Babolat introduces a new 2018 update to the iconic Pure Drive. Babolat’s new updated version of the Pure Drive provides a newly improved vibration dampening system known as Cortex Pure Feel. The new Cortex Pure Feel technology offers better vibration dampening thanks to new material integrated into the graphite of the racquet. This helps provide pristine sound and a more direct feel during ball contact.
Like previous generations of the Pure Drive, the racquet will keep its anti-twisting Elliptical Frame Shape which allows for ample power within the frame. Woofer technology is also integrated into the new 2018 frame. Babolat’s Woofer technology allows strings to interact more with the ball upon impact, giving more stringbed snap-back resulting in added spin. Babolat updates their FSI technology, with wider spacing to go with diamond shape grommet holes. This will allow more forgiveness and additional power on each hit.
To go with the technology updates, Babolat gave the 2018 Pure Drive an updated paint scheme with a light blue and white look. Overall, the new 2018 model is a fantastic update to the Pure Drive series, serving as a versatile power racquet with a comfortable, controllable feel.
