Babolat Pure Strike
The new Babolat Pure Strike range displays two major cutting-edge technologies: C² PURE FEEL (powered by SMAC) for a cutting-edge feel and CONTROL FRAME TECHNOLOGY for unrivalled control and stability.
Powered by SMAC, C2 PureFeel is the latest generation of the Pure Feel technology, a cutting-edge vibration filtration lay-up system that brings a pure feel on every shot.
Control Frame Technology was developed to ensure maximum control. This technology combines the stability of a square beam frame with the dynamism of a regular elliptic structure.
The Babolat Pure Strike is more flexible and reactive than the other Babolat tennis racket series. This series has been built to give intermediate and advanced tennis players a real advantage in terms of control and sensations. If you are offensive and you want to boost your game, the Babolat Pure Strike 98 has been designed to give you more power on the court.
You will get great control and stability with the Babolat Pure Strike 98. With its Control Frame Technology, you have the opportunity to become offensive and dominate your opponent. It is by taking the bull by the horns that you will achieve victory. From the first balls, you will get the opportunity to put pressure on your partner and give them no respite. With this tennis racket, attack the net or stay at the baseline by distributing your balls aggressively.
The second technology integrated in this model is the C2 Pure Feel system. This latest version of the Pure Feel process has been designed in line with the SMAC which is the racquet’s anti-vibration system. It will give you an extraordinary feeling with each stroke. By being confident in the court, you will have your head on your shoulders and be able to choose the best strategy to employ against your competitors.
The technical characteristics of this racket are optimal to adapt to all types of game. The head of 630 cm² and the string pattern of 16×19 will give versatility to your attacking shots which will be unexpected and, therefore, surprise your opponent. The power will be provided by the weight of the racket. Indeed, 305 g is an ideal weight for experienced players who know how to generate power, as well as handle powerful shots.

This Babolat Pure Strike is full of surprises and new technologies. Combining responsiveness, energy, stability and control, this is a racquet intended for all tennis players playing inside the court and going forward. Tolerance has also been improved by slightly inward curving the frame for an enlarged sweet spot.
Babolat has also developed several technologies to take this racquet to another dimension compared to its predecessor. With FSI Power technology, the crosses are more widely spaced than before to increase ball / string contact time and give you more power. The 16×19 design also allows you to generate more spin on the ball.
Thanks to the new Control Frame construction, the Babolat Pure Strike 16×19 offers more control when hitting the ball than the previous version. On the court, you feel a better balance between control and punching power. The new C2 Pure Feel technology reduces vibrations when hitting the ball for better playing sensations due to the integration of a new material.
Finally, the 305 grams and neutral balance complete this technological masterpiece which, in the right hands, will bring sufficient explosiveness to hit winners after winners. The 630cm² frame will require good technique but, in return, will offer a lot of precision to players who like to move forward. In the end, the new slim but rigid frame shape (21-23-21mm) will offer maximum power and spin (as it will bend less) for a very dynamic shot.
