Babolat introduces the 2018 update to Babolat's Pure Drive Lite. Babolat’s new updated version of the Pure Drive Lite includes a newly improved vibration dampening system known as Cortex Pure Feel. The new Cortex Pure Feel technology offers improved vibration dampening thanks to new material integrated into the graphite of the racquet. Expect pristine sound and a more direct feel during ball contact.
Like previous generations of the Pure Drive Lite, 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 Lite a sharp, revamped paint scheme with a light blue and white look. Overall, the new 2018 model is a fantastic update to the Pure Drive racquet line, serving as a remarkably user-friendly frame that will benefit any player looking for the lighter version of the Pure Drive.
