XR 16 Driver
The fast, forgiving outcome of a collaborative effort between Callaway and Boeing aerodynamics experts
Callaway’s renowned Research & Development team worked closely with aerodynamics experts at Boeing to achieve a new threshold in ball speed with the XR 16 Driver. By pinpointing the size and placement of the re-engineered Speed Step Crown, engineers saved weight and lowered drag. That result is an increase in clubhead speed and, in turn, more ball speed. The extreme forgiveness of the XR 16 Driver was accomplished thanks to the larger, high MOI shape with a stretched crown, and a lower and deeper center of gravity. All that forgiveness leads to more ball speed at every impact location, which can add more distance for golfers of all ability levels. Callaway’s next-generation R*MOTO Face Technology is nine grams lighter and thinner than in previous models, yet still stronger due to the use of new 8-1-1 titanium. The body is lighter, too, which leads to more ball speed across the entire face.
