Head Delta Motion characteristics
Below we review the Head Delta Motion and the racket’s features. In addition to the features, the racket is aesthetically beautiful with fine lines and nice coloring.
|Game Level||Beginner – advanced|
|Weight||350 – 360 g|
One of the distinguishing features of this racket from Head is that it has been equipped with the Auxetic technology, which provides a cushioning effect on every ball hit and at the same time an extra dose of power to the player. At its core is Power Foam, which also helps to provide power to the balls in every stroke.
The balance point is at medium level, which can give good effect to this diamond-shaped racket when rushing at the net to get balls away with proper power or when you want to hit away the high balls with both power and speed. At the same time, it can provide some help when retrieving low balls from floor level.
The diamond shape of this model gives it more rigidity and strength for the player, so the strokes can be more powerful in the offensive game.
Hard or soft?
It’s a hard package with the diamond shape, medium balance and a core that promises extra power when hitting the ball. This hard racket will be a very good help to get in hits with both power and speed.
What level of player is the Head Delta Motion suitable for?
You may need a little more experience in the game to be able to handle this racket to the best of your ability, but it can also be a good option for the recreational player who wants to get further in their offensive game.
Is the racket best suited for offensive or defensive play?
There are many strong advantages for the player’s offensive game with this model from Head. Even though the balance point is not up at the top, this tough package can still give the player decent power to get high balls away with proper impact.
Information about the Adidas brand
Head was founded by Howard Head in 1950, because he wanted to produce his own handmade metal skis. Once they were launched, he quickly realised that he had to put some extra effort into marketing his skis to make athletes realise the good qualities of the skis.
The company later began producing accessories for other sports, starting with tennis in 1968. This was later followed by the sport of padel, which is similar to tennis in many respects. Today, you can see some new technologies on their latest models, which promise both better durability and more power for the player.

Our review for Head Delta Motion
Mikael Rohana from Elitepadel has tested the Head Delta Motion and gives the following review and rating:
“A top rack with advanced features that is mainly aimed at the offensive player who likes to decide the score in the overhead game or in his smashes. When I tested the Head Delta Motion 2022, I felt that the racket was very offensive in its characteristics but thanks to its slightly lighter weight, I felt that the racket was also very easy to maneuver. A racket that I would definitely recommend to the more advanced lady or gentleman looking for a top offensive racket.“
