Explosive protection is the motto of this year’s Propulse Fury; a lighter and faster update to the classic Propulse mold. The new Active Flexion upper is a mesh fabric that moves better with the foot than the old plastic upper. If you’re worried about durability with the new material Babolat has you covered; the Cell Shield piece that we saw in the previous Jet model has moved to this Propulse as well, wrapping over the mid and forefoot on the medial side to protect from toe drag. The Propulse still has the Powerbelt technology that wraps through the laces and helps lock down the foot and create a snug fit. The fit feels more comfortable than previous models due to the softer fabric but expect this Propulse to be just as cushioned and durable as previous generations.
