Earlier in 2021, Babolat released the Pure Aero Rafa which came with an updated cosmetic inspired by 20-time major winner Rafael Nadal. This racket also came alongside a collection of tennis equipment that sported the bold new design. Throughout 2021, the Pure Aero Rafa collection by Babolat has proven to be extremely popular in the consumer market as the Rafael Nadal brand continues to capture the imagination of amateur tennis players.
Nadal introduced an explosive, exciting style of play to the men’s game way back in 2004 when he first burst onto the scene. Since then, Babolat has helped grow Nadal’s iconic game into an international brand. Rafael Nadal has become more than just a tennis player; he’s become a philosophy. To be ‘Nadal-like’ on a tennis court is to be full of passion, patience, power and determination. In the Pure Aero Rafa collection, Babolat have strived to capture those ideals and represent them in a series of tennis products. If you enjoy continuity in your sports equipment, you can complete the entire Aero Rafa set and get fully co-ordinated.
The Pure Aero was introduced back in 2004 as it was developed for a young Rafael Nadal. Over the years the Pure Aero has become an iconic racket that is loved by players worldwide, both on the professional tours and at local club. The Pure Aero Rafa is the latest in a long line of Pure Aero’s that Babolat have been producing in partnership with Nadal for the last 15 years. Nadal had input in the design of the racket as well as the specs, he loves the ‘happy colours’ that are gracefully woven into the cosmetic of the racket.
‘It’s important to be happy on court. So, I like powerful, strong colours’
The specs of the racket are tailored for maximising spin and power. With its 300g weight and 100 square inch head, it’s the perfect racket for club players looking to get the most out of their topspin shots.
The all new yellow and purple design is carried over to the new Pure Aero Rafa bag collection. Coming in a 12-racket version and a 6-racket version, this new take on a classic tennis bag is sure to make you stand out on court! The bags have been tastefully designed to accentuate the bold pops of colour used in the Aero Rafa cosmetic.
Babolat have produced a unique line of backpacks lately that have a foldable isothermal compartment able to store up to three rackets. The Babolat Pure Aero Rafa Backpack includes this new compartment feature and of course, the new Aero Rafa design. This is a versatile piece of luggage that’s perfect for sneaking in a hit after work/school.
Complete the Aero Rafa set with this finishing touch, the new Vamos Vibration Dampener that’s based on the Aero Rafa collection. The colours match entirely with the Pure Aero Rafa racket and further reduce any harsh vibrations you may experience when hitting. A perfect match with the Aero Rafa.
