Why we're so proud of our PR990 range
Our Kuikma PR990 rackets are approved by Horacio Alvarez Clementi. Horacio, a former World No.1 and international coach, put his experience to work and performed several product tests. This allowed us to make the final adjustments to offer a full range of high level technical rackets.
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.
A TOP OF THE LINE RACKET AT THIS PRICE, HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?
At Kuikma, we don't want to make padel players pay extra for things that add nothing to their game.
Being both designers and retailers minimizes the number of middle-men during the manufacturing and distribution of our rackets.
This also lets us reduce our communication costs (campaigns and sponsoring). Trying out the products and word-of-mouth recommendations by players are the best types of communication we could ask for.
