Maxima, an offspring conceived in 2020 through the amalgamation of the LW (a circular configuration birthed in 1995) and the Avant (a teardrop design established in 2009), stands as a testament to innovation in racket craftsmanship. This marriage births a racket with a fusion of rounded and teardrop shapes, meticulously tailored for players craving precision in their gameplay without sacrificing power.

A groundbreaking feature of this model lies in the incorporation of Radio technology, marking a paradigm shift in the production, durability, and performance of padel rackets. Through meticulous engineering, we have achieved the distinction of producing the first racket emerging from its mold pre-drilled. This achievement owes its success to two pivotal factors: the inception of a novel mold encompassing outward relief for the holes, and the preparation of materials with pre-drilled precision before insertion. This meticulous process yields a racket emerging with pre-existing holes and a seamlessly contoured radius. The technical outcome manifests as a noteworthy augmentation in core resistance and a noteworthy 50% reduction in fabric utilization.

Another distinctive feature of this model is the incorporation of Airfow technology, strategically placed elongated holes between the frame and core, aimed at facilitating the smooth passage of air through the racket. Radio technology, consistent with the rest of the holes, is also harnessed in this aspect.

Elevating the racket to a professional echelon is the Prisma frame, effectively reducing the frame's contact point with walls and surfaces by a substantial 90%, coupled with a 10% decrease in air resistance. This translates to enhanced maneuverability and heightened acceleration capability during hits. Further fortifying the racket's vulnerability, especially in the head region, is the Prisma bumper, an adhesive attachment seamlessly conforming to the frame's shape and its interface with the racket plane.

To mitigate the influence of temperature on the racket's materials, this model boasts the use of two rubber types: a softer variant, denoted as "W," recommended for temperatures up to 25ºC / 77ºF, and a harder counterpart, labeled "S," suitable for temperatures exceeding 25ºC / 77ºF. Consequently, we advocate carrying both rackets to accommodate temperature-dependent preferences.

When it comes to imparting spin to the hits, the Maxima Summum Prisma introduces the Slice, a textured plane meticulously designed with curved lines to enhance ball adhesion. The incorporation of Summum technology further augments the construction, introducing a longer grip for enhanced comfort and professional handling, along with a 1 cm elongation of the striking surface. The Wings Diffuser technology embedded in the heart enhances aerodynamics, providing heightened maneuverability and precision.

Noteworthy among the innovations is the Handlesafety technology, a novel safety system for the handle. Departing from the conventional approach where the string exits through a central hole attached to the handle frame using pins or rivets, Handlesafety reimagines the design, routing the string through both walls of the handle, emerging on both sides of the tip—a configuration ensuring 100% safety and comfort in grip.

In essence, Maxima Summum Prisma stands as a pinnacle of technological prowess in racket engineering, embodying a fusion of precision, power, and safety for discerning players.

TECHNOLOGIES

AIRFLOW TECHNOLOGY

Dedicated to facilitating the seamless movement of air across the blade, Airflow Technology employs a distinctive arrangement of elongated and circular apertures strategically positioned between the frame and the core's center. Notably absent from the central region, these apertures minimize turbulence generation. Placing them in locations determined by meticulous aerodynamic studies conducted through Varlion's proprietary software ensures optimal aerodynamic coefficients.

RADIUS TECHNOLOGY

Revolutionizing paddle blade manufacturing, the patented RADIO technology (registration number 202030310 in the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office) represents a departure from conventional methods. Unlike traditional molding and subsequent drilling, RADIO technology produces a pre-drilled paddle straight out of the mold, marking a paradigm shift in fabrication processes.

PRISMA FRAME

Debuting in the Maxima Summum Prisma and Bourne Summum Prisma rackets, the innovative prism-shaped frame showcases a 10% reduction in wind resistance compared to Hexagon and other conventional frames. This enhancement, validated through wind tunnel aerodynamic studies, translates into superior maneuverability, acceleration, and overall gameplay speed. The frame's unique design necessitates specialized manufacturing for increased rigidity and resilience, complemented by a specially injected adhesive bumper.

The innovative technology has been officially patented and is registered with the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office under Utility model No. 202030114. Furthermore, its scope extends beyond national borders, allowing for potential expansion to other countries.

SLICE

Introducing a novel textured surface, Slice technology caters specifically to backhand or drive shots incorporating slice or cuts. The design features curved lines tailored for right-handed players, mirrored for their left-handed counterparts. This configuration ensures effective ball hooking and heightened impact. In contrast to tennis rackets with straight, horizontal strings forming a cross, Slice technology's curved lines cover a larger surface area in contact with the ball, amplifying its hooking effect.

SUMMUM

Summum technology amalgamates four groundbreaking innovations introduced in 2018, culminating in the pinnacle racket of the collection:

  1. Extended Grip: At 14.50 cm, the grip surpasses conventional lengths, affording players, especially those using both hands or transitioning from tennis, increased handling space.
  2. Wings Diffuser: Modeled after an airplane wing silhouette, augmented with a turbulator, the diffuser enhances airflow control, resulting in a 27% improvement in speed, precision, and airflow management compared to its predecessor.
  3. Expanded Hitting Surface: The racket boasts a 1.5 cm wider hitting area, providing superior control and responsiveness. Achieved through a functional drilling design, the total number of holes increases from 68 to 76.
  4. Enhanced Rough Texture: Elevating the rough texture's height and width, Hexatex and Slice technologies empower players to exert greater spin and control, even on off-center hits.

TEMPERATURES

Acknowledging the direct impact of environmental temperature on padel racket performance, higher-end models offer seasonal variants—Winter ("W") and Summer ("S"). Tailored core materials address temperature-induced variations:

  1. High Temperatures ("S"): Incorporating materials with lower elasticity and hardness, ideal for temperatures around 25ºC / 77ºF, preventing performance alterations due to material softening.
  2. Low Temperatures ("W"): Featuring materials with greater mechanical elasticity, recommended for temperatures around 25ºC / 77ºF. Counteracting core hardening, this configuration ensures optimal performance in colder conditions.

DIFUSOR WINGS

Developed to direct airflow within the racket's treatable area—the core—Difusor Wings technology enhances player speed, ensures hitting regularity, and promotes controlled shots. Drawing inspiration from Formula 1 aerodynamics, its design mirrors the diffuser employed by the Brawn GP team.

7 RHOMBUS CARBON FABRIC

Incorporating a 12K carbon fiber fabric in a rhomboid shape, this design choice maximizes core flexibility.

PRISMA BUMPER

Exclusive to Prisma frame models of the 20.1 collection, the Prisma Bumper introduces a novel adhesive design. Created through injection molding with low hardness PTU, it absorbs shocks and abrasions without the need for frame drilling. This innovative bumper attachment eliminates vibrations, achieving seamless integration with the racket frame.

HYPERSOFT

Featuring a soft foam core with exceptional measures of hardness and rebound, Hypersoft technology delivers a balanced blend of control and power. Tailored for gameplay in low temperatures or up to 25ºC, it ensures consistent performance regardless of external conditions.
