The new Babolat Propulse BPM is for demanding players in search of high-tech and high performance that corresponds to their style of game. Packed with cutting-edge technology, it is an ultra-innovative shoe designed for durability and support.BPM is an acronym for Beats Per Minute. According to Babolat, the movements executed on court are all about rhythm and every player’s rhythm is different – a ‘beat’ with differing needs in terms of shoes. Owing to careful, ongoing observations of tennis players, Babolat has developed a unique concept with the BPM System, which is a genuine construction platform enabling players to boost their footwork to give their game a fresh new rhythm. It focuses on three key aspects of the shoe’s construction: the make-up of the forefoot section, the lateral support system and the exclusive Michelin sole.The Babolat Propulse BPM’s Ti-Fit (Tennis Inside) feature provides strategically positioned support (hell, instep, forefoot) for precise, sure footing and comfortable flexing and bending of the foot. It is assisted by Babolat’s renowned Footbelt technology that provides extra support around the instep to precisely meet players’ need for extra secure hold and guarantees a truly custom fit.In the forefoot, an asymmetric, high rebound EVA insert called Side2Side is adapted to the different foot needs for a more dynamic forefoot that provides a more explosive rebound after each step. Complementing this feature, a high performance material called Cell Shield that combines smaller, more densely concentrated cells on the inner part of the foot and larger, more spread out cells on the upper part to give players greater durability and comfort.For shock absorption and comfort, the Propulse BPM benefits from Babolat’s Kompressor System, Vibrakill and an Ortholite memory-shape insole.Its exclusive outsole has been developed in collaboration with Michelin researchers and directly inspired by road rally tyres is designed to give long-lasting, exceptional performance.
