The Head Youtek IG Speed Lite is the lightest frame in the Youtek IG Speed line and has a larger headsize, wider beam, and sub-300 swingweight for improved maneuverability. Slightly wider 24mm beam, 102 square inch head, standard 27 inch length for a more forgiving feel than many of Head's other players frames, but without sacrificing control and feel. Introduces the use of Innegra material technology which stiffens the frame in key areas, enhancing feel, improving vibration dampening and stability. Continues the use of d3o and DuPont Teflon grommets as found in the previous generation Speed Lite. This combination of specifications adds up to a great blend of power and control for intermediate to advanced players with moderately fast swings.
The IG Speed Lite also uses a DuPont Teflon grommet system that reduces friction. Less friction means maintaining more of the strings energy, and a resulting slight increase in power.
Note: Head does not include a cover with this racquet.
Head continues d3o technology in the Head YouTek line, and is a "smart" material in that it behaves differently under varying dynamic loading or impact. Integrated in the frame lay-up and positioned in the shaft area (where the racquet flexes the most), d3o seeks to help players maximize performance on all shots. High speed impacts lock d3o together within nanoseconds at the molecular level, stiffening the frame to provide maximum power. Conversely, on slower speed impacts, the d3o molecules absorb the impact providing softer touch for better feel.
