    BIOMIMETIC

    NATURE AND ITS ORGANISMS HAVE EVOLVED OVER MILLIONS OF YEARS TO BECOME HIGHLY OPTIMISED AND EFFICIENT IN THEIR CHOSEN ENVIRONMENT. THE CONCEPT OF BIOMIMETICS IS THE STUDY OF NATURE AND THE NATURAL WORLD TO INSPIRE THE DESIGN OF ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS AND CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY.

    Aeroskin CX

    36% REDUCED AERODYNAMIC DRAG = GREATER RACKET HEAD SPEED FOR MORE POWER AND SPIN.

    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.

    Aeroskin

    INCREASED RACKET HEAD SPEED AND POWER

    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 LOCALISED TURBULENCE WHICH IN TURN REDUCE DRAG. THIS ALLOWS THE SHARK TO SLICE THROUGH THE WATER WITH MORE SPEED AND STRIKE WITH MORE POWER.

    Anatomic Construction

    APEX PREDATORS ARE HIGHLY EVOLVED FOR POWER AND PRECISION. TAKING INSPIRATION FROM THEIR ANATOMICAL BONE STRUCTURE DUNLOP HAS INVERTED THE STRUCTURAL FORM OF THE THROAT IN 3 KEY AREAS TO MINIMISE TORSIONAL DEFLECTION FOR INCREASED PRECISION AND CONTROL OF OFF CENTRE SHOTS.

    BioFibre

    18% REDUCED SHOCK ON BALL IMPACT = GREATER COMFORT, FEEL AND CONTROL.

    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.

    CX Technology

    CX TECHNOLOGY IS INSPIRED BY THE WINGS OF BIRDS OF PREY TO REDUCE AERODYNAMIC DRAG IN THE HOOP. THIS COMBINED WITH A TRUOVAL HEAD SHAPE GREATLY INCREASES THE RACKETS SWEET SPOT TO MAXIMISE POWER.

    HM6 Carbon

    REDUCED RACKET VIBRATIONS

    USING A REVOLUTIONARY NEW MANUFACTURING PROCESS, DUNLOP HAS TAKEN HIGH MODULUS CARBON FIBRES AND ENGINEERED THEM INTO A HEXAGONAL STRUCTURE. THE HM6 CARBON MATERIAL IS THEN PLACED BETWEEN LAYERS OF CARBON TO CREATE AN INCREDIBLY STABLE CONSTRUCTION.

    Hybrid Cross Section

    HYBRID POWER PROPERTIES OF AN OVAL CROSS SECTION IN THE HEAD WITH THE STABILITY AND COMFORT OF A BOX SECTION IN THE SHAFT PORTION OF THE RACKET HELPS PROVIDE MORE POWER THAN PREVIOUS MODELS WITHOUT LOSS OF CONTROL.

    Pentagonal Geometry

    ENHANCED CONTROL

    THE SHAFT PORTION OF THE RACKET HAS BEEN ENGINEERED TO A 5 SIDED CROSS SECTION WHICH RESULTS IN ENHANCED RACKET STIFFNESS AND POWER AND ALSO MINIMISES TORSIONAL TWIST FOR INCREASED LEVELS OF CONTROL.

    Vibrotech

    WIDER STRING HOLES WITH SOFTER GROMMETS AT THE BRIDGE AREA ALLOWS THE BALL TO REMAIN ON THE RACKET STRINGS FOR LONGER, ENHANCING THE TRAMPOLINE EFFECT FOR INCREASED POWER AND REDUCING STRING VIBRATION.

    3DOM Grommet System

    INSPIRED BY THE SANDFISH SKINK, A LIZARD THAT CAN SWIM THROUGH SAND, DUNLOP’S UNIQUE GROMMET TECHNOLOGY FUSES MICROSCOPIC RIDGES AND A NEAR FRICTIONLESS HIGH STRENGTH POLYMER WITH A CARTILAGE INSPIRED ELASTOMER THAT PROVIDES 3DIMENSIONAL STRING MOVEMENT FOR SUPERIOR PENETRATIVE POWER.

    3DOM GS

    A NEW GROMMET SYSTEM LOCATED ACROSS THE HITTING ZONE OF THE RACKET. THE GROMMET STRIP SITS ON AN ELASTOMER BED TO CUSHION THE BALL ON IMPACT AND ENHANCE STRING MOVEMENT FOR INCREASED POWER.

    Anti Friction Grommets

    INSPIRED BY THE SANDFISH SKINK, A LIZARD THAT CAN SWIM THROUGH SAND, DUNLOP’S UNIQUE GROMMET TECHNOLOGY COMBINES MICROSCOPIC RIDGES WITH A NEAR FRICTIONLESS, HIGH STRENGTH POLYMER THAT PROVIDES GREATER STRING MOVEMENT AND IMPROVED AERODYNAMICS FOR ADDED PENETRATIVE POWER.

    CX Grommets

    POCKETED GROMMETS AND A MORE AERODYNAMIC CROSS SECTION IN THE RACKET HOOP MAKE THE NEW GEOMETRIES MORE AERODYNAMIC THAN PREVIOUS MODELS HELPING TO INCREASE RACKET HEAD SPEED.

    MoS2 Grommets

    27% REDUCED STRING FRICTION & 40% INCREASED ABRASION RESISTANCE = GREATER POWER, SPIN AND DURABILITY

    INSPIRED BY THE WEAR RESISTANT SELF LUBRICATING PROPERTIES OF SNAKE SKIN, DUNLOP HAS ENGINEERED A REVOLUTIONARY NEW POLYMER FEATURING A MICROSCOPIC LUBRICANT MOS2. MOS2 INCREASES GROMMET DURABILITY BY 40% AND REDUCES STRING FRICTION BY 27% DELIVERING MORE STRING MOVEMENT FOR ENHANCED POWER AND SPIN.

    Gecko Tac

    50% MORE GRIP AND TACK = GREATER CONTROL, FEEL AND PRECISION

    GECKO-TAC IS INSPIRED BY THE PADS ON THE FOOT OF ONE OF NATURE’S MOST HIGHLY EVOLVED SPECIES, THE GECKO. THE NANO-SCOPIC SURFACE OF THE GECKO’S FOOT GIVES IT THE ABILITY TO STICK UPSIDE DOWN ON ANY SURFACE, IN ANY CONDITION.THE SMOOTH TACKY SURFACE IS ALSO PERFORATED WHICH HELPS WICK AWAY EXCESS MOISTURE ENSURING YOU NEVER LOSE CONTROL.
