Wilson reveals new ULTRA tennis racquet
Wilson has released a new high performance racket franchise called ULTRA. Wilson developed the ULTRA collection for the All-Courter, or player that hits from all corners of the court, who seeks a racket that is easy to swing, yet provides strong power and offers great maneuverability and comfort. Wilson Advisory Staff Member and #16 ATP ranked player Feliciano Lopez will debut the ULTRA on tour in 2016.
“As we visited courts all over the world to talk with adult players
about what they needed from a racket, our Wilson Labs team quickly
realized versatility, power and ease were key,” said Hans-Martin Reh,
General Manager of Wilson Racquet Sports. “For our athletes, the result is a racket
that is easy to handle, feels effortless with every stroke, and yet is
very, very powerful.”
The ULTRA racket features octagon geometry inside the frame and rounded geometry outside the frame. This innovative frame design was inspired by Wilson’s new, cutting-edge BURN® FST racket geometry, which allows players to swing faster with less effort. The racket’s frame is complemented by premium High Performance Carbon Fiber to deliver power in every stroke. The racket is also lightweight and its Cushion Foam handle offers optimal shock absorption for comfort.
The ULTRA franchise consists of four racket models: 97, 100, 103S and 108.
The ULTRA 97 combines the precision from a mid-plus headsize with easy power. This racket is smooth and its forgiving feel makes it perfect for both the advanced singles and doubles player.
With Spin Effect™ Technology creating explosive spin and High Performance Carbon Fiber providing tons of power, the ULTRA 103S makes the game easier for a wide range of playing styles.
The ULTRA 108 is designed for the All-Courter who is just starting out to those who have mastered basic tennis skills; it is ideal for the doubles player. This racket features a more traditional rounded frame geometry. It has a large oversize head and a big, comfortable sweetspot to provide high power.
The ULTRA is the second All-Courter collection to emerge from Wilson’s PlayerID system.
