New for 2016, the Babolat Drive 105 French Open edition has been updated with a sleek new blue, white and red clay graphic inspired by Roland Garros. The racquet features Cortex Dampening System located in the two sides of the yoke. The Babolat Drive has an innovative shape which is designed to dampen the vibrations in order to bring to advanced players the best compromise between comfort and feel at ball impact. This powerful racquet is great for players looking for maximum feel to go along with optimal comfort.
Other than the addition of the Cortex filter (and a snazzy new Roland Garros inspired paint scheme) Babolat has kept the specifications on this new version of the Drive 105 French Open very similar to that of the Drive 105. The Babolat Drive 105 is geared to the intermediate to advanced player possessing a longer, faster swing, who will appreciate great playability to go along with maximum feel and optimal comfort. Note: This racquet is pre-strung with Babolat Synthetic Gut 16g at Babolat's recommended tension of 59 lbs.
