Diadem Elevate FS 98
The Diadem Elevate FS is the evolution of Elevate 98. The head size and weight (98 sq. in. and 305 grams unstrung) makes it a potential competitor to Wilson Blade, Head Radical and Babolat Pure Strike (just to cite the most popular ones). In fact, it shares with the aforementioned frames the same main characteristics in terms of control and power, with the addition of a very strong stability considering its weight.
The predominant color is teal, with navy blue side bands on the head. As always, the design is clean and elegant. The technical data are clearly visible, as well as indications for the stringing knots.
The well-known technology IST (Impact Shield Technology) is still present, strengthening the frame by means of a proprietary foam injection inside the handle and the throat. In addition, the new Elevate introduces the new FS (Flex Stabilization) technology (that gives its name to this 2020 racket), consisting in internal venations reinforcing and stabilizing the frame, which contribute to eliminate negative vibrations.
