What is Full EVA?
This innovation is exclusive to Kuikma, Decathlon's padel brand. The bat is made from a single piece of EVA foam covered with a composite fibre surface. This frameless construction extends the EVA foam surface and increases the size of the head's sweet spot. It is therefore highly forgiving of centring errors, giving you better ball control.
How we design our products
Kuikma is a team of passionate padel players.
Our research centre is based in Spain and is specialised in design and engineering. Its role is to identify users' needs and feed them back to our design centre in France.
Following tests conducted with Horacio Alvarez Clementi, we then tested the bat durability at our design centre lab.
These tests mean that we can thoroughly check the quality of our products.
