Babolat Pure Aero Tennis Rackets

The PURE AERO range of rackets come with an aerodynamic beam and are ideal for players looking to add vicious spin and power to their game. The standard Pure Aero is a classic 300g in weight with 100 sq in head. This makes it ideal for intermediate and advanced players alike. The frame is surprisingly thick considering it is a player's frame. As it is aimed squarely at players who like to hit loads of top spin, this racket almost helps you to hit topspin with its weighting and aerodynamic shape.

If you are a real pro player, you will like the Pure Aero 98 (as endorsed by Carlos Alcaraz) with its tour 305g weight and its thinner beam, smaller head size and less stiffness preferred by better players. For those with a double handed backhand, there is even a +plus version, which is half an inch longer with a longer grip handle. The Pure Aero was specifically designed with input from Rafa to give it that aerodynamic shape which helps to go through the air really quickly for those massive forehands and powerful backhand passing shots.

History of the Babolat Pure Aero

When we understood how strong he would be, we decided to build a new racquet completely adapted to his game. A racket that focuses on power and spin”: Eric Babolat, CEO of Babolat.

The history of the Pure Aero (originally known as the AeroPro Drive) is inextricably linked with that of Rafael Nadal, one of sport's greatest champions. Representing the unique relationship between Babolat and Rafa, the original AeroPro Drive was developed to provide Rafa with a racket that focused on power and spin. With its famous aerodynamic section, the AeroPro Drive was designed to be the 'Nadal racket' and has evolved to become an iconic part of the game.

Now also used by professionals including Jo-Wilfred Tsonga, Johanna Konta, Caroline Wozniacki, Genie Bouchard and Jack Sock, the Pure Aero has evolved to become one of the most popular tennis ranges around the world.

2005-2006 - Specifically designed for Rafa, the original AeroPro Drive helped Rafa win his first two titles at Roland Garros.

2007-2009 - The second generation of the AeroPro Drive is one of the most famous in tennis history, and was used by Rafa during his titanic battle against Roger Federer at Wimbledon in 2008.

2010-2012 - Rafa completed his career Golden Slam at the 2010 US Open with generation 3 of the AeroPro Drive.

2013-2015 - Cementing his legacy as the greatest men's singles clay court champion, generation 4 of the AeroPro Drive was on show as Rafa won a record 9th French Open in 2014.

2015-2018 - The first major re-design of the series, Rafa has used the Pure Aero since 2015 and returned to World No.1 at the end of 2017, 9 years after his first No.1 ranking. To celebrate Rafa's extraordinary success at Roland Garros, a limited edition 'Decima' racket was created after his 10th victory and used as he won his 11th.
