The most versatile racket ever designed by Babolat is back! Power and control are not left out thanks to the high density carbon fibers present in the frame (GT technology). Your shots are heavier without this feeling of loss of control at the end of the movement because the weight is increased at the head of the racquet. True to its predecessors, the Babolat Pure Drive will suit tennis players of all levels: from beginners to pro players!
Adaptable to all styles of play, its stability at impact and the feel it provides will inevitably attract aggressive baseline players, who like to dictate rallies with speed and spin. Moreover, its FSI Power (Frame String Interaction) technology improves responsiveness on impact with the ball thanks to diamond-shaped eyelets. The sweet spot is higher than with older Pure Drive models and the string pattern has been tightened. The result is amazing with a ball that comes out very alive from the racket.
In terms of playability, the open 16×19 string pattern improves your touch on the ball and the comfort you have when hitting. With the relatively forgiving 645cm² screen, your balls are powerful and you can generate a lot more spin because the strings have enough room to move and ‘brush’ the ball. With easy spin and great stability on impact, this is a true baseline racquet.
Babolat also worked on the frame of its racket (Elliptic Beam) for more comfort from the baseline. Rather rigid, the Pure Drive is a real nice combination of power and stability. At the net and in the touch game, its weight, the sensations of speed provided, and its great stability, make it a formidable weapon for both novices and seasoned volleyers. With its Cortex technology (an innovative material used particularly in the aerospace industry), the Babolat Pure Drive does a great job in absorbing vibrations that could interfere with your game and you are able to focus 100% on your goal: victory!
