Following on from last year’s overwhelmingly popular Speedzone range - with which Bryson DeChambeau used to shred the world’s best courses and pound drives extreme distances – the NEW Cobra Golf RAD Speed family promises to be a super-sized upgrade.
Gains in distance, forgiveness and ball speed have all been achieved through a design concept that leans heavily on the Radius Of Gyration engineering formula, from which the RADSPEED name has been derived.
While the finer details of complex engineering theories are usually out of bounds for most golfers unless your name is Bryson DeChambeau, Cobra use the theory to position mass strategically, relative to a club’s centre of gravity.
They’re straighter, longer, easier to hit and, yep, they are RAD!
COBRA RADSPEED DRIVERS
Cobra are well aware length off the tee is the clear number one priority for most players but unfortunately distance isn’t across-the-board equal with drivers.
Designing a driver that performs well for one type of golfer will often be not so great for another group of golfers, and vice versa.
It’s a complicated exercise but to capitalise on the RADSPEED concept, Cobra have diversified their driver offerings into three distinct RADSPEED driver models – the standard RADSPEED driver, the RADSPEED XB and the RADSPEED XD.
Each 460cc driver is weighted uniquely to produce performance skewed towards different swing characteristics and requirements to meet the performance demands of practically every player on the planet.
RADSPEED DRIVER TECHNOLOGY
Strategic radial weight positioning optimises performance across three RADSPEED driver models.
A lighter rigid T-shaped frame offers extreme stability to produce impressive forgiveness and feel.
Milled Infinity Face
Ultra-accurate CNC face milling increases the area of maximum ball speed on the RADSPEED face
Carbon Fibre Crown
Thinner and lighter carbon fibre wrap saves weight, which is repositioned to optimise performance.
THREE RADSPEED DRIVER MODELS
Cobra’s RADSPEED driver range offers three models, which extract speed and distance by optimising the good and minimising the bad across three distinct swing types and skill levels.
Designed for flushers who require workability, low spin and low launch to complement an above-average swing speed, the RADSPEED driver’s compact head shape features a forward-biased radial weighting setup. Greater mass is positioned to the front of the sole (16g fixed weight; 12g adjustable) and works together with its rearward counterparts (8g fixed weight; 2g adjustable) to achieve fast ball speeds, incredible forgiveness and low-spinning distance.
The RADSPEED XB driver, short for “Xtreme Back”, is big, bad and blinkin’ long. Its oversized address profile will inspire confidence and a rear-biased radial weighting configuration makes it the fastest and straightest of the three RADSPEED drivers. Proportionately more weight in the rear (14g fixed, 6g adjustable) and a single fixed 8g weight in the front produces distance and forgiveness that tops the charts. The RADSPEED XB and XD drivers are also available in women’s models.
The weak fade of a chronic slicer is a distance-sapper off the tee but the RADSPEED XD driver, short for “Xtreme Draw”, is designed to straighten up drives and add distance with strategic heel-biased radial weighting. The oversized head profile features a fixed weight on the rear (14g) to boost forgiveness and 8g on the front to elevate speed, but 10g of internal weight located in the heel helps the clubface close faster through impact. It’ll fight a slice and, spoiler alert: could even produce a draw.
COBRA RADSPEED DRIVER FEATURES
All three RADSPEED drivers include a Cobra Connect GOS sensor embedded in the end of the standard Lamkin Crossline grip, which can automatically connect to the Arccos game analyser for shot tracking statistics on every drive. Cobra’s adjustable hosel can alter lofts by plus or minus 1.5˚ and all three RADSPEED drivers offer a choice of premium aftermarket shafts. The RADSPEED driver range is available in a yellow and black colour scheme.

COBRA RADSPEED FAIRWAY WOODS
The Cobra RADSPEED Fairway Wood line-up is a chip off the old block, sharing the same radial weighting technology that is at the centre of Cobra’s RADSPEED drivers.
And like their driver counterparts, there are also three distinct fairway wood models that will suit different swings, styles and slices through the customised RADSPEED weighting design.
RADSPEED fairway woods are the fastest, longest and most forgiving in golf and, whether used from the tee box or off the deck, they’ll always perform when the pressure is on.
RADSPEED FAIRWAY TECHNOLOGY
Cobra’s radial weighting breakthrough personalises performance in three distinct fairway woods.
Hollow Split Rails
Hollow rails in the front create 70% more flex from heel to toe for higher launch and faster ball speed.
Milled Infinity Face
Precise CNC face milling is used on a Cobra fairway wood for the first time, for a larger sweet spot.
Ultra-Thin Carbon Crown
RADSPEED Fairways feature a light and lean carbon crown that shifts mass forward in the club head for faster ball speeds.
THREE FAIRWAY WOOD MODELS
There are three distinct fairway wood models that will suit different swings, styles and slices. They also feature the same radial weighting technology that is at the centre of Cobra’s RADSPEED drivers.
Traditional in appearance and made for better players, the Cobra RADSPEED fairway wood’s radial weighting is forward-biased to produce high launch and ultra-low spin rates. Superb distance and exceptional forgiveness, from the tee or fairway, is the result and its weighting configuration (16g front, 7g rear) also provides workability. It’s also available in a women’s version.
When Cobra go big, they mean it. The RADSPEED Big Tour fairway wood has the biggest head and strongest loft in the fairway wood line-up and it’s versatile off the tee or fairway. A deep face and wide head make it almost driver-like and it’s the fastest and lowest-spinning of the RADSPEED fairway woods thanks to its forward-biased weighting (16g internal, 7g front weight).
Slicers get some relief through the heel-biased design of the new RADSPEED Draw fairway wood. With 6g of internal weighting in the heel helping to close the face at impact, the RADSPEED Draw fairway wood will straighten up a weak slice while 7g of weight at the rear produces a powerful mid-to-high ball flight combined with a high level of forgiveness.
COBRA RADSPEED FAIRWAY FEATURES
RADSPEED fairway woods all feature Cobra’s adjustable hosel that can alter loft by plus or minus 1.5°. A Cobra Connect sensor is equipped throughout the RADSPEED range in the end of the grip for statistical tracking via the Arccos app. The RADSPEED fairway range is available in a yellow and black colour scheme.

COBRA RADSPEED HYBRIDS
Cobra’s RADSPEED hybrids are weighted specifically for low-spinning, high-launching performance that translates into effortless distance.
Employed as a long-iron replacement or the ideal solution to plug a nagging distance gap in the bag, Cobra RADSPEED hybrids will land soft on the green through a combination of radial weighting and a thin and flexible forged face that launches shots high and long.
They’re the most versatile clubs in the bag and won’t disappoint from the fairway, rough or even a tight lie in the sand.
RADSPEED HYBRID TECHNOLOGY
Two 6g internal front RAD weights (12g total) and a 7g back weight combine to deliver ultra-low spin with high launch and forgiveness.
Hollow Split Rails
Hollow rails in the front create 70% more flex from heel to toe for higher launch and more speed.
A forged insert is thinner and more flexible to create faster ball speeds and higher launch for greater stopping power into greens.
Two Baffler sole rails prevent digging and allow the club to glide effortlessly out of tight lies, thick rough, and even bunkers.
TWO HYBRID MODELS
Both the RADSPEED hybrid and RADSPEED ONE Length hybrid, features front-biased internal RADIAL WEIGHTING and an external back weight to deliver low spin, high launch, maximum forgiveness and accuracy.
Twin 12g internal weights work with 7g of rear mass to make RADSPEED hybrids low-spinning, high-launching wonder clubs. Cobra have added hollow split rails at the front of the sole for improved interaction through the turf and they allow the forged steel face to flex and rebound more efficiently for extra club head speed. RADSPEED hybrids are available in four different lofts.
Based on Cobra team member and “mad scientist” Bryson DeChambeau’s unique approach, ONE Length RADSPEED hybrids all feature a 37.5-inch shaft. It equates to a seven-iron length and complements Cobra’s existing ONE Length range of clubs. ONE Length hybrids feature the same radial weighting and baffler rails as the standard RADSPEED hybrids and come in three lofts.

COBRA RADSPEED IRONS
When Cobra ventured into a radial weighting-centric design for their RADSPEED line, it coincided with their push into 3D printing, which begun with the Cobra Supersport-35 putter.
Never passing up an opportunity to incorporate the latest technology into their clubs, Cobra have included a 3D printed medallion on the RADSPEED irons.
The new medallion saves weight and integrates perfectly with the radial weighting design that makes RADSPEED irons ultra-impressive. It’s a first for Cobra and the distance and performance that RADSPEED and RADSPEED ONE Length irons offer could well lead to many more “firsts” for players out on the course.
RADSPEED IRON TECHNOLOGY
A 10g weight screw is positioned in the toe to tune the centre of gravity, for more distance and forgiveness for off-centre strikes.
Forged Pwrshell Face
A thin, forged face insert increases flex around the sweet spot for extra ball speed and a higher launch.
3D Printed Medallion
An intricate lattice design that could only be created through 3D printing saves weight and finetunes the feel of RADSPEED irons.
Heel & Toe Weighting
10g and 3g of mass is positioned on the toe and heel extremities to create the best combination of speed, low spin and stability for optimized performance.
TWO IRON MODELS
Both the RADSPEED irons and RADSPEED ONE Length irons represent a significant leap forward in golf innovation. A breakthrough in weighting technology is combined with the first application of 3D printing in golf club design, setting the bar for performance and technology higher than ever before.
Available in 4-SW, Cobra RADSPEED irons feature a progressive head shaping and hosel length
throughout the set to optimise launch, distance and accuracy for each iron in the set. RADSPEED 4-7 irons are multi-component irons while 8-SW are single piece construction, fitted with V and U grooves respectively for low spinning distance in the long irons and more spin for greater stopping power in the short irons. Cobra Connect sensors are standard on RADSPEED irons and link with the Arccos stat tracking app.
Cobra RADSPEED irons are also available in the Bryson Dechambeau-inspired ONE Length option that is designed for consistency and repeatability. Possessing all the benefits of the RADSPEED design like their variable length counterparts, ONE Length irons are fitted with the same length shaft (37.5 inches, equivalent to a seven iron) and have identical head weights, to improve consistency and feel throughout the set. They are also calibrated with unique lie angles, offsets and sole widths for optimised high launch in the long-and-mid irons and lower trajectories and more accuracy and control in the short irons and wedges. ONE Length irons are all fitted with Cobra Connect sensors.
