An update to the heaviest version of the Pure Aero series is now available. It is a powerful and spin-friendly but demanding racquet - ideal for strong competitors and expert players (intermediate to advanced). Babolat has kept much of the previous version's specs intact while re-engineering it to increase softness of feel upon ball impact.
This racquets extra weight and head-light balance coupled with the Aeromodular (aerodynamic) design makes for a racquet that provides plenty of spin potential while enhancing stability and power. Generating power and spin should not be a problem for players with enough strength and proper technique. If there has been one aspect of the past versions of this racquet that some players did not love, it would be its fairly stiff flex. Babolat has addressed this by moving their Cortex Pure Feel technology to the head of the racquet at 3 and 9 o'clock. This results in a noticeably softer feel at impact as well as a touch more control. A change that most players will welcome. Babolat's FSI Spin technology is also present in the Pure Aero Tour 2019 which brings wider spacing between the strings in the sweetspot provide extra bite into the ball and oblong grommets at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions create more string snapback to further enhance spin potential.
With a little more feel and precision, the 2019 update is sure to appeal to players who look for a racquet that enhances stability on heavy swings, generates powerful returns and also provides plenty of access to spin. This is a racquet to dominate with.

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.
