The Astrox Lite 27i iSeries badminton racket is developed in Japan and made in China.
It is a new Astrox range available in the ever-popular Yonex iSeries.
This racket is built with Nanomesh Neo which is a material that promotes quicker shaft take-back. Once the racket has made contact with the shuttle the NANOMESH NEO helps the frame to return to its original state in order for you to be able to play your next shot for that attaching edge.
The aero-box frame helps minimizing air resistance so air flows faster across the curved surface during the swing, accelerating head speed and transferring more speed and power into hits. Great potential as an all-round and perfect racket for double players as it’s easy to maneuver due to its weight and length.
Nanomesh Neo is a material that promotes quicker shaft take-back. It is an adhesive which helps combine the Graphite fiber with the resin for a stronger and more flexible frame. This allows for the shaft to flex more building up energy to transfer to the shuttle, on both smash and drive shots. Once the racket has made contact with the shuttle the NANOMESH NEO helps the frame to return to its original state in order for you to be able to play your next shot for that attaching edge.
Enlarged Sweet Spot
ISOMETRICTM technology continues to help the world’s greatest players achieve global success. Developed over 30 years ago, the ISOMETRICTM design increases the sweet spot by 7%*. Compared to a conventional round frame, a square-shaped ISOMETRICTM racquet generates a larger sweet spot by optimizing the intersection of the main and cross strings. ISOMETRICTM delivers greater control without sacrificing power. ISOMETRICTM is a Trademark of Yonex CO., LTD.
*Tested by Yonex.
Aero Box Frame
Aerodynamic contouring of the top of the frame minimizes air resistance so air flows faster across the curved surface during the swing, accelerating head speed and transferring more speed and power into hits. This construction tapers into the YONEX Box Shape midway through the frame for high stability, low-torque performance and more accuracy.
‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.
Control Support Cap
The control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racquet for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.
The ASTROX is an attack-orientated model which can take the lead in a high-speed game with a design that can deliver powerful, steep smashes, allowing you to dominate the court.
Rotational Generator System
By applying the counterbalance theory, weight is distributed throughout the grip end, frame top and the joint for maximum control. The transition to the next shot can be performed smoothly with rapid succession.
Revolutionary Graphite Namd
In high performance racquets, it is common to combine nanomaterials with resin that connects graphite fibers, but in Namd, nanomaterials are directly adhered to the graphite fibers and resin is greatly increased. This major improvement produces a shaft that flexes and stores energy, delivering explosive force on impact with the shuttle.
ENERGY BOOST CAP
New Energy Boost Cap maximizes the shaft’s performance. The front flexes the shaft and exerts the maximum effect of Namd. The side’s arch shaped curve stabilizes the racquet face by preventing the shaft twisting.
