Years of engineering and design have gone into creating the New GBX1 collection. This new line of racquets has been improved to give you more stability at the head, incredible power and durability you can count on. This racquet will prove to be the best racquet Gearbox has ever developed.
Gearbox delivers sound technologies without gimmicks.
All of the following Gearbox technologies are what makes your GBX1 racquet exceptional:
PATENTED SOLID HEAD TECHNOLOGY (US Patent No. 7,867,428 B2)
Our patented Solid Head Technology is achieved by compressing graphite to create a concave shape on the upper portion of the racquet head effectively doubling the wall thickness without having to add material. This concave shape and doubled wall thickness significantly increases power, rigidity and strength, all while keeping the racquet light and maneuverable.
C3 POWER GROOVE
A single groove extends the entire length of the racquet down to the throat area. The C3 Power Groove creates three concave shapes in the structure of the racquet.
Creates a larger hitting surface area, increases the overall size of the “sweet spot” and provides impact resistance at the head giving the racquet more Strength
DOUBLE RADIAL CONCAVE
Expands the main strings and cross strings to their maximum possible distance resulting in superior Power and Control
Increases overall main strings length providing more Power and Control
These three concave shapes in combination work synergistically to maximize Power, Control and racquet Strength. The C3 Power Groove also increases string deflection to its maximum distance resulting in exceptional Power.
MAXIMIZED SWEET SPOT
C3 Power Groove enlarges the size of the overall string bed, giving the racquet a massive “sweet spot” for more Power and Control.
Parallel ridges run the exterior length of the Solid Graphite Head improving in-plane frame stiffness and reducing deformation. More energy is returned to the ball for superior power and accuracy.
VIBRATION CONTROL SYSTEM
Exclusive adjustable rubber damper system for a customized feel. Contract to eliminate vibration or stretch to increase string vibration feel.
POWER STRING BED
Unique Power String Bed is designed to accommodate the use of thinner gauge string which is ideal for improved Power, Control and overall performance.
