The REDSON racket design is concise and elegant without a trace of redundancy. Plenty of high-value specifications from earlier times have been carried throughout the philosophy of REDSON rackets manufacturing and have remained with the passage of time.

We are aware of the needs of players, and conscious of the high-value specifications in early models which we realize in modern manufacturing processes that the industry has yet to transcend. Neat and elegant sense of design is the consistent brand concept of REDSON. Aside from probing deeper into REDSON’s world of evolution and learning its craftsmanship, let’s take a step further to the design philosophy of REDSON.

Wooden Badminton Rackets

The brand REDSON was founded in 1980 with wooden rackets as the main product at the early stage. The wooden rackets mostly had rectangular cross section and no grommets. The downsides are heavy weight and the insufficiency of racket rigidity, torque, and elasticity. With all kinds of limitations, wooden rackets were gradually replaced by aluminum-iron ones.

Aluminum Iron Alloy Rackets

REDSON started to manufacture aluminum iron alloy rackets from 1980 to 1985. The material improved the downsides regarding the weight and rigidity of wooden rackets and provided much more resilience and torque. These rackets were formed into oval cross section. To solve the problem of break-prone strings and collapsed frames on metal rackets, grommets were widely added to protect the strings and frames.

REDSON developed the carbon fiber rackets with box-shaped structure which improved rigidity and torque, and this development had laid down the fundamental structure of the octagonal frame design. At the same time, we were also working on a racket series with oval-shaped cross section frame—BETA, which were characterized by their excellent speed and lightness. The result had laid down the fundamental structure of the hexagonal frame shape and Dimple Frame-Shape 01.

To advance the agility in swinging, REDSON improved the oval frame, which already featured better speed, and launched the aerodynamic hexagonal frame in 2006, altering the shape on the windward side to increase the speed.

Aerodynamic Frame

During a swing, the frame head has the longest fetch length. The hexagonal aerodynamic structure effectively reduces resistance and lowers the drag, thus allowing stable and powerful hits at high swinging speed.

In 2015 REDSON took a lead ahead of the industry in breaking the limitation of frame shape, successfully developing Dimple frame shape and acquiring its patent. With oval-shaped cross section as basic structure, the state of airflow on the windward side of rackets changed by altering the shape of the frame based on fluid mechanics principles. Meanwhile, the change in frame shape also reinforced the torque and stability of the structure, empowering Dimple Frame to deliver outstanding performances in every aspects. 
Aside from the overall upgrade in power, speed, and torque, it even created the ultimate unique power steering wheel-like handling that seemed airless and free of the disturbance of wind pressure, making it the signature of REDSON’s all-round series rackets.
Besides, “+SHAPE” is all about pragmatic technology and concise look, and the aesthetics design it conveyed is arguably the beginning of the modern mainstream.

Dimple Shape
The Dimple-Shape frame weakens the wake and thus lowers the drag by 10%.

Conventional Racquet
Conventional frames create a thicker wake with more drag.

As times changed, environmental awareness arose, the mainstream of the world’s trend was to be concise, light, and convenient. REDSON applied  similar principle in developing and designing rackets.

SHAPE SG took oval-shaped frame for best inertia and Dimple Frame design as basic structures, this new series was developed by virtue of continuous development, innovation and break-through. 
In 2020, REDSON overcame the problems of the strings being break-prone on the edge of the stringing holes and the collapsed frame. We took out the grommets and released the brand-new product—SHAPE SG.

Not only did it provide players with perfect synchronization with the rackets, but it also reduced the damage on frame structure, and further strengthened the rigidity of rackets along with impressive striking sound. SHAPE SG continues to innovate and make breakthrough while stays loyal to its original intents, and ushers in a brand-new beginning for grommet-free rackets.
