Based on the success of their Fast Twist thread and receptacle technology, Softspikes has developed the Tour Lock Insert System. The new technology also features Softspikes’ new patent pending Cross System Protection (CSP). The system utilizes an ultra-low receptacle profile that has been engineered to measure only 4mm to bring golfers closer to the ground.
Inserting a post in the base of the receptacle allows for cleats only developed for the Tour Lock system to fit in the shoe, therefore, eliminating the risk of improper cleats being inserted (and also the business risk that the golfer will buy cheaper or different cleats…).
Golfers will also enjoy the backward compatibility of the new technology, with Tour Lock cleats able to fit into any Fast Twist or Tri-Lok / Slim-Lok receptacle. The new Tour Lock system will be available in Softspikes’ new Silver Tornado aftermarket cleat.
The Tour Lock Insert System will be used in FootJoy’s flagship D.N.A., FreeStyle and HydroLite shoes in 2016.
