The top layer of the Ozelot has more grip than rubbers from Germany or Japan, but is not sticky. It is also more elastic than typical rubbers from China.
The underlayer with a hardness of 44°-46° has a very strong built-in adhesive effect. However, the added power of the Ozelot is not due to chemicals that are only superficially added to the underlayer and thus diminish during play, but due to a new polymer integrated into the underlayer.
The built-in speed glue effect of the bottom layer is further enhanced by the high elasticity of the top layer.
The Ozelot is perfectly adapted to the European playing technique. He is more than fast enough to attack with power with enough control
The higher price is explained and justified by the polymer integrated into the underlayment.
There are 2 versions of the Ozelot: hard (hardness approx. 44-46 degrees) and medium (hardness approx. 42 - 44 degrees). The hard version is slightly faster than the softer version with slightly less control. The version offered here is the slightly harder version.
