The intermediate user friendly Speed S gets some tweaks in the form of more stability and increased power, but these changes do not sacrifice the versatility that this racquet has become known for.
Head adds their latest version of Graphene technology, Graphene 360, into key area's of the racquet frame to increase stability and since the Speed S is on the lighter end of the weight spectrum the added stability is definitely welcome. The inclusion of Graphene 360 also boosts power slightly without sacrificing much on the control front. Smartly, Head has not changed most of the key specs of the racquet. The 100 square inch head remains, as does the 10.1 ounce weight. Both key factors in making the Speed S so appealing to progressing intermediate players in the first place. The slightly thicker 25mm beam width also remains unchanged and will assist weaker players generate pace on their shots. This version of the Speed S is slightly stiffer than the previous version (69 vs 66 RA), however thanks to the shock dampening of the Kraibon material that Head has carried over from the Graphene Touch Speed S, the 360 Speed S still feels quite comfortable. The 16x19 string pattern offers up plenty in the way of spin potential.
The Speed S continues to be the most user friendly member of the Speed family of racquets and one of the best choices for intermediate players looking to take their game to the next level.

Graphene Touch 360:
Technology providing greater stability and optimized energy transfer for more power, thus more ball speed.
Now, the groundbreaking technology gets the ultimate update: the re-engineered Graphene Touch combines the power of Graphene with improved shock absorption upon impact resulting in an incredible touch and great sound. From the beginning the original innovative Graphene technology delivered increased power and maneuverability through optimized weight distribution. Throughout the years this revolutionary technology helped a big number of HEAD players win important victories and tournaments. With the perfect power level taken care of, HEAD started to re-engineer the world’s strongest yet lightest material and added a unique shock-absorbing material to the frame construction. The result is less shock thanks to faster vibration reduction after ball impact and an unparalleled touch providing consumers with even more wow moments. All this without compromising on the power level of Graphene that players and consumers around the world have come to appreciate. In other words: power never felt so good.
Dimensional Weight: 1.0 kg
Dimensional weight, also known as volumetric weight, is an estimated weight that is calculated from the length, width, height and actual weight of a package. It also takes into consideration oversize/fuel surcharges. It is not representative of the actual weight of a package. We use this estimated weight as the basis to our shipping rate calculations.
