Description The Dunlop Aerogel 200 tennis racket is white, sliver, black and two shades of blue. The design of this 2000s racket involved a number of people over a number years and was first marketed in 2007. It is made of carbon fibre with Aerogel (R), a plastic foam, introduced by Dunlop. It is claimed that Aerogel is the world's lightest and most solid material and is capable of holding 4000 times its own weight. It is placed in the racket at the 2, 5, 7, and 10 o'clock positions of the hoop to give added stiffness without significantly adding to its weight. This racket weighs 337 grams and is complete with its carrying case.
