The fifth generation of the now famous Babolat AeroPro Drive features updated Cortex Active Technology for better sensation. Rafael Nadal's racquet of choice has become a truly lethal weapon, renowned for its power and topspin.
Cortex Active Technology: Every time a racquet hits a ball, it generates thousands of vibrations, hundreds of which cause discomfort, while others help players get a better feel for the ball. Since each player has different needs, Babolat has designed a system with three new types of dampeners to enable all types of players to find just the right amount and kinds of sensations to suit their specific style and preferences.
Cortex Expert: Pure sensations. A CDS (Cortex Dampening System) interface transmits useful information to the player and the new handle design brings that information closer to the player's hand for perfect control on every hit.
Woofer System: The Woofer system is the first technology to enable the frame and strings to interact each and every time a players hits a ball. Woofer provides 25% longer ball-string contact time for greater precision and more sensations.
Aero Modular: New modular frame concept, creates maximum penetration of the racquet through the air and increases the hitting power. Perfect control for directional hitting.
GT Technology: GT innovative technology combines crossed layers of graphite and thin threads of tungsten integrated into the racquet's lay up. Tungsten is a high-tech fiber used in the aerospace industry, highly valued for its toughness and tensile strength properties. Graphite tungsten innovative technology provides maximum torsional stability on the headsize for enhanced control, and energy restoration in the yoke for additional power.
