Greg Gaultier Squash Racket
Dunlop Biomimetic Elite squash racket, which is used by Greg, current world #1. Though he may actually be playing with an earlier model of a similar racket the Dunlop Custom ICE Elite and had it spray-painted to look like the Biomimetic Elite.
Name: Dunlop Biomimetic Elite
Manufacturer: Dunlop squash
Weight: Light (135 grams)
This is the Adidas Adipower Stabil 11
A solid all round indoor sports shoe that is used by Greg and has been for quite a number of years now. Many of the elite players are turning to this shoe because of the stability and grip it offers them when moving so dynamically into and out of the corners.
- adiTUFF – This is an abrasion resistant material in the toe-upper. This is where indoor court shoes seem to wear out quickest due to dragging of the feet. This increases durability.
- Outer Material: Other Leather
- Inner Material: Manmade
- Sole: Gum Rubber
- Closure: Speed-Laces
- Shoe Width: Regular
- Energysling – Wraps the top of the foot, stretching and springing back during side to side movements so energy loss is minimized.
- Ring Core Dual Density EVA – Offers additional power and speed enhancing multi-directional movements.
- Motion Guiding System – Stability system which enhances movement power when hitting the court hard.
- Sprintweb Mesh Upper – Lightweight fibers strap and secure your foot for ultimate control

Greg’s clothing sponsor is Dunlop and he uses a variety of their clothing lines, the good news is that they are all available pretty cheaply.
Greg has been using these for a couple of years now to aid recovery, movement balance and protect against injury.
The BV SPORT research and development centre, with its many scientific studies, proved that the pressure put on the lower limbs varies depending on the type and thickness of the living biological tissues of which they are composed. These tissues act as a pressure shock absorber (muscles and fat) or are otherwise incompressible (bones and, to a lesser extent, tendons and nerves).
These innovative factors have enabled us to design meshes of variable levels of rigidity (flexible/semi-rigid/rigid), which have been incorporated into the production of our compression ranges (Booster and ProRecup) since 2004.
Selective compression respects athletes’ anatomy and physiology, optimises muscular biomechanics during movement, improves venous return, limits extraneous vibrations and oscillations, decreases the risk of stiffness and DOMS and raises the fatigue threshold.
