Technologies get individual.

YouTek™ combines superior technologies to perfectly match
your individual needs. Whether your game is aggressive and
adventurous or consistent and smooth, YouTek™ enhances
your performance and brings out the best in you.

    HEAD lay-up with smart material.
    d3o™ belongs to the “smart materials” category and is a futuristic material with abnormal behavior characteristics. More specifically, d3o™ belongs to a subcategory of “dilatant foams,” which dramatically change their behavior under dynamic loading or impact. Integrated in the lay-up
    and positioned in the shaft area of the racquet, d3o™ offers new possibilities for squash players.

    The d3o™ technology is able to sense the needs of the players during different strokes (it’s able to adapt to you). On high-speed impacts (aggressive shots), the smart molecules lock together within nanoseconds and dramatically
    increase the stiffness of the whole racquet frame to provide
    maximum power. On slow-speed impacts (slices or drop shots), the d3o™ molecules absorb the impact to provide a softer touch for better feel.

  • What does this mean to a squash player?
    Power shots are even harder and drop shots more precise, rewarding your spontaneity and supporting your courageous decisions.

    HEAD grommets with Teflon® friction-reducing polymer. The Teflon® friction-reducing polymer provides a low-friction contact surface, enabling the strings to slide through the grommets with nearly no friction. Moving without resistance, the strings maintain their energy during ball impact, providing more power. During the stringing process, the Teflon® friction-reducing polymer in the grommet system provides even and consistent tension. The HEAD grommet system takes away the friction between the grommet and string, resulting in true tension and a larger sweet spot!

    Conventional grommets.
    Friction is present between the grommet and the string providing some degree of resistance during ball impact, resulting in energy loss and less power.

    Corrugated TechnologyHEADs Corrugated Technology is a revolutionary new shaft design that optimizes power, torsion, bending and handling on every stroke.

    How does it work?
    Corrugated rails are incorporated into the shaft of the racquet, creating up to 12% more stiffness than conventional racquet design.
