The stunning Carlton Razor Prototype V1.0 is a racket that has re-written the rule books. It is ideal for advanced players seeking control by combining a lightweight, even balanced frame with a medium flex shaft. The racket has been engineered for a player with an all around game. The direct contact between the cross strings and the racket frame gives this racket razor sharp control and amazing feedback. This is the racket of choice for Joachim Persson, highest world ranking No. 10.
Redefining Badminton Racket Technology
The stunning Razor V1.0 is the racket that has re-written the rulebooks and is the first in Carltons line of 'Razor' badminton rackets.
Engineered for players by players, the Carlton Razor V1.0 badminton racket is the culmination of extensive research into the bio-mechanics of the badminton swing.
The result a racket that features a lightweight XTreme tension frame designed to withstand higher string tensions and Bi-Axial dynamics enabling enhanced manoeuvrability and control. Completed with Razor guided technology, the Razor V.1.0 features strings wrapped around the frame at the 3 and 9 oclock position to ensure a responsive feel with greater accuracy.
By combining a lightweight, even balanced frame with a medium flex shaft and a unique stringing pattern never seen before; this racket is ideally suited for the all-round player seeking a mix of control and unrivalled power. The direct contact between the cross strings and the frame allows this racket razor-sharp control and amazing responsiveness.
Carltons research and development department has been closely studying the bio mechanics of the badminton swing. This extensive research has been driven with one vision: to create a frame that delivers aerodynamic efficiency at every phase of the overhead badminton swing.
Bio-mechanical analysis of the overhead badminton swing highlights two distinct aerodynamic directions evident during the swing phase. Air flow analysis during the swing phase also demonstrates the existence of two aerodynamic directions. The Bi-Axial Dynamics frame develops more efficient aerodynamics in both directions compared to competitor frames. During development, over 80% of players stated the new Bi-Axial frame profile delivered increased swing speed.
Sourced from Japan, Japanese Hi Modulus Carbon is the highest specification carbon available on the market ensuring your Carlton frame will outperform all other construction materials for frame response and stability
Xtreme tension frame precision engineering and the utilisation of the finest construction materials ensures your Carlton frame can accommodate up to 11% higher string tensions compared to competitor frames.
Using a matrix structure, Carlton has re-engineered the end cap to reduce its weight by 28% contributing to overall enhanced playability.
