Babolat Pure Drive 30th Anniversary 300g (2024)


Babolat's DNA has always been to analyze changes in the game and to provide the best solutions to tennis players' needs, bucking trends and creating new ones. In the 90s, tennis was dominated by control-oriented racquets with small heads and square frames, but Babolat created the Pure Drive in 1994. A tennis racquet with a 645cm² head size and an elliptical frame to generate power and change the rules of the game. Four years later, Carlos Moya won his 1st Grand Slam with the now iconic Pure Drive: the first of many Pure Drive victories at the professional and amateur level.

Today, the Pure Drive is celebrating its 30th anniversary. 30 years of success, 30 years of power, 30 years of blue. To celebrate this iconic tennis racquet, Babolat has revisited one of the key elements of the Pure Drive. The blue color has been the hallmark of power, versatility, and modernity for 30 years. We've condensed every blue since the first edition in 1994, using an innovative painting process to create a unique and randomized blue design on every racquet. The Pure Drive 30th Anniversary is designed for players looking for a powerful, versatile, and maneuverable tennis racquet. This all-round tennis racquet will give you a unique feeling with every winning shot and every victory, just as it has done for the last 30 years.

• HTR SYSTEM: The High Torsional Rigidity (HTR) system is a new lay-up composition in the hoop of the racquet for increased rigidity to produce explosive winners at will.

• SWX PURE FEEL: New technology featuring extended wrapping of SMAC technology, the cutting-edge vibration filtration system integrated in the lay-up composition, provides an unrivaled feel at ball impact and a unique sound on every shot.

• FSI POWER TECHNOLOGY: Advanced frame-string interaction system with an open 16X19 string pattern and optimized diamond grommets for a larger sweet spot and maximum power for all players.

• ELLIPTIC FRAME: Elliptical frame structure with optimal resistance and overall rigidity for phenomenal power.
