Babolat Launches New Jet Mach 3 Shoe

If you're feeling a need for speed, Babolat has the shoe for you.

Babolat has launched its new Jet Mach 3, an evolution of its best-seller flagship shoe built for game changing speed. Engineered specifically for tennis, this third edition model is enhanced with innovation and reflects Babolat’s commitment to meeting players’ ever-changing needs.

Developed to handle the sport’s essential and demanding lateral movements, the 2021 Jet Mach 3 stands out in the performance tennis shoe category.

It is ultra-light and abrasion resistant without sacrificing stability or support. The Jet Mac 3 benefits from a partnership between Babolat and Michelin.

The Babolat team sought Michelin’s expertise to redesign the shoe’s outsole to withstand players’ intense footwork, while preserving its signature lightness, maximum precision, and freedom of movement.

The Jet Mach 3 provides more durability and comfort for players looking for agility and lightness:

• Integration of new MATRYX EVO fabric upper offers improved comfort and agility
• Upgraded KPRS-X midsole with more heel shock protection
• Redesign of the Michelin outsole improves durability and traction with a stronger rocker on the front for faster transitions.

Babolat said the shoe's design was a delicate balance of enhancing durability without adding excess weight to the shoe.

“Each element was carefully considered,” Mateo Castro, Babolat Footwear Product Line Manager said. “For example, if you add material to increase durability, you must also reduce something to maintain the desired weight.

"At Babolat, we love this kind of challenge – to enrich a product without compromising performance. The result is the Jet Mach 3’s perfect balance between lightness, comfort, and durability.”

Using the Michelin Premium technology, the outsole of Jet Mach 3 is redesigned for more durability while maintaining the same lightweight. The areas that typically see the most abrasion are reinforced, whereas the low impact areas require less material. 

The Babolat Jet Mach 3 is designed for any tennis player who wants to control their footwork with precision and agility. The Babolat Jet Mach 3 retails for $130.00.
