NANORAY ZSPEED means that the frame is thinner at the midway point at either side of the racquet head. At this point, EX-HMG, the most elastic and powerful material ever, is used within the frame, allowing it to ﬂex on impact and repel the shuttle with explosive acceleration and devastating power.
Yonex Nanoray ZSpeed Badminton Racket/Racquet:
NANOSCIENCE: Yonex Nanoscience achieves precise control over racquet functions at the molecular level. It establishes a high-performance molecular bond of the fullerene and carbon nanoparticles, creating an ultra-lightweight racquet that's thinner, stronger and more stable than an ordinary racquet for maximum power and speed from swing energy.
X-FULLERENE: X-Fullerene is used in the resin which bonds the Carbon fibres and creating the cross-link construction. The tenfold increase in binding force makes it possible to create 5% higher repulsion and 15% greater stability.
NEW GROMMET SYSTEM: The single-pass grommet hole construction provides more grommet holes, creating a high-performance stringing pattern that puts 7% more durability.
MUSCLE POWER: Muscle Power sets the string on rounded archways that eliminate stress-load and fatigue through contact friction. The construction creates total unity of the string and frame through closer-and-tighter contact.
NANOSCALE ELASTIC TI: Elastic Ti provides the high elasticity needed for structural high strength and a powerful rebound effect. At impact, Elastic Ti resists deformation, stretching then recovering its shape quickly to launch accurate hits charged with the full energy of the swing.
ISOMETRIC: The Isometric Square Head Shape equalizes the length of main and cross strings in the stringbed, enlarging the sweetspot for more consistent accuracy even on off-center hits.
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.
