Spanish-based Enebe Padel has launched its 2016 range of paddle tennis paddles featuring its top-of-the-line Spitfire TeXtreme – manufactured using TeXtreme carbon fibre fabrics.
Pilar Osca, Chief Marketing Officer of Enebe Sports Group, says, “Using TeXtreme in our paddles has contributed to increased durability along with improvements in strength while achieving ultra-light weight. This fibre is definitely lighter than the carbon fibre generally used and resulted in a measurable increase in power and shot accuracy. Our technical team has been able to deliver a high performance paddle to players that wasn’t possible with other carbon fibre materials.”
“We are excited to have a presence in yet another sport and see that our materials bring value to so many different applications. For producing lightweight composite products, the TeXtreme Technology again proves to be the best choice in materials,” says Andreas Martsman, VP of Marketing & Sales at Oxeon – the makers of TeXtreme.
Enebe Padel is a subsidiary of Enebe Sport Group who Oxeon describes as an international company with over 50 years of experience in the field of sports and a presence in more than 60 countries. The Enebe Padel Team counts among its players Matias Nicoletti, Pitu Losada (three-time world paddle tennis champion), Jake Benzal and Ricky Martinez - all participants in the World Padel Tour.
