Sports and sporting equipment will be a major beneficiary of the technological advantages that nanotube technologies can provide. Lighter and stronger equipment in sports such as baseball, cycling and and tennis are examples of this.
Contact sports will enjoy greater protection from the flexible, yet strong properties of nanotube fibres which are lighter than ever, meaning that athletes will be well protected without the movement restrictions or weight they may have previously encountered.
In endurance sports, equipment will have longer life spans and withstand more impact than ever. Sports apparel and equipment will take new properties that were previously impossible to enhance the experience of both recreational and professional sportspeople.
