Babolat Tennis Racket Features Chomarat C-PLY Reinforcement

Chomarat's C-PLY Hexagonal multiaxial carbon fabric is being used in specialist racket sports goods manufacturer Babolat's new Pure Aero tennis racket.

“We are very proud to be chosen by Babolat," says Pascal Joubert des Ouches, Sports Equipment Market Director at Chomarat. "Our new carbon reinforcement, added to the heart of the racket, enables better control and makes each shot more precise and stable.”

The addition of C-PLY multiaxial carbon reinforcement to the core of the Pure Aero has increased the racket’s stability while enhancing its performance. One characteristic of the reinforcement is its stitching thread.

“This unique thread brings out the colour of the resin pigments because it has been designed to remain visible after its impregnation," Pascal Joubert des Ouches notes. "It also contributes to extra reinforcement and an exceptional design.”
