Head launches MXG racquet technology
April 20, 2017
Kennelbach/Austria — Designed like no other for those who want to play like no other: with MXG, HEAD introduces the first racquet technology that combines precision-injected Magnesium and Graphene to provide the ultimate balance of power and control like no other racquet ever before. Based on a completely new engineering process, the revolutionary design also provides ultimate stability at a very low weight, helping players at every level raise their game.
“We conducted extensive player research and identified the need for both power and control in a racquet. Based on these results, we developed MXG, an entirely new technology that merges two materials together for the ultimate balance of power and control,” says Ottmar Barbian, EVP Racquet Sport.
The secret to power under control lies in the innovative Magnesium Bridge construction that allows for longer free-moving main strings. This leads to a much larger sweet spot and, ultimately, more power. At the same time, the molded bridge ensures that the upper hoop does not deform under pressure, which gives the player total control on every shot.
The innovative MXG technology is not only designed like no other, it also plays like no other. Featured in HEAD’s new MXG racquet series, the racquets are the ideal fit for those who want to up their game with the next generation of racquet technology. The MXG racquet series will be available May 5th, 2017 in two different models, MXG 5 and MXG 3, at selected retailers.
