We wanted to make it our aim to take the traditional preconceptions of cricketer and smash them to smithereens. No more ripples of applause. No more cream cakes. Just loud, in your face action, and a cricket bat to match. Welcome to the Shockwave Pro Performance cricket bat.

Designed for the T20 era, the Shockwave is as eye-catching as it is aggressive. This high-quality cricket bat puts Gray-Nicolls front and centre of the T20 revolution, giving you the tools you need to hit the ball to the rope time after time.

It comes with design traits that will allow you to go big, early. The Shockwave has a high middle and pronounced swell, which will allow you to hit the ball at the top of its bounce, up and over the in-field, all the way to the fence. Featuring intimidating edges, it won't matter if you slightly mistime the ball, this cricket bat has the power you need throughout.

The Shockwave Pro Performance bat features possibly our boldest sticker design to date. A fractured effect evokes a feeling of carnage, with the jagged lines drawing attention to the middle of the bat, further emphasising the size of the weapon in your hands. The cool blue colourway gives a distinctive finish and suggests the merciless manner in which you'll treat the bowlers.

Gray-Nicolls' product designers have used their long history in the game to craft this explosive cricket bat, with input from ambassadors such as Alex Hales and Joe Clarke. We wanted to create a bat that stood up to and surpassed the demands of modern cricket. We've achieved it.

All the Shockwave Pro Performance bats come from the highest quality English Willow grown and felled local to Robertsbridge, giving you the confidence that you are walking to the crease with the best cricket bat available.

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
