Profile of the Head Sprint 3.0 Clay

Who is it best for? Fostered with performance-based benefits in one of the most lightweight structures, the Head Sprint Pro 3.0 Clay is ideal for dedicated tennis players looking for an ultimate technical shoe for clay surface. Specifically, it taps the following types of consumers:

  • intermediate players who want to harness their tennis potential in full speed at short distances
  • swift movers who are critical about stability on the clay court
  • committed players seeking for a clay trainer with optimal breathability 
  • clay court grinders who slide and glide often and need a shoe with reliable traction


Solid rubber base. Labeled as the Hybrasion+, this outsole rubber compound is assembled to be resistant to immediate wear. Such a technology generated by the brand displays a sharp, full-length herringbone tread pattern. Hybrasion+ intends to adhere to the clay surface as the user makes sudden stops, sprints, and swift pivots.

Stable framework.  Head incorporated a stability trigger on the lateral section to keep the foot flat and balance when moving side to side. 

Protective layer. Aggressive toe dragging can ruin the high-wear perimeter of the shoe easily. The brand reinforced these zones using the Drift Defense technology. Such a feature utilizes a polyurethane layer of protective wrapping around the forefoot and medial side to extend its lifespan. 

Breathable structure. This premium performance footgear is formulated with a Cooling System that allows air to permeate through the rubber sole and into the footwear. It’s intended to lower down the temperature inside the shoe, especially during prolonged drills and games. 


Triple-density foam. The middle horizontal slice of the shoe features the Tri-NRG system, which is a triple-density ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) property. Such an innovative concept is prepared to dampen the impact on the heel, maintain midfoot stability with a 3D anti-torsion shank, and achieve optimal spring back with its rebound foam.  

Better court connection. The minimal heel-to-toe offset is a plus for players who need trainers with a low-to-the-ground sole composition. This midsole height permits the wearer to feel connected to the court, especially when taking big lunges and making short steps. 


Sock-like structure. Considered as the lightest Head tennis shoe when it was released, the clay-specific Sprint Pro 3.0 has an outer membrane made of breathable mesh that’s welded with strong microfibers. Its seam-free structure isn’t only airy and light but supportive too. 

Stable foothold. The sock construction is constructed to embrace the foot for a more lockdown fit. Triangular shaped midfoot Deltastraps are integrated into its lacing system for enhanced stability and individualized fit. 

Extra comfort and stability. For a heightened level of comfort, the shoe is kitted out with molded ethylene vinyl acetate sockliner. The Heelstab 180˚, a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) heel counter, that’s placed at the back of the foot, is meant to work as a stabilizing brace.
