BABOLAT PURE DRIVE + RACQUET
This very versatile racquet is especially stable on impact thanks to the 12.6in (32cm) balance and the reinforced elliptical throat. This relatively stiff (72 Ra) racquet has very little torque on impact, to reproduce maximum energy. The result? A powerful racquet that'll let you generate heavy shots to keep your opponents on their toes. A new material from the aerospace industry, SMACWRAP, has been integrated into the graphite to dampen vibrations and optimise playing comfort. The 16x19 string pattern with Frame String Interaction (FSI) technology is tighter to increase string resilience upon ball impact.
Extended to 27.5in (70cm) in length for more power thanks to a more substantial lever arm especially for backhand shots and serves, this racquet will nevertheless offer more reliable manoeuvrability than 27in / 68.5-cm long models.
Type of Player:
- Aggressive baseline players who like to dictate points
Cortex Pure Feel: Babolat and SMAC (French Aerospace Company) have developed a new material, SMACWRAP, used in the aerospace industry to dampen vibrations. The material, integrated into the racquet's graphite frame, dampens vibrations on impact, producing a soft sound and procuring outstanding feel.
FSI Power: The new string pattern associated with diamond-shaped grommets increases the sweetspot to gain power and centre the ball more easily.
GT Technology: The high-density carbon fibres provide this racquet with optimal resistance for more power and control.
Elliptic Beam: The elliptical shaped frame at the throat of the racquet optimises resistance to torsion for more stability and more powerful, controlled shots.
