INCREDIBLE POWER & FAST RACQUET HANDLING

Combining incredible power and fast racquet handling for the first time, VOLTRIC is the perfect racquet for players seeking exceptional ‘all-round’ performance.

TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM

Traditionally, extra weight at the top of the racquet frame has increased hitting power but reduced the speed of racquet handling. In contrast, a lighter top to the frame increases speed but causes a loss of hitting power. For the first time, the new TRI-VOLTAGE SYSTEM successfully combines the contrasting characteristics of exceptional power and great handling. YONEX has developed a racquet which achieves the combination of heavy smashes and speedy racquet handling.

VOLTRIC IS POWER The stiff racquet structure at the top of the frame allows the head to bend in a very controlled way and hold shuttles on the string bed for longer. The thin frame sides then allow the frame to flex more and transfer more energy to the shuttle. This combination allows you to smash with instant power.

ULTRA SLIM LONG SHAFT Ultra Slim Long Shaft

VOLTRIC IS AGILITY In VOLTRIC, the weight is balanced on the top of the frame and at the joint area which allows good handling while also maintaining power. The thin sides of the frame and at the top of the head reduce air resistance and improve the handling even further. Players can now make a full swing even during short range rallies as VOLTRIC responds instantly to even subtle movements.

SOUND FILTER

SOUND FILTER

THE THINNEST EVER WITH MORE POWER

YONEX has invested five years researching materials which will provide both high strength and high repulsion – a task often thought to be impossible using carbon technology. Finally, YONEX has developed a racquet which achieves the unique combination of heavy smashes and speedy racquet handling.

VOLTRIC IS STRONG SOUNDING Another innovative YONEX technology, Sound Filter uses new materials at the two and ten o’clock positions to reduce only high pitched and dull soundwaves. This produces a louder and sharper sound on impact to unsettle opponents, and provides a more aggressive tone to your game for a relentlessly attacking style of play. Sound Filter also reduces uncomfortable sensation from the racquet by rapidly eliminating 31% of vibrations.

VT80 is more stable compared to conventional racquets due to the presence of NANOPREME in the shaft. When bending and releasing two racquets under the same force, the VT80 racquet rebounds almost twice as far as a conventional racquet does in the same length of time (0.018 seconds). This equates to 10% greater stability from VT80 compared to conventional racquets. Epoxy resin

NANOPREMETM

NANOPREME is a new level in ‘Nano-technology’, operating on a scale of less than one billionth of a metre by using an epoxy resin to bind graphite fibres together. NANOPREME overcomes the limited qualities of carbon technology to provide stiffness, high resilience and high repulsion from a single racquet material for the very first time.

A LIGHTNING FAST SWING WITH NEW AERO FRAME The latest head-light series from YONEX, NANORAY provides a fast and controlled swing with enhanced repulsion via the New Aero Frame. NANORAY is designed for players who force their opponents into the back of the court with extreme speed.

New AERO Frame

Achieve the optimal balance between high repulsion and a comfortable swing with New AERO Frame

New AERO Frame

The secret behind NANORAY’s exceptional performance is a unique head construction featuring YONEX’s New Aero Frame structure where the frame sides vary in thickness between the top and bottom of the head. The thinner top of the frame sides minimize air resistance for greater head speed, while the thicker sides at the bottom of the head generate maximum repulsion through greater frame stiffness.

X-FULLERENE

Incorporating X-Fullerene into the whole shaft strengthens the binding force, increasing stiffness by 6% and repulsion power by 4%. This combination delivers high repulsion performance to hit deep into the opponent’s court even with a compact swing during high speed rallies. Lightning fast shot-making with high repulsion is generated by near-instant ‘snap back’ from the shaft during the swing.

New shaft equipped with X-FULLERENE creates even greater repulsion power than the NANOSPEED Series

THE CHALLENGE OF ACHIEVING ZERO AIR RESISTANCE Fig1. + Fig2. Analysis of the frame position through a smash swing sequence shows that 70% of a smash swing sequence is in an oblique (angled) direction in relation to the direction of the shuttle flight. Fig3. The red lines in the air flow analysis diagrams indicate the areas of fastest air flow and the blue the slowest. In testing, the air moves fastest around the Z-SLASH frame whilst causing minimal air disturbance in its wake. In contrast, the conventional frame shape has reduced levels of high speed air flow and causes increased disturbance behind the frame. Fig1.

X-FULLERENE

In 2005, YONEX developed the NANOSPEED series of racquets to advance the levels of speed in the game, using a Nanoscience technology known as Fullerene. Now, YONEX has taken Fullerene to the next level by developing X-Fullerene – the next generation of speed. FULLERENE CARBON FIBRE RESIN LAYER

NANOSPEED GENERATES A FASTER SWING AND SHARP OFFENSIVE PLAY VIA THE EXCEPTIONALLY LIGHT HEAD NANOSPEED is our most ‘head-light’ series, designed for players with a naturally quick swing and a sharp, attacking playing style. It is the ideal racquet for players seeking faster movement and greater maneuverability on the court.

YONEX Nanoscience achieves precise control over racquet behaviour at a molecular level. By establishing a high-performance molecular bond between the fullerene and carbon nano-particles, YONEX has created an ultra-lightweight racquet that is thinner, stronger and more stable than an ordinary racquet for maximum power and swing speed energy.

The reduced shaft weight is transferred to the grip and frame, realising a new dimension in head-light racquets.

The new generation X-Fullerene has 4 radial ribs which unite carbon atoms to form a football-like structure. The X-Fullerene is used in the resin which bonds the carbon fibres and creates the cross-link construction. The tenfold increase in binding force makes it possible to create 5% higher repulsion power and 15% greater stability.

POWER ARMOR SYSTEM

THE ARMORTEC LIGHTWEIGHT BODY DESIGN GENERATES POWERFUL ATTACKING SHOTS AND HIGH LEVEL FACE STABILITY In spite of a light body, ARMORTEC racquets deliver exceptional power in both offensive and defensive play. By shifting the position of the Elastic Ti within the racquet head, players can choose greater precision from a racquet which holds the shuttle on the strings for longer, or opt for an enhanced smash shot. For players who seek maximum power.

Fig1. YONEX’s Power Armor System utilises the principles of gravitational acceleration and the high-repulsion properties of various titanium alloys. As a result, ARMORTEC racquets generate 4% more speed, better face stability and provide a robust ‘metallic feel’ on impact. Fig2. The lightweight frame and distinctive cross sectional shape at the top of the head reduce the racquet’s torque performance – improving both speed and control. Fig1.

NANOMESH+CARBON NANOTUBE

Efficient Energy Transfer

New from YONEX: ‘NANOMESH + CARBON NANOTUBE’ is an exclusive structural material inserted into the frame and/or shaft of the NANORAY series. It significantly increases repulsion power, toughness and impact strength within the racquet. By combining Carbon Nanotube with a resin, the two molecules create a mesh-like construction which delivers a head-light racquet, sharper drive shots, improved strength and faster handling.

TITANIUM MESH

Combining titanium and aluminium creates a stronger and more flexible frame, providing a lighter racquet and greater repulsion power with a smoother swing.

MEGA Frame

Nanoair Spring in the resin binds the carbon fibres so that nanoscale air bubbles in the material help the racquet to flex and bend as in a spring. The result is a better transfer of energy from string-bed to shuttle for a more powerful hit.

SHUTTLECOCKS YONEX technology delivers outstanding stability in flight

NYLON SHUTTLECOCKS Developed using the flight timing of feather shuttlecocks, MAVIS Nylon Shuttlecocks are precision designed and manufactured to provide accurate flight performance.

Every shuttlecock produced by YONEX is meticulously inspected to ensure consistently fast recovery and accurate flight stability over distance. FEATHER SHUTTLECOCKS YONEX Feather Shuttlecocks are precision-manufactured to ensure the correct speed, distance and stability performance in different temperatures and environments. Their precise design delivers an exceptionally fast recovery and stable trajectory.

The YONEX Feather Shuttlecock is the official shuttlecock of these international tournaments in 2012.

This is why YONEX has been appointed as the Sole Supplier of shuttlecocks and stringing service to the London 2012 Olympic Games.

London 2012 Olympic Games

YONEX AEROSENSA Shuttlecocks are the official shuttlecock for the world’s leading international tournaments. The precisely engineered technology in every lightweight YONEX Feather Shuttlecock is extensively checked and tested to guarantee consistent performance. These high standards are the reason that YONEX Feather Shuttlecocks are the official choice of international tournaments.

Badminton Asia Championships

When smashed, a MAVIS shuttlecock recovers in only 0.02 seconds. This performance is just 0.005 seconds slower than a YONEX Feather Shuttlecock and 0.008 seconds faster than the recovery of an ordinary shuttlecock. The combination of close-to-feather shuttlecock flight performance and four to five times more durability than an ordinary nylon shuttlecock makes the YONEX MAVIS series the most cost-effective choice for practice sessions.

Players should always use the shuttlecocks best suited to the playing environment. YONEX OPEN JAPAN 2011

The hardness of the skirt – the feather part of the nylon shuttlecock – varies depending on temperature. In the cold, as the skirt becomes hard, it is prone to breaking. In the hot, the skirt becomes softer and less likely to break, but the feel at impact is affected by the softer skirt. YONEX manages product quality by categorising MAVIS into 3 temperatures. Please ensure that you choose the shuttlecock best suited to the playing environment.*

FOOTWEAR TECHNOLOGY

Syncro-Fit Insole

New Upper Construction The upper part of the shoe is constructed out of only 5 sections, rather than the conventional 7 parts. This minimizes the number of overlapped areas and the requirement for heavy stitching.

Fig.1

Inside of insole

In some areas, ➁, stitching has been replaced by a hot glue which binds the sections together to reduce overall shoe weight.

Outside of insole

YONEX Syncro-Fit Insole allows a closer fit between shoe and foot, keeping power loss to an absolute minimum to achieve smoother movement and quicker footwork. Fig 1. Compared with conventional footwear, the mid to heel area at the side of the insole is lifted (see red lines on diagram) to provide a closer fit between shoe and foot. Fig 2. By holding the heel more firmly against the insole (see red lines on diagram), the gap between shoe and foot is reduced, improving comfort and fit.
