Power Bridge Technology:
The secret of Power Bridge lies in two components. The first is the tried-and-tested DNX technology, which is now being used in the bridge of the racquet head for the first time. Second, the designers at Völkl Tennis have succeeded in reducing the cross-section of the bridge without losing stability. The quantity of expansion resin which functions as the binding agent to bond the yoke to the rest of the frame to form a unit remains completely unchanged here. The only difference is the higher compaction of the matrix. In conjunction with the power features of DNX this compression produces an enormously solid composite material which optimizes the heart of the racquet, thereby investing the entire racquet with more power.
To date, the "DNX Tuning" of the rackets from Völkl Tennis has concentrated on the shaft area and the two lateral brackets on the racket head (3- and 9-o'clock positions). With Power Bridge they have now also strengthened the 6-o'clock position. Integrating the yoke into the seamless main frame while still guaranteeing consistent stability is a particularly complicated task. Power Bridge offers an ideal solution to this problem for the first time - not only ensuring that the critical heart of the racquet is more stable, but also providing extra power. As a result, Power Bridge permits an even more dynamic style of play.
DNX Technology: DNX is a new unique material structure featuring high-strength micro tube construction that is 25 times stronger than regular carbon fibers. DNX is an entirely new material class whose properties represent the fourth dimension of carbon. DNX has strength characteristics that have never been reached before, a true break-through in material development.
Sensor Handle™ System: The combination of two materials, TechnoGel™ and EVA in the shaft construction ensures optimum comfort because of their excellent vibration and shock absorbency. In the Sensor
