This new innovation created in collaboration with French tech outfit PIQ which is also working on bringing more sensor based analytics to other sports like golf and skiing is part of two big trends. The obvious trend is the data driven way to understand your game. As Genie Bouchard said at Friday’s product launch at the Manhattan Plaza Racquet Club “people can tell you when you’re hitting the ball but there’s nothing more accurate than technology.” The metrics she is most interested in are where in her stroke she typically makes contact with the ball and the speed of her arm on groundstrokes.
Two models in the 2017 Ultra line feature Countervail (CV) technology (the Ultra 100 CV and Ultra 105S CV) which is exclusive to Wilson performance rackets. CV is an integrated frame technology that minimizes vibration without sacrificing performance and feel. According to a University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology study** tennis players using a racket with CV experienced up to 30 percent less vibrational energy from the racket and as a result of less fatigue 40 percent more control over their shots. In addition to maximizing player energy CV shortens recovery time after matches.
