CLEVELAND GOLF INTRODUCES THE CLEVELAND CBX 2,
PUT FORGIVENESS IN YOUR SHORT GAME
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – July 29, 2019 – Cleveland Golf is proud to announce the release of the Cleveland CBX 2 wedge. Built for the vast number of golfers playing cavity back irons, the Cleveland CBX 2 offers spin, control and all the forgiveness you need. Cleveland's CBX 2 will launch in North America on Aug. 30, 2019.
The Cleveland CBX 2 is a new perspective on wedge design. For far too long, wedges have been stuck in a top down approach of designing for the world's best players at the expense of the many everyday golfers who define the sport. With the Cleveland CBX 2, Cleveland Golf designed a forgiving, cavity back wedge built for the everyday player. While it still features tour wedge technologies that Cleveland Golf is renowned for, the Cleveland CBX 2 offers additional forgiveness to help serious golfers upgrade their short game.
"The short game is critical to playing your best golf, and playing wedges designed for your game – and the shots you like to hit – is key," said Brian Schielke, Marketing Director at Cleveland Golf. "That's why Cleveland CBX 2 wedges were created. They make the short game easier and more forgiving for the majority of golfers out there playing game-improvement equipment."
Cleveland CBX 2 features a new Hollow-Cavity design with a hollow chamber near the heel and a heavy weight placed in the toe. This unique structure maximizes MOI and perimeter weighting for unrivaled short game forgiveness, while still maintaining a sleek, attractive profile at address.
Additionally, the Cleveland CBX 2 offers the latest iteration of Feel Balancing Technology that achieves a new milestone: a toe-biased center of gravity. Combined with a Gelback TPU Insert for vibration reduction, Cleveland's CBX 2 provides a soft, satisfying feel and crisp feedback at impact.
"The Cleveland CBX 2 gives you 25% more shots on the sweet spot," said Dustin Brekke, Engineering Manager, Research and Development. "This helps you hit better shots, but also drastically improves feel at impact."
With Cleveland CBX 2, three distinct sole grind offerings arranged by loft deliver more versatility to execute any short game shot. Meanwhile, a staple of Cleveland's wedge philosophy is spin. Cleveland CBX 2 features fourth generation Rotex Face Technology that delivers the sharpest Tour Zip Grooves, laser milling and aggressive face milling for maximum spin and short game control.
"It's remarkable seeing the performance improvements when golfers switch to the extra forgiveness, better sole designs, and overall weighting that blends perfectly with their cavity back irons," Schielke said.
