GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- PrideSports, maker of Softspikes® and the world’s leading manufacturer of golf cleats continued its dominance as Pulsar™, the #1 cleat on the PGA TOUR, kicked-off the 2007 season by capturing back to back victories at the Mercedes Championships and the Sony Open. PrideSports’ plastic cleats have been #1 on the PGA TOUR for 11th consecutive seasons.
Led by Softspikes’ Pulsar™, the #1 plastic cleat model on the PGA TOUR, and BlackWidow™, the #1 selling cleat model in the world, PrideSports opens the 2007 season with almost 70% usage among PGA TOUR golfers wearing plastic cleats. Further, the start of the 2007 season reveals that plastic cleats continue to be the choice among the majority of PGA TOUR golfers, with almost 70% player usage.
“PrideSports has been dominating usage on TOUR for so long, and we are thrilled to kick-off another season on top,” said Joe Zellar, President, PrideSports. “Consistent TOUR leadership is important for credibility, as it provides the ultimate endorsement for comfort, traction, and overall performance characteristics of our cleats.”
Pulsar™ by Softspikes® features the Company’s proprietary Reactive Comfort Technology™. Through this technology, Pulsar delivers 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 offers enhanced strength, responsiveness and more than twice the flexibility of any cleat on the market. In addition, reinforced arched webbing between each of Pulsar’s legs delivers instant energy return every time the cleat is compressed. As a result, all of these features combine to produce a cleat offering unmatched stability and comfort.
Softspikes is a division of Pride Sports, which was formed in January 2003, following Pride Manufacturing Company’s purchase of Softspikes, Inc., and its sister company Trisport, Ltd. of England. This acquisition essentially formed the world’s premier golf accessories company, as Pride and Softspikes are the world’s leading golf tee and golf cleat lines, respectively. Today, Pride Sports is the world leader in the design and manufacture of cleats, spikes and receptacles for the entire golf footwear industry.
