Babolat introduces the 2018 update to Babolat's Pure Drive 110. Babolat's new updated version of the Pure Drive 110 includes a newly improved vibration dampening system known as Cortex Pure Feel. The new Cortex Pure Feel technology offers improved vibration dampening thanks to new material integrated into the graphite of the racquet. Expect pristine sound and a more direct feel during ball contact.

Like previous generations of the Pure Drive Lite, the racquet will keep its anti-twisting Elliptical Frame Shape which allows for ample power within the frame. Woofer technology is also integrated into the new 2018 frame. Babolat's Woofer technology allows strings to interact more with the ball upon impact, giving more stringbed snap-back resulting in added spin. Babolat updates their FSI technology, with wider spacing to go with diamond shape grommet holes. This will allow more forgiveness and additional power on each hit.

To go with the technology updates, Babolat gave the 2018 Pure Drive 110 a smooth, revamped paint scheme with a light blue and white look. Overall, with the extended 27.6 inch extended length, the Pure Drive 110 serves as an ideal frame for players with a slower to modern swing looking for power with a nice combination of lightness and comfort.

For Optimal String Performance Babolat Recommends:

  • Durability: Babolat RPM Blast
  • Playability: Babolat Xcel

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

Cortex Pure Feel Technology

Babolat Cortex Pure Feel Technology

Babolat’s Cortex Pure Feel is powered by SMAC: better vibration dampening thanks to new material integrated in the graphite of the racquet that provides an incredible sound and more direct feel during the game.

FSI Technology

Babolat FSI Technology

Babolat created a higher sweetspot on the string bed for additional power and comfort in the hitting zone. Frame String Interaction technology is located in the hoop of the racquet, allowing the ball to stay on the stringbed 25% longer than traditional racquets.

GT Technology

Babolat GT Technology

Babolat’s GT technology was implemented to provide ideal stability at ball impact. With GT technology, the frame is strengthened which reduces the torque, allowing for great precision. The additional rigidity through GT technology provides ultimate control and additional power.

Elliptical Geometry

Babolat Elliptical Geometry

Babolat’s elliptical frame shape is designed specifically to eliminate any added weight, frame twisting or racquet bending.

Woofer System

Babolat Woofer System Technology

Babolat’s Woofer system is the first and most effective frame to string linking system. This technology allows for longer ball and string contact time, creating maximum comfort and greater control.

Evo Beam

Babolat Evo Beam

Unique frame thickness that gives the racquet less torque at ball contact, creating a livelier clean response

The weight of this racquet is the perfect match for my game. This is my 2nd one as I needed a backup and didn’t want to have 2 different racquets.

Now using for a couple months as primary racquet. I’m 71 and it delivers speed and maneuverability at the net. Plenty of power and love the lightness

A Little too Light!
This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I bought this racquet because I have had the Drive Max 110 for several years and really love that racquet and thought the Pure Drive 110 would be an upgrade from that. Turns out that this racquet is lighter than the Max Drive 110 and I find the frame on the Pure Drive 110 does not hold up as well against a power player. I find myself switching back to my Max Drive racquet when facing a power player because I feel that the frame absorbs the power better. I have been playing tennis for many years Including successful competition in USTA LEAGUES. I have used many different brands of racquets and I do find that Babolat does make a quality product. It is not that I find the Pure Drive 110 a bad racquet but my feeling so far is that I prefer the overall balance and feel of the Max Drive 110.

Fantastic racket
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I played competitive tennis 15-20 years ago, and have recently started back up. This racket was recommended to me by my tennis instructor. I’m glad I purchased it because I love it!! It’s lightweight and easy to use. Plus I love blue. Highly recommended for beginners and beyond!
