XXIO 12 Driver Design & Features
XXIO have worked on reducing the overall weight of the new 12 model driver to allow easy swinging and turn it into maximum ball speed.
The 12 driver boasts enhanced aerodynamics with one of the key design elements the ActivWing feature for improved airflow around the crown to help increase ball speed.
The ActivWing and airfoil shape manipulates airflow similar to the wings of an aeroplane, providing stability through the downswing to ensure the clubface meets the ball square on impact.
XXIO believe the design tightens impact area on the face, makes finding the sweet spot easier and reduces the amount of slice imparted on the ball.
The driver also featured Rebound Frame technology with four alternating layers of stiff and flexible zones behind the face. The flex zones work like a spring to transfer energy into the ball for more speed and distance.
To face itself boasts Cup Face technology with varying degrees of thickness of Titanium to ensure ball speeds are not impacted by off-centre strikes.
The face is divided into six Bulge and Roll sections which correct the impact on high, low, toe or heel strikes to keep shots straight for longer and maximise carry distances.
The XXIO driver is available in 9.5 degrees, 10.5 degrees and 11.5 degrees loft options.
Verdict: Is the XXIO 12 Driver any good?
There’s a lot to like about the new XXIO driver, other than the hefty price tag it comes with.
The combination of technology design elements all combine with the same result – to add more carry and more distance to your game.
This is a very hittable driver and the light weight means to you can swing easy and generate impressive ball speeds. Expect to add distance from the tee with this in the bag.
