The Pure Drive owes its success in part to its versatility – equally suited for professional and recreational players. Known for power, maneuverability, and accessibility, we put this racket to the test, and it is no surprise this mythical racket has been a world best seller over the last 20 years. Its trademark blue color and ever-evolving design have set the standard of excellence – often imitated, never matched!
We've had a chance to play test this new Pure Drive, read our thoughts!
To respond to changes in the game, the Pure Drive is regularly reinvented while respecting its fundamental characteristics. Babolat teams worked on explosiveness to complement its distinctive power.By adding more stability at impact, the Pure Drive provides a higher energy returnespecially on off-center shots.The resulting increased ball speedallows players tohitwinners inany situation.
The Pure Drive 2021 is enhanced with two new major technologies that improve performance. The HTR (High Torsional Rigidity) system helps improve torsional stability for more efficient baseline strokes and optimized power on returns. This resistance to twisting allows for a greater tolerance with off-center shots. Coupled with the racquet’s inherent power, the HTR in the new Pure Drive offers an energy return as explosive and powerful as ever. • The new SWX(SmacWrap eXtended)PureFeel of thePure Drive filters vibrations, keeping only those that give players the best feeling. With this technology, the Pure Drive offers unparalleled playing sensations on each shot.
