If you were already a paid up convert to the Babolat Drive Lite society then you can rest assured that you’ll find a lot to love about its new 2019 iteration. All the original features are kept in place just where you like them while the new updated moody colourway sets the tone for more to come.
This racket is still as user friendly as ever and those who prefer a lighter stick such as improving club and junior players will still be able to hit steadily and confidently through the ball with ease, while the more experienced club player will still find the frame fun, forgiving and a joy to hit with.
The updated Babolat Cortex system as ever delivers the super dampening you’d expect throughout the fame whilst the diamond grommet holes and the slightly wider open string pattern of 16/19 blesses the Z LITE with plenty of eager power pop and spin.
Overall the 2019 Babolat Drive Lite ticks all the boxes, lighter for better handling thanks to its low weight, the LITE ensures that players enjoy and hit all the shots and strokes you enjoy.

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.
