Since the 1950s, with the continuous improvement of the world's economic level, sports have also made continuous progress, and tennis is one of them. It is a beautiful and intense sport that is popular all over the world. The material of the tennis racket has gone through several stages of wood, 金屬, and fiberglass. 今天, the most popular is the carbon fiber tennis racket. This article will tell you about the application of carbon fiber in tennis rackets.
The carbon fiber tennis racket was born in the 1980s. It has obvious advantages: 高強度, 重量輕, good flexibility, excellent shock absorption, and it won't slip in the hand. We all know that carbon fiber is lighter than steel, yet its strength is four times that of it. The light weight can reduce the physical energy consumed by the athlete when swinging the racket, and the high strength can prevent it from being damaged by the impact of the tennis ball. When the wrist is impacted by force, there will always be damage, which is why athletes often wear wrist guards. Carbon fiber has a good shock absorption effect and can protect the wrist to the greatest extent. Long-term exercise will make the human body sweat, the carbon fiber does not slip, is not eroded by sweat, and will not affect the athlete's performance.
Carbon fiber tennis rackets have been warmly welcomed since its introduction. Compared with it, wooden tennis rackets have high requirements on wood, which can be said to be harsh, and the processing process is also quite difficult. Metal materials have high strength and good plasticity, but the shock absorption effect is too poor, which can easily cause occupational diseases. As for glass fiber reinforced plastics, it is much better than metal materials, but there is still a certain distance compared to carbon fiber. The application of carbon fiber rackets can be said to be the revolution of raw materials in the history of tennis. It provides better equipment for athletes.
