The New Babolat Drive Z 118 Launching August 2007

August 7, 2007

The Babolat Drive Z 118 tennis racquet is designed for club players looking for power and maneuverability. It is a lightweight, yet powerful racquet, and, with the addition of the Cortex technology, this is also an extremely comfortable racquet.

Three Key Technologies:

Cortex System — “Enjoy the pure feel”:

The Cortex System is the first technology customized to filter different vibrations. This exclusive Babolat material has the ability to filter and dampen. The handle and the frame of the racquet are linked by one interface in the C.D.S. (Cortex Dampening System), which allows the filter to absorb the unnecessary vibrations for a purer feel.

Smart Grip — “Comfort and control in your hand”:

This innovative ergonomic grip offers optimized contact between the grip and the hand.

Elliptic Geometry:

This is the optimal design to guarantee the best torsion resistance: +20% stiffer compared to a traditional beam. Better maneuverability, more power.
