The Volkl 2013 Power Bridge 10 MID Stealth features a new striking stealth cosmetic update to go along with a 93 square inch midsize head for the ultimate in control and feel. This racquet maintains the use of Volkl's DNX material in the 3 and 9 o'clock positions as well as in the cap above the grip, but with the added stability of the DNX-reinforced Power Bridge in the throat area. DNX material placed in key regions, combined with a stiffer frame construction in the shaft area produces maximum power in a player's frame. The Volkl 2013 Power Bridge 10 MID Stealth is one of the most control oriented tournament level racquets available, focused on providing exceptional feel due to a flexible construction, combined with a thin beam that maximizes the control of each shot. Spin friendly 16x19 pattern and thin 19mm beam offers outstanding feedback for advanced players with long swings.
DNX technology is a unique new material developed by Volkl in cooperation with the Fraunhofer TEG Institute in Germany, that is 25 times stronger than any other mass-produced carbon fiber. DNX is located in three strategic points in the racquet to improve playability. DNX at 3 and 9 o'clock increases torsional stability, allowing for greater control, even off-center hits. DNX is also placed in a cap above the grip to add strength and power to the frame.
One of the most important factors that determine the power of a tennis racket is the stability and stiffness of the frame. Because the more stable the frame is, the more kinetic energy can be returned to the ball. Using the next generation of DNX technology, Powerbridge is an innovative construction which considerably increases the stability of the critical throat/yoke area of the frame. This makes the entire racket more powerful and dynamic. This effect is achieved on the one hand by integrating the high-strength DNX material and on the other hand by increasing the specific material density in the yoke.
