What is CYBERSHAPE?
Optimized hitting area and larger sweet spot
Our research has shown that for the majority of players their optimal hitting area is on the top half of the blade. So we’ve optimized the hitting area so that it is larger in comparison to the traditional shape of the blade’s upper half and slightly smaller on the lower half to maintain the blade’s balance.
In collaboration with the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), we have also tested the vibration properties of Cybershape, i.e. how the blade moves. The tests have shown that Cybershapehas a larger sweet spot placed higher up on the blade than a standard shape which gives more power in your strokes without losing control of the ball.
Customized hitting area for cross court play
Since the ball usually strikes the top half of the racket (both backhand and forehand), that's exactly where Cybershapereally stands out. One of the distinctive features of the Cybershapedesign is that in your return and short game you get closer to the surface of the table by all of 6.5 cm of the hitting area, compared to 2.5 cm for a round blade. This gives you more of a chance of getting to short serves and returns.
With Cybershape'sunique shape, it is also easier to get the ball placement on the hitting area you desire while serving. Thanks to Cybershape’sangles, you automatically have six corners as a basis to aim for, depending on how much and what type of spin you want.
