Introducing the Babolat 2021 Pure Aero Rafa (100) Tennis Racquets! Babolat has updated the cosmetic for 2021! The Pure Aero continues to evolve thanks to Babolat’s bold technical partnerships. Babolat has added in Carbonplystabilizer to the Pure Aero which is powered by Chomarat. This new addition to the Pure Aero is a new generation of high-performance carbon fibers for more control and stability on every shot. The Pure Aero Rafa also features an even better feel thanks to a technological partnership with SMAC, an innovative French aerospace company. For optimal vibration absorption, Babolat intergrated SMACWRAP technology (thin viscoelastic rubber) placed at the 3 & 9 o’clock on the new Pure Aero, this ensures players with the best possible feel and comfort.
Rafa’s weapon of choice for the past 15 years, the Pure Aero is designed for players who seek the ultimate spin racquet. At 100 square inches, 11.2 ounces strung, and a 16×19 string pattern — the all-new Pure Aero Rafa will create massive spin with even more stability and precision.
- Item #: 101455-352
- Aeromodular3: 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.
- FSI Spin (Frame String Interaction): Wider spaces between cross strings 5 – 12 for more ball bite. Oblong grommets for greater string “snapback” and higher RPMs (spin!!).
- Carbon PLY Stabilizer: Material technology in the throat where a special carbon layer is woven into the graphite layup in order to increase torsional stability and control.
