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.
Power Rib is an enhanced racket throat geometry at a crucial bending and twisting area of the frame. This provides greater stability and stiffness that result in more power and increased directional accuracy.
To better understand how CV technology could aid performance tennis players Wilson collaborated with the University of Minnesota's School of Kinesiology. The School conducted a study with competitive collegiate players men and women to determine if playing with a Wilson racket with CV delivered meaningful benefits. Study results showed that athletes playing with a Wilson tennis racket with CV experienced less muscle fatigue and more energy particularly in late sets or long training sessions and as a result showed improved control over their shots and quicker recovery after training and matches.
The Heritage collection has evolved to feature a new set of styles for the start of the season. The Heritage offerings continue to utilize the brand’s Iconic red white and navy palette with archival design details like stripes color blocking and pleats. Classic silhouettes feel ultra-now with pieces such as the loose layering practice tank slim fit pant and striped pleated skort. Updated proportions include a long cropped fit on the Heritage Jacket and fresh details like a large FILA outline print. The collection’s premium plus jersey fabrications make for premier texture throughout. The Heritage styles will be worn by FILA players including Karolina Pliskova currently ranked #6 on the WTA Tour.
