Like past generations, the Speed Lite is sure to be a hit with beginner and intermediate players that are looking for a fast swinging, lightweight racquet that they can grow with. The Speed S is perfect for the up-and-coming new player who wants the latest technologies in an easy-to-handle package. The Speed Lite is also a great choice for junior players that are making the move into an adult length frame.
The Speed Lite is available in a new design with an asymmetric combination of matte and glossy white and glossy black. It comes with the new Graphene 360+ technology, a combination of Graphene 360's energy transfer and innovative spiralfibers for an enhanced flex and clean impact feel. The Speed Series is endorsed by Novak Djokovic.
The raw specs on this version haven't been altered from the previous model, so this new frame should feel right at home in the hands of current Speed Lite players. Thanks to the updated technologies, players should also find added comfort and energy return on a full swing. Weighing in at 9.3 ounces (265 grams) unstrung, the Speed Lite is extremely maneuverable from all areas of the court. It's lightweight design also means that players will be able to generate racquet head speed with ease and get balls deep into their opponent's side of the court. It's lightly thicker beam-width will provide additional stability and easier access to power even though it's on the lighter side of the series. Like the previous version, the placement of Graphene 360 in the racquet's shaft as well as the racquet's head at 3, 9 and 12 o'clock, strengthens the racquet in these key areas and contributes to enhanced stability and power. With the addition of Spiralfibers in the lower portion of the hoop, Head has enhanced the overall feel of the frame with better energy transfer, more flex and a cleaner impact feel.

Photos used contain images of strings for illustration purposes. Adult tennis racquets are unstrung unless otherwise noted or stringing services have been selected above. Brand logo stencils are not applied by default with stringing services. If you request brand logo stencils, please note that a stencil is painted onto the strings within a brand's stencil and may wear off over time - this is how stencils are applied on tour. Depending on the string you select, the stencil paint application fullness, colour and visibility may vary.
Adult racquets generally do not come with covers. To protect your racquet, we recommend getting a racquet bag.
Adult Racquets Sizing Information
To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.
If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
