Recent physical developments (e.g. the new balls) and the experience gained through a long-term design and testing series all over the world (involving numerous GEWO top level and players, talents and coaches from various fields) culminated in one goal: The development of the “nexxTT Generation” rubber series. Now, we are proud to announce: Mission Completed!
Powerful. Made for Speed.
The Power Package of the Nexxus series Maximum dynamics and a flat trajectory combined with enormous catapult effect are the prime features of this power rubber. FLEX-TEC technology provides for maximum speed, while the DGC40+ 2.0 top sheet guarantees consistent and reliable coupling when the bat hits the ball. Especially if used with maXXimum sponge thickness (2.3 mm), this power package unfolds all its power and energy potential. Despite the speed and dynamics of the 48° hard sponge, GEWO Nexxus XT Pro 48 provides for astonishing feel, thanks to its grippy top sheet, and unbelievable reliability for passive strokes used in modern serve/return situations, blocking and flips.
Player type / features:
- Flat and direct trajectory characterize this power package.
- Attacking rubber with optimized speed and catapult features, unfolding its full strength and power when taking it to the limit. Uncompromising attacking power!
- Ideal for modern attackers relying on dynamic, speed-focused, close-to-the-table and mid-distance topspin playing.
nexxTT / N.E.P (Nano.Elastic.Plus) / Maxximum.Power.Play.
Due to permanent product adjustments, e.g. the introduction of the new ABS balls, rubbers had to be adjusted accordingly to these trends. The latest ball generation produces less rotation and speed. To compensate for this loss in rotation and speed, you have two options: Adjust your technique or your material. GEWO aims at supporting the necessary physical adjustments with innovative solution approaches: A thin, high-grip top sheet (nexxTT) compensating the loss in speed and rotation with its inherent dynamics and higher tension (N.E.P.). Plus, a medium-pore, dynamic sponge which, depending on the performance variant chosen (XT -> speed; EL -> spin), makes the Nexxus Pro Series a real “Energy Monster”, especially the maXXimum thickness ( 2,2mm/2,3 mm = Maxximum.Power.Play.).
One of the factors of success of the GEWO HYPE EL / XT / KR rubbers was the innovative DGC40+ top sheet technology. DGC40+ stands for constant, reliable coupling upon ball contact, and the grippy surface prevents “slipping” of the ball. The introduction of the latest ball generation (e.g. GEWO Select Pro 40+ ***), however, also calls for a further development and adaptation of the top sheets. The result: DGC40+ “Dynamic-Grip-Concept“ 2.0. The top sheet was specially developed for and adjusted to the requirements of the latest ball generations. If you don’t go forward, you go backwards!
The flexible sponge/rubber design FLEX-TECH (XT) which was specially developed for GEWO, produces impressive speed. Rubbers from the XT series, combined with the DGC40+ 2.0 top sheet, transform the speed of your opponent’s topspins into energy and release this energy again in your own stroke when the ball leaves your bat. The pimple heads in the rubber are arranged at a greater distance from one another, and they are slightly thinner than in EL rubbers. These rubbers primarily focus on speed.
The EL rubber (Elastic Rubber), despite its compactness provides for great ball contact feedback and a unique feel. All rubbers of this series are made for spin. The pimple heads in the rubber are arranged at a smaller distance from one another, and they are slightly thicker than in XT rubbers. When it comes to generating spin, the DGC40+ 2.0 top sheet unfolds its true strength (highly reliable coupling and maximum spin), as it provides for a slightly larger contact area upon ball contact. Enjoy a new experience!
