The Miken Freak Maxload is a 20-year anniversary edition bat from Miken—and there’s definitely reason to celebrate with this bat’s high-quality design and performance enhancing technologies.

This particular bat will feature the standard 2 and 1/4 barrel diameter, but with an extra long 14 inch barrel length, which differs from the usual 12 inch barrel length you would see from other Miken bats. This bat incorporates Miken’s signature maxload feel, with a 0.5 ounce end-load that makes it perfect for power hitters who like a little more weight in their swing for those extra-hard hits.

The Miken Freak Maxload pulls no punches with an unbelievable 4-piece design to virtually eliminate bat vibration, optimizing flex and responsiveness beyond what most bats—with one or two-piece constructions—could ever dream of. Between the barrel and handle, Miken has applied their Sensi-Flex technology to eliminate hand sting, increase bat speed through the zone, and improve control and barrel loading.

This bat uses Miken’s signature 100% comp formula, made from premium aerospace grade fibers to maximize durability and performance. The Freak Maxload also takes advantage of a double-walled barrel design, and Tetra-Core technology to enhance the sweet spot and give you excellent pop on contact.
