Babolat updates the colorway for 2021! Introducing the latest racquet endorsed by Rafael Nadal, the updated colorway Pure Aero. Babolat has redesigned and re-engineered the Pure Aero back in 2019, featuring more control plus a better feel -- remaining the gold standard frame for players who use spin as their weapon of choice to dominate the court. This edition comes with a new striking colorway cosmetic as seen on court with Rafael Nadal.

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 16x19 string pattern -- the all-new Pure Aero Rafa will create massive spin with even more stability and precision.

For Optimal String Performance Babolat Recommends:
  • Durability: Babolat RPM Blast
  • Playability: Babolat Xcel
  • Hybrid: Babolat RPM Blast 17 - Xcel 16

If selecting tension "Below Range", please note at checkout within the comments field your desired tension value.

High Quality Racquet
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I had not purchased a racquet in years and had done research on Babolat racquets. I have a great experience to date with this rafa racquet. It provides significant control and improves spin. I was able to land first serves much more efficiently and overall handling was solid. Highly recommend.

Love the feel. Love the bold colors. It's lightweight so I can get in position & sturdy when I hit the ball. Makes great contact, I hit the sweet spot with Pure Aero. Very happy customer.
