Friday, April 27, 2012 Head Speed Pro Lite Brings Fast To Comfort

Head Speed Pro Lite BlackYou don’t often hear much about Head’s line of tennis shoes but with all the upgrades made to the new Speed Pro Lite, don’t be surprised to see a few more at your nearby courts. Cutting the weight of the original Speed Pro by 12 percent, this Lite version comes in at a more comfortable 14 ounces (in size 10) without sacrificing much in terms of cushion and stability.

The biggest part of that cushioning comes from a carryover from the original Speed Pro, Head’s CXG Comfort Grid and Vi-Pod heel insert that acts as a shock absorber for your leg. In order to answer concerns of the player, Head overhauled the midsole and outsoles to give players what they wanted, a faster response and a low-to-the-ground feel.

One thing to note with the Head Speed Pro Lite is that this shoe has a wide fit with a medium arch support. The Head Radial Contact outsole is designed to promote traction and flexibility while a HyBrasion rubber offers increased protection for toe draggers.

Head also offers a six-month outsole durability guarantee on the Speed Pro Lite, so expect plenty of durability from this shoe. Fans of the Speed Pro that enjoyed the comfort should enjoy the quicker response of this updated version.
