A lighter version of Rafael Nadal's racquet of choice, the Babolat 2019 Pure Aero Team Tennis Racquet gets some nice upgrades and a beautiful bright yellow and black finish.
The driving force for the Aero series is the Aeromodular beam construction for less wind drag and increased racquet head speed.
This year’s Pure Aero Team incorporates Babolat’s Cortex Pure Feel to make the response a little more arm friendly at contact.
The tech comes from a partnership with SMAC, a company with long standing ties to the aerospace industry specializing in shock and vibration reduction. SMACWRAP, a thin viscoelastic rubber has been placed at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions of the Pure Aero Team for outstanding feel and comfort. Babolat is always innovating, and they are introducing the CARBON PLY STABILIZER to improve stability.
CPly Carbon was developed by Chomorat, a French industrial company, and added above the throat of the racquet for more precision and stability.
FSI Spin incorporates an open string pattern with oblong shaped grommets for easier access to spin while the established Woofer grommet system enhances the interaction between the ball and strings. The Pure Aero Team is about 10.5 ounces strung, 27 inches long, and features a 16x19 string pattern.
