With a hot new paint job for Roland Garros, Babolat’s AeroPro Drive GT French Open 2012 is the same high performance racquet you know and love. The aerodynamic frame allows for a faster swing speed which translates to more power and spin on every shot. Rounded out with a stronger frame, torque is reduced and shot precision is increased so you can put away opponents with devastating accuracy.
"Enjoy the pure feel" - The cortex system is a revolutionary active technology between the throat and the handle of the racquet. With this new technology, the two parts of the racquet are linked by an interface in CDS (Cortex Damping System) material. This technology allows to filter the different vibratory modes. It eliminates unnecessary vibrations and enhances the feel of the ball.
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.
