Move Beyond Titanium
Introducing Forged Composite
A game changing new clubhead material developed in collaboration with researchers from two internationally recognized universities and supercar icon Lamborghini. The proprietary forging process concentrates over 500,000 turbostratic fibers per square inch to create a material that is lighter, stronger than titanium.
The precision of the Forged Composite tooling also gives Callaway engineers complete control over wall thickness and surface geometry. That means each Forged Composite part is optimized down to one thousandth of an inch, reducing weight to the absolute minimum. We've even been able to incorporate new features that were impossible to manufacture before Forged Composite.
The result is an exceptionally lightweight head with optimal mass distributions that delivers longer drives and uncompromised forgiveness. Revolutionize your game with the power of Forged Composite.
What does turbostratic mean?
Turbostratic describes the atomic structure of the high strength carbon fibers used in Forged Composite. Sheets of carbon atoms are intertwined and aligned with the length of the fiber to provide much higher strength than typical graphite fibers.
Callaway and Lamborghini Form Strategic Partnership
The world-renowned R&D teams of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. and Callaway Golf have formed a unique and powerful alliance. The first collaboration of this strategic partnership is a co-developed material called Forged Composite, but the origins of this elite relationship date back many years. Through constant pursuit of lighter and stronger materials that improve product performance, Lamborghini and Callaway cultivated similar areas of expertise.
Development of advanced composite structures was a major point of convergence and goal for both organizations. These advanced materials – comprised of turbostratic carbon fibers – feature superior strength and performance characteristics in comparison to the metal alloys generally used in the automotive and golf industries.
For Lamborghini, lighter and stronger composite materials enabled their designers to create important components of their technological demonstrator, "Sesto Elemento," featuring unforeseen power-to-weight ratio and acceleration capability.
For Callaway, employing carbon composites in place of steel and titanium offered engineers the ability to design increasingly advanced clubheads with a greater transfer of power upon impact with the ball and more accurate trajectories. Forged Composite, which debuted at the 2010 Paris Motor Show and in the new Diablo Octane Driver, is the first collaborative element of the Callaway and Lamborghini alliance.
