Traditional cricket bat handles are made of cane with rubber for absorbing shock. John and team have developed a new handle made of a carbon fibre shell containing a polymer insert that absorbs ...
More Carbon Fiber Handle Cricket Bat images
The second is the carbon-fibre composite bat handles produced by Newbery, Puma, and Gray Nicolls from 2006. These bats were rendered illegal by the rule-change, a move which might have served to protect the spirit and balance of the game had a new Mongoose bat not appeared in 2008 and been declared legal. I’ll explain.
At the time of the ban, Kookaburra was experimenting with a fibreglass handle, while researchers at RMIT University’s School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering had developed a carbon fibre handle with a polymer insert that reduced vibration by 42 per cent. Designing the Elevar bat. None of that is permitted now.
Some cricket bat manufacturers insert additional carbon fibre into the handle of the cricket bat to make the bat feel lighter in the hands. The insertion of carbon fibre also allows more power to...
This work had been intended to set and determine the geometrical parameters for a referenced cricket bat handle for our purpose, due to geometric variations found in the handles.

In 2005 Kookaburra released a new type of bat that had a carbon fibre-reinforced polymer support down the spine of the bat. It was put on the bat to provide more support to the spine and blade of the bat, thus prolonging the life of the bat. The first player to use this new bat in international cricket was Australian Ricky Ponting.

#2 Carbon backed Kookaburra Cricket Bat In 2005 Australian captain Ricky Ponting’s bat came under scrutiny for a thin strip of carbon graphite which was attached to the back of the blade. The bat had been regularly used by Australian team mates Justin Langer and Damien Martyn.
