Description Features
Carlton's flagship prouct is here!  The Carlton Kinesis Badminton Racket is designed for players to attack with high force using a short swing. The design makes the racket light and maneuverability this allows greater control in rapid fast flat exchanges and when recovering fast smashes. Overhead shots are effortless due to the balanced feel of the racket and the maneuverability allows quick deception.
  • Kinesis - 90 degree twists at 2, 5, 7 and 10 o'clock to reduce weight and acts to increase swing speed witht the Vortex Geometry.
  • Vortex Geometry - A new design of the racket head to help improve the aerodynamics of the racket throughout the whole swing. Most rackets are designed with excellent aerodynamics in a single plane, the Vortex System is designed to have excellent speed through a whole rotation.
  • Circometric - An oval shaped head that provides better aerodynamics than an isometric head allowing faster swing speeds. The more compact hitting area gives extra feel and touch on the shuttle.
  • Xtreme Tension Frame - Attention to detail and high quality materials ensure that Carlton rackets are safe to be strung at higher tensions.
  • Micro Grommet System - Smaller tapered edge grommets that sit in a groove in the frame reduce aerodynamic drag by allowing the string to sit closer to the frame.
  • Pro V12 Grommets - Small flexible grommets that allow greater string movement to increase the power the centre crosses can generate.
  • Japanese HM Carbon - A Hi Modulus top of the range carbon that is a consistent high quality providing durability and stability.
  • Ultra-Lite Cap - A re-design of the traditional cap to reduce the racket weight as much as possible. The new cap is perforated to reduce its weight by 28%.
  • The racket comes strung in Carlton Xelerate X67. The tension range for this racket is 18-28lbs.

Good for doubles play. August 18, 2013
Even balance racquet with an extremely fast swing. I would rate this racquet to fall somewhere between ArcSaber10 and ArcSaber11. The factory string - Carlton Xlerate 67 is strung at 20 pounds unlike what is mentioned in the description. But for a factory, i would say this is one of the best strings i have ever seen.

In a doubles game i feel this racquet is a winner in the mid court and close to the net. Shots are very precise and racquet provides excellent control and placement. But for the more powerful shots like smashes or back court clears, you need to consciously put an extra finger to push the bird through to end of opponents court.

The price of the racquet seems to be a little too high, since the vendors in UK and local badminton clubs are selling it for a price around $140. Also badminton warehouse doesn't seem to stock Carlton xlerate strings. I had to order additional strings from direct badminton, an UK website.
