    Product feature
    1. Technology: 6061 aluminium
      Thanks to its aluminium/graphite structure (6061 aluminium on the head and graphite on the shaft and handle), this racket is extremely resistant to impacts.
    2. Technology: Carbon Power Shaft
      The ARTENGO SR160 shaft is reinforced for more power than you'd get with a classic racket.
    3. Technology: High Protection Bumper
      The bumper has also been designed for greater resistance to impacts with squash court walls (High Protection Bumper technology) which extends the racket's lifespan.
    4. Weight = 165 g (unstrung)
      At 165 g (unstrung), this racket provides excellent power so that you can push your opponent to the back of the court. The weight of the racket's frame (without strings, bumper or grip) is only 150 g, making it nice and light for beginner players. This racket's characteristics let novices make rapid progress without having to upgrade their equipment too quickly.
    5. Balance = 360 mm (unstrung)
      Its 360 mm balance (slightly head-heavy) also makes it very powerful.
    6. Head size = 500 cm²
      The 500 cm² head size lets you get away with slightly off-centre shots. Because the head is longer, the strings are also longer which creates power for beginner players.
    7. String pattern = 14 x 16
      The open string pattern has been designed to give beginner players power and forgiveness. As a result of the wide gaps between strings, the head is more flexible and therefore more powerful and able to tolerate off-centre shots.

    • Poor quality

      07/05/2018
      David (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Used the racquet a handful of times. Early on a small split appeared on the handle, no big deal I thought. Couple more uses and a whole side split.

    • Un partido una raqueta

      15/06/2018
      Pablo (Spain)
      Used for 1 week or less
      Este miércoles se me partió el tallo de la raqueta durante un partido sin ningún golpe duro. A pesar de ello como me había aguantado más o menos 5 meses. Según salí del partido me compré el mismo modelo. Hoy no me ha durado ni medio partido. Ha partido por uno de los brazos, de nuevo, sin golpes bruscos. Fibra pero de baja calidad
    • Raquette correcte mais fragile

      20/07/2018
      Amaury (France)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Ayant choisi cette raquette pour débuter, j'ai été satisfait en premier lieu : bon grip, raquette assez légère, etc. Cependant, j'ai été surpris par sa fragilité... En effet, au bout de la 6ème séance, une importante fissure est apparue au niveau de la fourche. Pourtant, j'ai veillé à prendre soin de la raquette - celle-ci a subit des chocs minimes contre les murs, mais de là à se casser comme cela, bizarre...
      Response of the brand
      Bonjour Monsieur,

      Je tenais tout d'abord à vous remercier pour votre commentaire sur notre raquette ARTENGO SR160 .
      Je suis désolé que celle ci n'est pas convenu à vos attentes et ce soit cassée. 
      Bien qu'étant très attentionné à la qualité de nos produits il est possible que votre raquette soit passée entre les mailles de notre service qualité. Je vais en informer nos équipes de production afin qu'elles renforcent nos controles sur cette raquette.
      Le squash étant un sport avec de nombreux impacts, aussi faible qu'ils soient, la répétition de ceux ci peut aussi à terme provoquer la casse de la raquette. 

      Je vous invite donc à vous rendre rapidement dans votre Decathlon le plus proche afin de vous faire échanger cette raquette. Je suis sure que vous serez pleinement satisfait de la prochaine raquette. 

      Je reste à votre écoute pour tout autre commentaire sur nos produits Artengo Squash

      je vous souhaite une excellente journée et un excellent week end.

      Bien à vous

      Sportivement,

      Yvan LE BOZEC
