Babolat introduces a new edition to the Pure Aero family, focusing on control and precision. Formerly known as the Pure Aero VS, the Pure Aero 98 provides powerful accuracy for players who generate significant power. In comparison to the standard Pure Aero, this racket features a more compact head size, denser string pattern, and a thinner, more flexible beam. These modifications result in enhanced control, particularly beneficial for aggressive shots and precise targeting. Nevertheless, the racket still delivers ample power to keep opponents in check. In 2023, Babolat incorporates NF² Technology, utilizing flax inserts at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions in the head to soften ball impact. Additionally, Babolat updates its FSI Spin technology with slightly tighter string spacing, offering improved control and confidence when maximizing stroke speed to generate power and spin. With these notable enhancements to responsiveness, the Pure Aero 98 delivers the spin and power expected from a modern player's racket, while maintaining the necessary control and feel to effectively engage with targets on the court.
Players who are using Pure Aero 98 2023: Felix Auger Aliassime, Holger Rune and Wimbledon Champion 2023 Carlos Alcaraz.
