TECNIFIBRE - Carboflex X-Top 125 Squash Racket
The Tecnifibre Carboflex X-Top 125 Squash Racket!
Used on the PSA World Tour by Mohamed El Shorbagy.
The X-Top range is equipped with the same technologies that made its predecessor – the Airshaft range – so popular. The Airshaft section provides a sharpened frame geometry for more dynamic response and greater swing speed. The shaft design is strengthened through X-Arms technology for greater racquet stability and improving aerodynamics whilst adding minimal weight. There are 12 enlarged string holes at specific locations on the frame (3, 9, and 12 o’clock) to encourage the movement of the strings, improving the tolerance of the racquet for an enhanced sweet spot, allowing the player to generate more power, and increasing the effect/cut the player can put on the ball.
- The top bumper removed for more power and playability
- X-Arms technology to improve racket stability
- Pre-strung in Tecnifibre’s latest premium squash string – Dynamix VP
- Designed with Mohamed El Shorbagy
The Carboflex range has a revolutionary mono-shaft design that provides the player with the perfect combination of power and control. The Carboflex range has continuously been improved and now in its seventh generation, we have one of the greatest evolutions! With inspiration coming from professional players Tecnifibre aims to make it the best mono-shaft racquet on the market today.
The 2022 Carboflex range gets its name from the breakthrough innovation from Tecnifibre called X-Top, inspired by Mohamed El Shorbagy. A patented technology allows the removal of the bumper’s plastic inactive material at the top of the racquet and instead uses 100% active fibers. No bumper = More active fibers = 100% performance! More Resistance, More Speed, More Power, More Reactivity, More Playability.
Aramid fibers (the same materials used in bulletproof vests) are used at the top of the racquet for maximum shock resistance, along with a PTFE (Teflon) treatment increasing the sliding on wall/floor contact for maximum abrasion resistance. The new mix of materials provides even more resistance than a traditional bumper.
With no bumper and integrated grommets, a perfectly sleek frame design allows for greater racquet acceleration and better gliding on the wall for extraordinary swing speed. The removal of the plastic bumper also reduces vibrations for more comfort.
A unique benefit of Tecnifibre squash racquets is that they come pre-strung in a Tecnifibre string. Tecnifibre has been at the forefront of squash strings since 1980 and has been used by the world’s top players both then and now. The Carboflex range (excluding the junior racquet) comes pre-strung in Tecnifibre’s latest premium squash string – Dynamix VP. Polyamide fibers are upgraded with a vapor process that steams the material for higher elasticity, allowing the player to generate more power. This combined with Tecnifibre’s exclusive PU 400 production, which gives the string a 400% elasticity factor, makes Dynamix VP Tecnifibre’s most powerful squash string.
The Carboflex X-Top range is designed with an elegant all-white design with eye-catching colors on the brand name and the exciting new X-Top technology. 3D decals on the shaft give the racquet a premium, tactile finish.
