Continually anticipating player needs, Babolat reveals the next generation of control rackets with the new Pure Strike. Babolat, the pure player of racket sports, developed a new sharp control solution that combines dynamic control with intact feel and unbeatable responsiveness for offensive performance players who want to hit hard with full confidence.
By studying tennis, Babolat recognizes the need to launch a new racket that responds to the evolution of the game. From the classic control of the 1980s defined by the switch from wood to graphite rackets, to the modern control of the 2000s achieved through slightly redesigned square beam frames bringing more dynamism and stability, a new shift is required to enter the 2020 era. With Sharp Control comes the notion of pure feel to meet the current demands of the game. “Today’s avid competitors want to take big swings with precision, so ball feel at impact is key,” explains Alex Israel, Babolat tennis category manager. “Players need to trust that their racket will provide the necessary feel, stability and responsiveness to meet their expectations–to be the perfect extension of their arm.”
The new Pure Strike features more control and enhanced playability thanks to increased feel and responsiveness. Two major technologies achieve sharp control: C2 PURE FEEL and CONTROL FRAME TECHNOLOGY. NEW C2 PURE FEEL powered by SMAC is the latest generation of the Pure Feel technology, a cutting-edge vibration filtration lay-up system that brings exceptional feel on every shot. CONTROL FRAME TECHNOLOGY combines the stability of a square beam frame with the dynamism of a regular elliptic structure.
The new Pure Strike preserves the strong identity of the previous generation while bringing a completely new vision via strong graphic elements. Blending urban and contemporary graphics, the design mixes the modern culture of “tagging” while remaining structured. The result is both restrained and vivid. With the Pure Strike racket, the white color evokes cleanliness with a touch of aggression marked by the repetition of the words “Pure Strike,” the red font, and the striking red bumper. The design highlights the precision factor with crosshair graphics and the shape of the bumpers carved to make a sight line
