HEAD introduces the Speed Limited Edition

April 25, 2016

Kennelbach/Austria — A special success story calls for a special limited edition. HEAD presents the 2016 SPEED LIMITED EDITION racquet, a powerful young version of the successful SPEED silo. Created with hands-on support by young and upcoming player Alexander Zverev, the 2016 SPEED LIMITED EDITION celebrates the SPEED silo with a modern design in sporting anodized metallic colors while providing the right mix between power and control for the versatile game of the next generation.


Based on the GRAPHENE XT SPEED racquet, recommended by Novak Djokovic, this limited edition clearly sets itself apart through its unique design. Entirely left in the hands of the next generation of upcoming SPEED athletes, led by Alexander Zverev – the matte-metallic look fits perfectly with the fast game of the next SPEED generation. The fresh colors also make an appearance in the matching racquet and gym bag, which allows young players everywhere to bring their versatile game to the biggest courts in style.

Just like its big brother, the 2016 SPEED LIMITED EDITION comes with the best technologies. While the revolutionary GRAPHENE XT technology shifts the racquet’s weight to where it is needed most for an improved energy transfer and the fastest game yet, its open 16/19 string pattern provides some added spin to the young versatile game.

The 2016 SPEED LIMITED EDITION will conquer HEAD’s social media channels in special activations highlighting the fun rivalry between the generations of SPEED players. The racquet is available at selected retailers and online as of April 2016.
