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 Woofer technology allows strings to interact more with the ball upon impact, giving more string bed 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.
Babolat gave the 2018 Pure Drive Lite a sharp, revamped paint scheme with a light blue and white look. Overall, the new 2018 model is a remarkably user-friendly frame that will benefit any player looking for the lighter version of the Pure Drive.
