The latest innovation in club design from Cobra Golf® will hit the shops and online retailers at the end of January. The family of RADSPEED Drivers is aimed at maximizing performance for the full spectrum of players through optimized weighting and an array of advanced technologies.


The design concept originated from a popular formula in engineering called Radius of Gyration, which is the distance from the club’s centre of gravity to each weight or technology location. COBRA’s engineers discovered that by increasing the Radius of Gyration and the distance between the front and back weights, they could create the perfect blend of fast ball speed, low spin, and forgiveness in one driver.

“Our new RADSPEED drivers represent a true breakthrough in performance. Our engineers have outdone themselves by pushing the Radius of Gyration to new levels and delivering three distinct drivers aimed at three different types of golfers. With the RADSPEED driver family, COBRA can truly offer optimized performance for everyone from Tour players to weekend warriors and those who need help correcting a slice.”

Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D, COBRA Golf

Utilizing Radial Weighting, the weight is strategically positioned in each of the three new driver models, creating three distinct performances.

(1) The RADSPEED for faster swingers who want distance through faster ball speeds, low spin and trajectory control,

(2) the RADSPEED XB for players who want distance through faster ball speeds and consistency across the face in the form forgiveness and stability,

(3) the RADSPEED XD for those who want distance while reducing their slice or creating a draw.


The new RADSPEED driver is designed with a 460cc traditional shape, and forward-biased Radial Weighting to appeal to the better player seeking low spin, low launch and workability. The chassis features 28g positioned in the front, (16g of fixed weight; & 12g adjustable weight) and an additional 10g positioned in the back (8g fixed weight; 2g adjustable weight) to create the perfect balance of front and back weighting for speed and stability.

By pushing the weight as far forward and as far back as possible, COBRA engineers were able to design a driver capable of providing the fastest ball speed with extreme forgiveness – an engineering feat that has not been achieved until now.

Using a lighter T-Bar Speed Chassis and a thinner Carbon Fiber Wrap Crown, engineers were able to save 13g (7g in the chassis/6g in the carbon) that they could reposition forward to lower the CG and produce more speed.

Two adjustable weights in the front and back (12g & 2g) allow players to fine-tune their desired launch and spin performance. A final but very notable feature of the new RADSPEED driver is the CNC Milled Infinity Face, which requires about 25 minutes of milling for every single clubface produced.

COBRA’s proprietary CNC milling process is a significant advancement over the traditional hand polishing method and produces thickness and bulge and roll tolerances that are up to five times more precise. This process ensures consistent performance on every driver, which delivers thinner faces for maximum ball speed and perfect curvatures for forgiveness on off-centre hits.

The RADSPEED comes in RH/LH with a choice of 3 premium aftermarket shafts including Fujikura Motore X F3 (stiff & reg); the Project X HZRDUS RDX Blue in x-stiff (RH only) and Stiff; and the Fujikura Motore X F1 in x-stiff (RH) and stiff (RH/LH). The driver features a Lamkin Crossline (58+) CONNECT Black grip and is available in Matte Black/Turbo Yellow colourway.

For players who want plenty of speed and distance but value forgiveness, and a club that flies effortlessly straight, the RADSPEED XB is the answer. One of the two “Xtreme,” versions in the RADSPEED lineup, the XB (Xtreme Back) features an oversized address profile that inspires confidence on the tee.

The 460cc clubhead utilizes rear-biased Radial Weighting to deliver the fastest and straightest ball flight of the three models. The driver features 20g positioned in the back (14g of fixed weight; 6g interchangeable weight), and 8g of fixed weight in the front, making the XB arguably COBRA’s fastest and most forgiving driver to date.

For golfers that preferred COBRA’s 2020 SPEEDZONE Xtreme driver, the RADSPEED XB delivers even more ball speed and lower spin while maintaining that extreme stability.  Additional technologies featured in the XB driver and the rest of the RADSPEED drivers include a titanium T-Bar Speed Chassis and Thin-Ply Carbon Fiber Crown, CNC Milled Infinity Face and Radial Weighting Technology.

The XB Driver comes in RH/LH with a choice of 3 premium aftermarket shafts: Project X Even Flow Riptide (Reg & Lite flex) available in the 10.5° and 12° lofts; Fujikura Motore X F3 (Stiff & Reg) and the Project X HZRDUS RDX Blue (X & Stiff) available in the 9° and 10.5° lofts. The driver features a Lamkin Crossline (58+) CONNECT Black grip and is available in Gloss Black/Turbo Yellow colourway.

RADSPEED XD (“Xtreme Draw) DRIVER – RRP £369

The RADSPEED XD debuts as the newest addition to COBRA’s driver offerings, answering the need for a draw-biased, straight-neck driver. The XD is COBRA’s longest and fastest draw-biased driver designed to provide maximum distance and slice-fighting power. 


This second “Xtreme” model features the same slightly oversized 460cc profile as the XB, but with heel-biased Radial Weighting. 10g of fixed internal weight is positioned in the heel to enable easier face closure for straighter, draw-biased drives. Another 14g is positioned in the back for extreme forgiveness, while 8g is positioned in the front to increase speed.
