Softspikes Reiterate No.1 Tour Status with Unrivalled 2012 Cleat Range

12.10am 6th September 2012 - New Products

Softspikes®’ the world’s best-selling golf cleat brand, have produced a range of cleats to cater for every eventuality in the world of golf. This is the all-encompassing collection that has enabled the brand to maintain their status as the number-one cleat on Tour.

Over a decade at the forefront of cleat technology has led the brand to become one of the most recognised across the golfing spectrum. Now every amateur can follow in the footsteps of the golfing elite, and benefit from unparalleled traction, thanks to Softspikes®.

With the advanced rotational design of the new Cyclone, the progressive adjustability of the Tour proven BLACK WIDOW Tour, and the revolutionary Pulsar design, featuring proprietary Reactive Comfort Technology™, it’s no surprise that golfers of all abilities prefer the superior performance, traction, stability and comfort found in Softspikes’ latest offering.

Headlining the remarkably successful range is the coveted Cyclone that has already become the sort-after cleat of 2012/13.

Available in an exciting black/gold colour option, the new cleat features multi-material components with an ultra-advanced rotational design, envisioned to counteract undesirable forces at work during impact.

This cleat utilises the popular Fast Twist* thread, which is the market leader in fixing systems.

BLACK WIDOW Tour, the World’s first adjustable cleat as designed by Softspikes, offers self-adjusting traction technology and new ‘Support Rings’ that enable golfers to customise the level of comfort in their cleats. Highlighted by eight traction elements, including four large flexible legs that provide unmatched grip on any terrain/surface, the cleat is matched with four cushioning towers that absorb secondary loads and then distribute the golfer’s weight throughout the cleat.

These features combine with proprietary ‘Support Rings’ to allow golfers the option to select the comfort setting that best suits their game. Support Rings attached to each individual BLACK WIDOW Tour cleat can be positioned in two distinct settings: Tour Comfort and Tour Firm.

BWT stemmed from the success of the original BLACK WIDOW cleat. Still in the line today, this product first introduced Softspikes’ Dynamic Cleat Technology, which provides movement and flexibility in the cleat legs, making them extra green-friendly while providing customary comfort and traction.

Softspikes®’ Pulsar revolutionised the golf cleat market thanks to its proprietary Reactive Comfort Technology™. Through this technology, Pulsar is able to deliver maximum comfort and performance via a 16 component design that reacts to every angle of force exerted by the golfer.

As part of this design, flexor knuckles placed at the flex point on each of Pulsar’s eight legs offer enhanced strength, responsiveness and more than twice the flexibility of any cleat on the market. In addition, the reinforced arched webbing between each of Pulsar’s legs delivers instant energy return every time the cleat is compressed, resulting in a cleat that offers unmatched stability and comfort.

The entire 2012/13 range is widely available now.
