Two new ultra high-tech Nike drivers, the SQ SUMO 5900 and SQ SUMO 5000, are soon to be launched – but you won’t be getting one for Christmas.
The launch date, designated ‘SUMO Saturday’ by Nike, has been set down for February 2, 2008, according to the last est announcement by the sporting goods giant.
The new drivers, according to Nike, who have laid claim to being the first golfing company to “initiate the rapid rise of Moment of Inertia (MOI) through the power of science and geometry”, take the latest Nike drivers to a new high on the “revolutionary geometric path” the company has pioneered
The SQ SUMO² 5900 and SQ SUMO 5000 are Nike’s second generation of SUMO drivers, each following in the footsteps of the original SQ SUMO² and SQ SUMO, launched in 2007.
“Tom Stites and his research and development team have taken the successes from Nike Golf’s original SUMO² and SUMO drivers and made them even better,” says Stan Grissinger, Nike’s Category Business Director for Club and Balls.
“They are scientists at work, the results of which have led Nike Golf to lead the PGA Tour in driver wins for two consecutive years.”
The SUMO² 5900 features a square-shaped head, a deeper face, a convex crown, and redefined body shape to increase ball speed and accuracy.
With the MOI at the maximum allowed of 5900, the SUMO² 5900 offers greater forgiveness on off-center hits with a tighter shot dispersion.
The result, claim Nike, is the straightest, longest and most accurate driver Nike Golf has ever made. Featuring Nike’s Powerbow weighting, the weight in the SUMO² 5900 is repositioned to the farthest corners of the Nike PowerBow design, optimizing head stability and delivering ultimate accuracy.
The SUMO² 5900 has a multi-thickness face, which maximizes faster ball speeds from every point on the face.
The SUMO 5000 is a more traditionally round-shaped driver with a deep-face profile. This gives golfers the freedom to shape the ball or hit it long and straight. The PowerBow design strategically positions weight in the club head to optimize the center of gravity location.
The SQ SUMO² 5900 and the SQ SUMO 5000 both have 460cc heads, feature SasQuatch/Diamana shafts, and are available with 8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5°, 11.5°, 13° and 16° faces.
The SQ SUMO 5000 is also available in a 13°offset.
The SQ SUMO² 5900 and the SQ SUMO 5000 will carry suggested retail prices of $499.99 and $360.00 respectively
