Spanish-based Enebe Padel has launched a new range of paddle tennis paddles made using TeXtreme carbon fiber fabrics.

‘Using TeXtreme in our paddles has contributed to increased durability along with improvements in strength while achieving ultra-light weight,’ said Pilar Osca, chief marketing officer of Enebe Sports Group. ‘This fiber is definitely lighter than the carbon fiber 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 fiber materials.’
