New Babolat Pure Aero

July 29, 2015

For more than 10 years Babolat has been the pioneer of spin, leading the industry in developing tennis equipment dedicated to helping players optimize spin into their game. In 2003, Babolat introduced the first aerodynamic racket designed for topspin. Adopted by Rafael Nadal in 2005, the storied Aeropro Drive has been the choice of champions including Caroline Wozniacki and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Babolat followed its spin racket line with the first string optimized for spin, RPM Blast.

Today, Babolat ushers in new era of spin with the introduction of the Babolat Pure Aero racket. A result of extensive Babolat R&D, the brand’s Pure Aero racket represents a new dimension for spin, and the game.


Demands of the modern game require players to be more aggressive; find sharper angles; hit more powerful shots, while keeping the ball in play. Babolat’s new Pure Aero is the innovation that will allow players to take advantage of the topspin this racket offers, and grab an edge over their opponents.

The Pure Aero brings a significant enhancement to the previous generation of Aero rackets. The name – Pure Aero – along with the new design and technologies reflect a total renewal of Babolat’s global best-selling racket.

Dedicated to racket sports, Babolat works closely with players to understand the evolution of the game for developing products that meet their needs. In developing the Pure Aero range, Babolat efforts zeroed in on player strokes and movements needed for optimal topspin, identifying two key moments: preparation and ball impact.

Step 1: Preparation – Speed of the Racket

The faster the racket moves through the air, the more topspin a player can generate.

Step 2: Ball Impact – Movement of Strings

Mains on the string pattern give movement to the ball. The more they are able to move, the more topspin a player can generate on the ball. To optimize spin during these steps, the new Pure Aero incorporates two new technologies: Aeromodular2 and FSI Spin.

Aeromodular2 (patent pending) technology improves aerodynamics for faster racket speed (according to internal tests). To create more speed through the air, the new frame is optimized and wind resistance is decreased thanks to the integration of the Woofer system and Cortex inside the frame.

To improve the movement of strings, the Pure Aero features new FSI Spin technology with a redefined sweet spot, oblong grommets at 6 and 12 o’clock and a more open string pattern for increased strings movement.

The Pure Aero is easily recognized by its “Aero yellow” and black color palette representing creativity and power in a sleek, pure design.
