Babolat’s French Open Branded Gear For 2017
Babolat has a very high profile among both pros and recreational players, and like last year for the French (as well as for Wimbledon), Babolat has trotted out some vibrant custom racquet looks for the 2017 edition of the year’s second Slam.
Babolat aficionados will want to add the fresh new cosmetic to their bags – or get a whole new bag! No new frames- just a new look. For now, TW/Europe is your source for these. Update: for tennis fans Down Under, try Tennis Only.
Babolat Pure Aero French Open Racket
This special French Open edition of the Pure Aero boasts the colors of Roland Garros! It has the exact same specifications and playing characteristics of the standard cosmetic version. Boasting a higher swing weight than the old AeroPro Drive, this racket trades a little bit of maneuverability for some ball crushing momentum and a welcomed boost in stability, plow-through and comfort. Find it: TW/Europe.
Babolat Pure Aero French Open Lite Racket
The Pure Aero Lite is a great option for the player who wants the exceptional playability of the standard Pure Aero but in a lighter, more user-friendly package. Beginner and intermediate players will appreciate this racket’s quick handling and precise delivery. Find it: TW/Europe.
Babolat Pure Aero French Open Junior Racket
Introducing the perfect weapon for junior competitors ages 11+. With its French Open colors, this version of the Pure Aero should make you think of Rafael Nadal. With its graphite construction, this racket feels solid and powerful. The open string pattern is ideal for generating spin. This is the perfect option for rising juniors who want to hit with power, spin and accuracy. TW/Europe.
That’s it for the frames- let’s look at Babolat’s Roland Garros gear bags.
Babolat Pure Aero French Open 12 Pack Bag
With colors to compliment the clay court major at Roland Garros, this bag has been updated and features two compartments which have Isothermal Protection and can hold up to 5 rackets each while the middle compartment is just as large and has room for 5 racquets as well or can carry other gear. There are exterior pockets with internal organizational features for your smaller items and accessories as well as a vented pocket ideal for carrying shoes or dirty gear. Traveling with this bag will be comfortable when utilizing the attached, padded backpack straps and the quick grab handles . TW/Europe. (There is also a 6 Pack model here.)
Babolat Club French Open 3 Pack
The Club French Open 3 Pack is ideal for recreational players. With one main compartment there is room to carry three rackets and gear. There is an exterior pocket for your smaller items and a convenient shoulder strap makes for easy carrying. This is the one I’d own- who has 12 frames unless they’re playing in the pros, anyway? Some of those bigger bags can house a family of four, and I swear I sometimes think the smaller pros like Cibulkova are going to fall backwards. TW/Europe.
Babolat Club French Open Backpack
The French Open Club Backpack is the perfect option for the player on the go. Just the right size to hold exactly what you need, there is a racket compartment which will hold two rackets and a main compartment for everything else. There is a zippered accessory pocket on the front and the padded back and adjustable backpack straps assure that you will be traveling in comfort and style. TW/Europe.
Babolat Pure French Open Backpack

There are accessory pockets on either side of the backpack to keep your smaller items easy to get to, and the bottom of this bag features a vented pocket ideal for shoes or dirty gear. With plush, durable backpack straps and a cool modern look, you’ll be traveling comfortably as well as in style! TW/Europe.
