Babolat Pure Drive Lite Tennis Racket (2018)
Light-weight, model from Babolat's powerful Pure Drive range
Great racket for younger players looking to move from junior to a senior frame.
The Pure Drive Lite is the most manoeuvrable racket in the Babolat range. It is light-weight and head-light, a combination which allows players to swing easily. It is not lacking in power either with FSI Power Technology, providing one of the liveliest and powerful string-beds on a racket.
Built for the modern game and the modern player. The Pure Drive range equips players with a blend of power and spin that has stood the test of time. Going for over 20 years, the Pure Drive’s feel and response has been relished by multiple generations of tennis players – ranging from those just getting started, to tour professionals including Fabio Fognini and Garbine Muguruza.
The 2018 model retains the DNA of the legendary frame and even with a new look and design, can continue to be called the ‘blue one’. The new Pure Drive includes Babolat's FSI Power Technology resulting in even more power and spin in comparison to previous generations, thanks to the wide string spacing and diamond shaped grommet holes. Babolat's new Cortex Pure Feelsystem has been updated with viscoelastic rubber used in the space industry by SMAC, providing more comfort, more dampening and more feel.
