September 26, 2016

HEAD and the world’s No.1 tennis player Novak Djokovic officially launched the brand new HEAD SPEED racquet series at an event in Milan, Italy. Designed for the fast pace of today’s game and featuring a unique falcon-inspired design, the SPEED series is the very first to feature the new Graphene Touch technology for a more solid and dampened feel.


Picking up the racquet’s tagline “Playing at the Speed of Light,” the audience witnessed Novak Djokovic coming out on stage to an energetic light show and LED light beam elements perfectly symbolizing the dynamic and fast pace of the SPEED series. After receiving the brand new racquet on stage, Novak put his new racquet to the test immediately in an exhibition match against Rafael Nadal.

The SPEED series consists of three different models to cater to players’ individual playing style and personal preferences. The new Graphene Touch technology delivers unparalleled touch without compromising the power level of Graphene, the SPEED racquet series also conquers courts with its unique design. Based on Novak’s favorite animal, the racquet features several falcon-inspired design elements such as an iconic feather plumage pattern and a falcon head integrated into the SPEED logo. The bold red decals mixed into to the mainly black and white frame give the racquet a fast and energetic look.
