The Babolat Drive Lite is updated with a new black and pink cosmetic, the racquet features Cortex Dampening System located in the two sides of the yoke. The innovative shape is designed to dampen the vibrations in order to bring to advanced players the best compromise between comfort and feel at ball impact.
Other than the addition of the Cortex filter (and a snazzy new paint scheme) Babolat has kept the specifications on this new version of the Drive Lite w/ Cortex the very similar to that of the 2013 Drive Z-Lite. The Babolat Drive Lite still has the feel of a "players" racquet with a solid, stable, comfortable feel, but with a broader appeal due to its lighter weight. This racquet is geared to the intermediate to advanced player possessing a longer, faster swing, who will appreciate the slightly lighter and more maneuverable feel versus the regular Pure Drive.

My game has vastly improved over the last year thanks to this frame. This is a very user-friendly stick, lightweight and really easy to swing. I am able to control a lot of my power and I've even added some topspin to my groundstrokes. This racquet is really comfortable as well; I notice minimal vibrations on my off-centered hits. I really recommend this fame to any up and coming player looking for a racquet that can blend power, control and spin.
