Murray’s new weapon: The HEAD Graphene Radical


Originally published on: 31/10/13 00:00

The latest series of Radical frames features HEAD's Graphene technology, which combines power and manoeuvrability.

The use of the lightweight graphene, which has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel, allows for the weight in the racket to be redistributed to the grip and the tip of the frame to create greater power with less effort.

"The new HEAD Graphene Radical really suits my game,” Murray said. “It gives me the power I need without compromising on my creativity on court.”

Available to buy from November 4, the Radical series feature a colourful design influenced by street art, with the MP, REV and S models available as well as Murray’s Graphene Radical Pro frame.
