The new Graphene Radical XTR is the most accessible racket in the Radical range, slightly longer than usual at 27.2 inches, with an oversized head and weighing in at 280 grams. If you’re looking to get into the Radical style of play, the XTR is a great option.
Originally created to match the outlandish style of Andre Agassi, the HEAD Radical was one of the first tennis rackets to emphasise a risk-taking, aggressive type of play. Now used by Andy Murray, that same philosophy endures in the modern Radical range, with the latest rackets using new advances in technology to improve multiple aspects of performance.
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.
