Head Youtek IG Speed Lite (Model #230681)

Updated for 2011, the YouTek IG Speed Lite is the lightest racquet in the YOUTEK Speed series. A great tweener providing the perfect combination of power, maneuverability, control and feel. It's the excellent racquet for players with a moderate swing style. HEAD has continued with the d3o technology in this frame. The d3o allows you to have a soft touch on needed feel shots (ex: dropshot) but also stiffens the racquet when needing a little extra stability for hard hit balls.

The IG Speed Lite uses a DuPont Teflon grommet system that reduces friction. Less friction means maintaining more of the strings energy, and results in a slight increase in power.

Ideally suited for players with moderate to full strokes.
Recommended for the 3.5+ NTRP level players.


YOUTEK Technology: The Speed series is equipped with HEAD's new YOUTEK, which combines different technologies to allows the racquet to adapt to every shot you hit.

d3o Technology: The d3o™ technology is able to sense the needs of the players during different strokes (it's able to adapt to you). on high-speed impacts (aggressive shots), the smart molecules lock together within nanoseconds and dramatically increase the stiffness of the whole racquet frame to provide maximum power. On slow-speed impacts (slice or drop shots), the d3o™ molecules absorb the impact to provide a softer touch for better feel. What does this mean to a tennis player? Passing shots are even harder and drop shots more precise, rewarding your spontaneity and supporting your courageous decisions.

Innegra: Innegra is the world's lightest high performance fiber in the industry today. HEAD's advanced carbon composite technology combined with Innegra™ forms an extremely tough fiber. The new high composite structure is integrated into the racquet for shock absorption and improved stability. Vibration at ball impact is reduced by up to 17% for unmatched control and precision and is easier on your arm. HEAD's new hybrid-composite structure considerably extends the performance of your HEAD racquet at the highest level, giving you consistent performance over the entire life of your frame.

HEAD Grommets with Teflon friction reducing polymer:
The Teflon® friction reducing polymer provides a low-friction contact surface, enabling the strings to slide through the grommets with nearly no friction. Moving without resistance, the strings maintain their energy during ball impact, providing more power.

During the stringing process, the Teflon® friction reducing polymer in the grommet system allows more even and consistent tension. The HEAD grommet system takes this friction away allowing a more true tension providing larger sweetspot!
