Designers understand a racquet as a Single Energy Source (Mass). And the best way to improve a racquet’s performance is to improve the energy exchange between ball and racquet. There’s just one really big barrier to improving that exchange. The Laws of Physics:
Kinetic Energy = ½ Mass X Velocity2
This means that, no matter how a Designer may work around the edges, there is still only ½ of a racquet’s Mass that can ever be harnessed to create a desirable Kinetic Force at impact. And the lighter the racquet, the less Kinetic Force is available for that crucial exchange. This creates constant and unavoidable trade offs for designers. (e.g. efforts to enhance maneuverability result in the degradation of stability.) The Kinetic System overcomes this Design barrier by introducing a completely independent, Second Energy Source into the frame; precision designed to load and unload its additional energy at precisely the right moment.
Think of the Kinetic System as a Twin Energy Output System that allows Designers the freedom to improve one performance parameter without detriment to other desirable properties. With Kinetic System, Pro Kennex has just discovered a way to move beyond the design limits of a mono mass racquet, to significantly improve performance while leaving the Laws of Physics intact.
SPIRAL TECH CARBON
To remove weight while maintaining strength, and to secure Kinetic Chambers within the frame, Pro Kennex created a new evolution of graphite material called Spiral Tech Carbon. It is a unique, space age blend of fibers, within an aerospace Nano Resin Epoxy medium. Traditional graphite allows voids between the layers; whereas in Spiral Tech Carbon, the graphite layers completely cling to each other, combining with Nano Resin Epoxy, which maximizes playability and delivers the needed strength, power and control.
COUNTER BALANCE SYSTEM (CB)
Dual Properties Handle Technology. Pro Kennex utilizes their patented KINETIC COMFORT CAP to achieve a dynamic balance (or Counter Balance) that promotes Control and Feel during play, while adding another layer of arm protection. The Mass Displacement Chamber in the handle attenuates the remaining vibration that results from the initial energy exchange between ball and racquet. The engineering name for this is NonObstructive Damping Technique, or NOPD. While the Kinetic System provides the most efficient energy transfer in tennis, any harmful vibrations that do escape the secondary Kinetic energy pulse get swallowed up by our Damping Chamber before reaching the hand.
