Launched nearly 70 years ago, Dunlop is a major manufacturer of Tennis, Squash and Gold equipment. Dunlop is the manufacturer of some of the most popular racquets in the world. In fact, they have been chosen to be the official racket and ball partner brand of the World Squash Federation and Professional Squash Association.
Players like Ali Farag, Nick Matthew, Alison Waters and Gregory Gaultier prefer the Dunlop squash racket in most of their matches. Dunlop also seems to be the Grand Slams racket of choice as the majority of the matches have been won with Dunlop rackets than any other brand.
With a focus on research and development along with a focus on efficient materials, Dunlop continually brings in new technologies into its equipment. Below we discuss the technologies that make Dunlop squash racquets among the best in the world:
This technology reimagines the frame of a typical racquet by bringing Hyperfibre ballistic fibres into 3 and 9 o’clock positions. By doing so, the torsional stability of the racquet is significantly enhanced on off-centre impacts. This improves the control and precision of the racquet, enhancing your game.
Dunlop uses a surface inspired by the Shark’s skin to smoothen the airflow over the racquet. This has been shown to reduce drag up to 35% compared to ordinary racquets.
Dunlop racket heads are stable thanks to their oval cross-section.
Being nimble on the court is a skill every player looks for. Dunlop can now help you do this by pocketed grommets and an aerodynamic cross-section in the racket hoop. These together can increase the speed of the racket head, allowing you to reach shots faster.
Dunlop has developed a unique polymer made of microbeads of MOS2 mineral. This helps decrease the friction between grommets and strings by up to 27%, which allows for enhanced power on your shots.
