Babolat re-worked their Pure Drive and Pure Aero ranges in 2015 so that they now run exactly in parallel - Lite at 270g, Team at 285g, Drive at 300g and Tour at 315g.
Therefore this Pure Drive Team now slots in slightly above the older Lite which was 275g (but has now dropped to 270) and below the Drive, which, at 300g is just too heavy for some ladies and teens. Now there is a Pure Drive model for everyone!
Based on data from 2012-2013 Babolat Play recordings, it was identified that the impact zone is higher than the racquet's traditional centre. All Babolat Pure Drive frames were re-designed in 2015 to reflect the true impact zone with a redefined sweetspot.
Frame String Interaction (FSI) Technology
FSI works with the new tighter stringing pattern in the sweetspot and optimized Woofer System to allow for better control and feel of the ball. Balls are consistently hit deep in the court and keeps your opponents behind the baseline.
