With the Graphene Touch Instinct Adaptive, Head has created a frame that is easily customisable and extremely versatile.
In its stock form (the way the racquet is shipped), the Graphene Touch Instinct Adaptive’s specs make it a racquet that will already appeal to a wide range of players from strong beginners to intermediates and even good club level players. However, the racquets true versatility comes to life with the addition of the Adaptive Tuning Kit. With the kit you will be given the choice between two different string patterns (16x16 or 16x19), 3 different lengths and a myriad of different weight and balance options. Adapting the racquet with the kit is simple and fun and allows players to see what effect these changes to the frames specifications will have on their game.
As with the other frames in the Graphene Touch Instinct line, this racquet has the addition of Kraibon in the racquets material makeup. Kraibon is a rubber compound that seamlessly bonds to the Graphene fibers to improve shock absorption and delivers "unparalleled touch" without sacrificing power.
The Graphene Touch Instinct Adaptive is a versatile racquet in its stock form and becomes even more versatile with the addition of the Adaptive Tuning Kit.

Now, the ground-breaking 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.
