This year too, our partner Babolat is continuing the success story of the Babolat Pure Drive tennis racket and improving it further to support your game and take your tennis to the next level. The Pure Drive series belongs to one of the bestselling rackets in the world and the brand new Pure Drive 2018 is getting yet another technological update. The Babolat Pure Drive is most loved because of its power. The brand is now reinforcing that power with two new technologies: Cortex Pure Feel and FSI Power.


SMAC’s Cortex Pure Feel technology improves vibration damping during and right after a shot. The integrated new material in the graphite frame dampens impact better, so you enjoy a more direct feel of the racket and the ball. FSI Power technology consists of a new stringing pattern and diamond grommets. Together, these enlarge the sweetspot, in turn maximising the power even when you don’t achieve a perfect angle between the racket and ball.

Apart from these new technologies that will improve your game, our partner Babolat is also making a statement with the design of the racket. The Pure Drive has always been known as a blue racket, and the 2018 model will be continuing the tradition. The bright blue colour is supposed to inspire confidence in the player. Matching this idea, Babolat has launched this new racket with the slogan “Fear nothing”. The first players to use the new Babolat Pure Drive are Garbiñe Muguruza (SPA), Fabio Fognini (ITA) and Mikael Ymer (SWE). We already have this amazing Babolat racket in our selection, so you can get kitted out like the pros.
