In the vast world of Pickleball paddles, every so often a product emerges that promises to redefine the standards. One such product is Selkirk Sport's Luxx Control Air, an innovative paddle that has rapidly gained accolades for being the epitome of control in Pickleball gameplay. Endorsed by tennis maestro and Selkirk athlete, Jack Sock, the Luxx Control Air is a game-changer. Here’s why:

1. A Response to a Long-neglected Need

For years, the Pickleball industry seemed primarily obsessed with power paddles, leaving players craving control somewhat underserved. Selkirk Sport, recognizing this vacuum, poured hours into research, development, and testing, resulting in the Luxx Control Air - a paddle that perfectly balances power and control, ensuring the needs of tacticians and strategists are met with finesse.

2. Transformative Florek Carbon Fiber Technology

One of the standout features of the Luxx Control Air is the Florek Carbon Fiber technology. It not only expands the paddle's sweet spot but also enhances power play, ensuring optimal on-court performance. This innovation is especially beneficial for tennis players transitioning to Pickleball, allowing them to harness their tennis skills effectively.

3. 20mm X7 Thikset Honeycomb Core

Building on Selkirk’s pioneering Labs Project 003, the Luxx Control Air integrates the revered 20mm X7 Thikset Honeycomb core. This unique core design significantly reduces paddle torquing during blocking drives, providing players with increased power and control, and a consistent feel on every shot. It’s no wonder that tennis star Jack Sock, with his eye for precision and detail, aligns himself with such meticulous engineering.

4. 360° Proto Molding & Enhanced Aero-DuraEdge Edgeless Technology

With the proprietary 360° Proto Molding technology, the Luxx Control Air delivers unmatched power and a uniform feel on every hit. Paired with the upgraded Aero-DuraEdge Edgeless technology, this paddle promises increased edge reliability during high-octane games, ensuring every shot counts.

5. Versatility for All Player Types

The Luxx Control Air speaks to a broad spectrum of players, but it's especially fitting for those transitioning from tennis to Pickleball. Jack Sock's endorsement of the Luxx brand underscores the paddle's adaptability, making it easier for tennis players to leverage their existing skills in a new game setting.

6. Legacy of the Ryder Cup

Selkirk Sport's commitment to aligning with the iconic spirit of sports is evident in their special Ryder Cup colorway edition of the Luxx Control Air. It's not just a paddle; it's a celebration of sportsmanship, history, and passion.

7. A Testament to Selkirk's Innovation

The Luxx Control Air stands as a testament to Selkirk's commitment to innovative design and supreme quality. Every feature of the paddle, from its Air Dynamic Throat to its ThroatFlex design, is a result of Selkirk’s unwavering dedication to pushing boundaries and setting new industry standards.


In Conclusion:

The Luxx Control Air isn't just another paddle in the market; it's the future of Pickleball gameplay. Endorsed by tennis star and Selkirk athlete Jack Sock, it brings together the best of both worlds - tennis and Pickleball - ensuring that players experience unmatched control, precision, and power with every game. For those in search of the ultimate control paddle, the Luxx Control Air is, without doubt, the pinnacle of Pickleball engineering.
