TaylorMade has introduced Kalea, a full set of clubs designed for female players.
It’s the first women-exclusive offering from TaylorMade in over a decade.
Kalea features optimized lofts, low/back centre of gravity locations, slot technology in the soles and Kalea SlimTech shafts with smaller tip diameters to help increase launch angle at impact.
Kalea’s blend of features are used to work in unison to maximize performance for slower swing speeds, generate more consistent yardage gaps throughout the set and produce higher ball flights.
The set is also designed to create a smoother transition between the different club types by managing lofts, lengths and head.
Kalea is available in 13 clubs – driver, three, five and seven fairway woods, four and five Rescues, six and seven transition irons, eight and nine irons, pitching wedge, sand wedge and putter.
A Kalea cart bag is also available separately.
Kalea will be sold in an eight-piece combo set (4-5 Rescues, 6-7 Transition irons, 8i – SW Cavity irons). A Kalea driver, fairway metalwoods (3, 3HL, 5, 7) will also be available for purchase individually, as well as a putter and bag.
Complementing the release of Kalea golf clubs, TaylorMade has also announced the release of Kalea golf balls, a two-piece ball with a soft cover and low compression, engineered to perform best when played in conjunction Kalea golf clubs.
“We’ve learned a great deal about product performance in the last decade, much of which was geared toward faster swing speeds,” said Tomo Bystedt, senior director of product creation.
“For us, Kalea was a great opportunity to take our learnings on slower swing speeds and bring them to market with products that provide meaningful performance for female players and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results,” added Bystedt.
