NANOFLARE – RAPID FIRE
Engineered to improve swing speed and maneuverability, the NANOFLARE is the only head-light racquet proven to provide unrivaled power and increased shuttle acceleration.
The difference is in the technology- built for speed, the NANOFLARE’s SONIC FLARE SYSTEM, which places special graphite material M40X* through the bottom of the frame is designed to flex on impact and immediately snapback, offering incredible swing stability and giving players both powerful and precise placement.
1. 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.
2. AERO FRAME
Smoother contours throughout the racquet head for less wind resistance and extra racquet speed.
3. COMPACT FRAME
To balance the heavy racquet head, the frame has been made smaller to maintain the fast swing demanded by advanced players.By reducing the drag caused by air resistance, the head-heavy feeling is reduced and racquet handling speed is increased.
Enlarged Sweet Spot
ISOMETRICTM technology continues to help the world’s greatest players achieve global success. Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRICTM design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRICTM racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings.
ISOMETRICTM delivers greater control without sacrificing power. ISOMETRICTM is a Trademark of Yonex CO., LTD.
*Tested by Yonex
A next-generation highly strong, yet elastic carbon fiber developed by Toray Industries, Inc.
6. SOLID FEEL CORE
The built-in solid feel core cuts harmful miscellaneous vibration at impact. Solid feel core is carried in all racquets manufactured in Japan.
7. SONIC FLARE SYSTEM
The revolutionary new graphite material TORAYCAR M40X and SUPER HMG provide unrivalled power and stability for maximum shuttle acceleration.
8. ULTRA PE FIBER
The shaft is constructed using ‘Ultra PEF’ – ultra poly ethylene fibre – which is light enough to float on water yet able to withstand immense forces. these characteristics allow for maximum shock absorption.
9. SUPER SLIM SHAFT
Reduced Air Resistance
The slimmest racquet ever produced by YONEX vastly reduces air resistance whilst providing maximum feel.
10. ENERGY BOOST CAP PLUS
Uniquely shaped cap which maximizes shaft performance.The front allows the shaft to flex, while the sides arch-shaped curve stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft from twisting.
11. NEW BUILT-IN T-JOINT
The lightweight T-Joint increases stability of the shuttle on the strings, maximizing power and control.
Provides sharper power for all your shots.
13. SPEED- ASSIST BUMPER
The SPEED-ASSIST BUMPER is a connected grommet containing highly rigid material that is resistant to warping. They are attached to the lower part of the frame to reduce frame warp and improve repulsion performance.
