Pure Aero 2021?

Will there be a new model? I see the Pure Drive has a new 2021 model but the Pure Aero is still not updated yet.
 
If they follow the Pure Drive release timeline, there should be reviews coming out August/September 2021 for Pure Aero 2022 release. The 2021 Pure Drive has been available to purchase for a couple months already.

the 2021 catalog is out on issuu, but no hint of the 2022 Aero paint job (in the past French Open editions were pictured now), but the Pure Aero Rafa is in there - which we've all seen.

You never know, but Babolat usually runs in 3 year cycles. Since the latest Aero was 2019, I'm betting it'll be 2022 when we get a new one.

Right.
That's what I would expect as well.

Pure Drive - 2009, 2012, 2015, 2018, 2021, etc.
Aero Pro Drive - 2007, 2010, 2013 (last iteration) ---> Pure Aero - 2016, 2019, 2022?, etc.
Pure Strike 2013?/2014, 2017, 2020, 2023? etc.

Basically, this pattern allows Babolat to devote 1 year to producing/marketing one frame (of their 3 primary lines) each year.

Ugh, I heard through the grapevine that all they're doing is releasing the Rafa paint job this year.

Just in case you guys haven't see it, towards the end of this thread there is a pic of Rafa with a new paintjob (not the sunshine).
