Nike is kicking off 2016 with the release of four new golf ball models, the RZN Tour ball, engineered to feel soft without sacrificing distance.
Featuring a four-piece urethane cover design, the RZN Tour ball utilizes four key components: RZN 4.0, Speedlock X Core, Speedlock Mantle and Flight Suit Cover. These combined technologies help propel the RZN Tour/Black and RZN Tour/Platinum balls to added yardage and a softer feel, versus the previous RZN Black and RZN Platinum.
Made with the newest iteration of RZN material, RZN 4.0, the blue center core is not only softer but also 10 percent bigger than the previous generation. This gives the ball what amounts to a bigger engine, thus unlocking faster ball speeds.
The RZN Speed models (Red for longer carry and White for softer feel) both feature three-piece, Ionomer covered designs that are aimed at players with moderate to lower swing speeds. The same larger core and locking technology featured in the RZN Tour models is used in the Speed models to provide a better energy transfer at impact for more distance and improved performance on off-center hits. In addition the RZN Speed golf balls feature a softer RZN formulation for a softer feel than previous models without any loss of distance.
All four models will be available at www.nike.com on January 22 and at select retailers on January 29.
