From the Babolat Aeropro Drive to the Pure Aero

All of us who are old enough remember the birth of the Babolat Aeropro Drive tennis racket as a great step in tennis after the resounding success of the Babolat Pure Drive model. This model borrowed the maneuverability and power of the Pure Drive, but added a frame design that enhanced spin creation.

The history of this model began in 2003 due to the need to create a racket for a young Rafa Nadal who promised to be an outstanding player. Equipped with an aerodynamic section that increases the speed of the racket head providing more spin speed to the ball, it turned out to be perfect for the intensity of spin shots that Rafa needed to conquer the world of tennis. . The rest is already written history.

During Rafa Nadal's career, the Aero has undergone technological evolutions and two important changes in the specialization of the racket in order to overcome two great challenges, one called Roger Federer and the other Novak Djokovic. In both changes, I chose to increase the weight on the top of the head slightly in order to increase the "hammer" effect of the racket.

Today the Pure Aero collects the same technologies and evolutions that Rafa enjoys and the difference between the Pure Aero tennis racket that you find in our store and the one used by Rafa Nadal in his matches is minimal.

Within the Pure Aero line you will find different variants depending on the weight of the racket:

Pure Aero Super Lite, this version is the lightest and is often used by players who, due to their height, require a racket with an adult length, but a junior weight.

Pure Aero Lite , is the natural version for players who leave the junior model and make their transition to the adult model.

Pure Aero Team , designed for mid-level players who advance in their game and need a more forceful racket.

Pure Aero 300 grams, it is the model most used by players due to its balance in performance.

Pure Aero VS< /a>, increases its weight to 305 grams, reduces the size of its head and has a more classic profile, currently it has gained more relevance since it is the racket chosen by Carlos Alcaraz to grow as a top tennis player.

Pure Aero Tour, the heaviest model in the line at 315 grams and designed for larger players who need more weight on your racket.

There is also a Pure Aero + version that consists of the 300-gram model, but elongated, which used to be It was called “long body”. This model is usually used by players who, due to its characteristics, require a racket that offers them more leverage due to their style of play or their height.
