These NEW Babolat tennis rackets celebrate Rafa Nadal's long standing partnership with Babolat. His racket of choice for the past 15 years and he used this model to win his 20th Grand Slam. The ideal racquet for the advanced player looking to generate a lot of spin as well as power. They are brand new for 2021 in this vibrant colourway, using revolutionary technology and a major change from the previous Aeropro Drive. The Babolat Pure Aero racquets enables players to maximise their spin without losing any of the power in their swing. Now featuring SMAC technology with Cortex pure feel to give better vibration dampening, resulting in the pure feel and fantastic sound!
The Babolat Pure Aero Rafa Nadal 2021 tennis racquet is designed to give players the ultimate weapon for spin! The new pure aero provide greater stability and control while still giving enormous amounts of spin and power. Thanks to SMAC's upgraded SMACWRAP technology, Babolat have developed new Cortex Pure Feel which is featured at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock on the racket head, which gives better vibration dampening thanks to the integrated cortex in the graphite.
Babolat believe the interaction between strings and the ball is crucial, the longer the ball is in contact with the strings, the grater potential for spin. Therefore, the have developed FSI Spin I, this has created a broader weave in the string bed as well as oblong grommets at the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock position to create more movement in the strings to help add more spin.
A new aerodynamic frame integrating bumper and grommets and the very best design to increase racket head speed and give every player more spin.
The result is more power and spin from a 300g racket. Rafa Nadal's racket of choice. This racket has a nickname, THE SPIN MACHINE!
Aeromodular3 - With the Woofer system built inside the mid-section of the new frame, the racket is even more aerodynamic (+11%) and offers greater racket head speed
FSI Spin I - A more open string pattern with a redefined sweet spot and new oblong grommets at 6 and 12 o'clock allow for more string movement to generate maximum spin.
Carbon Ply Stabilizer - Powered by Chomarat - The latest generation of high performance carbon fibres for better accuracy and stability on every single shot.
Cortex Pure Feel - A CDS (Cortex Dampening System) interface transmits useful information to the player and the handle design brings that information closer to the player's hand for perfect control on every hit and prevents harmful vibrations that can cause injuries such as tennis elbow. Unlike the previous Aeropro Drive, this is built into the frame. Now powered by SMAC to give even greater vibration dampening thanks to SMAC material integrated into the graphite of the racket.
Woofer System - The first and most effective frame-string link system: a longer ball/string contact time for greater control and a sensation of comfort. This is also built into the frame with he Pure Aero.
A lighter version of the Pure Aero is available - the Babolat Pure Aero Team tennis racket
