12.38pm 18th March 2022 - New Products

KBS, the pioneering golf shaft brand that offers a high-performance shaft for every club in the bag, has launched its lightest ever steel shaft, the KBS TOUR LITE, offering maximum distance and control in the ultimate lightweight package. 

As the newest and lightest steel shaft in the KBS product line, the KBS TOUR LITE is a 20% lighter version of the KBS TOUR Shaft, as well as 20% lighter than any standard steel shaft in the same category. 

Aimed at golfers of all abilities – from junior to elite level, the KBS TOUR LITE conclusively assists to increase swing, control, dispersion and ball speeds with independent testing showing the shaft averaging 9% more distance than its leading competitors. 

The latest pioneering shaft in the game-changing KBS arsenal is also designed for players seeking tight dispersion, higher trajectory, additional spin and precision control.

“The KBS Tour Lite shaft has been years in the making and we’ve invested heavily in R&D to create the lightest ever shaft in the KBS range, that is not only available to any golfer, but offers the same game-enhancing benefits as our most popular shaft, the KBS Tour, just in a lighter package.,” said Director of R&D and master shaft-maker Kim Braly.

“It features a mid-weight construction and advanced step pattern which works together with the revolutionary 3-flex system, that enables the centre of gravity to move higher up, providing players with the distance and control in a lightweight frame,” he added.

The Chrome finished KBS TOUR LITE Shaft is available in three weight and flex options –  95g Regular; 100g Stiff; and 105g X-stiff in 2-PW irons and a parallel (.370 diameter) and tapered (.355) tip choice.

Played by more than 300 Tour players worldwide, KBS partners with every club manufacturer in the game and offers 31 different shafts through the golf bag, including 19 iron options featuring different weights and flexes. There is also the TG Graphite Wood shaft; a popular Tour Graphite Hybrid option, four wedge shafts offering different weights, flexes and trajectory; and two putter shafts, including the 1 One Step. All KBS shafts are designed to benefit the game of the broadest range of golfers – from global Tour stars to accomplished amateurs and juniors.

The KBS TOUR LITE shaft is available now at an MSRP price of £45-50.
