Devastating Cut Smashes and Hairpin Shots with New Hybrid Badminton String, AEROBITE BOOST

15 January 2019

Yonex Co., Ltd. is proud to announce AEROBITE BOOST, a new, hybrid badminton string utilizing different material in the mains and crosses, available from late March 2019.

Yonex’s first hybrid string, AEROBITE, released in September 2016, and delivered quick repulsion and stronger spin to help players dominate each point with sharp hairpin and cut shots. The new AEROBITE BOOST improves on this formula by minimizing energy loss at impact, allowing for powerful smashes into the opponent’s court.

The main vertical string of AEROBITE BOOST is utilizes two key materials to minimize the loss of energy so that the shuttle retains the energy of impact for explosive repulsion: VectranTM*, a stretch-resistant super fiber more than twice as strong as nylon, and an oval-shaped filament in the outer designed to minimize deformation at impact. These mains, in combination with super-thin cross string AEROSONIC, increase shuttle spin and speed.

*VectranTM is a trademark of KURARAY Co. Ltd.


 1.    Transmit explosive power: VectranTM + oval-shaped filament (main string)

Super fiber VectranTM, more than twice as strong as nylon, is wrapped surround the core filament of the main string to prevent stretching and to increase durability. Meanwhile, an oval-shaped filament, which deforms less at impact, is utilized in the outer wrapping. This combination reduces the loss of energy at impact, which is retained in the shuttlecock and transferred through the shot.

A polyurethane coating applied to the mains increase friction so they bite the shuttlecock strongly and enhance hairpin shot performance with even a light touch.

2.    Less friction, super-thin string (cross string)

AEROSONIC is used for a super-thin cross string. It reduces the friction between each string, resulting in greater shuttle spin by allowing the mains to quickly rebound to their original position.

3.    Hairpin and cut performance: innovative hybrid string theory


Hairpins drop straight down as a result of mains that bite the shuttle with increased friction.


Spin is achieved as the main strings return to their original position.
