The XIOM Axelo table tennis blade is named for "acceleration". This blade shares the same materials as its brothers, Strato and Ignito, and is the thickest among the three. Its top layer is Kiso Hinoki wood, which provides a very high level of energy efficiency as well as a comfortable feel. Newly developed Energy Carbon is inserted under this layer, which also provides very high energy efficiency. Overall thickness is about 7.5mm which, everybody can easily imagine, makes Axelo a very powerful blade. Players will be able to experience amazing speed, especially on direct hits. But Axelo isn't only suitable for hard smashes, it is also very good for top-spin or passive blocking. Strong topspin from any distance is the most important advantage of Axelo.
