The Dunlop BioFibre S8.1 Lite (115) Tennis Racquets update the Biomimetic S8.0 Lite. This frame offers a lightweight powerful update to the game improvement specification in the Dunlop line. The lightest option in the new BioFibre series, with a nice blend of power and comfort. Wide 24/26/25mm beam with the added forgiveness of a 115 sq. inch head and lighter 9.6 ounce strung weight. Dunlop technologies include BioFibre in which Dunlop has extracted the stem fibers from plants and woven them into portions of the shaft of the frame. New updates to BioFibre technology provides a cleaner more solid hit and enhances racquet feel. The M2.1 continues the use of Aeroskin Cx to reduce aerodynamic drag, making the racquet faster through the air and MoS2 grommets for more efficient string movement.
Geared to the beginning to intermediate player with a slow swing, the Dunlop BioFibre S8.1 Lite offers a lighter static weight and oversized head for added forgiveness. 330 swingweight ensures stability without sacrificing maneuverability. Open 16×19 string pattern for added sweetspot and comfort.

- BIOFIBRE: Superior natural fibres in the throat and handle have been extracted from the stems of plants. These are designed to increase racquet stability and reduce unwanted shock, producing 18% greater feel and control.
- Aeroskin CX: This technology is inspired by shark skin. The unique surface application is strategically applied to the racquet frame. The dimpled texture creates localized turbulence and streamlines airflow over the racquet surface for an aerodynamic effect. This reduces drag by up to 36%, an 11% increase from previous Aeroskin Technology, resulting in a faster racquet speed for more power, maneuverability and reaction time.
- MoS2 Grommets: Inspired by snake skin, a unique self-lubricating polymer blend that is designed to reduce string friction for 27% greater power and increased abrasion resistance for 40% greater durability. Greater string movement + reduced friction = greater power + greater durability.
- CX GROMMETS: Pocketed grommets around the hoop allow for smooth airflow around the racquet beam cross section. It helps make the 3.0 up to 8% more aerodynamic than the previous model for greater racquet head speed.
