One of the most sold Siux padel rackets is the Black Carbon model. Thanks to its main characteristics, which are maintained throughout the different versions, it is one of the most sought-after models by players who want to avoid elbow and wrist pain. We will know in depth the latest model, the Siux Black Carbon Luxury 12 K and what makes it different from previous editions.
Siux Black Carbon
Although the Black Carbon Luxury 12K is the latest release of this model, several different ones have been launched over the years. But what makes them not the same? In general, starting with the aspects in which they coincide, all the Black Carbon have a medium-high balance and a round shape, ideal for a polyvalent game.
The inner core
Regarding the core, the rubber used in the last version coincides with the one incorporated by the Siux Black Carbon Gloss Effect and Siux Black Carbon Mate Effect : EVA Soft rubber. This type of core is perfect for absorbing a large part of the vibrations and helps to control the ball better. However, the Siux Black Carbon Luxury has a Black EVA Ultra Soft rubber, so this model would be better for those who prefer a little less power and more speed in the ball output.
As for the frame, on this occasion the Luxury 12K is the same as its predecessors, as all the editions of this model include a bitubular carbon frame to offer greater resistance and durability. Thanks to its material, 100% carbon, these are more difficult to break in hits against the grille, glass or wall. The layouts are what makes the big difference in the Black Carbon Luxury 12K, since, as its name suggests, it uses 12K carbon fiber. This material achieves a greater hardness than the Black Carbon Luxury, which incorporates 21K carbon fiber on the sides, so in its case is more flexible and provides a greater output of ball.
Design and relief
Another very important difference is the finish of the padel rackets. While both Black Carbon Effect padel rackets have a relief finish thanks to the 3D Hexagon Face, both Black Carbon Luxury 12K and Luxury are smooth. Ultimately, the Luxury 12K is for a player who, although looking for versatility, likes a harder padel racket for attacking at the net and making offensive hits. Meanwhile, the Black Carbon Effect Luxury is an ideal model for players who, likewise, are looking for balance, but are more concerned with a great speed at the start of the ball and prefer to make good defensive shots at the bottom of the court. Finally, the two Black Carbon Effects are perfect for those who enjoy hitting with spin.
