HEAD presents new 2011 YouTek Innegra Racquet line-up

January 11th, 2011

HEAD is proud to present its new line of squash racquets for 2011. The new YouTek™ Innegra™ series combines the best features of the well-accepted YouTek™ umbrella concept and adds innovation by marrying the high performance materials d3o™ with HEAD's new Innegra™ fibre technology.

The unique Innegra™ fibre is lifting racquetsport development to a higher, more competitive level and its performance benefits are targeted to optimally suite the needs of the modern squash player. Extremely tough and light, Innegra™ boasts the lowest density of any existing fibre. Its extreme toughness together with HEAD’s advanced carbon composite technology leads to a novel ultra tough hybrid-composite, which is integrated into the racquet for shock absorption and improved stability. As a result vibrations are reduced by up to 17% on ball impact for unique control and precision.

On top of this: HEAD’s new hybrid-composite structure with the ultra tough Innegra™ fibre considerably extends the performance of the racquet without losing any of its great properties.

HEAD’s YouTek™ concept aims to provide players with the perfect racquet for their individual game. The new YouTekTM Innegra series introduces the following racquets: the YouTek™ Cyano2 115, the YouTek™ Neon2 130 and the YouTek™ Argon2 115; they complement the existing Xenon 135, Anion 135 and Cerium 150 racquets which will remain in the 2011 line-up. Whether squash players are looking for power or control in their racquet (or the right combination of both), for a head heavy or a head light racquet, the YouTek™ series offers the right weapon for any style of play.

For 2011 HEAD also developed the Anti Shock Foam, a special honeycomb foam which is integrated into the handle. This development provides an instantly noticeable benefit. Vibration of the racquet on ball impact is reduced within nanoseconds. That creates a perfect impact absorption along with resulting benefits of touch and comfort. The addition of the new Ultra Soft Tour grip tape further increases the positive feel of the new HEAD squash racquets.
