For this new generation of the iconic Pure Drive Tennis Racquet, Babolat has enhanced the legendary power on every shot that competitive, demanding players have come to expect from this racket, while offering the best possible feel through a unique management of vibrations and unrivaled comfort. Two key Babolat innovations make it possible: FSI Power and Cortex Pure Feel. FSI POWER TECHNOLOGY: Players need to sustain power in any situation against every type of opponent. The new Pure Drive includes an optimized FSI Power string pattern and new diamond grommets to provide a larger sweet spot. The result is maximum power on every shot, even when off-centered. Babolat’s FSI Power gives players the necessary confidence to attempt everything on court, and more importantly, to perform at their highest level. CORTEX PURE FEEL: The brand’s vibration absorption technology, Cortex, provides useful information to players, bringing sensations closer to the hand. Thanks to a bold technological partnership, the new Pure Drive features an evolution of this concept to achieve an optimal feeling. GT TECHNOLOGY: Graphite Tungsten constructions provides excellent power and control at ball impact. ELLIPTIC BEAM: An elliptical frae shape provides torsional stbility for optimal power. Babolat joined forces with SMAC, an innovative French aerospace company excelling in an industry that needs power but also minimal vibrations, just like the Pure Drive in tennis. The result is better vibration dampening thanks to new material integrated in the graphite of the racket that provides an incredible sound and more direct feel during the game.
