Tick, tick, tick… BOOM!
Fun just got more explosive
One of the most anticipated racket releases hit our shelves at the start of this year. A racket like no other, with a sensation like no other. You don’t have to think about anything, but enjoying the moment.
The HEAD Boom series.
“A sensation like no other”… Auxetic materials. This is what connects HEAD tennis rackets with nuclear reactors, as well as on the cutting edge of aerospace and biomedicine technology.
Situated in the throat of the racket, Auxetic technology actively responds and gives you the optimal feel on impact and super accurate feedback. Auxetic constructions show a unique deformation compared to non-Auxetic constructions. Due to their internal properties, Auxetic constructions widen when a “pull” force is applied and contract when squeezed. The bigger the applied force, the bigger the Auxetic reaction.
Within the range, there are 4 frames to choose from, all suiting varying styles and abilities. A new head shape, wider at 10 and 2 o’clock, widens the sweet spot and allows for a higher contact point.

In the words of Stefan Mohr, who is part of the research and development team, HEAD put so much into creating the BOOM racket series, that the finished product feels like “a piece of art”, which touches on perfection.
“In the history of HEAD, we have never had more preparation, so many prototypes and so much testing. For me personally, this racket is a well-orchestrated piece of art in racket sport engineering,” Mohr says. “All the pieces are aligned perfectly in the BOOM racket – the frame, the string-bed, the geometry, the grommets, everything’s perfect. This is the best racket we’ve created so far.”
