The Rapid Speed is a controlled offensive surface for all offensive players with European playing style (longer arm movements, game from half-distance with variable topspins). As with all Rapid pads, the upper rubber is slightly sticky, but the inward-facing bumps under the thin upper rubber are slightly longer and therefore even more elastic. As a result, the Rapid Speed is slightly slower than the Rapid Power, but also more spin-friendly and controlled. The medium hard sponge is the same as the Rapid Power, but is slightly softer (approx. 42 degrees). Medium dead weight.
Attention: This surface has been renamed KTL Rapid Speed by LKT Rapid Speed. However, the flooring is still 100% the same.
