SPEED fans are in for a special treat as HEAD celebrates the 10-year anniversary of its most
successful racquet silo with a special limited edition racquet, the SPEED X. Based on the
characteristics of the SPEED silo and with a luxurious new design, the SPEED X pays a special
tribute to the tennis racquet series which is endorsed by iconic tennis stars such as the 2019
Roger’s Cup Champion, Bianca Andreescu, Ashleigh Barty, Novak Djokovic, Nikoloz Basilashvili
and Fernando Verdasco.
Made for players who need the fastest racquet for their game, the SPEED X is based on the
technical specifications of the GRAPHENE 360 SPEED series. It features the Graphene 360
technology which provides greater stability and optimized energy transfer for more power,
thus more ball speed. But the true head-turner is the luxurious special design. The SPEED X
follows the asymmetric SPEED design identity but scores with a combination of glossy and
matte black and a unique radiant SPEED logo execution in gold. The SPEED X anniversary
package also comes with a matching dampener and an extra set of LYNX strings making it the
perfect collector’s item for SPEED fans and design enthusiasts alike.
The SPEED X is available in Canada in the Mid Plus edition in very limited quantities. The
racquet will be available at participating retailers and online starting August 22, 2019.
