Features and Benefits –Wilson K factor (K)Zero

The K factor

The (K) stands for Zero’s new proprietary Wilson technologies. This technology works hand in hand with the next generation in Nanotechnology with peculiar frame innovations and control. This particular racket now comes with (K)ompact Center technology, (K)ontour Yoke, and the (K)arophite Black construction. The K-factor sums up the features of this racket. These features are thoroughly described below.

These concepts are responsible for the nice feel, enhanced stability as well as the firm handling maneuverability. The Kompact Center tech is responsible for the frame structure that was created through a process of nanoscopic level for stability and solid feel. Its fibers a uniquely weaved in the frame design, and this makes the frame stiff. It, in turn, reduces the torsional twist and then gives little or no power loss off-center shots. 

The (K)ontour  Yoke is for the stiffness at significant stress points of the racket for stability. This also adds to the reduction of torsional twist and loss of power during shots. The (K)arophite Black construction is a quality material that works for the combination of the power grooves and power holes tech that provides the controlled power. This is made possible by the manipulation of repositions and string movement after shots. It combines Carbon Black from the nCode rackets with the SiO2 molecules to offer a dense and strong racket.

This racket is powerful as it is considered oversize with a head size of 118sq. This provides the racket with a large sweet spot that gives way for forceful shots even if the ball does not land at the center of the racket. The nice feel of this racket makes sure the generation of power takes less energy. It is lightweight, which enables the racket to be less energetic, very maneuverable, and has fast swings. When you consider the head size and the length of this racket, you realize that the Wilson K factor is indeed lightweight.


The focus of this racket is mainly the powerful shots made with less energy and the way players can easily maneuver it. The lightweight feature of 9.1 ounces when strung makes it a great option for players generally. It also improves your mobility while making sure you hit shots on time. So if you are in search of a racket that improves your chances with little or no energy of yours, then this is the racket for you. Or you want a racket that is very light and is stiff at the same time, then Wilson K factor Kzero is the racket for you!
