In 2009, the brand Carlton will be transition to Dunlop. Dunlop who owns and manufacturers the Carlton badminton line of equipment will concentrate on one brand, Dunlop Sports.
Because of the commitment to the development of racket sport equipment, Dunlop launch the most technologically advanced badminton equipment range ever to hit the court. Bold vibrant cosmetics and a number of ground breaking innovative technologies allow players of all ages and abilities to gain maximum performance from their equipment. One of these innovations has receives accolades in the Guiness Book of World Records as a result of its remarkable properties.
Dunlop'™s AEROGEL technology delivers enhanced stiffness and increased power without increasing weight. This combined with M-FIL™ across the hitting zone to soften shuttlecock impact means that AEROGEL frames deliver the perfect balance between power and control.
Next Generation Racket Technology
Aerogel™ technology is a truly space age material. It is the world's lightest solid and has a strength of up to 4,000 times its own weight. The three dimensional (3-D) nanometer-sized molecular network delivers an unmatched strength to weight ratio for enhanced stiffness and increased power. Dunlop'™s AEROGEL technology delivers enhanced stiffness and increased power without increasing weight.
Enhanced Touch & Feel
M-Fil™ (Multi-Filament) is a combination of three materials that are incorporated into the hitting zone of the racquet head to enhance the touch and feel of the racquet where and when you need it most - at the moment of the shuttle contact. The 3D braided structure at these key points enhances torsional stability at shuttlecock contact while frame deformation is similarly reduced and this helps to enhance dwell time on shuttlecock impact.
By reinforcing the T-Joint area with graphite layers, torsional strength is improved whilst lateral movement is minimized. The result is an improvement in shot accuracy especially from off-center shots.
