Babolat is bringing comfort, control and high-performance consistency to the court.

The French brand launched its new XALT string—a multifilament string combining comfort, control, and responsiveness—today. XALT string is built to help you bring bite to to the ball without shocking your arm in the process.

The inventor of the first natural gut tennis string in history, Babolat designed XALT to deliver solutions for two main types of players: 

*Intermediate players in search of more control to improve the confidence of their shots without compromising comfort. 

*Advanced players with faster swings who want a more comfortable string yet firm enough to provide greater responsiveness.

Developed and manufactured in Lyon, France, the new XALT string is the latest addition to the Babolat range.

Its composition
which combines soft materials, filaments, and a polyamide matrixoptimizes the absorption of vibrations and provides for outstanding tension maintenance for one-of-a-kind comfort.

In addition, through its innovative, patented production process incorporating glass microbeads, this string provides optimal consistency at impact. The result provides intermediate players greater control and advanced players more responsiveness, all the while keeping the shock to their arms to a minimum.

As part of Babolat's commitment to protect the environment, its strings are sold in fully recyclable packaging. In addition, the brand's multifilament strings are made using a patented manufacturing process with no solvents
much better for the environment.
