If you have a cricket bat that you trust implicitly, your performance can only be improved. The Supernova InfraRed 5 Star Lite is the bat that you will trust to take your performance to the next level.

The red sticker sweeps down the spine of the bat and appears to double the thickness of the blade. The truth is, for all the wood that goes into the Supernova, the Lite edition feels light as a feather. It's time for bowlers to worry.

This is a cricket bat for a true craftsman, but it doesn't compromise on power. It is shaped and contoured by our bat makers to maximise hand speed, but with a sweet spot that will give you the ability to hit the ball over the rope.

The Supernova Infrared 5 Star Lite can be used at any level of cricket, perfect perhaps for high level junior or club cricket. It will afford batsmen slightly more time to play their shot, given the weight (or lack thereof) of their blade. Optimising the balance of this bat was our fundamental aim here, and we are delighted with the result of months of refining work that went into it.

Design wise, the asymmetric red and black face stickers give a dynamic look to the Supernova InfraRed. However, the classic Gray-Nicolls chequerboard design keeps the iconic look of cricket's oldest brand.

The 5 Star Line Supernova InfraRed bat is from the grade 1 English willow grown and felled by us in Sussex. Your blade will be clean and tightly grained, with a weight that will leave your teammates asking "where can I get one?"

All bats in the Supernova Infrared range will be quality controlled at our home in Robertsbridge before being are sent out to you.

The Supernova Infrared 5 Star Light affords the ability to manoeuvre the ball around as well as clear the boundary rope. We can't wait to see the results.

Picking the right bat for you

Picking the right bat for you

When selecting a cricket bat, it's crucial that you pick one that is the correct size for the player. If it's too small or too big, batting will be uncomfortable and performance will be compromised.

Bat size is based on the height of the player. Take a look at our handy Size Guide to see which bat size you should choose.

SH = Short Handle

LH = Long Handle

LB = Long Blade

SM = Small Men's

Common Questions

How do I care for my bat?

We recommend knocking your cricket bat in before use. You may also want to add a layer of linseed oil. Store your bat in a dry place when not in use.

See our blog on how to care for your new cricket bat including tips on adding linseed oil and replacing scuff sheets here.

How do I knock my bat in?

Using an old ball in a sock or a Deluxe Bat Mallet, hit the face of your cricket bat to condition the wood. You can also hit the edges of the bat with glancing blows, and gently hit the toe. You do not need to knock in the splice (top) of the bat.

Watch our knocking-in guide here
