As a French brand – and the tournament’s official racket partner – Babolat have a special connection with Roland-Garros, and so every year they produce unique new editions of their most popular rackets. This year’s Pure Aero Lite French Open features a stunning blue, orange and yellow frame, complementing its Aeromodular² and FSI Spin-enhanced design with bold colours that reflect the unforgiving nature of clay-court tennis.
The Pure Aero begins a new era of spin. An era of offensive and defensive domination, where every point is played on your terms. No opponent can withstand the relentless constriction of a skilled spin player – every time the ball crosses the net it becomes more and more difficult to return. Utilising the latest technology – including Aeromodular2 and FSI Spin – Babolat’s next generation racket upgrades and improves upon the ever-popular AeroPro, creating a formidable weapon for players that like to put action on the ball. The best just got better.
Aeromodular2 uses Woofer technology built directly into the mid-section of the racket’s frame, reducing drag by an average of 11% compared to previous generations of the AeroPro, and increasing ball speed by up to 5km/h.
FSI Spin technology frees up the movement of the racket’s strings to optimise lift on the ball, giving more opportunity to create spin. With a broader weave in the string bed and an oblong opening between the grommets at the top and bottom of the head, it’s an excellent innovation that allows Puncher players to maximise the strengths their style.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
