Released to celebrate Rafa’s pure unprecedented dominance in Paris, Babolat have once again launched a Special Edition Pure Aero which features a distinctive Parisienne infused colourway to match the blood, sweat and tears it took to win those astonishing 11 titles.
The new Pure Aero epitomises the past, present and the future of the best player ever to step onto a clay court, Rafael Nadal.
Featuring the same stunning aerodynamic frame that allows the racket head to move at amazing speed, this frame enhances velocity and increases the speed at which you can take a ball on the rise.
This world-renowned frame is a dream to handle if you like to hit hard and flat, but it is only when you start to ramp up the spin that the APD really takes flight. Players who love to push deep into the court will light up on the court with the Pure Aero in hand.
This time around Babolat have moved the CORTEX dampening towards the 3 & 9 o’clock positions which has resulted in a tad softer feel for some, however this frame very much lives up to its firm and lively reputation that fans will recognise at once.
All in all, this solid intermediate frame looks like keeping its loyal fan-base happy for a good while yet, and hey, while Rafa is still cleaning up at RG then you should too.

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.
