Babolat Side Cortex
Babolat’s original Cortex system separates the shaft of the racquet from the handle, and does an excellent job at dampening vibrations. The Babolat C-Drive series, however, uses an innovative new Side Cortex system to make the racquet even more comfortable for recreational players. The Cortex material is located in the shaft of the racquet on each side, just below the yoke (throat piece). By isolating the shock before it travels to the handle, Side Cortex frames will have an even more comfortable and forgiving feel than original Cortex racquets.
