The new YONEX NANOFLARE DRIVE (NFDR), is a head-light racket built with unique technology and construction designed for fast swing due to its aerodynamic design and lightweight.
Lightning-fast speed meets exceptional repulsion in the new NANOFLARE series. Engineered to improve swing speed and maneuverability, NANOFLARE is the first head-light racquet that allows you to access the point-winning power of increased shuttle acceleration in one design.
Sonic Flare System - The Sonic Flare System in the newest Nanoflare racket range utilises a revolutionary Torayca® M40X graphite at the bottom of the frame to establish incredible rigidity and increased repulsion, whereas on the top of frame, there is the High Modulus graphite (or Super High Modulus graphite in case of top of the range frames) to ensure a superior striking speed of the racquet.
Nanocell Neo - The Nanocell Neo technology ensures all the characteristics of its predecessor, an excellent frame durability and reduced impact stress thanks to finely mixed nano-sized bubbles, and yet it remains surprisingly flexible, which is important for players that prefer a not so rigid shaft in the racquet of their choice.
Aero Frame - The new Aero Frame is both highly aerodynamic, allowing for fast and easy swings, while maintaining a profile that allows the frame to compress on impact with the shuttle, and snap back, much like a trampoline, launching the shuttle from the face of the racquet. Decreases air resistance and realizes a quicker swing combining "wide" body shape to get solid structure, creates a solid hitting feel and quick swing.
Super Slim Frame - This thin frame provides greater head speed and a solid feel.
ISOMETRIC - the square-shaped ISOMETRIC frame shape is designed to keep vertical strings at a similar length, as well as the horizontal strings to produce an expanded sweet spot in all directions.
New Built-in T-Joint - ‘NEW’ Built-in T-Joint is manufactured from a special lightweight plastic combined with epoxy resin and foaming agent that enhances quality and performance by increasing the stability of the shuttle on the string bed and through the air.
Control Support Cap - he control support cap provides an 88% wider flat surface compared with an ordinary racket for easier gripping, fast follow-through and the sharpest maneuverability.
