A lightweight frame built for optimal performance is still the hallmark of the newly redesigned HEAD Graphene XT Extreme Lite.HEAD re-engineered the application of the world’s strongest and lightest material to make their Graphene XT racquets 30%* stronger providing an optimized weight distribution for a faster swing and more power. By using graphene XT in the racquet shaft, HEAD has been able to move weight from the shaft to the tip and handle, increasing power and stability without changing overall racquet mass (more weight in the head provides greater plow through from the baseline, and more mass in the handle reduces torque and recoil).
The Extreme Lite shares many of the features that come standard with the Extreme MP in a lighter package. Weighing 9.8 ounces (strung) and having an even balance, this frame is great for beginners to intermediate players looking to move into a more playable racquet. The lightest in the Extreme family, this racquet is exceptionally maneuverable no matter where you find yourself on the court. The 100 square inch head size maintains control, while HEAD's dynamic 16x19 string pattern gives you the spin you're looking for.
Note: HEAD does not provide a cover with this racquet. Please check out our complete selection of HEAD bags.
