HEAD has given its Speed range of tennis rackets a complete overhaul with a striking new design and updated technology. The series incorporates HEAD’s updated GRAPHENE XT technology, which makes the centre of the racket 30% stronger.
The Jnr edition is one inch shorter than the Tour racket, with a length of 26 inches, and weighs in at just 250 grams, ideal for budding young Djokovics.
The Speed Jnr comes with the next stage of HEAD’s revolutionary technology, GRAPHENE XT. Now 30% stronger, it offers enhanced weight distribution, perfect manoeuvrability and a faster swing.
Discovered in 2004, Graphene consists of a single two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms. This material has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel, which makes it the ultimate substance for creating new HEAD tennis racket frames with exceptional properties. Graphene technology allows for the first time an optimal redistribution of weight in HEAD rackets. Through the use of Graphene in the shaft, the weight in the middle part of the racket can be reduced. Instead, weight can be shifted from the racket shaft to more functionally relevant areas in the tip and grip. This unique construction provides players with an unmatched manoeuvrability and an increased swing weight. In other words, a racket with Graphene is easier to swing and enables even more powerful shots.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
