The “coolest” shirts in golf? adidas Golf announces climachill Apparel

Published

on

Press Release: Carlsbad, Calif. (May 13, 2014) – adidas Golf, an industry leader in innovation, technology and performance footwear and apparel, has announced the release of the new climachill apparel collection, featuring new and exclusive fabric technologies designed to keep golfers cool when temperatures rise on the course.

Designed and developed to raise performance levels by helping regulate body temperatures, adidas Golf engineers have revolutionized golf apparel technology with proprietary climachill fabric, engineering the most breathable material the company has ever incorporated into its apparel lines.

Delivering a cooling sensation upon contact with the skin, small aluminum dots were strategically located inside the back neck, one of the warmest areas on the human body. The climachill fabric construction utilizes woven titanium fibers that maximize surface contact with skin. Remarkably light, climachill fabric acts like an open mesh to increase air permeability, drawing heat away from the body and allowing for unmatched ventilation and evaporation of sweat to keep golfers cool like never before.

climachill apparel first appeared on the PGA TOUR at The Players Championship earlier this month, and the technology will be featured prominently in the scripting of Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson and Jason Day throughout the remainder of the 2014 PGA Tour season.

“When the temperatures rise, I need apparel that will keep me cool, comfortable and focused on my play,” said Jason Day, 2014 WGC-Accenture Match Play Champion. “I’m amazed by the technology adidas Golf has incorporated into their apparel, and with climachill, not only can I see the technology, I can feel it, too.”

PGA Tour player Jason Day tests climachill apparel in the adidas Golf Innovations video series.

“We’re consistently looking to develop the most innovative products to keep athletes comfortable so they can focus on performance,” said Davide Mattucci, Director, Global Apparel Product Marketing for adidas Golf. “The climachill fabric is, by far, our most advanced to date and the benefits are actually developed at the microscopic level. It looks and feels like a solid performance fabric, but breathes like an open-air mesh. Once someone feels it, the difference is undeniable.”

The climachill apparel collection includes five men’s polos and three women’s polos with an MSRP ranging from $75-$80 USD. Available now, visit adidasgolf.com to learn more about climachill technology and to view the entire apparel collection.

    These shirts are great. However, one of the shirts I ordered did not have the aluminum beads on them. WHOOPS! I hope Adidas QC isn’t taking advice from Taylormade.

    Luckily the course I work at decided to pick these as our uniform shirts for this year so I get to try one out for free and pick up a second for 10 bucks if I want. The dots felt a little weird at first considering it’s still cool here but in hot temperatures I think the technology will do its job.

    No way these are worth more than a $70 FJ shirt……that being said, I’ll probably try at least one. LOL

    I’ll do the same thing that I do with all of my golf purchases now. Wait until next year’s model comes out, then buy these when they’re discounted. I hear everyone in golf talking about how slow play is the killer of golf. Wrong, the prices in the golf industry have become OUTRAGEOUS. $40-70 greens fees, $15-20 gloves, balls, clubs, bags, shoes, $80 polos, $90 pants, $80 shorts. If my clubs were stolen and I had to go out and replace them all it would cost me at least $2,000.

      trolling hard I see… Not to be there bearer of bad news, but golf courses don’t operate on hopes and dreams.. They need something called money. Have you heard of it? 40-70 dollar green fees is high? I’m pretty sure once you factor in average operating costs of the building, and maintenance, you are falling well behind the 8ball. Do you understand why courses are closing? because it costs money to run them. In respect to replacing your set. It would not cost you 2000 dollars. you are out of your mind. Go to a sporting goods store and get a box set for 179.99. Or, that isn’t good enough? apparently you are wanting brand name high end clubs… Oh wait, you have a fine wine taste on a beer budget? right, that makes sense now. All this complaining about prices and cost is absurd. and no, I am not a tmag fanboy, personally can’t stand their product. No I am not a millionaire. I don’t even make more than 50k a year. So this is not based on a privileged individuals viewpoint, this is based on my employment in the industry and dealing with people like you on a daily basis.

        Couldn’t agree more. People want world-class quality on a Walmart budget. That’s not how good stuff is made. Apple doesn’t cut corners in its product, and its the biggest success story in electronics… why? Because smart people are willing to pay for high quality. No different in any other industry. There’s no status in overpaying, but there’s also no status in being a penny pincher.

          Interesting correlation between Apple and TMAG, but realize they both survive on their marketing strategy and not on their actual product line. Both companies have an AMAZING ability to tell you want you want, then sell it to you.

        So he is a troll because he had an opinion? Maybe with all of the indicators pointing for a need to grow the game, with you being in the industry and all, you may want to listen to what the people that buy your product have to say and come to something that can benefit your customers concerns and your bottom line.

    I was pleasantly surprised that there are a few marginally understated styles/colors for this technology. good on you, adidas.

    Not sure what’s so wow about that when you look at every other brand out there… Outside of the budget brands, it’s pretty consistent with where all the performance polos are these days…

    80$ for a polo WOW ! Thats a little crazy

      Not really when you think that Bobby Jones polos were north of $100 6 years ago….

      • MWP

        May 13, 2014 at 10:50 pm

        citing another example of an over-priced golf polo doesn’t make this polo any more reasonable….

    • Billy

      May 13, 2014 at 9:07 pm

      80$ is not real currency. But $80 is and that’s normal for premium apparel. I.E., Tiger Woods polo’s.

        That’s actually on the low side for TW, but these aren’t even close to TW quality. I think they’ve let Sergio run their design dept for too long now…

          May 16, 2014 at 1:43 am

          TW polos? For $90-100 those are the ones that are garbage. Collars that feel like cardboard, shiny prints, and heavy fabrics that don’t move moisture. There are a million better products in that price zone that are of much higher quality and value. Also not sure how you can determine quality of a garment from a photo. Not sure this is a comment about quality or about fanboy-dom…

          • bradford

            May 16, 2014 at 7:16 am

            Fanboy? Are you 12? That’s a word left for the “But I love my XBOX” forum. Fan, sure.

            And you obviously have no idea what you’re talking about…

Puma unveils new Ignite Fasten8 golf shoe

Published

on

Puma Golf has today introduced the newest addition to its popular spikeless franchise: the Ignite Fasten8.

The new Ignite Fasten8 ($120) family are designed to provide wearers added stability with a new, exacting fit in multiple sleek designs, featuring both a traditional lace-up style and Puma’s proprietary DISC technology, and also a PRO version with a microfiber upper. The Fasten8 lace version is also available in several eye-catching colorways for women ($100).

The lineup is led by Puma’s new Fasten8 Fit System, which consists of 8 interior webbing support straps that are integrated into the lacing system. The 8 webbing straps are secured from underneath the foot, and when the laces, or Disc, are tightened, each of the Fasten8 straps aims to deliver an exceptionally secure, personalized fit for players with all foot shapes and sizes.

The Fasten8 also features PWRCAGE (a TPU saddle integrated with midfoot support webbing straps), and PWRFRAME (an ultra-thin TPU frame placed in high-stress areas) technologies, both of which are designed to contribute to greater overall stability during the swing and increased comfort while walking. 

Speaking on the new additions from Puma, Andrew Lawson, PLM, Footwear, Puma Golf said

“The new Ignite Fasten8 shoe continues to deliver the cool, classic style that has become synonymous with PUMA Golf, in a popular mix of colorways that will appeal to a wide range of playersWhen you combine our innovative new Fasten8 Fit System with Puma’s other impressive footwear technologies you have a shoe that delivers true versatility, style and performance, all while ensuring the perfect fit and feel for every golfer.” 

Enhanced comfort and performance in a variety of turf conditions (or even for wear off the course) is provided by a strategically designed, organically-altered traction pattern in the sole, as well as IGNITE Foam in the midsole, which bids to yield energy return and cushioning throughout the course of 18 holes.

The Fasten8 shoe also features a non-stretch, waterproof and breathable mesh construction in the forefoot area, which bids to provide versatile performance in varying weather conditions and SoleShield, a micro-thin TPU film that is vacuum-formed around the midsole to make cleaning off dirt and debris quick and easy. In addition, the Fasten8 Pro features a microfiber upper for style and performance.

Puma’s Ignite Fasten8 and Ignite Fasten8 Disc are available in six colorways in sizes 7-14. Ignite Fasten8 Pro is available in five colorways in the same size range, while Ignite Fasten8 Women’s is available in sizes 5.5-12 in four colorways.

Vokey launches new Slate Blue finish on SM8 wedges

Published

on

Looks are important when it comes to having confidence in your clubs, and with that in mind, Titleist is releasing a new Slate Blue finish for its Vokey SM8 wedge line.

The slate blue finish is applied just like a standard PVD (physical vapor deposition) finish but involves using a unique material that increases the production time. The result of the material and additional time is a rich deep finish that not only looks great but also has a longer life compared to traditional PVD.

“Very often, wedge finishes can be beautiful, but they won’t last,” said Vokey. “At the same time, the most durable finishes often aren’t stunning. Slate Blue combines the two. Not only will golfers love their wedge when they see it in the shop, the finish will last through the course of normal play.”

When it comes to technology the Slate Blue Vokey wedges offer the same progressive forward center of gravity for increased MOI and ball flight control, along with 100-percent inspected spin milled grooves.

Price and availability

Vokey Design SM8 Slate Blue wedges will be available in golf shops starting March 19, and will be available in all 23 loft, bounce, and grind options in both right and left-handed.

The wedges will be priced at $199 in their stock configuration which features a True Temper Dynamic Gold S200 and custom BV Wings New Decade Multi Compound grip from Golf Pride.

Additional customizations such as character stamping are available for an additional fee.
