With the new shipment of Dunlop’s Biomimetic racquets and the amazing performance they suggest, let’s take a closer look at the technology and how it works for you.

The concept of Biomimetics in science is the study of nature and how we can utilize the natural ebb and flow of life around us in the technology we use in our daily lives. The oldest example of this is the aerodynamic shape of the airplane taking after a bird in flight. Another, not so recent example is Velcro, modeled after Gecko tack.

Dunlop Biomimetics takes the billions of years of evolution and natural selection and harnesses it into a sleek, stealth and effective weapon on the court.

The Cx Technology in in all Dunlop Biomimetic tennis racquets means that special consideration has been taken when considering the Cx factor, or the Drag Coefficient. The tapered beam cuts through air, reducing drag.

The anatomic construction of Dunlop Biomimetic racquets can be seen at the base of the racquet’s throat and imitates the ways in which natural bone structures move and respond to stress.

The two-part Biomimetic grommet system is made up of 3Dom pods that imitate cartilage and surround the actual (anti-friction) grommets. The pods provide cushioning, dampening and greater movement much like cartilage does for our skeletal system. The anti-friction grommets are modeled after the freedom of movement exhibited by sand sharks. Tiny ridges prevent the racquet string from digging into the grommets, providing more freedom of movement and additional power.

Dunlop Biomimetic tennis racquets have already been tested by the fiercest player in the world, Mother Nature. Take thousands of years of natural selection with you next time you step out on the court and show how natural selection works for you.
