Greatness continues for Babolat’s Pure Aero line: the 2023 Pure Aero is here for a whole new generation of players on and off the tour.

Babolat adds strategically-placed NF²-Tech flax inserts at the 3 o’clock, 9 o’clock, and handle positions for optimal shock absorption on this powerful frame. These natural flax fibers are carefully integrated into the frame to create the most feel and sensation yet. An added bonus: extra sound quality for that satisfying pop and an exceptional playing experience.

The 2023 Pure Aero also carries all the hallmarks of its predecessors, which include SWX Pure Feel SMACWRAP technology powered by the French aerospace company SMAC; an aerodynamic frame that increases spin and optimizes racquet head speed; an open string pattern for added bite on the ball; and Carbonplystabilizer power by Chomarat.

Endorsed by Rafa and next-generation players Felix Auger-Aliassime, Carlos Alcaraz, Holger Rune, and Leylah Fernandez, the 2023 Pure Aero dominates the game.

For Optimal String Performance Babolat Recommends:

  • Durability: Babolat RPM Blast
  • Playability: Babolat Xcel
  • Hybrid: Babolat RPM Blast 17G, Xcel 16G

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

Almost there for me: everything I wanted except one thing.
This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I'd been playing with an 18x20 "player's racquet" for over a decade when I decided I needed to move to a more contemporary racquet to take the next step in my game as I get older, play in more leagues and tournaments, etc. After weeks of demoing over a dozen racquets, this was almost the one that I went with, going so far as to demo it a few times. I really wanted to like it as it actually gave me the biggest boost in serve speed Its biggest problem was the feel; to me, it had a "jangliness" or "hollowness" in every stroke that wasn't for me. It contributed to a feeling of unpredictability, especially on volleys, even though the results were always what I wanted. A very odd thing: I was often surprised by my own shots, which is maybe a good thing, but just didn't inspire confidence. All that said, it did great things: big spin at the baseline, big power and accuracy on the serve, and despite feeling a bit unwieldy (high twist weight?), more touch than expected at the net.

Best Aero Racquet to Date!
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I am a long time Pure Aero fan, however, was nervous about this slightly different string pattern. However, once I was able to demo the racquet I loved it immediately. For me personally, it almost feels lighter even though it is the exact same weight as my previous Aero. The striking feels lighter in the volleys, lighter/faster in the groundstrokes, etc. I am a fan after just two weeks!

Babolat Pure Aero 2023
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I found this racket to be very controllable in ground strokes and having a great sweet spot with the condensed string pattern on this frame. Top spinners will love this racket! Great control with spin! Provides good power for serves. No negatives here. Been playing with this racket for 6 months. Also have Pro Drives and older Aeros. This one is my favorite. 4.0/4.5 player.

Great racquet
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I like the feel of this racquet and easy maneuverability. Powerful, yet offers good control. Stiff enough yet seems arm friendly.
