Kettler has its set of patented technologies which make their tables stand apart from others. The Riga is no exception to that. Besides all the regular Kettler features, it has some additional features which only add to the efficiency of the table.
Kettler Riga – Top Quality Playing Surface
One of the key aspects of any table tennis table is the playing surface. The top of the Kettler Riga table has a cabinet grade, medium-density wood fibre board. This is complemented by the high content of resin. Both these factors ensure that you get just the optimum bounce while playing. They also add to the stability of the table.
Additionally, the top is coated with a layer of aluminium which makes it resistant to weather conditions. The Alum Tec Climate Control mechanism works by preventing contraction or expansion of the metallic structure in varying climate. At the same time, it has an anti-glare mechanism by which the top doesn’t reflect too much light. This way, the light doesn’t interfere with the visibility range of the players.
Built To Last
The Kettler Riga Pro is extremely resilient and durable and all efforts have being taken to maintain its strength. Usually, the edges of the table are most vulnerable to damage. But in this Kettler table tennis table, the edges are internally supported by square alluvium tubing. This keeps the table intact and the edges secure. The patented Safety Fold mechanism is installed to make sure that the table doesn’t open or close accidentally.
Storage is not an issue with this table due to its collapsible structure. In fact, owing to this, the table can also be used for individual playback by folding one side. Additionally, Kettler ping pong tables are designed to have a low centre of gravity which makes for greater stability and easier storage. The dual caster wheels are provided to facilitate transport of the table.
