Cobra Golf introduced its new SpeedZone drivers — the company’s fastest and most powerful drivers to date. By optimizing six unique zones of performance, these drivers deliver speed and distance in two new models, the King and the King Xtreme. Every component from the internal chassis design to the exterior shaping was engineered to maximize power output.
The club face is crucial for generating speed. Employing a CNC milled face, Cobra has expanded the milled area of the face by 95%, enabling them to control face and leading-edge thickness. According to the company, face and perimeter curvature can be up to five times more precise than traditional face polishing. Every club is inspected to ensure a larger SpeedZone across the face to produce maximum ball speed.
Incorporating a titanium T-bar speed chassis, engineers removed unnecessary titanium to create more discretionary weight while maintaining a strong structure designed to withstand high speed collisions. This weight is utilized to create low CG and high inertia which the company believes delivers “fast, forgiving performance.” Its new chassis allows for more carbon fiber than ever before. A 360 Carbon wrap crown design makes up 50% of the driver body, providing ample stiffness and support to the chassis while saving 25 grams of discretionary weight. That weight has been repositioned low and back as well as around the perimeter where it is needed most.
Cobra continues to deliver a low CG for optimal performance. In the SpeedZone driver, 69 grams of mass (vs. 40 in Speedback) has been strategically positioned low for optimal launch conditions. The new shaping harnesses airflow for maximum drag reduction and increased clubhead speed. SpeedZone’s high MOI design positions weight away from the center of the head to maximize stability on off-center hits for longer, straighter drives.
Appealing to a wide range of ability levels, two distinct driver models are offered. The King driver features a traditional shape profile with front to back CG adjustability. This allows better players to work the ball with ease and fine tune launch and low spin without sacrificing forgiveness. The King Xtreme is ideal for golfers who are looking for a more consistent, straight trajectory with maximum forgiveness on off-center hits. It features a slightly larger profile with more perimeter weighting and a 17-gram tungsten weight that sits behind a rear exhaust pipe design to achieve the company’s highest measured MOI to date.
“Our new King SpeedZone drivers emphatically answered the question we are always asked — can you really improve the driver any further and stay within the rules of golf? That answer is yes,” said Tom Olsavsky, VP of R&D for Cobra Golf. “By approaching design the same way you would if you were trying to create the world’s fastest cars, we left nothing on the table in terms of speed considerations. With our six zones of performance, SpeedZone is the fastest driver that we have ever produced.”
Each driver is available in gloss black/yellow or matte black/white head colors. The women’s driver is available in gloss black/rose gold. SpeedZone drivers continue to employ the Cobra Connect smart golf system.
