Below is a description of the new technologies for the Dunlop Biomimetic squash series of racquets for the 2013/2014 season.
Stronger than steel and lighter than carbon, Dunlop has extracted the stem fibres from plants and woven them into the shaft portion of the racket.
On ball impact this natural fibrous structure actively filters shockwaves by 18% to provide a cleaner more solid hit than conventional all composite construction.
Dunlop has taken the concept of low drag surface texturing to a new level. Inspired by the textured skin of sharks and engineered in a wind tunnel, AeroSkin Cx smooth’s turbulent air and reduces drag by up to 36% to provide greater racket head speed for more penetrative shot making.
