Just in time for the French Open, the lighter version of the popular Pure Aero 2019 gets a fresh paint job to celebrate another year at the hallowed courts of Roland-Garros.
The update to the lightest member of the Pure Aero family (Pure Aero Lite 2019) continues to be a great choice for beginner and intermediate players that are looking for a fast swinging racquet with loads of access to spin.
For the updated Pure Aero Lite, Babolat smartly keeps the weight, balance, head size and string pattern unchanged from the pervious version. One change they do make is moving the Cortex Pure Feel dampening material to the head of the racquet at 3 and 9 o'clock. This acts to make the racquet slightly softer feeling at contact, while enhancing the racquet's feel as well as providing a little extra control. Back for this latest version of the Pure Aero Lite is FSI Spin technology which means wider spacing between the strings in the sweetspot to provide extra bite into the ball. Oblong grommets at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions create more string snapback to contribute even more to this racquet's spin potential. The Aeromodular design makes for a racquet that swings through the air with ease. Generating power and spin should not be a problem for players of almost any skill level.
A great update to an already great lightweight, spin-friendly racquet will only add to this frames appeal.

Carbon Ply Stabilizer:
Superior stability for increased precision thanks to a new generation of high-performance carbon fibers developed by Chomarat added in the core of the racquet.
The first and most effective frame-string link system: a longer ball-string contact time for greater control and a sensation of comfort.
Aerodynamic frame shape that allows the racquet to penetrate the air more easily for optimal power and spin.
Cortex Pure Feel:
Better vibration damping thanks to new material powered by SMAC integrated in the graphite at 3 and 9 o'clock that provides an exceptional feel.
Woofer technology built directly into the mid-section of the new frame strategically shaped to reduce wind drag and boost swing speed, offering an average of 11% less drag. With the introduction of the 2019 Pure Aero Line, Babolat opens the bumper and removes the long side/short side string installation while keeping deeper string channels for protection against premature string breakage.
A broader weave in the string bed and an oblong opening between the grommets at the top and the bottom of the head. Wider spaces between cross strings 5-12 for more ball bite and higher RPMs.
Dimensional Weight: 1.0 kg
Dimensional weight, also known as volumetric weight, is an estimated weight that is calculated from the length, width, height and actual weight of a package. It also takes into consideration oversize/fuel surcharges. It is not representative of the actual weight of a package. We use this estimated weight as the basis to our shipping rate calculations.
