I would like to recommend this shoe for players who used to play Adidas Barricades because it's more stable than the Barricades and much lighter.
More lightweight option compared to the Revolt Pro. Typically with lighter weight shoe, you'll lose some of the support and stability but I felt I'm very well locked in this shoe.
Who is it best for? Competitive players who go for uncompromising defensive-offensive court stunts might find the Head Sprint SF as a valuable option for tennis match days.
What are its highlights?
- The vamp is treated with an ultra-tough fabric that can resist abrasion during toe-drags, serves, and rallies.
- It has a specialized ventilation system that permits air to pass through the underside to the insole.
Durable underside. The bottom layer is equipped with the Hybrasion+, a fortified rubber unit with long-lasting features. It’s designed with a herringbone tread pattern that permits the user to stop abruptly without slipping and the right amount of give when coming out of a shot. It fits all court setups including carpet for indoor play.
Ventilation system. A 360-degree moisture management technology called Cooling System is incorporated into the sole unit of this trainer to keep it breathable. Such a feature allows air to pass through the outsole and into the shoe.
Added stability source. Head administered a stability trigger on the lateral side which averts rollovers of the foot and ankle.
Forefoot reinforcement. The toe and medial sides are reinforced with the Drift Defense system. This component buffers these areas are prone to rubbing and grinding during serves, toe-drags, volleys, and rallies.
Responsive sole. The midsole isn’t designed to be too cushy, but it grants the wearer the ability to enjoy a good ground connection with its low-to-the-court structure. It has a minimum drop from the heel to the forefoot, which makes it similar to a flat shoe.
Supportive system. This all-court trainer is outfitted with a visible triple-density unit with the Tri-NRG technology. Such a dynamic concept is designed to neutralize impact in the heel area, provide rigid torque control for midfoot stability, and generate faster acceleration. The heel section featured a 180-degree Heelstab, a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) brace for improved rear side fit.
Durable forefoot fabric. High-performance Sprint SF is built for speed and competition. Head engineered this trainer with a tough-wearing, flexible, and lightweight forefoot cover known as SuperFabric. It doubles up as a supportive layer and an external shield that delays any possible signs of wear and tear caused by recurrent pounding on different surfaces.
Bootie construction. The outer membrane is structured into a seamless, one-piece sock support system with welded TPU films that’s flexible for maneuverability and comfort. Such a bootie-structured upper comes with a heel stabilizer that prevents the rearfoot from wobbling inside.
- SF means "SuperFabric."
- SuperFabric is also used in making military apparel. Such state-of-the-art technology fortifies the high-abrasion areas of military uniforms.
