Li Ning first introduced Aeronaut tech in 2018. The Aeronaut tech platform built a special air stream channel in the racket head, which can reduce more air resistance. Therefore, the Aeronaut badminton racket can generate more faster shuttlecock speeds, which is suitable for badminton players who want best control.
There are 4 series in the Aeronault system including AT-D: Drive (Stiff); AT-B: Boost (Moderate); AT-C: Combat (Heavier) and AT-I: Instinct (Lighter).
Li-Ning Aeronaut DRIVE badminton rackets feature a stiffer shaft and highly elastic head design for rapid repulsion power. Suitable for fast players that are skilled in switching quickly between offence and defense.
Li-Ning Aeronaut BOOST badminton rackets feature moderate balance point and a medium shaft making them suitable for well-rounded and experienced players.
Li-Ning Aeronaut COMBAT rackets have a heavier head and a higher balance point. Suitable for very strong, aggressive players looking for MAXIMUM power.
The AERONAUT Technology Platform uses a 4-digit numbering system. The first digit determines the grade of the racket as follows:
If the first digit is 1, 2 or 3, the racket is suitable for beginners.
If the first digit is 4, 5 or 6, the racket is suitable for intermediate players.
If the first digit is 7, 8 or 9, the racket is suitable for advanced players.
