Though it isn’t the most breathable in the Babolat line, it’s made with a Michelin rubber that allows fast-playing movers to go beyond the limit of their game. A caveat though, sizing up might be necessary for those who’ll find it to be narrow and small.

Who is it for? The Babolat Jet Mach II All Court is created for players with an unstoppable momentum on cross surfaces.

What's new?

  • Babolat re-developed the upper to make it more flexible and supportive by supplying it with the Matryx 2.0 system and reinforcing it with Stability Arch straps.
  • Mach II’s single-piece structure combines the functions of a shank and external heel counter into one. The dual-purpose engineering not only locks the foot in place but slashes down a lot of weight from the shoe.
  • Weighing roughly 10 grams less than its predecessor, the Mach II is one of the lightest in the tennis world.

The industrial expertise and innovative approach of Michelin give this all-court shoe the right amount of durability. Its Michelin-made sole is built with premium-grade DIN 20 rubber that’s designed to resist abrasion. The groove patterns are assembled to provide reliable traction and security on clay and hard courts.

Cushioning. Babolat reformatted the impact absorption mechanism on this second version. The heel is fortified with the KPRS-X, an improved version of the Kompressor System found in the Mach I. The thermoplastic (TPU) device embedded in the heel helps buffer the foot from impact. 

With its 30-degree angle structure in the heel, the wearer can feel the responsive cushioning even before their foot lands flat on the ground. The rest of the midsole is constructed with a high-cushioning ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA). 

Support. Its chassis is intended to provide rigidity as the wearer to bolt around the court without the unwanted foot rotation.
