HEAD Launches New YouTek Racquets

January 13, 2011

HEAD proudly presents the second generation of YouTek™ Speed racquets, which again has been developed with and for world No. 3 player Novak Djokovic. The new YouTek™ IG Speed Series combines the best feature of the well-accepted YouTek™, d3o™, with HEAD’s new Innegra™ fiber technology.

Similar to Formula 1 racing where Innegra™ fiber technology is used to extend the performance and durability on a very high level, HEAD’s new frame structure considerably extends the performance of all HEAD YouTek™ IG Speed racquets to the highest level, giving it consistent performance over the entire life of the frame.

HEAD racquet rebel Novak Djokovic is excited to play at the upcoming Australian Open with his new weapon of choice: “The name is Speed, and the racquet gives me a lot of speed in this aggressive game. We have been working hard on the racquet in order to improve it as much as possible.”

The five YouTek™ IG Speed Series racquets now also include a 300 gram MP version for easier playability. All of them are offering a distinctive differentiation towards existing YouTekTM models with unique new design elements.

See below for more details on the different versions of the new YouTek™ Speed IG series:

YouTek IG Speed MP: The Speed MP is the perfect combination of power and control for heavy hitters with a long fast swing style. It is available in three models, accommodating a wide range of players. You’ll never want to put this racquet down!

The YouTek IG Speed MP 18/20, 16/19 and Lite models will be available in stores the week of January 17. The YouTek IG Speed 300 and Elite models will be available in early March.
