New for 2012/13 Power Surge technology has been added to the Ion Galaxy squash racquet - making it stiffer and with less vibrations, to deliver a more powerful racquet with even more control, for advanced players.
Along with the new frame design, the Ion Galaxy Power Surge is now strung with Ashaway SuperNick XL Micro!
Materials and Technologies used:
Power Surge: Developed with David Palmer, drives the power of the swing towards the racquet head while cutting vibration. It can be seen on the sides of the shaft of Power Surge models.
XMG (Extreme Modulus Graphite): Is a top tier standard of carbon graphite fibres: Offers lower vibration, higher durability and faster frame recovery during impact.
16K HYPER TENSILE FIBRE: (new in 2011) weaves together 16,000 individual strands for more structural strength and durability.
NCT (Nano-Crystalline Technology): All the Ion racquets use Nano-Crystalline Technology (NCT) as an additive to the polymer structure of the graphite frame, for reinforcement at key stress points while allowing for fine-tuning of the weight and balance.
Power of 6: models have been fine-tuned for optimum performance by first analyzing the frame under stress at 6 points, from the handle to the top of the head. The resulting data is then used to make further adjustments to the frame until the target specifications are achieved.
TC (BK Thermal Core Technology): Carbon graphite racquets are hollow and must be pressurized internally while being heated and cured in the mold. With the BK Thermal Core process, superheated air is forced inside the racquet so that the structure is simultaneously cured from the inside and outside for a flawless effect. This process strengthens and stabilizes the frame, eliminating irregularities and producing consistent results from one racquet to another, including greater durability and faster racquet recovery during impact.
