FZ FORZA COLLECTION 2018/2019

WELCOME TO A NEW SEASON AND THE 2018/19 COLLECTION The past year has been a great success for FZ FORZA – our players have achieved amazing results, our brand has expanded in many countries and we have signed agreements with a lot of exciting partners, among others different national federations and the charity organization Solibad. This great success is reflected in our new collection where you will find a strong collab with Anders Anton- sen, also known as ”The next one”, a collection series dedicated to the non-profit organization Solibad and a Danish national teamwear series.

FZ FORZA is proud sponsor of the Danish Badminton Federation sup- porting the junior-, veteran-, and para national team with teamwear of course made in red and white colors representing the Danish flag.

Exclusive clothing series have been developed in collaboration with Anders Antonsen on the male side and two strong women players on the women side. For these two limited edition clothing series the players have chosen colors, style and prints creating a unique look in the spirit of the players representing FZ FORZA every day on court. Another strong and meaningful partnership presented in the new collection is the Solibad project which through badminton helps children in different parts of the world. FZ FORZA supports the non-profit organiza- tion by donating 1000 rackets a year and by donating 8% of the Solibad collection to their projects.

As always FZ FORZA is at the forefront when it comes to innovative new technical features on badminton equipment and this year you will find a brand new very technical frame Power 9X. This frame has been twist- ed 9 times to increase durability and stiffness in the frame, and you will find it on FZ FORZA Power 9X-300 and Power 9X-290.

The 2018 collection has generally been inspired by the talented players and projects surrounding FZ FORZA and we are proud to finally present this unique collection and encourage you to flick to the next page and explore with us. We hope you will enjoy the FZ FORZA 2018/19 collection and look forward to an exciting season. Kind regards Martin Lundgaard CEO INTRO 2 COLLECTION 2018/2019

Get ready to gear up with Europe’s biggest single talent! As a tribute to Anders Antonsen’s big talent, we have collaborated with Anders and created a stunning line of limited edition gear fit for a rising talent. Anders Antonsen got himself noticed in 2016, not just because of his great play on court but also for putting words on his ambitions. “I’m the next one” – those were the words from the young talent after winning Scottish Open. And when looking at his past couple of years this ambition does not seem unrealistic at all! Anders Antonsen did in a year move more than 700 steps forward on the world ranking – which reveals some of the talent he is made of.

2017 also became the year where Anders won silver at the European Championship and became the Danish national champion. AA COLLAB Anders Antonsen 14 COLLECTION 2018/2019

SHOE COLLECTION 2018 - THE TECHNOLOGIES DRYLEX Consists of special mesh layer and holes in the shoe that provides excellent breathability for the feet. Drylex helps transporting moisture away from your feet to keep them dry and comfortable. LAT The lateral stability technology enhances the durability of the shoe and the lateral stability of the forefoot during intense and rapid transfer of direction. Lateral stability is important in a badminton shoe when moving quickly around on court from side to side. DURA-COAT Our High-tech microfiber PU treated with a thin coating. The combination of Dura-coat gives the shoe an extreme durability and a unique abrasion resistance.

Dura-coat is applied on areas where the shoe is most exposed for abrasion.

X-TECH The ankle is exposed for twisting in the many sideways motions in badminton. A twist in the ankle is one of the most common injuries in badminton, but with the evolutionary FZ FORZA X-Technology the stability of the ankle is increased which prevent/reduce the twisting of the ankle. With the right badminton shoes, you can prevent injuries and perform better on court. Put simply, badminton shoes have to be comfortable, improve your game and prevent injuries. These three factors are the basics in all FZ FORZA shoes.

A lot of people focus on the racket when buying badminton equipment, but shoes, and the right shoes, are at least as important as the racket.

A pair of good shoes is essential to perform. Badminton is an extremely fast-paced game that requires a lot of movement in different directions. You move back and forth, from side to side and jump. The game requires quick changes in pace and direction, making quick footwork essential in badminton. Any slip hurts your performance or even worse, your body! The FZ FORZA shoes are made in materials quality checked in rigorous test to make sure that it is suitable and stable. Before the shoes enter the market they are furthermore tested by professional badminton players and if necessary, improvements are made before you find it on the shelves.

TUCK BOARD With our Tuck Board increases the shoe’s torsional flexibility. Torsional flexibility supports the foot’s natural movement and allows the foot to move faster. Our Carbon Tuck Board is made of three-dimensional carbon fiber sheets that support the torsional movement and reduce stress on the arch tendon. F-ZONE Our FZone Grip ensures excellent grip with the court which supports the slip resistance. FZone Grip consists of various patterns that support variety of movements in badminton, so the grip on the court is optimal in all game situations. We only use rubber of the highest quality to our soles to ensure an extremely wear resistant outsole.

ASE By inserting this light weight TPU piece under the arch creates both a lighter and stronger shoe but also more stable. ASE supports the arch and helps prevent pronation and torsion in the shoe for increased functionality and comfort. + By extending the ASE, the FZClaw appears on the lateral side of the forefoot. FZClaw significantly enhances the lateral stability of the foot and provides the shoe extra durability during intense and rapid transfer of direction. FZORB FZorb is a fantastic material for shock absorption. By molding the FZorb into the heel-area if the sole, decreases the many hard shocks that player’s feet are exposed to during the game, as well as providing increased comfort for the player.

+ Is FZorb molded into the forefoot area of the sole, to provide an greater shock absorption, particularly when during jumps and sidesteps. In addition, FZorb+ enhanced the comfort compared to FZorb.

++ For a larger shock absorption is FZorb++ the right choice.

As we continue to improve our rackets and strive towards creating the best racket in the world, we continually research and develop new materials and ideas to take our rackets to the next level. Carbon Nano Tubes (CNT) is based on extraordinary small scale advancements in the material construction. Thanks to our cooperation with Aalborg University in Denmark, FZ FORZA is able to introduce world-class rackets manufactured using polymer composite materials modified by Multi-Wall Carbon Nano Tubes (MWCNT). Thanks to the MWCNT technology your FZ FORZA racket has improved durability in com- parison with conventional rackets.

The polymer resin that binds the carbon fibers together will ensure toughness and damage tolerance. R AN EASY GUIDE TROUGH THE FZ FORZA RACKET TECHNOLOGIES, AND WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU ON THE COURT 44 COLLECTION 2018/2019 RACKETS -THE TECHNOLOGIES The racket technology has changed a lot the past 25 years, and the advanced technology has contributed to more speed and power in badminton. This also means that we as racket manufacturer have to make even better rackets and always improve our racket technology. It would not be possible to use the old wooden rackets in todays speed and power game.

The trend has moved towards lighter rackets bringing the required speed into the game. On the other hand it is important to maintain a certain weight in the frame to produce the power which is also very much needed on court.

FZ FORZA is at the forefront when it comes to badminton racket technology, and this year’s racket collection is no exception. Kevlar® is a very advanced material which combines great strength with light weight. The material is elastic and yet 5 times stronger that steel. Therefore Kevlar® has a lot of uses and is used for bulletproof vests among other things. When FZ FORZA uses Kevlar® in combination with graphite in the rackets we can make light and extremely strong rackets with a lot of power. Kevlar® helps absorb the shock at impact, making the racket feel soft and comfortable which let you generate more power.

Titanium is a very light and rigid material which is used to build space shuttles among other things. The combination of graphite and titanium increases the racket’s durability and gives the racket increased control.

This material is used to enhance the performance in our very best rackets. The ultra high modulus graphite is stronger and stiffer than ordinary graphite, creating rackets that have less torsion and more power. This will give you more accurate and powerful strokes. The slim shaft greatly reduces the air resistance when swinging and it greatly increases your swing speed but with less effort. The FZ FORZA slim shaft rebounds almost as fast as a conventional shaft, meaning that you get much more stability and accuracy, making it a superior choice when you are looking for a slim shaft racket. MATERIALS SHAFT The shaft determines the racket’s qualities, and so the choice of shaft is very important in terms of getting the most benefit from your racket.

Players with a good technique have good rotation in their lower arms which transfers into a force at impact. If you rotate in your lower arm it is very easy for you to hit a shuttlecock to the baseline and you do not need further help from the racket. Players with a good technique would normally benefit from a rigid shaft, and players with less rotation would benefit from a flexible shaft. A flexible shaft gives a flick which adds speed to the shuttlecock, but it takes a bit longer for the shaft to settle which is okay if it is a slow-paced game. A rigid shaft is stable and doesn’t torque and gives better control of your stroke.

This is especially helpful in fast-paced games.

RACKETS TECHNOLOGY 45 The new innovative Power frame from FZ FORZA is a little wider at the top of the frame. An aerodynamic frame for great swing speed and the little wideness in the top gives you less torsion and extra power at impact. Combining the benefits of the hexa and octagon shape, this innovative shape gives you both increased strength in the racket, while being thinner on top. Decreased air-resistance combined with less torque makes this a precise, fast and durable weapon on court. The slim frame is 12-18% thinner than conventional rackets. We achieve this by combining superior high grade materials and resins with our proprietary production methods to achieve a slimmer racket frame that moves faster through the air, without sacrificing power or torsion.

FZ FORZA has developed a hexagon frame which is more narrow and stronger than usual. It gives reduced air resistance and less torsion. That means faster reactions, better control and more power. Our air flow frame reduces drag and air resistance during your stroke, enabling you to deliver more power and precision. Furthermore the more rigid T-joint construction offers a much more stable frame with almost no torsion, allowing you to put the shuttle exactly where you want it.

FZ FORZA has developed an octagon frame which ensures that the air flows around the frame with greater ease, thus increasing your reaction time. The frame is also more narrow and stronger than usual reducing air resistance and providing torsion. The frame design is extra durable, making you play stronger for longer. The slightly oversized frame helps increase the sweet spot for easier shot-making and increased fun while playing. The racket is still light and the special shape of the oversize head means that you will still be able to generate lots of power. The future of oversize rackets has started here.

FRAMES The structure of the frame or racket head is important in relation to the force that has to be transferred to the shuttlecock from the rotation in the wrist and arm and the flexibility in the racket shaft. The less torsion in the frame – the more force will be transferred and the more control you have of your hit. The weight of the frame is also important for how the racket feels when hitting. A head-light racket has the weight distributed in the shaft and grip. It requires that your technique is good and that you have rotation and impact force. You will feel that your racket is very easy to move.

A head-heavy racket primarily has its weight in the frame. It is best suited for a person that relies more on fitness, power and endurance than technique. You may feel that your racket is a bit slow to move, but it gives you extra power when hitting. A racket with an even balance has the weight distributed evenly between head and shaft. You will feel more power when hitting, but the racket is a bit slower to move.

CHOICE OF STRINGS Thin gauges (0,62 – 0.70 mm): Recommended: For tournament players and players who want to have more fun and win more games. Listen to the strings and hear the music. Advantages: Less air resistance · faster reactions · greater power · less string tension = longer racket life. Disadvantages: Less durability and more expensive maintenance. Thick gauges: Recommended: For amateur players, beginners, and players who often hit the shuttlecock outside the impact surface.

Advantages: Longer life and thereby less expense. Disadvantages: More air resistance · slower strokes · a little less power.

GRIP FZ FORZA offers a wide range of accessories including grips. Grip is important because if you do not hold the racket correctly, you will find it difficult to produce winning strokes. Therefore, grip is a part of the basis for all racket skills and using a good grip is one of the first steps to mastering the badminton game. If you buy a good grip, you will have smashes that are more powerful and you will have shots and serves that are more accurate. You will feel more connected with the racket, which is important when the racket is your weapon in the game.
