Design high-performing racket with our second-generation carbon-fiber material

A circular economy and high performance – a winning combination

Fairmat’s research and development is focused on creating high-performance, low-carbon-impact materials made from second-generation carbon fiber composite.

This environmentally friendly material is used to produce panels and molded pieces, enabling the manufacture of lightweight, robust, sustainable sports rackets with high mechanical properties.

Choose an advanced recycled material for your racket 

At Fairmat, we understand the importance of choosing the right racket.

That’s why we won’t compromise on mechanical properties when developing our racket components.

Different materials are used across different areas of a padel or a pickleball racket, such as the frame, core, face, and grip. 

The frame – the part of the racket surrounding the face – is a component that requires strong, high-density materials. Fairmat’s high mechanical properties make it the perfect material for a padel or a pickleball racket frame.

It offers an outstanding balance between hardness, lightness, and resistance, providing a more comfortable and safe game.

In addition to great performance, Fairmat offers the advantage of reducing the environmental impact of your racket – it’s now recycled and recyclable, with a low carbon footprint.
