AirShuttle is the new shuttlecock optimized for the outdoor badminton game, AirBadminton.

The development of the AirShuttle has been a five-year project. It all started with a vision to develop a new outdoor shuttlecock with increased resistance to wind, to allow people to have a more positive experience of badminton outdoors.

The main considerations were that it must be played with the same rackets and have good flight performance, spin response and durability.

The basic criteria of AirShuttle were:
  • The shuttlecocks must have similar trajectory, acoustics and play feel to that of a traditional indoor shuttle.
  • Similar flight properties with limited influence from humidity variations.
  • Minimal impact from side and axial wind.
  • Needed to be able to be played in winds up to 12 km/h.
  • The shuttlecocks be durable and cost-effective.

During the period 2015-18, over 30 prototypes were developed and subject to rigorous testing.

A preferred design was confirmed in early 2018 and prototypes were then tested in independent studies by the University of Alicante and the Universiti of Malaya as part of the pilot program, using groups of players from beginner level through to Olympic-level athletes.

Results from this testing were analyzed and patents posted for the key design elements.

In March 2020, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) introduced the shuttlecock, AirShuttle, to the global market.

5 of 5 Fun for outdoor play for the family October 5, 2020
Reviewer: Lynn from Campbell, CA United States  
This new shuttlecock is really fun for playing outside. My kids love playing with them. We took turns to hit around in the backyard for hours in the evening. It is a great family fun activity. It does not feel like the regular feather shuttle which easily gets carried away by the wind. Also, do not expect to do any drop shot at the front near the net. It is hard to predict where how it tumbles. This new AirShuttle is good for rallying and smashing, which is what all my kids want to do. Highly recommended for outdoor activity, especially when your whole family is staying at home all the time and cannot go out to do any activity. Try it out. It is really fun.
