Created from the same soft, lightweight polyurethane as the popular C1 line, the new C1X features a flat-front, parallel shape designed to stabilize the putting stroke and encourage proper grip pressure for increased feel on the green. Its unique embossing pattern helps prevent slippage and increase comfort. The original C1 has the same familiar pistol design as previous iterations, but now includes an updated notch and diamond grip pattern, to help eliminate wrist breakdown.

Coupled with the SLIM-Lok fastening system, PiviX represents a significant shift within the industry wherein shoe manufacturers are able to develop lighter, lower-profile designs, allowing golfers to get closer to the turf for increased stability, feel and balance.

The #1 Brand on Tour®, CHAMP spikes are preferred by more professional golfers than any other brand and have been used by 38 of the past 54 major champions.

Other highlights from the brand include the Tour-proven Zarma FLYtee, which increases distance and accuracy on tee shots for players of all skill levels and the new C2X grip. The latter features a clean, traditional look complemented by a debossed repeating surface pattern that helps to increase hand traction in all weather conditions.
