Official Racket World Padel Tour Malmö Padel Open 2022.
Maxima is a model that was born in 2020 from the fusion between the LW (rounded shape created in 1995) and the Avant (teardrop shape created in 2009). As a result, we achieved a rounded teardrop-shaped racket, designed for players who seek control in their game without losing power.
It is made with a bi-directional carbon tubular and Hypersoft foam core of medium hardness - corresponding to our Winter and Summer (W/S). The core is laminated with a woven layer of 12K carbon fiber, a second layer of plain woven 3K carbon fiber and a third layer of thin glass fiber. Its core and frame are reinforced with 3K plain weave carbon fiber. All these materials are impregnated with Varlion's exclusive VAR-FLEX epoxy resin for maximum elasticity and strength, and coated with a layer of titanium dioxide.
This professional-level racket has the PRISMA frame, with which we manage to reduce the contact point of the frame against walls and surfaces by 90%, as well as 10% air resistance. All this means better maneuverability of the racket and greater acceleration capacity on hits.
On the other hand, we have reinforced its most fragile point (the head) with an adhesive bumper that adapts perfectly to its shape, the Prisma bumper. This not only covers the frame, but also its connection with the plane of the racket.
This racket includes Summum technology in its construction, which is based on the sum of several factors:
- A longer grip than usual to provide the player with a more comfortable and professional grip, and also to make it easier for those who use both hands on backhand shots.
- A 1 cm longer striking surface.
- A gradual holes pattern with more holes (76 in total), to improve and expand the sweet spot of the racket.
- And the Wings Diffuser technology in the heart, with an aerodynamically improved diffuser, which provides more maneuverability and precision.
And finally, it is worth highlighting the Handlesafety technology, a new safety system for the handle. Normally, in all rackets the rope comes out from a centered hole which is attached to the handle frame by means of a pin, rivets, nails, etc. However, with this system, the rope goes through the two walls of the handle and comes out on both sides of the tip, thus giving 100% safety and comfort to the grip.
New revolutionary prism-shaped frame, designed and implemented in the two new Maxima Summum Prisma and Bourne Summum Prisma rackets.
After performing an aerodynamic study in a wind tunnel, it has been shown that it has 10% less wind resistance compared to the Hexagon frame and the conventional frames of the other rackets. This change translates into better manageability and a higher speed of movement of the rackets, which allows greater acceleration and speed of play.
The design of this frame requires special manufacturing to make it more rigid and resistant, in addition to a specific injected adhesive bumper.

Summum technology is based on the sum of four great innovations launched in 2018, which give rise to the most complete and highest level racket of the collection:
Longer grip. The grip is 14.50 cm long (the usual ones are between 11 and 12.50 cm), providing the player with more space to handle, especially for tennis players or players who use both hands.
Wings Diffuser. Diffuser designed under the silhouette of an airplane wing profile, to which we have also added a turbulator, used in the wings of airplanes and the spoilers of F1 cars to obtain a better control of air flow. The result is a 27% improvement in the speed, precision and control of the air passage compared to the previous Diffuser.
Greater hitting surface. The hitting area is 1.5 cm wider compared to the other racket, so you will gain much more control and responsiveness in your game. This expansion is also achieved thanks to the fact that we have drilled the entire surface of the racket, with a functional drilling design that increases the number of holes in total from 68 to 76.
Increased height and surface in rough texture. The rough texture of the plane (Hexatex and Slice technologies) is higher and wider, so you can further increase the effect on the ball. In addition, thanks to its greater surface area, you can now achieve impossible shots even if the ball lands further from the center of the racket.
Technology developed with the aim of directing the air flow in the only "treatable" area of the racket where the air passes through, its heart. The advantages of this technology are:
Increased player speed on both quick hits and smash.
Greater hitting regularity by making the trajectory more constant, thanks to the zero influence of the turbulences that conventional rackets normally have in the heart area.
Greater number of blows with more control, also thanks to the reduction of said turbulence.
Its design is inspired by the diffuser that included the Formula 1 Brawn GP team for the first time on the rear and bottom of the car.
7 RHOMBUS CARBON FABRIC
12K carbon fiber fabric in a rhomboid shape, to a greater flexibility in the core.
New adhesive bumper designed exclusively for Prisma frame models of 20.1 collection. This bumper has been designed and produced through an injection mold in a low hardness PTU to absorb shocks and chafing.
It is fixed on the racket frame by means of an adhesive material without the need to drill into the frame and thus avoiding having to weaken it for its fixing. Consequently, possible vibrations of the bumper are eliminated and we achieve a total twinning between the racket frame and the lower surface of the bumper.
