Pre-Order Yours Now! Shipments start going out on August 24th!!!

The Pure Drive 2018 offers top-flight speed, power and spin for advanced and intermediate players of all play styles. The Babolat Pure Drive is one of the most popular and versatile racquets ever designed, no surprise it's a best seller. Its slightly heftier 11.2 ounce weight, this racquet's overall balance of playability and ease of movement cut across ability levels and stroke styles all stronger players The new 2018 version of the Pure Drive, Babolat retools the string bed with FSI Power Technology, which includes diamond shaped grommet holes and wider string spacing for a larger sweet spot and even better spin. Babolat also updates its Cortex dampening system with a viscoelastic rubber from the aerospace world for better dampening, comfort, and ball feel. Groundstrokes with this 2018 version of the Pure Drive offers even more controllable power and deft maneuverability. The more aggressive players love this frame from the back-court, net, and on the serve. The wider string spacing also sends the ball on a higher trajectory with increased spin, so excellent depth and speed are assured. The 2018 Pure Drive is quick at the net with put-away power in good supply. All these new frame features combine to make this one a solid contender, especially for its weight class. Serving offers controllable power with excellent spin for pinpoint placement that will drive opponents mad. Babolat has made some worthy changes to an already rock-solid frame, placing the new 2018 Pure Drive on an even higher level. This racquet is perfect for all the hard hitters out there, no matter style or ability level...and the new graphics really seal the deal!

Woofer Technology

THE FIRST DYNAMIC SYSTEM THAT MAKES THE FRAME AND THE STRINGS AN  INTERACT ING UNit WHEN  DYNAMICALLY STRIKING THE BALL!

A tennis racket is a frame with strings. The frame is basically static and holds the driving force of the racquet - the strings - in place. The strings are attached to both sides of the frame. Only some strings are active when struck by the ball. This means that racquets do not deliver their full potential. Babolat set out to imagine a racquet optimizing the frame and the strings - to invent a frame which permits all the strings to work together to their full potential when striking the ball.

The WOOFER technology eliminates string restriction of movement so the strings can now move more freely.

- The whole surface area reacts on impact: with the WOOFER technology, more strings work together when striking the ball. The strings are interactive. This increases sweetspot size, improving forgiveness during off-center shots and absorbing much of the shock produced during ball impact.
PISTON FUNCTION

- An Increase in the Trampoline Effect: The piston function enables greater surface deformation on impact, delivering about 10% more power and ensuring that the strings retain their energy for a longer time.

- Shock Absorption: The piston action acting like a suspension system to dampen unwanted vibration.

Cortex
Babolat's Cortex shaft vibration dampening system offers greater comfort during play on all shots. Available in two versions, the Cortex system used in the Pure series of racquets reduces harmful racquet vibrations without filtering out the feedback required for feel. The result of filtering unnecessary vibrations results in what Babolat calls a "pure feel." The Cortex system used in other Babolat racquets filters and dampens for maximum comfort.

For the 2017-2018 Pure Drives Babolat intorduces the most evolved version of Cortex technology to date, called Cortex Pure Feel. For this version, Babolat partnered with a company called SMAC, which supplied a thin viscoelastic rubber that is uniquely tailored to absorbing impact vibration. According to Babolat, it also provides a great sound and more direct feel. Tennis meets aerospace technology for a marked improvement.


Elliptic Geometry
Babolat's Elliptic Design promises no twisting, no bending and no added weight to your racquet. It provides:

- Greater resistance to torque and flex (+20% compared to a traditional frame design) with no added weight.

- Power with exceptional maneuverability.

GT Technology
GT construction provides excellent stability at ball impact. The additional rigidity provided by this technology allows for more power and precision, making it perfect for modern fast swinging, hard hitting players.


EVO BEAM
Varied beam thickness for less torque at ball impact and better responsiveness.


FSI POWER Technology
Wider spacing between the cross strings to boost power, spin, comfort and playability!

For the 2017-2018 Pure Drives only, Babolat adds diamond shaped grommets to the FSI Power technology. This gives the strings a greater range of movement, resulting in a further increase in power and comfort and larger sweet spot.
