This Competition Spec Hot Launch C524 Driver features a more traditional design and setup that delivers maximum ball speed for medium to fast swing speeds. The Hot Launch C range is for the player seeking optimal launch and spin rates, while still enjoying the benefits of extreme ease of use, forgiveness, and accuracy.
Ridgeback Technology - TE engineers have brought the Ridgeback Tech concept from Exotics to Hot Launch with the addition of a Ridgeback rail on the crown of the clubhead. The Ridgeback rail provides increased structural properties that help produce more power across the entire face, including the extreme perimeters. The Ridgeback activation is also utilized as a unique alignment aid at address.
MOI-Boosting Rear Sole Weight – A back weight is strategically placed to the extreme rear of the clubhead to place more mass at the extreme trailing edge of the clubhead. The back weight creates an extremely high MOI rating, a 5% increase over the previous iteration, and surpassing 5,000 grams per cubic centimeter squared for top in-line stability. This weighting dramatically affects a lower and deeper CG positioning of the club for ease of launch and more forgiveness off the face at impact.
Diamond Face VFT – Diamond Face VFT technology is a breakthrough in face technology that features 37 different thick and thin diamond shapes or “mini-trampolines” behind the face. Diamond Face VFT produces a hotter face with faster ball speeds and better performance on off-center hits, as well as reduced spin.
RyzerSole Rail Design - A new RyzerSole rail design featured on all of the C524 metals extends from leading edge to trailing edge. The new sole rail design produces a super-low CG for high-launching shots with optimized spin rates and maximum ball speed off the face. The rail design lowered the CG by 8% compared to the C523, making it easier to achieve greater power and increased forgiveness.
360° Cup Face Design –The premium 6-4 Titanium head features a deep 360° Cup Face design. Cup Face construction increases the amount of face flexing on off-center hits to achieve higher ball speeds and creates a more solid feel.
Ultra-Light Premium Shafts – The C524 Driver comes stock with an ultra-light ALDILA ASCENT PL (Performance Light) graphite shaft. The ALDILA ASCENT PL provides lightweight performance with faster club head speeds without sacrificing feel. ASCENT PL technology is designed to resist ovaling, keeping the club head in position and creating more center-face contact. ALDILA ASCENT PL is best for golfers seeking lightweight performance and additional speed without sacrificing stability.
