Dunlop Biomimetic 500 Racquet Technologies
Aerogel is the world's lightest solid. It has strength up to 4,000 times its own weight. Aerogel's nanometer-sized molecular network delivers an unmatched strength to weight ratio for enhanced stiffness and power. Aerogel racquets offer incredible power with touch and feel without compromising weight.
This technology is inspired by shark skin. The unique surface appplication is strategically applied to the racquet frame. The dimpled texture creates localized turbulence and streamlines airflow over the racquet surface. This reduces drag by up to 25%, resulting in a faster racquet speed for more power.
This technology is inspired by a bee's honeycomb. High modulus carbon fiber is engineered into hexagonal sheets and is placed between layers of Aerogel-enhanced carbon. These hexagonal sheets help evenly distribute impact forces and absorb unwanted racquet frequencies to enhance feel up to 10%. The HM6 Carbon reduces energy loss and maximizes energy return.
This unique nano-scopic surface treatment on the grip is inspired by gecko setae. The perforated design increases moisture reduction and provides up to 50% more grip and tack. This results in enhanced control, precision and comfort.
