Head YouTek Racquet Technology


Head combines superior technologies within the YouTek family to perfectly match your individual needs.

Utilizing d3o a smart material which possesses abnormal behavior characteristics, more specifically under dynamic loading or impact, integrated within the lay-up and shaft of the racquet, new d3o offers players new possibilities.

d3o can sense on high-speed impacts (aggressive shots), the smart molecules lock together within nanoseconds and dramatically increase the stiffness of the whole racquet frame to provide maximum power. On slow-speed impacts (slice or drop shots), the d3o molecules absorb the impact to provide a softer touch for better feel.

Passing shots are even harder and drop shots more precise, rewarding your spontaneity and supporting your courageous decisions.
