Head MxG


MxG is the fusion of Magnesium and Graphene Touch to give you a balance of power and control like no other racquet. The MxG's injection molded Magnesium Bridge is precision formed and provides ultimate stability at a very low weight.
Power Under Control

  • The magnesium bridge is specifically designed for longer, free moving strings which provide a much larger sweet-spot and more power.

  • At the same time the solid magnesium bridge keeps the hoop from deforming and offers you total control on every shot.

  • Other racquets with free moving main strings have bridges made of hollow carbon fiber that do not provide this rigidity and thus have much less control.

Head Adaptive Racquets

The Adaptive Tuning kit lets you adjust your racquet to suit your own individual wishes and playing requirements.  This innovative kit consists of:

  • Four grommet sets.  A light and heavy 16x19 and a light and heavy 16x16.  The light 16x19 comes with the racquet; the other three sets come in the kit.
    The heavy weighs 5 grams (0.2 ounce) more.

  • Three spacer rings for additional length.
    Each Spacer ring is 5mm (0.2 inch) long.  Total extra length 15mm (a bit more that 1/2 inch).

  • One heavy end cap that clicks into place.
    The heavy end cap weighs 10 grams (0.4 ounce)

  • Storage case with instructions

Adaptive kit is extra cost and only fits Adaptive compatible racquets.  Currently the Speed Adaptive and Instinct Adaptive

The Head web site has a very good information on the adaptive kit.   http://www.head.com  On Head site, click racquet for details or click "About Adaptive" in upper right for installation instructions.

Head Adaptive String Pattern

Different side grommets for 16x19 or 16x16 (spin) string pattern

ASP, the adaptive string pattern technology features two exchangeable grommet sets. You can choose between 16/16 for more spin and power or 16/19 for more control.

more spin
more control
Head Graphene Touch Technology

  • Graphene XT, world's strongest and lightest material. (Please see below.)  Stabilizes the Yoke area of the racquet for a crisp and precise hit.

  • The addition of Kraibon,  a specially developed visco-elastic polymer, gives improved shock absorption and exceptional touch WITHOUT compromising the performance of Graphene XT.

  • Kraibon is developed by the Kraiburg Company in Germany.  See www.kraibon.com


Head Graphene XT Technology

Head re-engineered the application of Graphene, the world's strongest and lightest material, to make Graphene XT racquets 30% stronger than first generation Graphene.  This provides an optimized weight distribution for a faster swing and more power

Head Graphene Technology

A single two dimensional matrix of carbon items. 200 times stronger than steel

Worlds strongest and lightest material
  • Discovered in 1962 and the basis for the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics, Graphene is the ultimate material for construction of tennis racquets.  See WikiPedia.

  • The weight of the shaft, the middle part of the racquet, can be reduced.

  • Weight is shifted to the tip and grip - areas which are more relevant to play.

  • This provides unmatched maneuverability and increased swing weight.

  • In other words, Graphene makes the racquet easier to swing, easier to move into position, and enables more powerful shots.

  • Opponents will run for cover.


Head Innegra Technology

Lightweight, vibration damping, long lasting

Created by Innegrity LLC, the low density, high modulus Innegra fiber is integrated along with the D30 into the graphite matrix. Similar to how the BLX basalt fibers work for Wilson, Innegra fiber dampens vibration making the racquet much more comfortable to play with.

The fibers were originally developed to strengthen materials without making them significantly heavier. In addition Innegra fiber will increase the longevity of their frames, making them playable for a longer period of time.
Head D30 Technology (youTek)

World's First Dynamic Material Tennis Racquet

D30 is a specially engineered material made with intelligent molecules. They flow with you as you move but on shock lock together to absorb the impact energy.

In a tennis racquet, this means that for soft shots, the racquet can have a soft touch feel; but can lock up for ultimate power on the hard shots.  This really works as shown by the success of top 10 pros like Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, and Robin Soderling.

Head Teflon Grommet Technology

Grommets with Teflon friction-reducing polymer

Friction is a force that holds back the movement of a string when it comes into contact with a grommet. The new HEAD Grommets with Teflon® friction reducing polymer creates a self-lubricating effect in the base material, allowing the strings to slide through the grommets with nearly no friction for less energy loss, more power, and a bigger sweet spot.

Head MicroGel Technology

Rock Solid Feel and Touch:

With the lowest density of any material, HEAD MicroGel™ is a revolutionary new silicone-based material. HEAD has combined MicroGel ™ with stiff and strong carbon composite fibers to create a racquet with incredible responsive qualities. On ball impact, MicroGel™ uniformly distributes the impact load around the frame to provide the most rock-solid feel and superior touch ever achieved in the game.

What Happens During Ball Impact:
MicroGel™ deforms and compresses, absorbing and dispersing the impact to the entire frame, then returns quickly to its original shape.
Head LiquidMetal Technology
Liquidmetal® technology
The Liquidmetal material is applied to four strategic areas of the racquet’s head and is the only material that utilizes all the energy your swing generates. Due to its liquid atomic structure, no energy is lost on ball impact.

Liquidmetal® makes the difference
The secret of Liquidmetal’s performance is its liquid atomic structure. Compared to conventional metals, it offers advantages that are far beyond today’s racquet technology.

Liquidmetal®: The unique Liquidmetal atomic structure does not deform on impact, resulting in ultimate energy return.

The benefit to every player: 29% more power
The unique Liquidmetal atomic structure is 2 1/2 times stronger and delivers 29% more power than conventional carbon fiber or titanium

Why? Liquidmetal technology efficiently utilizes the pure energy of ball impact, making the full energy available for maximum power return. Liquidmetal® - Pure Energy. Perfect Power.™
