OVER TWO YEARS IN THE MAKING, PROKENNEX UNVEILS THE KINETIC PRO SPEED….THE NEW GOLD STANDARD
Engineered for maneuverability with wind resistant edgeless construction and thin core technology, the paddle is lightning in your hand. Built for quickness and reflex enhancement, the paddle boasts unparalleled tip speed. With the Kinetic shock absorbing system, touch, feel, and kitchen play are all enhanced bringing the best of both worlds to the Pro Speed.
Optimizes dwell time; Renowned for Eliminating Harmful Shock & Vibration for Unparalleled Arm Protection. Impregnated within each ProKennex paddle is the Kinetic System. Tungsten beads within the immovable chambers dampen and reduce shock and vibration keeping your arm safe. According to MIT Sports Dynamic Laboratory the "Vibration dampening ratio enhancement is 43%", "Power zone enlargement is about 12 to 15%" and "Shock reduction is better than 20%".
The core's tungsten produces a quiet sound, almost as if you were shaking sand, and is surrounded by a durable polymer honeycomb.
THIN CORE TECHNOLOGY
Uses polypropylene honeycomb matrix with high impact, quiet polymer.
Aerodynamic Efficiency for Maximum Tip Speed yielding fastest reflex response to hot volleys.
INTEGRATED CARBON-CAP PERIMETER DESIGN
For enhanced structural performance, creating a solid feel without losing touch.
PROPRIETARY 7-LAYER COATING
Complex Composite, Including Specially Treated Soft Skin with Spin-Grab Feature, and Unique Carbon/Fiberglass PK Release Epoxy/Resin System.
The Prokennex Kinetic technology uses micro-bearings and Newtonian physics to take the ball energy (shock, torque and vibration) and absorb it into the Kinetic chambers. After impact, a shock wave is released into the paddle from the ball and is immediately absorbed into the kinetic chambers in the paddle virtually eliminating vibration to the arm. This energy transfer shields the player from harmful impact forces making for enhanced touch, feel, and kitchen play.
The Kinetic Pro Speed Paddle isn't only made to protect your health; it's also a delight on the courts. It features a 7-layer coating on the face atop both composite and graphite materials which lends itself to powerful hits and grips pickleballs for extra spin.
Approved For Use In USAPA Sanctioned Tournament
Disclaimer: Due to high-performance aerodynamic edgeless-construction, chipping and scratches occur during normal wear and tear. We advise using our training tapes that come included, wrapped with each paddle purchase.
My paddle came with tape. What is it for?
As soon as you get your new paddle, we highly recommend applying the included training tape right away. The two strips of tape we provide are to protect the upper edges of the paddle from court surface scratching. We recommend placing them in the 10 and 2 position along the edges on the paddle. If you need to redo your taping at a future point, any generic electrical tape works just fine.
It's important to note that cosmetic wear and tear on this paddle does not have negative effects on the playability of the paddle. Whereas most paddles become dysfunctional once edges get damaged, the Prokennex will endure with minimal change to play.
