DEVELOPMENT
HISTORY

New challenge with latest technology

Racket frame shape… It much affects on playability.
Recent popular sqaure frame got popular among general players more than 20 years ago.

Since that evolution, the frame of badminton rackets has not been dramatically changed until now.

But the rules of badminton has been changed much for these 20 years.

13 point setting match was abolished.

Change from Service point scoring system to Rally point system.

As the game is shortened, each shot got to be more important to win.

Not only stamina for the game, player needs to control the shot quickly and accurately.

GOSEN is challenging to the next generation of racket in which more speed and accuracy will be required.

All-ROUND INNOVATION PROVIDED WITH STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY

At the development stage, we approached from totally different direction about materials and designs.

What is the essencial factor to respond to every player's style ?

What could be done to improve the racket performance with more strength and speed ?

After many trial productions, the edgy frame proportion is completed.

MATERIAL

MATERIAL

MITSUBISHI RAYON PYROFIL

PYROFIL Material by MITSUBISHI RAYON

To design special structured frame, the presicion of carbon prepreg is requred much more than for conventional rackets.

Mitsubishi Rayon Pirofil used for INFERNO racket is the material which has already adopted for the material of aircraft and golf shaft.

Moreover, all hotmelt processing realized high strenth and clear feeling at impact.

Excellent strength

All hotmelt processing hightened the bonding strength of each carbon fiber by covering them with resin. Conventional carbon sheet has less bonding strength because each fiber is not covered with regin.

Vertical section comparison (x500)

Clear Hitting impact

Impact shock on typical carbon sheet is scattered around, but impact shock on all hotmelt carbon is spread from the center evenly as the carbon fibers are bonded well.

Comparison of shock spreading by ultrasonic.

VERIFICATION TEST

Empirical results of ultra-high-speed camera test

Photron CO., LTD.

Test cooperation

"0.003 seconds" - time while the shuttleocck is on the string bed at the impact.
Initial velocity of shuttlecock is compared between INFERNO and conventional racket by high speed camera.

Racket Swing speed (Average) Initial velocity f shuttlecock (Average) Power efficiency
Conventional racket 107.7km/h 349km/h 324%
104.1km/h 354km/h 340%
Power efficiency 5.1% UP on average

* Tested by Gosen Co., Ltd.

Inferno

Inferno:Verification result of shuttlecock exit angle after impact

Compared with conventional racket, INFERNO frame and shaft return to the original position 0.003 seconds after the shuttlecock released, thus pushing the shuttlecock to sink while providing power to the shuttleocck.

Shuttlecock hit angle on average Sinks sharply by 2.5°
