Babolat's DNA has always been to analyze changes in the game and to provide the best solutions to tennis players' needs, bucking trends and creating new ones. In the 90s, tennis was dominated by control-oriented racquets with small heads and square frames, but Babolat created the Pure Drive in 1994. A tennis racquet with a 645cm² head size and an elliptical frame to generate power and change the rules of the game. Four years later, Carlos Moya won his 1st Grand Slam with the now iconic Pure Drive: the first of many Pure Drive victories at the professional and amateur level.

Today, the Pure Drive is celebrating its 30th anniversary. 30 years of success, 30 years of power, 30 years of blue. To celebrate this iconic tennis racquet, Babolat has revisited one of the key elements of the Pure Drive. The blue color has been the hallmark of power, versatility, and modernity for 30 years. We've condensed every blue since the first edition in 1994, using an innovative painting process to create a unique and randomized blue design on every racquet. The Pure Drive 30th Anniversary is designed for players looking for a powerful, versatile, and maneuverable tennis racquet. This all-round tennis racquet will give you a unique feeling with every winning shot and every victory, just as it has done for the last 30 years.

Pro players from the BABOLAT team can play with a customized model or one that differs from the equipment shown.

Babolat adds another chapter to the game's most iconic modern player's racquet. As with previous versions of the Pure Drive, this update keeps the same easy learning curve and explosive spec profile that has attracted generations of players. Updated with Babolat's new HTR System, the Pure Drive's graphite layup has been reengineered for higher torsional rigidity, resulting in more efficient energy transfer to the ball. To help with vibration dampening, Babolat has devoted more space in the shaft to SWX Pure Feel, a thin and extremely flexible viscoelastic rubber that sits between the racquet's carbon layers. Additional features include FSI Power Technology, which optimizes the grommet system and string spacing for higher levels of power and spin.

On court, this racquet's explosive acceleration and spin-friendly targeting make it a dangerous weapon from the baseline. It also packs impressive all-court mobility, making it great for cranking winners on the run or charging into the front court and finishing points at net.
