Allez! Babolat gears up for Roland Garros

2016 Roland Garros posterWe’ve seen what adidas has planned for 2016’s second Slam, and now Babolat unveils special edition equipment for their hometown tournament. This is the Babolat Pure Aero French Open. Babolat commemorates their partnership with Roland Garros with this French Open version of their most popular racquet.

Endorsed by Rafa Nadal, this version (basically just the same Pure Aero frame with new cosmetics) boasts a more aerodynamic beam along with a higher swing weight. The result is a racquet that trades a little bit of maneuverability for some ball crushing momentum and a welcomed boost in stability, plow-through and comfort.


And of course, you will need a bag to carry those very cool looking frames, so of course there are a few to pick from! We’ve got the very hot looking  Babolat Pure Aero French Open 12 Pack Bag:

There’s also a 6 Pack, which is identical but just in a smaller well as a backpack bag. Sweet colors.

If Babolat rolls out anymore custom French Open gear, we’ll let you know! Pas de problème!
