Dunlop Squash


Nature and its organisms have evolved over millions of years to become highly optimized and efficient in their chosen environment. The concept of Biomimetics is to use nature and the natural world to inspire the design of engineering solutions and cutting edge technology. Application of Biomimetic design can be seen in a diverse range of industries from wing design on aircraft, to design of high speed bullet trains and advanced structural engineering. Sporting examples include the super strong crash cells in Formula 1 cars inspired by honeycomb and hydrodynamic swimsuits inspired by shark skin. Dunlop has taken this concept to inspire three new racket technologies, creating the ultimate range of performance rackets.

MIMETIC = TO IMITATE

AEROSKIN

HM6 CARBON

GECKO-TAC

Aeroskin reduces aerodynamic drag by up to 25%* for increased racket speed and power.

HM6 Carbon reduces racket frequency and vibration by up to 10%* for ultimate energy return and feel.

Gecko-Tac technology provides up to 50%* more grip and tack than previous Dunlop technology, giving greater control, feel and precision.

Aeroskin is inspired by the skin of the most highly evolved marine predator, the shark. Its streamlined body is covered in microscopic riblets which create localized turbulence reducing drag. This allows the shark to slice through the water with more speed and strike with more power. Like the shark, Aeroskin uses a unique textured skin strategically applied to the surface of the racket which helps to smooth airflow around the racket and reduces aerodynamic drag. This makes the racket quicker through the air enhancing power, improving maneuverability and allowing for faster reaction time.

BIO = LIFE

* Than previous Dunlop technology.

HM6 is inspired by one of the strongest, most efficient structures in nature, the Honeycomb. Its complex mass of hexagonal cells creates an incredibly strong, lightweight structure that is up to 95% air to naturally absorb impacts while maintaining its shape. Using a revolutionary new manufacturing process, Dunlop has taken high modulus carbon fibers and engineered them into a hexagonal structure. The HM6 Carbon material is placed between layers of Aerogel enhanced carbon to create an incredibly stable construction. HM6 Carbon is effective because of a hexagons 6 equal sides. When this construction is applied to a racket the unwanted frequencies are absorbed and distributed evenly, giving enhanced racket feel and minimal energy loss which equals maximum energy return.

Gecko-Tac is inspired by the pads on the foot of one of nature’s most highly evolved species, the gecko. The nanoscopic surface of the gecko’s foot gives it the ability to stick upside down on any surface, in any condition. Like the Gecko’s foot, our incredible new surface treatment technology provides superior levels of grip in any condition. The smooth tacky surface is also perforated which helps wick away excess moisture ensuring you never lose control. Gecko-Tac grips provide better control, precision and comfort, whatever your level of play.
