SUMMUM The Summum of the padel rackets, is based in four great innovations to create the most complete and highest level padel racket in Varlion and in the world:
New long handle. The handle is 14'50 cm longer (the usual ones are between 11 and 12'50 cm), providing the player with more space to handle.
New Wings Diffuser. Designed under the silhouette of the airplane wing profile. We have also added a turbulator, used on the aircrafts and F-1 cars wings for a better control of the airflow. The result is a faster, precise and controlled airflow through the wings diffuser, increasing the speed of it 27%, compared with the old diffuser.
A larger core. This area now is 1.5 cm longer. Also with the new design, there are more holes than before (68 before; 76 now) and with a distribution and positioned to make bigger the sweet spot, giving to the racket a perfect esthetic.
More height and surface in the hexagonal texture. The new higher and larger hexagonal texture increases the effect of the ball even more.
HEXAGON FRAME Hexagonal frame whose to give a greater rigidity, strength and aerodynamics to the racket. It's registered and exclusive of Varlion.
TEXTREME RHOMBUS CARRERA 25 Fabric produced by a carbon yarn with a treatment by tow spread. A system developed and registered by Oxean Co (Sweden). This fabric is de carbon fiber fabric for the sport industry and F-1 cars/Teams but with a development and production under the characteristics each customer wants. TeXtreme closed an exclusive deal with Varlion in 2017 to produce and develop our own carbon fabrics for our Summum, Super Pro and Pro lines: the TeXtreme Rhombus 25, TeXtreme Rhombus 15 and TeXtreme Quattro, an agreement between two leader Co into the Sports Industry in the world. Is more resistant and compact working in same weight level and with it we reach a very good new touch in our padel rackets Summum and Super Pro of new collection.
TEMPERATURAS The temperature has a direct influence in the technical level of the padel racket, changing its hardness or flexibility; this causes our game to change and be unstable. To minimize this problem, Varlion launched the same racket with two different constructions, suggesting you to use one to play depending the temperature you have at the moment you will play:
With high temperatures, the materials become softer, especially the foam or EVA of the core, changing the performance of the padel rackets. Therefore, the padel rackets with the red thermometer incorporate materials with lower elasticity, so your performance will be more near to the level you had with the other racket with lower temperature, using the rackets suggested to play with temperatures over 25ºC / 77º F.
With low temperatures, the opposite happens: the materials become harder, gaining control, but losing considerable flexibility and power. To get a good performance you must choose the padel rackets with the blue thermometer, suggested to play with temperatures under 25ºC / 77º F, since they incorporate materials with more elasticity.
GRADUAL HOLES Drilling technology using three sizes of holes making them smaller in the central area (10mm), medium in the middle as we move away from the center and approach the frame (11.5mm) and bigger in the perimeter area closer to the frame (13mm), to balance the excessive flexibility of the core in the middle with the low one near the frame. It allows to have a greater homogeneity in the shots and an increase the shock-resistance of the core.
Self-adhesive bumper produced by an injection mold in TPU with low hardness to absorb shocks and friction. It is fixed on the padel racket’s frame by an adhesive material, and is not necessary to fix it drilling the frame. With it, you will not have possible vibrations of the bumper and a full join between it and the frame.
ECONAKED Technology based in an ecological design (hence the word "Eco") thanks to the reduction in more than 75% of the use of paints and solvents in the decoration and finished of padel rackets. On the other hand, the word "naked" refers to the padel racket are shown as they come out from the mould, so the consumer can see 90/95% of the fabrics with which the padel racket it is made.
WINGS DIFUSOR Technology developed to improve the air flow trough the heart of the padel racket.
Increased player speed in fast movements like the smash and in medium shots.
A better regularity in the shots, making the trajectory of the ball more controlled constant, thanks to avoid turbulences conventional in a normal padel racket with open heart.
Its design is inspired by the diffuser included for Brawn GP Formula 1 Team on the back and plain bottom of the car.
New Super Pro Summum round-shaped padel racket by Varlion that favour control over power. Made for players wants and needs control.
Brand new Summum padel rackets are a new concept where all their features have been optimized to the maximum. Manufactured by a reinforced carbon fiber bidirectional tube, and a 38 mm EVA Hypersoft laminated core with plain fabric of Carrera 25 TeXtreme Rhombus carbon fiber, whose mechanical and strength characteristics are better to the carbon fiber fabrics used up to now. Reinforced in the core with 224 Carbon fiber fabric. Preg with Varlion exclusive VAR-FLEX epoxy resin -to get the highest elasticity and resistance- covered by a dioxide titanium layer.
Among the innovations, even the new fabrics, we have:
A longer handle, to give to the player more space to catch the padel racket even to play with two handles. 11,5 cms LW Difusor Carrera and 14,5 cms LW Summum.
A core 1 cm longer.
A new drill design, with 76 instead the normal 68 to optimize and increase the sweet spot. By this way, the arm will have faster movements for the better air flow.
A new hexagonal texture over relief in the core to reach better effects in the ball and shots.
A new Wings Diffuser optimized with an improvement in the air flow of 27% to get a better precision and control.
Different padel rackets for different temperatures. They have a big influence in the performance of the padel racket. Causes more or less elasticity in the padel rackets cores. To minimize this effect, Varlion offers the same pádel racket model with two different constructions. LW Summum with thermometer in red for 25º/77ºF upper temperatures and LW Summum with thermometer in blue for 25º/77ºF lower temperatures. By this way, the player when the temperature up or down to mantein his performance he must chose the right padel racket
New adhesive injected bumper. Developed and produced by a low hardness TPU injection mould to absorb shocks and scrapes. This new bumper is fixed on the frame by an adhesive material without necessity to drill the frame. Possible vibrations of the bumper are eliminated and get a perfect assemble between the frame and the interior face of the protector.
New mould with a bigger hexagonal texture to get better effects.
Econaked cosmetic, characterized by paint and solvents reduction. With this cosmetic, you get a lighter and ecological padel racket, without camouflage. You can see the real manufacturing.
Hexagon frame, Difusor, ShockOut dampeners and injected self-adhesive protector are utility models registered at the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office and are therefore the exclusive property and use of Varlion.
